Try it Tuesday....Tava Sparkling Beverage

Pepsi, you ROCK!

Pepsi has come out with a new sparkling beverage they call, Tava. Will you marry me Tava? Ok, that's a bit extreme. But I really really like this stuff! You might not like me doing 2 drinks in a row for Try it Tuesday, but I just had to!

I bought a bottle of Black Cherry Citrus flavored Tava at Target today. They were on sale. I paid a buck for a 16.9 ounce bottle. It's not really sparkling water in my opinion. It's soda. 0 calories, 0 sugar. The only difference in this pop from regular diet pop is that it has some vitamins. I know diet pop isn't considered good for you, but if they want to add a little bit of vitamins to it, then okey dokey. I'll take it.

The Black Cherry Citrus is the only flavor that I bought, but it's super yummy. I get so sick of the same old stand-by's that I drink. It's nice to add a bit of a change. I wouldn't say it's very "citrus-y" though. Not in my opinion. But I'd buy a case of this stuff regardless. They have 2 other flavors that I could see....Tropical Berry Blend and Passionfruit Lime. The cherry sounded most appealing to me at the time.

If you get a chance to try this, "sparkling beverage", go for it! You won't be sorry with the Black Cherry Citrus. Mmmm.

*Edit: I forgot to mention that Tava is caffeine free...whoopee!
*Edit again! (Wed, Feb. 20): I found the Tropical Berry Blend flavor at the grocery store tonight, so I thought I'd try that one too. Mmmm. It reminds me of the Lifesavers candies that came in all berry flavors....you know the old one that had grape in it (not the 5 flavors). I can't remember the name of the Lifesavers roll, but it was from when I was a kid. Gee..think I'm dating myself here. Lol. Anyway, the Berry was tasty, yet I still like the Black Cherry Citrus best so far. PLUS, there doesn't seem to be a deposit on these, so we save some moola there. But that doesn't mean we can't still recycle the bottle ya know :)

Oh, and did I forget to mention that I haven't noticed an after-taste? These drinks have me hooked! Gooooo try it!

Edit again....I just can't get enough of this stuff! (Sat. Feb 23): I have tried them all now. The Passionfruit Lime is tasty and a bit sweet. I like all the flavors, but my favorite is the Cherry. I love that it doesn't taste like diet yet has all the flavor of regular soda. Mmmmm.

3 Whaddaya have to say about this post?:

I tried it recently too and really liked it too! And I love that it's caffeine free since I've been cutting back :)

I hope it catches on...I'd hate to see this beverage get yanked like some do when they don't. Now I need to try the Passionfruit Lime. I love anything with lime.

-Ugh- I just noticed that Tava DOES have a deposit on it. Grr. They should put it right out there with the regular soda's then. I feel like it's kind of misleading being called a, "sparkling beverage".
