Double Cola and Ski Soda Review

Double Cola and Ski soda made by The Double Cola Company

Review of two great sodas, Double Cola and Ski soda from one awesome company, The Double Cola Company

Disclaimer: Double Cola sent us a few samples to try in return for our honest review. Our purpose at Southern Food Junkie is not to tell you a product is good or bad but simply to share with you a brand you may not have heard of before.

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”
