Lent is over, so I hit my non-root beer stash from Ace the other day. I started with this:
Brand: Saranac Black Cherry Creme.
Origin: Utica, NY.
Purchase Place: Frattallone's Ace Hardware, St. Paul, MN.
Sweetener: High Fructose Corn Syrup.
Review: This tasted a little more artificial than I had hoped, and it was a bit sharper than I wanted. It's a "cream" soda, and I want that to be smooth. The black cherry flavor was pretty good, but it just wasn't all put together perfectly. I liked their Shirley Tempe soda better.
Score: 5 out of 10.
