American Soda is a family run business that specialises in the import of traditional American products to the UK market. Their warehouse is a familiar sight to me, not only because I pass it a lot of days each week but because on Saturdays for quite sometime now, I have dropped of my eldest daughter to work.
Along with a big internet sales department American Soda also has a small shop within its warehouse where Rachel has become know as "Saturday Girl", serving behind the counter. If you have ever been in the shop on a Saturday you will have probably met her.
Last week my son, Jake, started work with Rachel, hopefully he will have been given a more appropriate title than "Saturday Girl 2"
At the end of the day I pick them up and in return for the taxi service Rachel buys me a can of Root Beer.
Inside the shop... you are greeted in the corridor with "Pete's Mural" and the mini bike..
Then once inside, rows of sweets,
soda and American goods that as a Brit look very unfamiliar.
Here we see Rachel and Jacob preparing for opening time.
I'm guessing those of you from the other side of the pond, will spot lots of familiar packaging without even having to read the labels !
So what do my American friends recommend to those of us with a British pallet.
What, if you travelled abroad, could you not live without?
Or if you are an American Soda Customer what do you buy ?
Me I can't even decide from one week to the next if I prefer Mug or A&W Root beer !!! I thing it may be MUG tonight
