White House to feature Cheerwine

By  | 

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - In an effort to focus on products made in the U.S.A. the White House will feature the North Carolina soft drink Cheerwine and other businesses on Monday.

Manufacturers from each state, including representatives from the Salisbury-based Cheerwine will join President Trump at the White House Monday, The Associate Press reports.

This is part of the administration's effort to encourage other companies to manufacture their products in the United States.

Cherry-flavored Cheerwine marks its 100th anniversary this year and the company is owned by the founder's great-grandsons.

The soda often is used in southern recipes such as barbecued chicken.
