A Flathead entrepreneur in his golden years is bringing back a bit of Kalispell nostalgia. Don Andersen is getting ready to start selling Grumpa?s Zombie flavor packets.
The beverage-additive was a hit more than 30 years ago when he owned Grumpa?s Eatin? Barn just off Highway 93. Don says most folks like to add the flavor to sodas, or even ice cream, and a new distribution deal means the flavoring may be hitting store shelves near you.
?They?re delighted that they?re going to get Zombies again after all these years,? said Andersen. ?I myself don?t understand it but if they want it, I?ll supply it.?
Andersen says Glacier Wholesalers has agreed to distribute the flavoring, and it will soon be available throughout the whole country.
