Review: SoBe Yumberry Pomegranate

One afternoon while waiting in line at the grocery store to check out I noticed the new SoBe 0 calorie, but naturally sweetened lifewaters display. This is my first experience with any kind of flavored water (except crystal light) and my first experience with the SoBe brand. I must say this is tasty stuff, certainly not something I would drink daily or buy in large quantities but I would pick one up every now and again. The flavor is great, really crisp, slightly sweetened with just the right amount of fruit flavor. This is my second taste of stevia, a natural sweetener not made from sugar like splenda. Stevia comes from the Stevia Rebaudiana Bertoni plant and not sugar cane - it has been found to be safe for diabetics and contains 0 calories. Purevia is the brand used in the SoBe drinks but is also sold in bulk or in individual packets from the grocery store. As with all artificial sweeteners, they should be used in moderation, ideally no more than four servings per day.
