What’s Your Favorite SANPELLEGRINO Flavor?



Our family has been drinking SANPELLEGRINO sparkling fruit beverages for years.  SANPELLEGRINO was one of the many imported Italian specialty products sold at my grandfather’s Italian verity store “Pat’s Center Grocery” on Washington Street here in Gloucester Ma., when I was a child. Growing up, everyone in the family was spoiled with the endless supply of Sicilian imported carbonated lemon and orange sparkling fruit waters, sold at ” Pat’s Center Grocery.”  I think our families younger generation shares this same passionate likeness to our family favorite beverage SANPELLEGRINO, because it literally now runs in our blood after the amounts we consumed over the years in my grandfathers’ store. 


SANPELLEGRINO has expanded their flavors’ to six including the original Lemon and Orange.   Today Lemon, Orange, Grapefruit, Clementine, Pomegranate & Orange, and Blood Orange verities, are manufactured in the United States, and sold in almost all major grocery and retail stores. 

Look what’s on sale this week at Stop & Shop!


Yesterday while shopping at Stop & Shop, I noticed a display advertising a 10/$10 sale on SANPELLEGRINO, and decided to surprise my kids with their favorite “Orange” along with a few other flavors including Pomegranate & Orange, a flavor I had never tasted until yesterday…OMG  it was delicious!


 Pomegranate & Orange is definitely my new favorite SANPELLEGRINO flavor!

 The white snow blanketing our surroundings this winter for me, was pretty up until snow storm #5.  Yesterday for a split second while shopping in the produce section at the market,  I caught myself daydreaming as if I were on a tropical island surrounded by  lush greenery, vibrant colored flowers and aromatic fruit trees.  A split second  latter I disappointedly returned back to winter’s reality pushing my cart wearing my new wrist warmers and wool hat.  After enjoying that daydream, I decided to shopping a little slower taking a few extra moments to soak in the beautiful colors lining the aisle surrounding me. The colorful fruits and vegetables appeared to be extra pretty yesterday.  They brighten my day and inspired me to create a few recipes last night using Blood Oranges. I greeted my husband  at the door last night with this “Stay-cation” Blood Orange Cocktail, click see more for three new recipes inspired  by yesterdays shopping experience.
