Boylan Bottling Co. : Shirley Temple Soda

Hello Everyone!

The weather has been getting hotter out and the sun a little more scorching, well at least in the south. Out in the hot blistering sun, definitely makes me want to reach for a nice cold refreshing soda. Until recently, my beverage of choice has been of the main stream variety – high in sugar and caffeine. Now that I have been introduced to the specialty soda world, my tastes have changed.

With that thought in mind, today I have a review for Boylan Bottling Co.’s seasonal soda: Shirley Temple! Now if any of you have ever had the original Shirley Temple drink mix, you’ll recognize the similar flavors in this Boylan version as well. The original variation consists of: Lemon Lime flavored Soda, Grenadine Syrup and a maraschino cherry.  The Boylan version consists of: Ginger Ale, Dark Sweet Cherry, and Other secret ingredients and sweetened with Cane Sugar.

The flavor of The Shirley Temple was light and fruity, definitely can taste the black cherry. I prefer the black cherry addition to the heavy grenadine cherry syrup in traditional versions.  The price per drink is anywhere from $1.40-1.75 depending on where you go to get it, or if you order bulk.

American Flatbread Pizza

Hello Everyone!

I apologize for the long break in between posts, but sometime it is hard to get internet access, believe it or not. Today I have a review for American Flatbread, “homemade thin and crispy pizza baked in a wood fired oven.” Also have a giveaway for 2 coupons for FREE American Flatbread Pizza. Found this delicious pizza in my local whole foods store, but later on noticed it at HEB grocery stores. Love it when smaller companies break into the main stream market!

This wonderful flat bread pizza contains all organic ingredients, such as: organically grown wheat, kosher salt, organic tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, and the list goes on. Bottom line, all organic and delicious! I was very surprised at how much flavor this little pizza had! Definitely would recommend to anyone looking to still have pizza without giving up your organic diet / beliefs. Also this delicious dish is ready in 5-8 minutes. Preheat the oven to 425 F, place on the rack and *patiently* wait 5-8 minutes. VOILA! One really interesting fact about this company is that they build each of their flat bread ovens from the local geography. Their oven at the Marble Works in Middlebury has been built with a marble base, local to Middlebury. Also, their oven in Burlington Hearth is built of red rock, a common rock in the Burlington area.
