SweetLeaf® Liquid Stevia Sweet Drops™ Cola Review

"SweetLeaf® has developed more consumer stevia sweetener products than any other single company, from a tabletop sweetener and flavored drops to tablets and a convenient shaker bottle, to SweetLeaf’s baking product, SugarLeaf™, which has 2/3 fewer calories than sugar." 
I am a huge soda drinker, and before I switched to Veri Organic Soda (among other healthier, organic brands), I used to drink Coca-Cola religiously (yeah, I know). So, being a huge soda fan, I was thrilled when I received the opportunity through Moms Meet to try Cola SweetLeaf® Liquid Stevia Sweet Drops™!

So, you're probably wondering why you should even consider making the switch from your regular diet soda. Well, according to a 10-year study presented to the American College of Cardiology by Dr. Ankur Vyas of the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinic in Iowa City in March 2014, women who drank two or more diet drinks in a day were 30% MORE likely to have a heart attack or other cardiovascular related event and were 50% more likely to die during those cardiac episodes than women who rarely consume diet drinks. 

This study suggests a link between regular consumption of diet soda and heart disease in women.
“Many people tolerate some chemical content in exchange for zero calories and zero carbs. This, of course, is a personal choice, but why take the risk,” said James May, CEO and Founder of Wisdom Natural Brands®, the maker of SweetLeaf Stevia® Sweetener.

.....Especially when there is a natural, health-conscious alternative: Cola Sweet Drops
So, what EXACTLY are Cola SweetLeaf® Liquid Stevia Sweet Drops™ and what makes them a better-for-you alternative?
Read some of the unique characteristics below!

The first kit I received was accidentally sent instead of the actual kit so, instead of the blog being completed by the end of August, I ended up having to extend it. The first kit (pictured below) included a 6 ml sample, a product informational card, and a coupon to share with you (that, unfortunately, expired in July). 

I recently received the larger sample in the mail 

and now....

For the review!

Okay, so the instructions are extremely simple. 
For every ounce of sparkling water, add two drops of Cola Sweet Drops™ (or to taste).
I started out going exactly by the instructions and using two drops per every ounce.

I used Canada Dry All Natural Original Sparkling Water 16.9 fl oz.
It is caffeine free, unsweetened, zero calories and zero sodium. 

I didn't want to drink an ENTIRE bottle so, I used a measuring glass
and poured in the amount I wanted and then added two drops per every ounce.

After putting in the drops, I was pretty confused. I suppose I expected the solution to turn a "cola colour" but it remains clear in appearance. Now, for the taste test!

So, I definitely ended up having to add additional drops to get the "taste" I wanted, but once I got to the taste I desired, I have to say, the drops really weren't all that bad. No bitter aftertaste and it actually tasted BETTER than diet soda.

Unfortunately, not EVERYONE in the household felt the same way - mostly preferring regular soda instead. So, while the Cola Sweet Drops™ weren't a WIN with everyone, they are certainly one of the best alternatives I have ever tasted so, if you're looking for a healthy, natural, gluten-free, soda alternative that's convenient and a great value, I highly recommend you try these out! 

(Oh, and did I mention....they have 20+ flavours!)
