Food Fact Friday

  All hail the mighty raspberry! 🙂 No, seriously… Raspberry is the most amazing fruit on the planet. I’m a little bias, it’s my favorite. But, I’m particular about how I like my raspberries. I don’t like things “flavored” like raspberries. For example, if I buy a lollipop it can’t be raspberry flavored. I think it’s pretty gross. You can freeze a raspberry & hand it over to me and call it a day though.   

I also love raspberry soda. Now, here’s where I’ll bite on my words a little bit. There are two raspberry flavored sodas that I love. Now, I will say that I was raised on these two sodas. Both sodas are popular in Latin American culture, Dominican particularly. The one below is my favorite. The other one is from the brand Goodo.
