I opened this adorable 10 oz bottle yesterday afternoon:
Brand: Manhattan Special Black Cherry.
Origin: Brooklyn, NY (not Manhattan, oddly enough).
Purchase Place: Blue Sun Soda, Spring Lake Park, MN.
Sweetener: Cane Sugar.
Review: This had a very "adult" taste. It was not overly sugary or syrupy. It had a deep flavor, and then I noticed that "black cherry concentrate" was the 3rd ingredient (and "grape skin extract" was 4th, which makes this soda sound a little like a serial killer). Overall, it could have used a bit more sweetness. The taste was just a bit harsh. Even though this was a small bottle, I didn't/couldn't finish it all.
Score: 3.5 out of 10.
