The Switch Black Cherry All Natural Soda Review

The Switch Black CherryAre all natural sodas increasing in popularity? Do you drink them? When I discovered Izze, I thought I had died and gone to carbonation heaven. Sodas shouldn't be on your list of approved diet foods, but if you ever get a craving and seltzer just won't do it for you, then The Switch Black Cherry is a fabulous alternative.

The bubbly carbonation gently "bites" your tongue while a naturally sweet cherry flavor permeates throughout your mouth. The Switch (love the name) is made up of 100% juice mixed with filtered sparkling water, natural flavors and ascorbic acid. If you go to The Switch website, you'll see it says, 100% of what you want: 100% juice, 100% RDA Vitamin C, All natural, Carbonated, and great taste & refreshment (and they're right on). 0% of what you don't: no Corn Syrup, no added sugar, no preservatives, no artificial colors and gluten free.

Sodas should be one of the first simple substitutions you make when you're trying to lose weight. As good as The Switch Black Cherry tastes, each 8 ounce serving will cost you 130 calories, no fat, 14 mg of sodium (1% of the RDA), 31 grams of sugar and 100% of the RDA for Vitamin C. Yes, that means if you drink an entire bottle (1.5 servings), you will consume about 46 grams of sugar!

I purchased a 4 pack of 12 ounce bottles at Target (on sale) for $3.48, which is much more than if you buy Pepsi or Coca Cola products. This fruity beverage is definitely worth it, but only on those rare occasions when I drink soda. This makes an excellent all-natural replacement for sodas, but natural or not, too much sugar, especially from just a drink, is not good and should be avoided if you're trying to lose weight.
