What is OLIPOP Soda?
OLIPOP is a sparkling tonic filled with prebiotics, plant fiber, and botanical extracts to support your digestive health. Each can is Non-GMO, gluten-free, paleo, and keto-friendly and is free from artificial preservatives, sweeteners, colors, and flavors.
OLIPOP comes in 9 fun soda-style flavors, like Root Beer and Vintage Cola, and each can includes 1/3 of your recommended daily dose of fiber. And unlike regular soda and kombucha, there is less sugar and no vinegar taste.
OLIPOP vs KOMBUCHA: Since this isn’t your average chemical-filled soda, we compared the price of OLIPOP to other drinks that contain prebiotics and fiber and are good for digestion, like kombucha.
We found that the price of OLIPOP is similar to high-end kombucha drinks sold online but more expensive than some kombucha drinks found in the grocery store. And unlike kombucha, OLIPOP comes in fun soda-like flavors and do not have a vinegar taste!
OLIPOP can be purchased on the OLIPOP website as well as on Amazon and in select stores across the United States including Whole Foods, Mom’s Organic Market, Giant Food Stores, Earth Fare, Wegmans, and more.
The natural ingredients used in OLIPOP, including plant fiber, prebiotics, and botanicals, were selected based on scientific research and have a proven track record of fueling the microbiome in our gut and improving digestive health.
For our OLIPOP soda review, we received two variety packs. Each of which contained two cans of 6 OLIPOP soda flavors (Vintage Cola, Classic Root Beer, Cherry Vanilla, Orange Squeeze, Ginger Lemon, Strawberry Vanilla). In addition to these six flavors, OLIPOP soda also comes in Orange Cream, Tropical Punch, and Classic Grape.
These fun soda-style flavors make getting more fiber easy and delicious.
OLIPOP comes in 12 oz cans that can be purchased in packs of 12. Each can contains 9g of dietary fiber, which is around 1/3 of the amount of daily fiber recommended by the FDA, and combined with the added prebiotics help to improve digestive health.
In addition, each can of OLIPOP has 5g or less of sugar and under 50 calories thanks to the natural sweeteners used including Stevia, natural sugars from fruits, and natural cassava syrup which add sweetness without adding a lot of calories or sugars.
These digestive tonics are also free from artificial preservatives, sweeteners, colors, and flavors and are Non-GMO, Vegan, Gluten-Free, Paleo, and Keto-friendly.
TIP: OLIPOP recommends refrigerating your cans upon arrival as they taste best when refrigerated and, if left unrefrigerated for an extended period of time, the prebiotic fibers may start to break down and become less effective.
You might be wondering how OLIPOP soda makes you feel? With all that fiber and prebiotics I was a little worried about how my stomach would react. The good news is that none of the reviewers had any sort of stomach troubles after drinking OLIPOP 🙂
All of the reviewers commented on the lack of bubbles that one comes to expect from a soda-like product. As we talked about it, we came up with the idea of using several OLIPOP flavors for mixers in adult beverages, sort of like a digestif.
Here are our favorites:
OLIPOP Vintage Cola + Rum
OLIPOP Ginger Lemon + Tequilla
OLIPOP Orange Sqeeze + Prosecco (we also liked the OLIPOP Strawberry Vanilla/Cherry Vanilla and Prosecco)
We agreed that OLIPOP’s soda-like flavors make for great mixers! With these adult beverages you don’t miss the bubbles and they rarely have an aftertaste. I’m not sure how the alcohol is mixing with the prebiotics, but you are still getting a fiber-packed drink that is lower in calories than most mixed drinks.
OLIPOP is a sparkling tonic filled with prebiotics, plant fiber, and botanical extracts to support your digestive health. Each can is Non-GMO, gluten-free, paleo, and keto-friendly.
We love that OLIPOP comes in 9 fun soda-style flavors and is free from artificial preservatives, sweeteners, colors, and flavors, but with far less sugar than regular soda and no vinegar taste like with kombucha. We also like that OLIPOP is packed with prebiotics and about 1/3 of the recommended daily dose of fiber to support our gut health.
And while we love the gut support OLIPOP is providing, some flavors did leave an aftertaste and all reviewers commented on the lack of bubbles. In addition, when we compared OLIPOP to grocery store products with prebiotics and fiber we found it to be expensive, but in line with high-end kombucha found online.
We would recommend OLIPOP to anyone looking for a tasty way to up their fiber intake and support their gut health, for those who have tried kombucha and don’t like the vinegar taste, and to any soda-lover looking for a soda-like drink with fewer calories and no artificial ingredients.
