WooCommerce Custom Product Tabs

This is a follow up post from my original post on how to add Multiple Custom Product Tabs to Wordpress. I received a lot of questions on how to create/code the second tab and call both into the backend. I’ll reiterate that all of this code may not be the most elegant solution.
