Crazy D’s Prebiotic Soda Labs

After years of living with mental health issues, Founder Darren Portelli from Toronto recognized sugar as a primary culprit for his illness and began to do research for a healthy result. While trying to get off medications, Darren went through 3 and a half “Crazy D” years in order to develop his organic products with prebiotic root vegetables, which provides many health benefits. “Prebiotics” are food for living micro-organism that feeds the beneficial organisms and promote robust and healthy microbiome. They are not affected by temperature, acidity, or time. Crazy D’s provides three flavours: Rockin’ Rolla’ Cherry Cola, Ginga’ Kick, and Twisted Citrus. All are incredibly refreshing and leaves no nasty aftertaste of sugar.
Pilot Coffee Roasters provides cold brew coffee in convenient cans.

Pilot Coffee Roasters sources its coffee seasonally from across the world, brings them back to Toronto to roast them and cold brew it. Cold brewing is a method which brews coffee in cold water for a more extended period of time. Cold brewing results in sweeter notes in the coffee and prevents the acidic taste we usually taste in our last sip of coffee. Flavours include origin coffee and cold brew latte. The latte can be stored for up to a year without going bad.
