[Infographic] DRY Soda’s Savor the Flavor Tour – By the Numbers

Tuesday, November 20th, 2012

 

DRY Soda recently wrapped up the 2012 Savor the Flavor Tour and, while we’re sad that the Tasting Truck is laying low for the cold season, we’re so excited about all the fantastic things that happened on tour. Did you meet up with us on the Savor the Flavor tour? Have a suggestion for where we should go next? Let us know on Twitter and Facebook and let’s talk tour. Thanks for an amazing 231 tour days, DRY fans!

#DRYtour: Back to Southern California

Tuesday, September 25th, 2012

For some, September means back to school. For DRY Soda, September means back to SoCal.

DRY’s Savor the Flavor Tour spent ten wonderful weeks roaming around southern California in our Tasting Truck this spring and summer. After heading out for two months in Colorado and a short homecoming at DRY HQ in Seattle, the DRY Soda Tasting Truck and Savor the Flavor Tour are heading back to Southern California starting September 29th.

We’re ecstatic about the opportunity to return to a region that helped make our spring and summer a blast. We had so much fun and met so many amazing fans in SoCal that heading back was a no-brainer. And with the chill of autumn and winter coming to Seattle soon, the California sunshine certainly didn’t hurt the case.

The Tour’s second venture into southern California will last until November 4th, and the Tasting Truck will be serving sips in Los Angeles and Orange County areas at many Whole Foods Market, Bristol Farms and independent grocery locations. You can also expect to see the Truck at a lot of fun events in the region, as well as making special surprise stops in neighborhoods.

Be sure to keep up with DRY and the next leg of the #DRYtour on Twitter and Facebook, follow us on Instagram @drysoda, and we’ll see you on the road!

Delicious State-ments | California + Avocados

Thursday, August 2nd, 2012

California Avocados

It’s a little known (and completely untrue) fact that in 1968, when California’s official state nickname was being decided, the committee was in a dead lock between calling it The Golden State – due to the state’s Gold Rush history – or The Semi-Squishy-Creamy-Delicious-Green State – honoring the importance of avocados to the state. To finally settle this dispute, an avocado was halved and pulled apart, and the side with the pit favored The Golden State. After the committee enjoyed that decisive avocado in a bowl of communal, goodwill guacamole, the rest was history. With this, it’s very clear that the avocado is the perfect candidate to represent the great state of California.

California produces 90% of the United States’ avocado harvest, so next time you enjoy a bowl of creamy, chunky guacamole, point your praises toward the west coast. However, don’t pin the avocado as a one-trick pony; it can be enjoyed many ways besides guacamole alone. Try the three recipes below by some of California’s biggest foodies and let yourself fall in love with the avocado all over again.
