Tempt My Tummy Tuesday… My Favorite Soda

by Lisa on June 22, 2009

Quick announcement: We will be celebrating ONE YEAR OF Tempt My Tummy Tuesday on July 7th. To Celebrate TMTT’s Anniversary, Lana 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!

Hello everyone and welcome to Tempt My Tummy Tuesday. My sister, Lana, and I co-host this blog carnival. We share recipes, kitchen and cooking tips, restaurant reviews, and anything food related that you want to share. You know the rule of a blog carnival, please mention the blog or TMTT in your post and link back to us. Don’t forget to use Mr. Linky, down below. PLEASE DO NOT HOST YOUR OWN Tempt My Tummy Tuesday with Mr. Linky. Thank You.

We just returned from our vacation in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. We were visiting family. In honor of our trip, I will tell you about the Sprecher Brewery. Many years ago, on our first trip to Milwaukee, our family took us on a tour of the Sprecher Brewery. We then became life-long fans! They make beer and sodas.

Now, let me start by saying I do not like beer. I have never enjoyed drinking beer and do not plan on “acquiring a taste” for it. Having said that, my husband and brother in law DO like beer and they enjoy drinking beer from the Sprecher Brewery. I, however, am a HUGE fan of their sodas.

Years ago, you could only get Sprecher products in Wisconsin and the surrounding states. That is changing and we having run across their products, on other places. However, not in East Texas. So….. we stocked up on the Root Beer ( my FAVORITE), Cream Soda, Orance Dream, Cherry Cola, and Puma Kola. To the left is a picture of the Sprecher we purchased and carried back to Texas. We brought 6 4-packs of the various sodas. YUMMY!

So, if you ever run across a bottle of Sprecher Root Beer, soda, or beer don’t pass up the opportunity to try it!! You won’t be disappointed. PROMISE.

I had a Root Beer Float at the Drive-In last week for the first time in a long time. It was great!
Thanks for hosting!

lisa, you can get sprecher right here in tyler, Texas. that's right, andy's frozen custard has the root beer and cream soda on tap and root beer, cream soda, orange dream and ginger ale by the bottle or in a four-pack. it is a little pricier than the coke products, but it is there!

I love special sodas like that, nice you get to stock up!

I love trying new root beers… it is my favorite. I'm with you on the beer… do not like it, never have and not about to acquire a taste for something I don't like. 😉

Happy Anniversary!
All Things Heart and Home


Emily @ Marvelous Recipes June 23, 2009 at 4:52 am

Congrats on your upcoming anniversary! Root beer is my all time favorite soda too. I have never heard of this brand though.


Heather @ Not a DIY Life June 23, 2009 at 5:00 am

It seems that every region has either a root beer or a ginger ale that is made in that area and can only be found there. Those are always so much better than the big brands. Thanks for sharing, and for hosting!


Melissa June 23, 2009 at 5:56 am

Sounds great! We like Cheerwine, a cherry soft drink that's only available in the North Carolina area. Last time we visited there, we brought home a couple of 12-packs. 🙂


Stacy June 23, 2009 at 8:43 am

I posted a link to my strawberry rhubarb crisp recipe. Thank you for hosting!!


Nanna June 23, 2009 at 8:56 am

I've never heard of that brand of root beer, but I know that root beer & choc. swrile or as it's know ripple ice cream makes for a gret icecrem float! LOL


Pami June 23, 2009 at 9:23 am

Mmmmmm! Now that I'm pregnant, root beer is my favorite soda! I hope I come across this brand!


jsprik June 23, 2009 at 10:30 am

i'm not a big fan of beer, either, but i do enjoy a good root beer!! 😉

Congratulations on your mile stone!

I wonder if it is anything like Stewart's root bear (a favorite of my husband's).

I'm not sure I've seen this kind in Indiana.


mub June 23, 2009 at 3:21 pm

My husband would be in heaven! Beer AND root beer *L* It's so funny because root beer isn't very popular in The Netherlands and he hadn't tried it until he came and visited me in the US. Now it's near the top of his list of favorites!


Lisa June 23, 2009 at 5:31 pm

Mmmm, all of the varieties sound good to me!


Tara @ Feels like home June 23, 2009 at 6:41 pm

I love that I am posting on Tuesday evening, and I'm #71. Your carnival has become so successful, and I'm very very happy to see. 🙂
