Welcome! I'm a new Pittsburgher and mom who is untrained in both life and cooking, but that just makes them both more exciting!

Giveaway: Cascal Fermented Soda

Trust me, you want to try this stuff. Jake and I methodically went through each of the flavors recently as though we were professional taste testers and want you to be able to do the same! None of them taste like anything else that I have had before, and the combinations of flavors give a refreshing start to the summer. My favorite was Crisp White, but Jake liked Fresh Tropical.  I guess opposites do attract.  I really like Cascal because it has no sugars other than those from fruit juice, it’s gluten- and caffeine-free, and has only 60-80 calories per can. If you win, you will get a sample pack sent to your home and I fully expect an update about your flavor evaluation!

Here's some more information about the flavors (Michelle, the community manager for Cascal, wrote this - I can't take credit!):

Crisp White - With notes of pear, apricot and magnolia, Crisp White pairs especially well strawberry ice cream, fresh salads, a mild Brie cheese or any number of the more robust cheeses.

Ripe Rouge - With notes of cherry, rose and chocolate, Ripe Rouge pairs especially well with Marcona almonds, marinated olives, Asiago cheese, grilled beef or chocolate cake.

Fresh Tropical - With notes of mango, jasmine and kaffir lime, Fresh Tropical pairs especially well with Pad Thai, barbecue sandwiches or sweet mango salsa and crisp tortilla chips.

Bright Citrus - With notes of lemongrass, tangerine and pineapple, Bright Citrus pairs especially well with tangy teriyaki chicken, a gourmet chicken sandwich or fresh guacamole and chips.

Berry Cassis - With notes of black currant, tangerine and lemon, Berry Cassis pairs especially well with creamy hummus and crisp pita chips or spicy tandoori chicken.
