FYI There is a new soda out called "Zevia" or something close to that. I found it at Whole Foods a while back, and tried it. Unfortunatly I tried it at room temp and wasn't impressed, but it may be better cold
. I like Stevia, but with the amount that is in the soda it tasted bitter to me.
As for Quarn products, they are great in texture, but because they are made from mushrooms they have an earthy flavor the some may not like. Although I'm not alergic to mushrooms, I don't eat them, so when I found out that the were the base for the product I understood why the flavor tasted a bit off to me. If you prepare it with a sauce or topping that masks that flavor, it is a great option for a meat free diet.
