Atlanta: Fresh Market Helps Launch New Coca Cola Life Soda

Published

on

The Fresh Market is proud to have been selected by Coca-Cola as the exclusive retail partner for the U.S. launch of Coca-Cola Life, a lower-calorie cola sweetened with a blend of sugar and naturally sourced stevia leaf extract. First introduced in 2013 in Argentina and Chile, Coca-Cola Life will reach The Fresh Market stores on Monday, August 25. Now through mid October, this delicious, new low-calorie option will be available exclusively at The Fresh Market in 65 select stores across the Southeast in Georgia, Florida, North Carolina and South Carolina.

Coca-Cola Life

With a third less sugar and a third fewer calories than leading colas, Coca-Cola Life’s sweetness comes from a blend of sugar and stevia leaf extract.  Stevia leaf extract is naturally sourced from the stevia plant, which is native to Paraguay. Sweeteners made from stevia are calorie-free and up to 200 times sweeter than table sugar.  A 330-ml can of Coca-Cola Life contains 89 calories.

“We’re excited to partner with Coca-Cola for its U.S. debut of Coca-Cola Life,” said Karen Stout, vice president of non perishables and private label at The Fresh Market. “As a specialty grocer with a focus on providing fresh, high-quality products, we believe our shoppers will enjoy this great-tasting, lower-calorie cola sweetened from natural origins.”

During the weekend of Saturday, September 27 and Sunday, September 28, shoppers will have the chance to sample Coca-Cola Life at the select 65 stores where the cola is sold. Guests will receive a coupon for $1 off any eight ounce six-pack of Coca-Cola glass bottle products.

521 Kitchen and Que = Our Pick for Holiday Meat!

Published

on

521 Kitchen and Que is located in Atlanta off Roswell Road and is our pick for ordering your Holiday Meal this year, and dinner tonight!

Owned by local Atlanta couple, Drew and Roma Kirkland, this is by far one of the best BBQ’s we have been to.  One thing that strikes us in particular about this restaurant is their commitment to locally sourced and fresh food. Also, they are vegetarian and gluten free friendly. Vegetarian? A BBQ restaurant is vegetarian friendly? Yes, believe it or not, as Roma told us, there are quite a lot of  vegetarians that love to grab a bite at 521 Kitchen and Que.

As someone that works with my significant other, I loved the fact that the “521” in 521 Kitchen and Que is their anniversary date. Awe… Heart melts.

So, long story short; We sampled all the yummy goodies they have and for your holiday meals, do yourself a favor and let them cook it.

 

Must have picks:

Turkey – Moist and Delicious. All your guests will be impressed.

Kale Slaw – So delightful! It doesn’t have the bitterness you might expect from Kale. It is definitely worth getting

Baked Sweet Potato – Cooked perfectly, season with salt and pepper

Brisket – Melt in your mouth delicious!

Let’s just say that we loved everything we tried and we are certain you will too.

Go ahead and try them for lunch or dinner! While you are there,  place your holiday order! Do it quickly!

ATLANTA – Any frequenter of Murphy’s knows that each plate is made up of delicious ingredients, locally grown and thoughtfully prepared. To honor the sources of these ingredients, Murphy’s is excited to continue their Farmer’s Table Dinner Series. Already proven to be a fan favorite after a sold out dinner in June, the series will take place the last Wednesday of each month. Guests are invited to enjoy a multi-course meal highlighting local farmers and their contributions to Murphy’s menu.

The first dinner of the series, a successful “trial run”, took place Wednesday, June 24, 2015 and featured farmer Richard Kessler (“RJ”) from Planted Rock Farms. The 4-course dinner included wine pairings and a variety of summer-inspired dishes, thoughtfully prepared by Chef de Cuisine Ricky Navas. Guests also had the opportunity to meet and mingle with RJ and Chef Ricky.

The next dinner will take place Wednesday, July 29 and will be hosted by Geezer’s Farm out of Gurley, Alabama, where Farmer David Sisk will travel to Atlanta to join the feast.

Midtown-Atlanta’s scrumptious Melting Pot will have a delicious 4th of July menu available–and it’s 1/4 off! Skip the grill on your holiday, because there will be a meal for everyone to enjoy aside from burgers and hot dogs. Personally, I’d get all over that watermelon and feta salad. And the Buffalo chicken.
