Iowa Girl on the Go meets That Iowa Girl

04-06-16 KI0A7536 copy

I guess great minds do think alike. Back in 2010, the year I launched my Iowa Girl on the Go blog, Colette Johnson was launching a company called That Iowa Girl. Such a coincidence!

I met Colette for the first time this week. That’s her on the left.

Colette lives in Clarion, Iowa. She has a husband, three kids, and two refrigerated trucks, with which she and her staff deliver Iowa-made products all over the state and beyond. That Iowa Girl – the company and the person – does a terrific job of promoting such unique Iowa products as Gino’s dressings and sauces, Madame Mary’s bloody Mary mix, and LaCasa chili con queso.

Her store in Clarion – a former gas station – is stocked with cheese and milk produced on small dairy farms, Do-Biz cookie dough, popcorn, Sterzing’s potato chips, frozen meat, Amish candy, organic granola, Monastery chocolates from Dubuque, Iowa wines and beer, and a whole lot more. It’s a fun shopping destination!

Find That Iowa Girl store on Hwy. 3 in Clarion.
