New Product!

If I told you that we found an all natural organic soda, that is caffeine free, that is also fair trade, uses natural brewing methods, natural sweeteners, uses bio diesel to distribute,and gets their ingredients through environmentally sustainable farming methods that protect the Farmer's heath would you believe me? How about if I told you it's delicious? How about if I told you it is also not very pricey? 
I want to introduce you all to Maine Root Soda! 
Hubby and I came across this product quite by accident. We were shopping at a local grocery store that has an extensive organic section. We found this brand. They make several flavors. We tried the blueberry soda and the ginger brew. Both were delicious. I am sold! For four bottles at only 5$ it was well worth the price. 
All of their sodas use Evaporated Cane Juice as a sweetener. Not only is this farmed by Fair Trade means but is all natural and not chemically altered like High Fructose Corn Syrup. 

This is what Maine Root has to say:  (http://www.maineroot.com/index.php)
"We use Organic Evaporated Cane Juice to sweeten our sodas. This sweetness is made by passing the whole sugar cane through a set of rollers, then drying the extract into crystals, no extra processing and no additives. Organic Evaporated Cane Juice sweeteners are derived from the first carbohydrate of photosynthesis, sucrose. Bottom line is that it tastes better, and since it is Organic, it is better for you, better for the farmers, and better for the ecosystem. By buying this product you are supporting Organic Farming, Organic Farmers, and helping create a demand for non GMO products. THANKS! For local Portland delivery, Maine Root is dropped off in a Vegetable Powered VW Diesel. The Jetta “pickup truck” was converted by Matt to run on Recycled fryer oil collected from local restaurants. It’s true, smell the exhaust pipe, it smells like Chinese food or French fries (depending where the oil came from). In fact he first diesel engines (invented by Rudolf Diesel in the late 1800's) were actually designed to run on plant oils. By using “waste” oil as fuel, we are utilizing a product that was destined for a landfill. Even better, the emissions are MUCH, much cleaner! Tests vary, but results show that running on SVO (Straight Vegetable Oil) produces 40% less soot than diesel, and 50 - 75% cleaner overall. Not only is SVO a renewable resource that's better for your engine, but it's eco-friendly as well. All that and a case of Root Beer!"
