I love Cream soda. I’d rather drink this than Coke or Pepsi. Don’t ask me why, I’ve no idea. It’s probably the taste. I like the taste.
Finding good Cream soda in North Carolina is damned difficult. Most grocery stores don’t stock it. Can’t find the generic stuff at Wal-Mart like I could in Pennsylvania. Sure, there’s a few grocery stores that have A&W Cream Soda, but a 20 oz. bottle? Nope, not finding that.
Today at Kroger, while buying Rice Krispies, I took a walk down the soda aisle and looked at the Big K generic sodas. There it was, a bottle of Big K Cream Soda. And it was bright red.
No, that’s not right! Cream soda should have a yellow-ish cast to it.
Maybe it was just red coloring, thought I to myself. So, I bought the bottle.
Oh! It’s terrible!
It tastes nothing like Cream soda. It tastes like bubblegum. Bubblegum!
Oh, the indignity of it all!
