Episode #159 Blue Sun Soda

In today's episode Andrea sits down with Mark Lazarchic, the owner of Blue Sun Soda 
We taste two of the options that Blue Sun make
Finally, we discuss the soda fountain and the pinball league

We would like to thank Mark for sitting down for an interview with Andrea, and for opening up about how it all came to be

The State Fair Chocolate Chip Cookies soda is incredible and really does taste just like baked cookies.

The Blue Cheese Dressing Soda, well, it really does taste like Blue Cheese Dressing with cane sugar. It's... interesting, but in the best way.

We really do suggest that you give the selection a shot, and you can contact them to see if their wares are available near you.
