"I ran track at Mississippi State University from 2014 to the spring of 2018. After exhausting my NCAA athletic eligibility, I still wanted to stay active somehow. That summer, I wanted to do something more with my refund check than just spend it on clothes and shoes, so I challenged myself. I've always heard of self-made successful people, and how they started from nothing, so I wanted to see if I could do it myself. I started out by purchasing bottles off of Amazon, lemons from a local grocery store, and I was on my way. Many failed recipes later, here I am!! To this day, I am constantly  branching out, trying  new flavors to provide my customers with an experience like no other. Our current flavors are classic, strawberry, peach, and mango-guava. These are also going to change since I only use fruit that is fresh and in season. #REEDfreshing!!!"
