Happy September everyone! We’re offering up some crisp beverage options that pair perfectly with this crisp fall weather. This month we want to focus on beverages that are great substitutes for soda. We know the soda habit is a hard one to beat, but having similar, healthier alternatives can be just what you need to get a head start on breaking the habit! Below, please find the best soda alternatives for your offices.


Olipop has quickly become a fan-favorite with its pre-biotic benefits, tasty flavors, and adorable branding. It is rising quickly on our best sellers list and we are so excited to announce the new flavor addition – watermelon lime. The line also has delicious alternatives for root beer and orange soda.
Flavors: root beer, orange squeeze, and watermelon lime

Zevia Cola

Zevia Cola is the perfect healthier substitute for traditional cola. With no calories, no sugar, and no artificial sweetener, but that same “cult classic” favorite flavor! It is sweetened using stevia leaf extract and still packs the caffeine!
Flavors: Cola


Mayawell gives a whole new definition to soda with properties that make for a happy, healthy gut! It is a pre-biotic soda that has fun and exciting flavors while still delivering that carbonated punch that we love!
Flavors: strawberry ginger, pineapple mango

Snack of the month shoutout

We are adding in a short segment each month giving a special shoutout to a snack that we thinks deserve some extra love each month! This month is the Rustic Bakery shortbread cookies. These cookies are an adorable individual serving of sweetness that perfectly fit into that post-lunch craving spot. They also have an added bonus of being “born and raised” locally to our friends in Sonoma County.
Flavors: Toffee shortbread and Double chocolate shortbread

In conclusion, we are always trying to stay ahead in this busy snack world and be the first to find innovative, healthier snack alternatives for the offices that are looking to provide such items for their employees. We hope that you all are having fun trying these new snack options available to you and look forward to continuing to search and find those hidden gems!


Happy snacking!
