I was in the mood for some Black Cherry last night:
This was my 2nd time trying a Thomas Kemper soda. The first ended really, really poorly - I shared some Thomas Kemper soda with some students of mine, and they sent me some funny (and appropriate) mini-reviews over twitter. Check out that horrible review and their tweets here.
This Black Cherry wasn't fantastic, but it sure ranked better than their first review of mine from 2013.
Brand: Thomas Kemper Black Cherry.
Origin: Portland, OR.
Purchase Place: "Minnesota's Largest Candy Store," Jordan, MN.
Sweetener: Cane Sugar and Honey.
Review: Not bad. Not great, but not bad. I could really taste the honey, which didn't quite fit in a black cherry soda. The black cherry flavor and a boldness and slight sharpness to the end of it, but overall it was relatively smooth. If you're a big honey fan, maybe try this. Otherwise, I think you'll just say "Ehh… unique but just OK."
Score: 6 out of 10.
