Tasting 25 Year Old Vintage Teeccino

 

Teeccino is 25 years old! Seems like ancient times to look back at it now. No cell phones, no internet, no social media, photographs on film that had to be developed and printed. We actually did business by making phone calls, writing and mailing letters!

 

Teeccino was started in my garage like all great entrepreneurial start-ups in America. At the time, I worked for Odwalla Juice Company selling their dried orange peel from their newly built juice plant in Dinuba, CA. We had a big blender and that’s where the very first batches of Teeccino were made in August of 1994.

 

This summer I made a discovery while cleaning my garage. Ok, I have cupboards that are deep and full of herbs and other ingredients I use in my product development. Way back in the recesses of the bottom shelf, I found a box marked Teeccino. Inside were ziplock baggies holding the retained samples from that very first production run. Yes, 25 year old Teeccino!

 

Watch my son, Galen, our VP of Sales who was 6 years old in 1994, join me in tasting vintage Teeccino 25 years later. It was a lot of fun and we lived to tell the story!

 

Happy Holidays to you and your families,
