Smile makers.....and the ability to halve your age immediately...
My Cream Soda and Dandelion and Burdock Posh Pop drinks have inspired a flurry of emails and lovely comments recently! Its always lovely to receive feedback and I feel blessed and honoured to receive probably more than my fair share…….but I just love the way that my Cream Soda and D&B in particular just put a massive smile on everyone’s face.
Why I hear you ask? Its their ability to transport you back to childhood in an instance, and to evoke a wonderful feeling of nostalgia and good times. Both have the ability to halve your age in a nano-second…..and how many things have the magic to do that? There are so many memories associate with these two traditionally british flavours, and many a childhood memory built around enjoying these on special occasions and as weekly treats with grandparents.
Cream Soda is deliciously vanilla-y…and I added just a splash of Rhubarb when I was playing around with flavours which gives it a kind of modern twist right at the end. Cream Soda is distinctly English….and I’m proud that we’ve come up with such a great recipe that gets ‘ahhh’s’ all round when people taste it.
Dandelion and Burdock won a prestigious Great Taste Award a few years ago, so it does taste rather wonderful……I don’t use an artificial colours in it, so its a little bit lighter in colour than those very very dark D&B’s but it has a lovely natural appeal and tastes the better for it I would argue. The Great Taste judges described it as ‘ ‘Lovely colour, good flavour of dandelion and burdock, a light refreshing drink’’
So…..if you ever need to push back the years, please don’t head for the scalpel…head for the Posh Pop instead
Have a great weekend everyone
