Oogave's Refreshing and Natural Soda Plus a {Giveaway!}

Everyone needs a treat once in awhile! I am always on the look out for more natural options so that I can treat myself while doing the least amount of damage to my diet. (I know that I am also often driving my husband insane as I comb through ingredient list after ingredient list.) Recently, I tried Oogave's Natural Soda. I do love to get my soda-fix in now and then. However, I always feel guilty when it comes to those pesky ingredients. Oogave is a great option for a carbonated treat because it is not full of all of the chemicals found in other sodas. It is made from natural ingredients right down to the agave nectar that sweetens the bubbly beverage.

A little about Oogave: Esteban Anson was running a small natural foods restaurant in Denver when he was inspired to create all natural sodas. With his commitment to serving his customers products that were all natural, he recognized that there is a paucity of such products in the soda industry. With his preferred sweetener, agave nectar, in hand, he developed a healthier alternative to the average soda. He began serving the sodas in his restaurant in 2005 and they have been catching on ever since.

The flavors:  When I first thought about trying a natural soda, I had no idea that there could be so much variety. Oogave has 8 flavors! The flavors are watermelon cream, ginger ale, cola, vanilla cream, mandarin key lime, grapefruit, strawberry rhubarb, and root beer.

Taste testing!



So, how did they taste? We have tasted the grapefruit, mandarin key lime, vanilla cream, and ginger ale varieties so far. We found each of them to be crisp and refreshing--just what you want in a soda. With none of us liking grapefruit, we were very surprised to love the grapefruit flavor so much. We also found the mandarin key lime to be enjoyable and refreshing. The vanilla cream was a little too vanilla for us. The ginger ale had a truly fresh ginger taste. If you love ginger, this is a great soda for you! All in all, a successful tasting venture and the discovery of a new product that we love!

Take a look at a glass of the cool, crisp ginger ale:



Some more interesting things about Oogave: There is so much to learn about this awesome company! Oogave's sodas are not only all natural but they are also certified organic. Also, Oogave has some neat things on their website including a farm-to-table story about where Oogave comes from. Take a look here! Also, each bottle is only 100 calories. Much better than a can of traditional soda!
