Obama Loves Honest Tea Forest Berry

So we know this is old news but frankly we were just so busy preparing out soon to be launched Product Review section that we forgot to post this story from the May 28th New York Times. The front page piece detailed the job of Reggie Love, Obama’s assistant, and among other things, what Obama likes to eat while campaigning. 

In addition to burgers and wings, Obamam like likes Met-Rx bars and his favorite drink is nothing other than Honest Tea’s Black Forest Berry which Love notes is sometimes to hard to find.

What wasn’t mentioned in the Times story is that Obama’s favorite ready-to-drink tea is mostly sold in natural foods stores. Given the right s ever increasingly inane argument that Obama is an elitist maybe he should start drinking Snapple.

As we reported in March we love Honest Tea, but frankly wonder if Coca-Cola’s purchase of 40% of the company earlier this year might make future growth a little less than interesting.
