There's a fight for Ski to be Illinois' official state soda

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (KFTK) — With the help of four elementary students and a state rep, Ski soda might just become the official state soda of Illinois.

This week, kids from Germantown Elementary School visited State Rep. Charlie Meier (R-Okawville) and went before the House State Government Administration Committee.

“Ski provides a heavenly citrus flavor that soothes your mouth and taste buds,” Owen Huelsman pled.

Obviously, Excel Bottling Company — the independent bottler based in Breese, Ill. responsible for the cult sensation — is for the idea as well.

They're running a social media campaign "#SkiforIllinois."
