Subtle flavor. Clean taste. Great break from the ordinary whether you are an avid water drinker or not.
TL;DR - GREAT product that tastes infinitely better than those other popular brands of carbonated flavored water. Don't let the word "soda" scare you. It's just because it's bubbly. ACTUAL fruit juice is an ingredient that is easy to understand compared to "essences" the other advertised. A touch sweeter than the others though, due to using juice (15%), but nowhere near overpowering like regular soda. It hits just right. No weird chemicals on the label. Also - slightly caffeinated (except the Apple) My favorite is Mango. and I want to stress - *EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE*. Some of the best I've ever experienced (See story below). Give this company a shot. I've now bought a delivery subscription (optional). Worth every dollar.

This was a roller coaster with a happy ending!
After looking for an alternative to wanting something carbonated but not wanting to drink so much soda, my wife and I tried I bunch of those "Sparkling Water" brands that are out there. They are awful. I can't drink them and I really tried, because I wanted SOMETHING better for me than standard soda (or Zeros or Diet variations, etc). After constantly seeing ads on social media for Wave Soda, I decided to research it. Only 5 grams of sugar! Not bad. Caffeinated! Excellent. Small Company? Even better. REAL. JUICE. Thank heavens. We ordered the 24-can 6-flavor variety pack and unfortunately it arrived we discovered a poor packing job, one of the cans had burst in transit, the cans were dented, and had attracted ants - rendering a lot of the cans gross or needing cleaning. Unsure if due to rushed packing or FedEx's own incompetence (likely the latter) I immediately (politely) emailed Wave's customer service with pictures of what happened. Within a day I received a reply with an apology stating they were shipping me out a complete replacement! No questions were asked, no blame was passed. Just an immediate reply and solution! I was thrilled we'd get to try all the flavors after all and I didn't get any kind of runaround.
My replacement arrived without incident this time. Packing seemed more solid. FedEx seemed to have not manhandled it. But there was another issue. The 6-flavor pack is advertised on the site to include Apple, Cucumber, Mango, Tangerine, Blueberry, Blackberry (indeed, this is what we got in the first ruined shipment). Yet in this box, we received Grapefruit instead of Blueberry. This is an issue because, since it's flavored with real juice, neither I nor my wife could drink it for medical reasons, as grapefruit juice interferes with medications we take. I once again emailed customer service asking if we could send the grapefruit back or redo the whole order (offering to pay for shipping again) and they again immediately apologized and shipped us out a *12-pack* replacement of Blueberry totally free of charge the NEXT DAY. This is some of the best customer service I have ever experienced, and service as it should be. I'm a simple person. If I have issue with a product or service, I'll mention it to the necessary party, often with zero expectation except for an apology. I understand things happen. Not everything goes perfect. But if you're able - just fix it. They did just that. And This was above and beyond! THANK YOU.
Now - the product itself. Is WONDERFUL. It's got a similar mouth-feel to those sparkling water brands, but it's a little smoother. Also - it tastes SO MUCH BETTER. Because it uses fruit juice, rather than "essences" or whatever B.S. the others might put on their labels - it gives the drink a slightly sweeter (but not SUGARY-sweet) taste. Instead of tasting like half of a crushed Skittle diluted into some bubbly water with a weird "we sprayed the ESSENCE of a berry into this can" taste... it tasted like (*gasp*) FRUIT! I was hooked. The Apple is a little stronger than the rest flavor-wise, because apple tends to overpower anything. But it's still only a slight difference. The Cucumber isn't my thing (I don't even like regular cucumber water) but my wife is into and she drinks it often. The other flavors hit perfectly. Carbonated water, with just the right amount of proper sweet and flavoring thanks to the juice used. No weirdness on the labels either. My personal favorite is the Mango.
Bottomline - tremendous product. If you're even thinking about it or have seen the ads, or want something that's similar to those other popular brands but with a tiny bit more "oomph" and PROPER FLAVORING where you know what it is - TRY IT! Best customer service and a great product. It does what it says on the tin. They've got me as a repeat customer, and I'm now taking advantage of the optional monthly delivery. Wave Soda is awesome.
A nice light alternative to soda. It's not super sweet but that's a good thing, it makes them easy to drink and my teeth dont feel sticky and I dont feel bad about drinking 3 or 4 in a day.
Great soda! Makes an awesome mixer or just as is. The cucumber freaked me out before I tried it, but the flavor is absolutely amazing.
I love the fact that the ingredients list shows a small number of things that you can pronounce and do not require a degree in chemistry to understand.
There are a couple flavors that are not exactly my favorites, but they are all refreshing and have what I consider the perfect slightly sweet and tart taste that I love. I was an avid drinker of a competitor that has a big following in the carbonated citrus arena, and the Wave Soda offers a fantastic change of flavors and some with a touch of caffeine.
The introductory price isn't bad for the number of drinks that are shipped right to your door.
I was very skeptical at first but I actually really like all of the flavors. Even cucumber! This is such a great alternative to the other sugary sodas on the market. I get my fix from the carbonation and fruity flavor without feeling jittery from all of the sugar.
Mango is my favorite, but I love green apple too!
All the flavors are decent except the cucumber. I can’t get into it. The apple is the best. You should make a caffeinated version of that.
A refreshing soda! Not too sweet and like the polite cafination.
Love this stuff! Much more tasty than regular sodas or seltzers. It's neither cloying sweet, nor is it bitter. Stands well on it's own, and blends well with other drinks of your choice (the cucumber Wave soda, with gin? Perfection!). I highly recommend it to those that possess good taste, and want to try out something new and refreshing.
Definitely more flavorful than seltzer. The variety pack has a good assortment
My kids and I love Wave Soda! It has just the right balance of flavor. My girls absolutely love the blueberry and apple. Thank you for giving a healthier alternative to regular soda.
We really love the crisp flavors, especially the mango and blackberry. We love that it's a healthier alternative to regular soft drinks. We will definitely be purchasing again.
All the flavors taste great! I drink one at lunch and love the pick me up!
Wave soda is making Covid 19 bearable for my wife and I. Finely a soda that tastes good and is better for you. The cucumber is surprisingly delicious. Blueberry is my personal favorite. Keep them coming...Would love to see grapefruit flavor.
Love the flavors!!! Very quick, easy ordering process! Shipping was very quick. Will recommend to friends!
I LOVE New Wave Soda! It's so delicious and I'm excited to try every flavor! :)
