The Anaheim Packing District certainly has a bold reputation as a food hot spot in Orange County to add on to the many other food hot spots, such as Santa Ana’s 4th Street Market, Tustin’s Union Market, and Costa Mesa’s Bristol stretch. Everyday, hoards of people flock to these locations to spend lots of money for something that they can share on Instagram. From the $5 ice cream bar to the $8 cup of coffee (with foam art!) to the $14 Asian burrito, these places have come up with the right recipes to lire people in to drop loads of cash just so the customers can show off their oh-so unique food. Sometimes, it helps to go back to basics and enjoy something familiar that also tastes great, and the Anaheim Packing District has done just that with the introduction of the Doggone Good Soda Company.
The Doggone Good Soda Company has existed for a few years already and have delivered countless amounts of all-natural sodas all over Orange County and beyond. Though lots of companies can claim the use of all-natural ingredients in their beverages, DGSC takes it a step further by allowing customers to order custom labels on the sodas. This ranges from small batches such as for parties to larger needs such as a company picnic, an organization holding a fundraiser, a mom & pop shop that needs to advertise their business, and more. DGSC has had a location in Old Towne Orange where it functions as a production facility and a storefront, but this past Friday, they opened another stand in the Anaheim Packing District. Taking over the former Buy’n Bulk, DGSC now has a satellite location where they can serve up custom sodas and good comfort food. The food mainly consists of hot dogs and various toppings, providing comfort food in an environment filled with other businesses trying to push the limits of creativity. However, I strongly urge visitors to check out DGSC’s beverage selection – I mean, why not taste what they started the company for?
