Our list of the best tasting soda that you can buy that does not contain any caffeine. Get your carbonated fix!
Many people reach for a soda (or pop as we call it in Michigan!) because they want the caffeine. Maybe because they need to stay alert or that coffee isn't available. Or its 100 degrees out and they don't like iced coffee!
If you are someone that is interested in drinking soda just for the fun and flavor but don't want the caffeine at all.
Let's make those drinks count. In this post I will share with you my favorite sodas that are non caffeinated. The "craft soda" business has been increasing in recent years. Now you can find many different places carrying glass bottled drinks that taste better than the standard offerings from Coke and Pepsi. For this post we are going to be focusing on these soft drinks.
Sprecher [All Flavors]
Right off the bat I have to mention Sprecher. They are a brewery out of Wisconsin that makes so of the most amazing soft drinks you'll taste buds will ever encounter. They call their drinks fire brewed and they use raw Wisconsin honey, although not the exclusive sweetener.
Their Puma Kola is a caffeine free cola that I actually think tastes better than either of the big two. Their root beer is good as well
My wife's favorite soda flavor is apple and the Sprecher Red Apple is at the top of her list.
Americana Honey Lime Ginger Ale
Americana is a brand of classic American bottle sodas. I first discovered them at my local Cost Plus World Market. All of their options are caffeine free. The best of the bunch is their Honey Lime Ginger Ale. The honey, lime, and ginger flavors all perfect compliment one another. It's an amazing drink.
Gale's Root Beer
One of the most unique root beers out there. It's only root beer I know containing cinnamon and ginger, both I think really work to give this caffeine free option a complex, tasty flavor.
Saranac Shirley Temple
You might not except to see a kiddie cocktail on this list, but this was definitely deserves to be. It has a strong cherry/lemon-lime flavor. I still can't believe how much I liked some. I found it just across the border in Ohio, I need to get back to get some more!
Boylan’s Creamy Red Birch Beer
Birch beer offers a more wintergreen type taste than root beer. Boylan's Creamy Red one is the best that I have found. Creamy is definitely the way to describe it. I had a local grocery store that unfortunately decided to stop carrying it. However I was able to get a ton of them on clearance. That was a fun time.
Boom Chugga Lugga Cherry Root Bear
Cherry cola is a popular combo, but you don't see adding cherry to root beer. After drinking this, I think cherry has a new best friend in root beer. The cherry used here is real Michigan cherries!

Jackson Hole Soda Co. Snake River Sarsaparilla
Sarsparilla is the cousin of root beer, and while there isn't a clear definition of the difference (read what I wrote in my review of Kutztown soda), this is my fav sarsparilla out there. Sadly I have only had it the one time, but if I see it again, I will be busting out my wallet.
Fitz's Strawberry Pop
For a long time I had trouble locating a good strawberry soda pop. It took a trip to St. Louis, Missouri for me to find the best strawberry pop out there, created by Fitz's. I visited their restaurant where you can drink fresh out of the tap soft drinks and watch the bottling process go on as you eat.
Frostop Vanilla Caramel Creme Soda
Last on the list is certainly not least. This cream soda made by Frostop has a wonderful caramel flavor that brings a whole new life to cream sodas. It can be hard to find sometimes, appearing it some store for a while, than disappearing. I need to search some out again.
