If you’ve been following along on our Instagram page, then you’ve seen that we have teamed up with Boyd Harrington to create a unique concept of working behind the scenes in local shops. Our goal for the Guest Chef series is to connect better with the companies we love to support and get a feel for what they do for all of us consumers. We had a ton of fun at SodaRush learning how to make different drinks, fresh lemonade and interacting with the customers. Keep an eye out for more to come. 🙂
SodaRush is a family owned and operated Soda Shop. Originally from Kansas, Jim and Amber moved to the valley of the sun with their 4 children to open their own soda and cookie shop. They now have two locations in Mesa, and in Gilbert. SodaRush not only only serves their Signature Sips and Gourmet Cookies, they also serve Ice Cream Cones, Fresh Squeezed Lemonade and Coconut Limeade, and also Cotton Candy, Giant Soft Pretzels, and Fruit Puree Parfaits.
💎 Growing up in Arizona, popsicles were their own food group! Now that we are grown up, we were more than ecstatic when we heard of Pop ‘N Tea Bar in Phoenix.
Their adult version of the popsicle involves gelato frozen into diamond shaped popsicle bars, then dipped into chocolate and choice of toppings.
On February 20th, 2018 we attended another amazing She Forks Phoenix event, Food As Art, at the Pop ‘N Tea located in Phoenix. We were graced with the company of other great bloggers and influencers.
Matt, Benson and Eric, the owners of Pop ‘N Tea, treated us with amazing boba drink samples, and the ever so glorious, gelato diamond gelato bar. These three friends are passionate about only serving up quality products from quality ingredients.
A couple fun facts about Pop ‘N Tea Bar: The building they are in used to be a flower shop. As a tribute to the history of that building they designed their logo to look like a flower bouquet. Pretty cool, huh!
