Drink No Evil With Karma Cola

Hey Cats,

You may have seen some really stylish drinks popping up in your local Waitrose and all over Instagram. They have quickly become a blogger favourite because of the stylish bottle designs and ethical attitudes. Karma Cola encourage you to say no to food and drink which doesn't look after the world and the people we live in and proves that you can have just as good tasting drinks when you do think more organically. Karma colas fizzy drinks are made with fair-trade ingredients and good sugars. You may not know that white sugars you generally find have been bleached with sulphur to give it that super white look. Lets avoiding adding anything unnecessary into our food. By buying fair-trade you can also support farmers to ensure they get treated with not just the right wages but the respect they deserve. Coming from a farming background this is really important to me.


There are 3 different flavours currently available which we are going to talk about and keep reading because I learnt so much about each one. First up is the Karma Cola a classic cola drink. I was surprised to find out that cola is actually a nut and Karma Cola were the first to start sourcing fair-trade cola farming. Money from every bottle goes back to supporting farmers in Boma and Tiwai  in Sierra Leone, which has meant so many young children have been able to get an education, built bridges and enriched the local communities, All that because you were thirsty! The real question is how does it taste...I was worried it would taste like cheap cola you buy but I was super surprised to find that it tastes very similar to a crazy popular brand so many people love Although carbonated it isn't super fizzy which really allows you to taste the flavours sweetened with organic vanilla and cane sugar.



Next up is Gingerella a kick ass ginger ale which had to be my favourite. This one takes us around the world to Sri Lanka helping local communities grow the money raised so far has gone towards education and hospitals. Having been to Sri Lanka and worked in some schools there the need for more funding is vital. Ginger has lots of natural benefits it fights colds, boost circulation and even helps build your immune system up. I really loved the flavour of this ginger ale not too sweet and just enough kick to have you wanting more. The designs for the label on this on was also my favourite with Gingeralla being a kick ass mother nature foxy brown inspired character.


Around the world again this time landing in Sicily to pick lemons from fair-trade farms that get a huge amount of sunlight producing chemical free juicy lemons. Lemony is the drink with the least ingredients with a lot of the flavour coming straight from the lemons. I found this one to be more like american style sweet lemonade which wasn't bitter at all and so has a really smooth taste to it. So if you find yourself near Waitrose pop in and pick up a few to see which is your favourite they are only around £1.50 and remember where they money goes.

Have you tried any of Karma Cola's drinks?
