Fresca Black Cherry Citrus

Fresca Black Cherry Citrus

Ok, perhaps I should go into a bit more detail.  For those unaware, Fresca is made by Coca-Cola and is a citrus flavored beverage that favors grapefruit.  I like Fresca, not as an all-the-time drink but every now and again I enjoy it. My enjoyment of Fresca directly correlates to how old I feel.  “Wow, this is a refreshing, unique beverage…. Good God I feel like I’m 107”. I’m not sure why this occurs, but I associate the beverage with older people.  A citizen of the Carbo-Nation handed me a Fresca I’d never seen before, Fresca Black Cherry Citrus, and I knew I had to try it

Hollywood Original Shirley Temple Soda Pop

Hollywood Original Shirley Temple Soda Pop

Sprecher Cherry-Cran

Sprecher Cherry-Cran

I thought I’d tried every Sprecher soda out there, but thankfully I haven’t.  Sprecher makes some of the most consistently great soda out there and has wonderful label art to boot.  Today’s flavor offering is Cherry-Cran (sweetened with a combination of glucose syrup and honey), which is sounds a bit odd if you ask me.  Normally when “Cran” is involved it gets first billing, like Cran-Apple or Cran-Grape.  Perhaps Ocean Spray has just made my brain accept that this is the normal order of things.  Well here comes Sprecher to throw chaos into the mix with their Cherry-Cran taste, and I’m quite pleased to try it.
