Today I am so excited to be on Talk of the Town Newschannel 5 in Nashville making this amazing recipe for Lemonade Poppyseed Cake perfect for this time of year. It is fabulous for breakfast, a snack and for dessert. It’s made with Milo’s new Lemonade that is all-natural with no preservatives. Milo’s Lemonade is a blend of fresh lemon juice, filtered water and is sweetened with pure cane sugar. Milo’s Lemonade was preferred in blind taste tests over leading national lemonade brands.
Milo’s Tea Company is a family owned, certified, woman-owned business located in Bessemer, AL. Milo’s was founded as a restaurant in 1946 by Milo and Bea Carlton after Milo returned from serving our country in World War II. Milo’s philosophy was simple – use high quality, fresh, natural ingredients, listen to your customers and never sacrifice taste. Milo and Bea’s vision still guides the company today as Milo’s continues to source only natural ingredients. Drink Milo’s and Taste the Difference.
In 1989, Milo’s began selling their fresh brewed Famous Sweet Tea to local Birmingham grocery stores, and now it can be found in thousands of retailers across the United States. Milo’s original products include Milo’s Famous Sweet Tea, Unsweet Tea and No Calorie Tea. These products can be purchased in stores across the country. These beverages meet the growing demand for all-natural products that are free from added preservatives. Most ready-to-drink teas are processed from instant or concentrate tea; however, Milo’s Tea is brewed fresh from high quality custom blended tea leaves.
Milo’s Tea Company has now introduced three new products to meet the growing demand of consumers for more Milo’s beverages just in time for summer and the 4th of July Holiday: Milo’s Decaf Sweet Tea, Milo’s Lemonade, and Milo’s Famous Sweet Tea and Lemonade. These are now available in multiple retail outlets.
