Brand: Indian Wells Black Cherry Soda.
Origin: Inyokern, California.
Purchase Place: "Minnesota's Largest Candy Store," Jordan, MN.
Sweetener: Cane Sugar.
Review: This was pretty fancy, so I was ready to not like it. First of all, I think it was about $6 for a 22 oz bottle of soda. Second, the wax seal. Third, it was made with "artisan spring water." And fourth, it was carbonated "in a special process using recovered naturally created CO2" which is about the biggest line of hippy bull-honkey I've ever read on a bottle of flavored sugar water.
But this ended up being good. Damn good. The black cherry flavor was both deep and crisp. It was really a "full bodied" soda, which is something I don't know I've ever said before. My boys loved it, but they love it any time they get a sip of my soda. This was a good final soda for 2017. Happy New Year!
Score: 9 out of 10.
