The Freshmobile Review

If I had to choose an official beverage of summer, limeade makes a pretty good candidate for the honor. I often associate this refreshing brew with street fairs and markets, and love how it perfectly blends sweet and sour. While exploring around the colorful menagerie that is Eastern Market, a combined farmers’ market and flea market in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of D.C., I wandered through the food vendors, not quite […]

After recapping the sweets that topped the charts for me, let’s switch gears a bit and focus on more savory, sustaining options.  This review focuses on the meals (or substantial meal components) and beverages that stood out from the pack.

Maine Root Soda Review

When it comes to beverages, my preferred drink of choice is water. Soda just does not appeal to me, especially since most brands pump their soft drinks up with caffeine, fake sugars, and other ingredients that spell disaster for your metabolic system. However, during the “Baltimore Blizzard” at the end of January, I was snowed in for 72 hours to an off-campus hotel, where curiosity compelled me to seek out what gluten-free and […]

Allergen Information for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter Diagon Alley's Specialty Beverages

Universal Orlando, in developing the richly layered and immersive Wizarding World of Harry Potter, won worldwide fame as they became the one and only destination (in the muggle world) where anyone and everyone can get butterbeer: the non-alcoholic butterscotch beverage made famous by J.K. Rowling in the Harry Potter book series.  As fans flock to the park in search of this magical drink, they often overlook other offerings found exclusively at Diagon […]
