PRODUCT REVIEW – Virgil’s Zero Diet Sodas

I am not a big soda drinker, however I do enjoy a root beer float from time to time since soda seems more like dessert to me than a drink to quench my thirst.  Reed’s recently sent us some of their Virgil’s Zero all natural sodas to try.   I have to say that I really enjoyed making floats with Virgil’s Zero Rootbeer and their Black Cherry Cream Soda along with some So Delicious Vanilla Bean Coconut Milk Ice Cream.  My kids were on cloud nine when they came home from school and I handed them root beer floats.

What I really like about Virgil’s sodas is that they are sweetened with Stevia and their ingredient list is small and pronounceable!!!  If I am going to have soda as a treat I don’t want it to be loaded with sugar and artificial flavors.  Virgil’s Zero Sodas have:

“No preservatives, no caffeine and no artificial anything in addition to being gluten free!”

The flavors that we were sent to try were Virgil’s Zero:

  • RootbeerSuper yum!
  • Cream SodaJust like the original I remember as a kid
  • Black Cherry Cream Sodagreat flavor and really nice with vanilla ice cream
  • Real ColaOur least favorite…my husband (aka Mr. Diet Pepsi) was not a fan…bummer because I would really like to get him off Diet Pepsi.
  • Dr. BetterMy son LOVED this one.

I recommend you give these sodas a try if you are looking for a better alternative to conventional soda and diet soda which are loaded with HFCS and artificial sweeteners respectively.

  1. Your primary photo made me smile. When I come to the US each year one of the first things I grab is a bottle of Virgils Root Beer. It is SO GOOD. Full on ginger. LOVE it. The Cherry is good too but the Root beer kicks. Time for a trip I think!

  2. I can’t wait to try these! I don’t drink a lot of soda either, but sometimes they really do taste so good. Love that they are caffeine free as well. 🙂

    Wow, what a fantastic blog! I found you from another site, and I love the versatility of your posts. We cut out soda about a year ago, but having a root beer float without all the unhealthy additives would be a nice treat for my kids as well. Thanks for the review.

  4. Virgil’s does make a great tasting and “healthier” soda. Trader Joe’s has a few of their own brands cola, root beer, and orange cream that are also great. They contain sugar but at least it is real sugar.
