As Southern Illinois prepares for next month's box seat view of the total solar eclipse, a Breese based bottling company known for the popular Citrus drink Ski is adding some flavor. Carla Baublitz with Excel says they have launched a short term soda flavor in preparation for the August 21st cosmic event.
Baublitz says it won't take ice cubes for the soda to be truly chilling.
Excel is preparing to produce more Darkest Hour soda on Tuesday. The company has already received bulk orders from a summer camp and several schools planning eclipse parties.
