Arizona Iced Tea is holding a nationwide taste contest in search of a new flavor to put out in honor of itâ€™s 20th anniversary. There are 3 new flavors in which to choose from, based off of classic American desserts: Cherry Lime Rickey, Chocolate Fudge Float, and Orange Cream.
The one that intrigued me most was the Chocolate Fudge Float. I had never heard of a carbonated chocolate drink before and curiosity drove me to try this one fist. The drink was sweet and lightly carbonated and although this flavor piqued my interest initially, I was left unconvinced.
Next I tried the Orange Cream; I thought it would be a smooth transition from the Chocolate Fudge. The taste was light and creamy, which was surprising for a tea. It instantly reminded me of summer – eating orange creamsicles. A bit too sweet for everyday.
Last I tried the Cherry Lime Rickey. The flavor was a perfect blend of sweet and sour and the slight carbonation was really refreshing. Cherry Lime Rickey was easily my favorite.
My friend Kidada Jones designed this “Never Grow Up” doll for Disney! It’s a Vinylmation treatâ€”a limited edition set Kidada designed featuring a 9” figure of Peter Pan (underneath a sundae) and a 3” figure of Tinker Bell stuck in a chocolate bar!

“I love holiday decor that is as meaningful as it is festive. My family and I celebrate Hanukkah and Christmas â€” always making tradition a focal point for both. We tend to celebrate with a lot of the English things we loved growing up. We have a tree and we pick up our favorite Christmas stockings from Tea & Sympathy in the West Village. They’re filled with the best Cadbury chocolates. We also getÂ Christmas Crackers every year to decorate the table â€” they are crackers wrapped in a twist of bright paper and hold little toys or paper crowns inside. I also try to be thoughtful in every gift I give, down to its wrapping. I always prefer visiting fabric trim shops, such as M&J Trims, over buying wrapping paper and ribbon in bulk. I like using beautiful lace, velvet and printed florals, plaids or embroidered ribbon to give each gift a special finishing touch.”
