Review/Giveaway: Zevia Soda ***CLOSED***

Hey everyone, sorry that I haven't had a review in a while, just moved and that takes way more time than I thought! Anywho, it is time for a new review!

Zevia Natural Diet Soda is marketed as "Nature's answer to Diet Soda."  Now typically when I hear something as "All Natural" I think that it probably doesn't take that good.  With Zevia Natural Diet Soda that couldn't be further from the truth! This was some of the tastiest diet soda I have had in a long time. With most diet soda, it has that typical diet soda taste.  Ever been to a restaurant and you ordered a regular cola and someone else ordered Diet?  You always take a quick taste of it before just to make sure right? Well with this soda you really wouldn't be able to tell the difference. When I compared this soda to popular other brands of soda, I really couldn't tell the difference.  My favorite of the flavors has to be the Ginger Root Beer.  It had so much flavor! A friend of mine who hates diet soda, she was over while I was testing the drinks out. After she saw the look on my face of pure joy after trying the root beer, she looked at me like I was crazy. I told her to have some, she tried and she could not believe how amazing it really was.  

Zevia Natural Diet Soda is the first all natural zero calorie soda. Yes thats right ZERO CALORIE! Again, you are probably asking you self how is that possible, "Brandon, how can something that is all natural and zero calories taste good?"   I used to ask myself the same question. But I now know that it is possible and Zevia Natural Diet Soda has proven that, extremely well.  Zevia Natural Diet Soda is made with Stevia plant.  Stevia is an herb in the sunflower family, native to subtropical and tropical South and Central America.  The World Heath Organization has approved Stevia and has also said that Stevia has great health bennifits.  I could tell you all the heath bennifits of this amazing plant but why not just go to the  Zevia Natural Diet Soda website yourself and see everything they have to say about it! 

Wanna find out just how amazing this soda really is? Now is your chance to win some for yourself!

Review: WAT-AAH!

Hey everyone!

This week's review is on WAT-AAH! bottled water.

Everyone knows that drinking water is good for you. But sometimes you need something with more of a kick and something more exciting to drink.  Water usually does't cut it, at least not until now. WAT-AAH! is more than just water.  WAT-AAH! started when a group of moms were trying to figure out how to get their kids to drink water. After the mom's finally asked their kids what it would take for them to drink water, they kids all agreed that water was boring. The moms and their kids got to work and figured out how to make water more exciting and WAT-AAH! was born.

WAT-AAH! markets themselves as water by kids for kids.  So now I am sure you are asking yourself, why than  am I, a college boy, blogging about it?  Well plain and simple, College students need to drink water too!  College students are probably more guilty of going for the sugary sodas and other *drinks* that are bad for you than going for the water.

WAT-AAH! comes in four forms, Brain, power, body, energy.  Each are ultra purified water but each have their own special qualities. Brain is full of electrolytes, power has bone-building magnesium, body is pure spring water with nothing else, and energy is full of oxygen which helps boost energy.

Now, yes, there are no flavors in this water, its tastes like water. The only one that was a bit strange to me was the power water as you can taste magnesium metal in the water.

So don't drink _____, drink WAT-AAH!

Wanna try WAT-AAH! for yourself? just go to and click the where to get WAT-AAH! tab, type in your zip code and it will give you a list of places where you can get your own supply of WAT-AAH!

Review/Giveaway: Herbal Water **CLOSED**

This week's review is on Ayala's Herbal WaterAyala's Herbal Water's philosophy is that the best nutrients come from food not from artificial supplements.  Ayala's Herbal Water is the first beverage that is USDA Organic approved. Ayala's Herbal Water comes in 6 flavors.  My favorite was a tie between the Lemongrass Mint Vanilla and the Cinnamon Orange Peel.  What I liked the most about these drinks was that even though they are water, they still have a great amount of flavor.  These drinks make great replacements for sugary sodas.  Ayala's Herbal Water tag line is Zero is good. I couldn't agree more.  "Zero calories.  Zero artificial additives.  Zero preservatives.  Nothing to worry about.  Just 100 percent natural goodness and wonderful taste!"  At first I when I found this product I though "Curious and Curiouser." I wasn't sure how a drink made from herbs was going to taste.  I was pleasantly surprised with the drinks I received.  Now is time for to see how tasty Zero really can be.  

One of my lucky readers is going to win a sample pack of 6 Ayala's Herbal Water. One of each flavor.  You will also receive an Ayala's Herbal Water canvas tote bag.  Here is what you need to do in order to qualify to win:
