Ah, Florida. The bendy state at the bottom of the good ole U-S-of-A. The one chock full of coastline and folks who treat every day easy like a Sunday morning. But we in the sunshine state are about more than sandy white beaches, snowbirds and cartoon mice. We're also about quality and innovation. Check out a few top-notch products made in Florida.

My favorite river table epoxy is manufactured in Florida at https://www.wisebond.com it’ s so much better than the cheap Chinese stuff you get on eBay. My buddy just did his entire set of bar tables with WiseBond epoxy after getting a bad batch of some other brand. It must be all the nice weather that makes everyone take pride in what they make.
These seem like all wonderful companies and products from Florida. I do like Tervis drink ware very much.
The lip scrub sounds wonderful. And, I sure could use it in the winter!
I am a proud Floridian, and I love my Tervis. 🙂
Well, of course I’ve tried Tropicana, but some of these I didn’t even know about. The Wish Kingdom looks really interesting.
I totally agree that the Florida Crystals is one of the best. I love organic, and this sugar is amazing.
Don’t forget about BARN LIGHT ELECTRIC (located in Titusville, Florida)!! They’re the only company in Florida to make porcelain lighting! http://www.barnlightelectric.com
We are a chocolatier producing gourmet chocolates here in Florida. Our cocoa comes from Hawaii and Trinidad Tobago as cocoa trees cannot be grown in the sandy FL soil.
Thanks for the list, we loved it!
I make the Sprinkler Buddy here in FL. It's a lawn sprinkler head indicator/guard that custom fits to both sprinkler head rotors and spray heads. Keeps sprinkler heads safe by keeping them visible, so one can avoid running them over with mower tires,etc… It's also made from recycled materials. Check out our independent product review from a well known and respected professional in the irrigation industry,posted on our site. Sprinkler Buddy doesn't break,sink, or float away like other sprinkler donuts found on the market. I'm the lawn care professional that invented the Sprinkler Buddy, this product works!
Thanks for the recognition Jen! We at Maverick Pet Foods really appreciate it!
This is the reason why Florida is considered to be one of the best places in the world, with so many stuffs that they have. Great choices of stuffs.

Florida's Natural is the only orange juice made from only Florida oranges.
Sorry, I didn't see the comment about Tropicana returning to using Florida oranges. I knew they had used others in the past. So Florida's Natural should be added to the list.
Florida's Natural is a good one too Sandy! Thanks for adding it. This list is not an end all/be all to Florida products…just 10 awesome ones. Wouldn't want to make other states jealous with too many great Florida products :).
