Louisville Slugger

The legend started in 1884 when Pete Browning of the Louisville Eclipse broke his back. He was invited to the woodworking shop of J.F. Hillerich by his son "Bud". Some 120 years have passed since Bud Hillerich crafted that very first bat for Pete Browning. During that time, Louisville Slugger has sold more than 100,000,000 bats, making it without question the most popular bat brand in baseball history. Louisville Slugger continues to dominate the game in both wood and aluminum bat categories. 60% of all Major League players currently use Louisville Slugger. And in the past decade, seven national college baseball champions hammered their way to the top with Louisville Slugger TPX bats.

In recent years, Louisville Slugger has gone far beyond bats, providing performance technology in the form of fielding and batting gloves, helmets, catchers' gear, equipment bags, training aids and accessories. In addition to its on-field performance products, Louisville Slugger offers personalized, miniature, commemorative and collectible bats.

Jim Beam~A Legend for 213 years

When Jacob Beam cooked up his first batch of bourbon back in 1795, debts were settled with duels. The American Dream was still taking shape. And you added more horsepower by, well, adding another horse.

A lot has changed over the past 213 years. But at Jim Beam, things have remained more or less the same. All that time has been spent painstakingly and passionately perfecting Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. Proudly the world’s finest bourbon and still made by the same family, pretty much the same way. There is now a whole family of bourbons. Some are aged longer to add a little more character and complexity. One of the bourbons is filtered through charcoal for a more rounded and mature taste. Another offers a spicy rye flavor. And a few are made in small batches, the way bourbon used to be made. They can be light and delicate. Creamy and elegant. Smooth. Balanced. Chewy. Crisp.

Candy made in my hometown of Madison, Indiana

In 1893 Walter C. Mundt moved his young family to Madison, opening his first candy manufacturing and retail store that year. Ten years later he organized the Mundt-Hidden Candy Company and in 1917 he founded Mundt’s Candies in the existing building at 207 West Main.

The Mundt name has appeared on the building’s storefront nearly 89 years: Mundt’s Candies, 1917; W. Mundt & Sons, Manufacturing Confectioners, circa 1922; and Betty Mundt’s Candies, 1933. A 1918 photograph of the storefront shows it virtually unchanged.

Mention Mundt’s and Madison fondly remembers fish candy, chocolates, Betty’s and Richard’s soda fountain creations, dark wood booths and pictures of school children covering the wall… Just as though it were yesterday.

Mundt’s closed May 1966. Mundt’s re-opened June 1998.

Famous for their Fish Candy, this is definitely something you won't want to miss. MUNDT'S CANDIES is featured on page 509 in the New York Times Best Seller, 1,000 Places To See Before You Die.

MUNDT'S Recommended by NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC "fun confectionery and soda spot since 1917."

Recorded in the Historic American Buildings Survey, Library of Congress.

Softdrinks from Sav A Lot

One of the things that I have found recently that is Made In America is Tubz Diet Root Beer from Sav A Lot. This stuff is awesome!!! It has zero calories, zero carbs and is made with Splenda. Be sure to stop by your nearest Sav A Lot to pick some up.

This is one of the staples of my Low Carb Diet and I don't think I would be able to make it through without it.
