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.

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”
