I am not typically falling over out of my shoes to get hold of diet colas sweetened with stevia, but Mountain Zevia (the Mountain Dew iteration, a caffeinated lemon/lime beverage) is pretty amazing. The caffeine kicks in pretty quickly (thank yew Jesus for that), and the refreshing taste of the Zevia definitely grew on me with each sip. This is a delicious soda. In fact, even my college student, usually jonesing for a Mountain Dew, really found favor with this caffeinated, kicky drink. (I had to hide part of the six pack behind vegetables to keep him from horking the rest.)
My only bummer? The difficulty of finding this soda in stores. Some of the standard flavors are there, but I’d love to see Dr. Zevia and Mountain Zevia hitting the shelves of more retailers. Lord knows I could use more caffeine… and my son just figured out my hiding spot.
