Diet Vernors Zero Calorie Ginger Soda


Just had to post this.

Ver­nors—they make this great, tasty drink. It’s a diet, zero calo­rie gin­ger ale soda. I just can’t believe the taste. Think of it as sparkling water with more taste. I guess the only down­side from it is the 25mg of Sodi­um (Na) per can. But that’s only 1% of the aver­age 2,000 calo­rie diet1.

Any­ways, thought I’d share it. Give it a try. Great alter­na­tive if you are try­ing to cut your soda intake and/or can’t stand the taste of sparkling water. That or just need some umph to burp.
