2. PampleTwo with Cooper Shaw

Here, in the second half of the Grapefruits, we review La Croix, Bubly and Waterloo.

We also introduce a new segment (Sparkling Water Myths) and then talk Carbonara recipes, early childhood memories, physical fights, and the Madison Diner on Bainbridge Island (Family-owned? Family-owned!).

We wrap up the episode in agreement: We both love working for Eric Bahn and Ba Bar.

1. PampleOne with Cooper Shaw

In our first session with Coop, we review six brands of grapefruit-flavored sparkling water and talk about Ramlösa and how sparkling water is perceived in Joakim’s native Sweden.

We also touch upon Coop’s upbringing in Los Angeles which obviously leads to a conversation about God and restaurants in Seattle. Part one is a review of the Grapefruits by Signature Select (Safeway), Talking Rain and Cascade Ice. Part two will feature La Croix, Bubly and Waterloo.
