I'm not a fan of soda, but Poppi isn't your typical soda. I was FaceTiming a friend when they shared that they had been drinking Poppi, a gut-friendly soda, nonstop and that they really enjoyed it. Intrigued by the concept of a healthy soda, I had to try it for myself, especially because the sodas have little sugar — five grams or less — prebiotics, and natural flavors, and offer a seemingly all-around healthy yet delicious experience.

I can't remember which flavor I tried first, but all you need to know is that Poppi is so good. The first thing I noticed was that the soda didn't have that weird, slightly nasty no-sugar or sugar substitute taste to it. I also loved how rich each flavor was. The ginger lime ($30 for a pack of 12) is my absolute favorite and tastes exactly like ginger beer, in my opinion. I've tried almost every flavor, and I'm impressed by how flavorful these sodas are without all the additives and other ingredients that aren't good for your health.

The pros of Poppi sodas are that they're made with minimal ingredients that don't sound like a bad science experiment, they're rich in flavor, and they may improve your gut health. The cons: they don't stay in the fridge for long. Although I'm not a soda girl, I've really enjoyed Poppi. It's a great, healthy alternative to the major soda brands.
