Would you like me to review your soda, seltzer, or other carbonation-related product? Would you be interested in having your brand featured on my YouTube channel or this web page? If so, you’ve come to the right place!
How to get an item reviewed
Please use my contact form to reach out to me, so we can find out if your product is a good fit. Chances are, if it has anything to do with beverages or carbonation, it will be, assuming it’s not something I have already reviewed. You can check my list of previous reviews here. Note that I often carbonate much more than just beverages. Thus, many edibles, particularly wet ones, are still an excellent fit. Just know that if your product isn’t carbonated when if arrives at my doorstep…it will be by the time I review it.
What to expect from my review
I do want to make it clear that I review every item in the same way, and with the same honesty, regardless of whether I purchase the item myself or have it provided to me free of charge. I also always disclose how the item came to me to be reviewed, in accordance with good blogging practice and FCC regulations. So rest assured that my audience will know not only your generosity, but also that they are getting my honest opinion about your product.
That said, I have attempted to make my review system as objective as possible, and my opinion of whether or not I like something is clearly stated as an opinion, because I realize that no two sets of tastebuds will ever agree completely on anything. I also do not stigmatize high fructose corn syrup or “chemicals” in soda. I simply read the ingredients, and let the viewer decide. This is because I believe all calories are good calories, and sodas are a wonderful everyday indulgence that almost everyone can afford.
A note about non-nutritive sweeteners: I personally have a sensitivity to aspartame and acesulfame-K. It is mild, as long as I consume it in small quantities, such as for a soda review. So while I am open to reviewing concoctions which contain these sweeteners, it may happen more slowly than with sodas containing other sweeteners, as I can only review one such soda every few days.
Affiliate links and income
I also always try to provide a link to a place where my audience can purchase the item beimg reviewed. Whenever possible, I ensure that these links aee affiliate links, so as to ensure a modest income to help offset hosting and other fees associated with operating my site and YouTube channel, such as purchasing items to review, and supplies for crafting recipes. If an item is provided, I will also happily include a link to the provider’s website.
Generally speaking I do not review alcoholic beverages. However, I will consider requests to review them on a case-by-case basis. In addition, I am open to reviewing mixers intended for use with alcoholic beverages. Just know that I will likely be reviewing them in a non-standard fashion, either via non-alcoholic “virgin” versions of their usual recipes, or outside-the-box applications such as being used as soda ingredients.
Sending Items for Review
Please contact me before sending anything for review. Assuming your offering is a good fit as described above, I can provide you with a shipping address appropriate to the item and shipping method (P.O. box or physical address).
