Bottled BenefitsIndie soda's calorie content often compares favorably with alcohol. Most beer brands weigh in around 150 calories per 12 ounces, with lite beer about two-thirds of that. Hard cocktails and wine are also caloric, with whiskey at 75 calorie per ounce and red wine nearly 100 calories per 4 ounces. Even a regular soda can have up to 160 calories for a 12-ounce can. Compare that to GuS, at around 90 calories for 12 ounces. Another plus of these adult sodas is that they are not as sweet as their big corporate counterparts. This more subtle sweetness -- without that heavy corn syrup overtone -- appeals to mature tastes. Also, many of these sodas are organic and use natural ingredients. For example, GuS is 100% natural, made with real juice and real flavor extracts, pasteurized and kosher, with no caffeine.
