Sour Cherry Is The New Red Coat...Just Tastier.

Tommy J., AKA, Thomas Jefferson, to those of you who didn't actually know the guy, saw bright, seething red almost every waking moment of his life. When he wasn't drafting the Declaration of Independence, acting as a Founding Father of the United States of America or organizing the Louisana Purchase, he was concentrating on one thing: Sour Cherry & Strawberry pops. Some say it was a pop that Tommy gave to Paul Revere that most aided his famed Midnight Ride, warning early Americans of an immenent British invasion.
The story goes that British Troops uniforms were white, so Paul rode his horse really, really fast past them with an outstretched arm holding a Sour Cherry & Strawberry pop, rubbing it against their coats and giving them a red hue. Apparently, this is why the brightly colored British military eventually became known as the Red Coats.

In any case, we're celebrating Independence Day this weekend with a line-up that could make any Founding Father a baby's daddy. Check us out on Saturday in Battery Park opposite 17 State Street and the Brooklyn Flea in Fort Greene, and on Sunday in DUMBO under the Brooklyn Bridge and at the GreenFlea in Manhattan on 77th and Columbus, our second-ever Manhattan appearance!!
