The Best Natural Sodas: Our Taste Test Results

11/02/2011 09:56 am ET | Updated Aug 31, 2012

America's health-conscious crusade against soda has made it crystal clear that we're not supposed to drink the stuff -- it's bad for us, period. But it's important to note that not all sodas are the enemy; mostly just the type laden with high-fructose corn syrup and artificial ingredients. So when you're craving something sweet and sparkly, what to do?

The KitchenDaily editors gathered 16 different brands of all-natural sodas to find the best in a blind taste test. Not a single one of these brands contains high-fructose corn syrup -- most are flavored with cane syrup, agave nectar, or other noted natural sweeteners. With a few exceptions, we were pleasantly surprised by the whole pack of contenders -- and we were happy to find that the two winners (there was a tie!) were unknown to all of us. We're excited to help you discover some new favorites, too!

See brand links in the slideshow below to find out where you can buy these sodas near you.
