The new release of Coke Zero Sugar got us thinking about soda. While we were making our way through the ingredients label to see how this newly-marketed drink differs from the original Coke Zero, we realized: we could be drinking soda without ingredients like aspartame or Splenda.
There’s a whole world of natural sodas out there ― and by natural we mean free of those questionable artificial sweeteners.
We rounded up 10 great options on the market today. Many of them rely on fruit juice and sparkling water, nothing else. Some add herbs, spices and ginger for an added kick, some use natural cane sugar for sweetness, and others call upon Stevia (which is made from a natural ingredient, but the verdict is still out on whether it’s considered to still be natural, so you use your discretion). But all of them are 100 percent refreshing.
