An interesting side, I did not know this…but seems Pepsi Co. now owns Dr. Brown’s. One of the reasons it is popular in New York and Florida is because it is kosher. It was in fact developed by a doctor (as were a lot of sodas/elixirs) to treat sick children in the late 1800’s. The original flavor (or the “medicine”) was Cel-Rey.
With this we’ll now pit the winners from each region against one another to determine the best national representative from each category. Voting will open tomorrow and close Sunday August 9th at 11:59 pm EST. I’m very excite (Borat anyone?) about this and interested to see who wins. You can look back on who won the other regions (South, Central & West).
