But when the folks at Bai Beverages contacted me and asked if I wanted samples, I figured I'd give it a shot, particularly since they said that their sodas (Black, Bai base, Superteas, Cocofusion and Bubbles all had "5 calories, 1 gram of sugar and no artificial sweeteners."
Well, okay then. I figured that they wouldn't be super-sweet, so I said, sure, I'll take a few, but skip the Cocofusion (it's coconut-based) and the Superteas (I'm not that crazy about canned tea).
They hooked me up with plenty of the other flavors. I've been drinking one pretty much every day, as a little treat. So far, I think I like the canned fruit-flavored sodas the best, but the Black are kind of fun, too. There's a cola-flavored drink, a gingery one, and a cream soda type. The fruity bottled ones are nice, too. Fruity flavor, refreshing, but not like dessert in a bottle.
I have to say that I'm glad that these sorts of drinks have appeared on the market, for the times when I don't want to make my own flavored fizzy water. These are sooooo convenient. And tasty.
Who's it for: People who want non-sweet sodas.
Pros: Low calorie.
Cons: If you drink a lot of soda, I suspect these could to be an expensive habit.
Wishes: Root beer, please!
