Unicoi Preserves | Product Review

Unicoi Preserves is a small batch mountain grown goodness fruit spread

Back in the summer of 2014, our family took our yearly vacation in Helen, Georgia. While there, we visited a state park called Unicoi State Park. Meanwhile, I had just gotten over back surgery and was told to do lots of walking. There was a waterfall that we wanted to see that was a moderate hike to get to. It was a great accomplishment for me and since then that park has a special place in my heart. Fast forward to this year, I came across a company with the same name as the park.

It seems like the late 1800’s and early 1900’s was a booming time for soda. Equally important is nearly all of the sodas created at that time were created in the South. The South has contributed many unique foods, snacks, and drinks throughout the years so it is no surprise that after all these years the South is still the King of Sodas. One Soda company that is still making awesome soda from that era is Double Cola Company. This is the review of Double Cola and Ski Soda. Continue reading “Double Cola and Ski Soda Review”

Stubborn Soda Black Cherry with Tarragon Flavor

To truly create something great you have to do it the Stubborn Way.

Every since that first sip of ice cold soda, people have been hooked on it. Soda is fizzy, sweet, bubbly, and refreshing. People love soda and it is evident by how much the two big ones, Coke and Pepsi sell. Now soda is like fast food or other sweets, it is meant to be enjoyed on occasion and not an everyday thing. Most of the big companies have resulted to using cheaper ingredients like high fructose corn syrup that is not as good for you. Meanwhile, there are a plethora of craft sodas that are popping up that offer better ingredients like real cane sugar and no artificial flavors. This week we are reviewing Stubborn Soda Black Cherry with Tarragon Flavor. Continue reading “Stubborn Soda Black Cherry with Tarragon Flavor”
