Italian Soda

A little annoucement: We will be celebrating ONE YEAR OF Tempt My Tummy Tuesday on July 7th. Woo hoo! One year of wonderful recipes and foodie tips. To Celebrate TMTT's Anniversary, Lisa and I are hosting a giveaway. It will be for our FAVORITE cookbook!! I KNOW you all LOVE cookbooks. So, join us on July 7th to enter for a chance to win!

(today's post is a repeat from last summer... since Lisa is discussing her favorite soda as well!)

Welcome to Tempt My Tummy Tuesday co-hosted by my sis Lisa and myself. If you have a great recipe or foodie idea, share it! Mr. Linky lives at Lisa's site, so be sure to visit after leaving a comment here.

Today I'm going to tell you about my new favorite drink. I had it for the first time last month and I swear to you...
I crave it! It is Central Market's Organic Blood Orange Italian Soda.

Frankly, I did not know what Italian soda was, but thought, I'd try. OH MY GOSH... so good, not just good, great. Refreshing, sweet with a hint of tart... such delight.

I know, many of you don't know what Central Market is. Well... it is a foodies dream come true. The best grocery store on the planet with a restaurant, and a cooking school and organic every thing and....oh ...I can't go on...

If you have a chance, try this great drink, or something like it.

I may have to make a trip to our Fresh Market to see if they have this. If not, you may have to have a contest to give one away! You have me craving something I have never had. It sounds yummy.

Central Market Italian Sodas are the best! Just found Prickly Pear Italian Soda at the Central Market in Fort Worth! It rivals the Blood Orange. And now the sodas are in plastic bottles!

Ah, these drinks are the best kept secret in the grocery store! I guess we all have our favorites. Mine are the Lemon and Grapefruit. I can literally taste the fruit in every swallow. Just perfectly made, delicious, and addictive. The only thing wrong are the tall skinny bottles- they keep falling over in my fridge. But it's not a deal breaker. Not even close!
