Candyman Goes Carbonated – Midnight Menu +1 – It’s New Orleans
Roy Nelson was the Willy Wonka of New Orleans, growing up in a chocolate factory. His family owns Elmer’s, the country’s last remaining family-owned and operated chocolate factory.
What do you after chocolate when you want to go out on your own and start up your own business? In Roy’s case he went straight for the cane sugar. And the pecans. And the Satusmas. And the Bourbon vanilla. And with his wife dreamed up Fest Cola. Honestly, if this isn’t the best tasting cold drink you’ve ever had we’ll refund your entire podcast subscription fee for a decade.
Roy brings along his buddy Chris Schlumbrecht to this show as his plus one because, let’s face it, after working 23 days straight in his catering company, CS Events of New Orleans, Chris deserves a few free beers. Chris used to work in catering at the Superdome, has worked for NFL franchises, and tried other ventures around the nation before moving back home a year ago and inventing Bourbon Cream Soda Chicken Teriyaki.
