I grabbed this last night:
Brand: Excel Black Cherry Soda.
Origin: Breese, IL.
Purchase Place: Frattallone's Ace Hardware, St. Paul, MN.
Sweetener: Pure Cane Sugar.
Review: This didn't stand out from many other black cherry sodas. It was sugary and almost a bit too syrupy, but the flavor was good. There was a bit of a "sharpness" at the end of each sip, but not bad. Overall, a decent, normal soda.
Score: 5 out of 10.
