Ben & Jerry’s Bernie Sanders Ice Cream

Ben & Jerry’s cofounder Ben Cohen made a small batch of ice cream in honor of presidential candidate, Bernie Sanders. Bernie’s Yearning is a mint flavored ice cream with giant chocolate chips somehow is representing the top 1% that has got all the wealth in the last 10 years. The brand is actually Ben’s Best so it will not have the Ben & Jerry’s logo. Ben & Jerry’s Homemade, Inc. has nothing to do with this totally volunteered venture from Ben. Ben & Jerry’s is based in Vermont and in the past has been outspoken yet this is a small but clear way of saying they hope Bernie Sanders a Vermont Senator since 2007 is elected as our next president. If this does not prove it maybe past donations from both Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield to Bernie Sanders campaign, will. Bernie Sanders definitely has the younger voter on it’s side and this is one more way of getting the younger voter interested in Bernie Sanders.

Urbano Cellars 2012 Barbera Award Winning Wine Review

This wine was a bit lighter than the bold blackberry and plumb taste that is evident, it is light on tannins and has a nice acidity very well balanced with a nice long finish, and I highly recommend it for any night of the week.

Facts
Alcohol 14.2%
Brix at harvest 24
PH at harvest 3.65
Harvest date 10/11/12
Bottling 4/3/14Appellation: Clements Hills
Vineyard: Lewis Ranch
Vintage: 2012
Composition: 100% Barbera
Vinification: Grapes were hand sorted, de-stemmed and transferred to 1 ton open bins where it cold-soaked for about 2-3 days before it began primary fermentation with native or naturally occurring yeast from the vineyard. The must was punched down by hand 2-3 times a day. The wine was aged, with minimal racking, in a mixture of mostly neutral French and American oak barrels for about 18 months.
Awards: Gold Medal Winner 2014 Artisan Awards

This wine would go well with rich cheese dishes to a simple pizza or something from the grill, I once again do recommend the 2014 Barbera from Urbano Cellars.

Artisan Awards, Beer, Wine, Spirits, Mixers,

Artisan Awards For Artisan Wines, Beers & Spirits

Artisan Awards : a competition that showcases traditional made products from producers around the world. An annual event that assists suppliers with brand awareness, and helps bring consumer attention to artisan brands. Independently owned distillers, brewers, winemakers… enter their top brands and compete for Gold, Silver and Bronze medals, not every brand is guaranteed to win a medal.
What makes a product qualify as artisan? If you have to ask more than likely it is not artisan. It’s not about the money as artisan brands make more than mass-produced brands. It’s not about the quantities as artisan brands gain popularity/sales each year. Artisan Awards is more about the skill, ingredients and traditional methods that goes into making the product.
Select judges will perform a blind tasting of all products submitted. Annual judging is highly respected as we hand pick the experts in each field according to skill. As the industry continues to grow year after year the artisan brands need to get the well-deserved attention for going the extra mile to insure the best possible product is made. If you want to be a judge please email info@artisanawards.com and let us know what category (i.e. wine, beer, spirits…).
Artisan Awards recognizes products made by people who truly love what they do- craftsmen, creating rare, handmade, organic, single barrel… products that keep consistency year after year trough traditional methods. Artisan Awards attracts consumers as each year the largest growing segment is artisan brands.

4 Ever Tequila Tastings Amazing Tequila Events

If you love tequila, are a tequila aficionado or even just like tequila connect with 4EverTequila on Facebook. They put together incredible tequila tastings with a very unique tequila brands mixed together with authentic Mexican food. I attended the 4EverTequila tasting at West End on 2/20/15 and had an amazing time.

For a set fee of $35 you got to taste silver, reposado, anejo and extra anejo tequilas from tequila brands Arte NOM Seleccion, Sin Rival, Don Nacho, Senda Real, Aguila Real, El Llano, Don Fermin, Cocula, PuraSangre… while you taste these incredible tequila brands the owners, founders and most knowledgeable ambassadors would let you know the story of their brand, what to look for when you taste it and where to go if you would like to purchase a bottle. Some of my favorites of the night were, Forrest with Arte NOM 1414 Seleccion it was a popular one. Rodolfo from Sin Rival was pouring Sin Rival Extra Anejo, Rosario with a Senda Real if you haven’t had it you must try it and Miguel introducing Aguila Real a new tequila from the highlands. If you wanted to take a short break from tequila tasting you could head over to the food and watch them make tortillas by hand and then have your choice of chicken, pork, beef, nopales… unforgettable Mexican rice, beans, quacamole… everything was incredible. I am looking forward to the next tequila event from 4EverTequila make sure you connect with them on Facebook so you don’t miss it, Salud!

PepPod Energy And Nutrition

PepPod It’s Energy And Nutrition Review

PepPod It’s Energy And Nutrition Morning Noon & Night! It is a tablet that you drop into water and drink giving you both energy and nutrition. The pod is small so you can always have one on you morning, noon, or night. The innovation works, I have tried a lot of vitamin c/energy powders that you add to water and nothing works better than PepPod.

The taste is up to you if you don’t like the taste you can add more water, I always do 8 ounces of water. It has a citrus or orange taste, very pleasing anytime of day or night.

Ingredients used in PepPod, 81 mg of caffeine, Vitamin B, C blend, Taurine, Glucuronolactone, Niacine, Guarana, Inositiol, Coenzyme Q10, Ginkgo Biloba & Panax Ginseng. One calorie and one carbohydrate, for anyone on a diet.

You will feel the effects quickly, putting me in a great mood and giving me a burst of energy after just a minute from drinking PedPod. This effect will last at least a few hours, with no crash so somedays I drop one other days I may do more, last Friday I had the longest day and tried on before I went out and had the best night of my life.
