Lovely Cherry Soda in the STORE!


I have always been a big fan of cherry soda.  Just simple cherry soda...nothing added to it.
Up until now, it's been a delicacy that I could only buy at certain restaurants.  If I was in an emergency need, I could go to the drive-thru at Bojangles for a fix.  Or, if I wanted to have cherry soda at a sit-down restaurant, I could go to Showmars.

But, I couldn't buy a bottle of cherry soda to keep at home.  It just didn't exist!  I have been looking for cherry soda EVERYWHERE, and could never find it.  It was just so frustrating, especially when I would find  bottles of PINEAPPLE soda, or PEACH soda, or STRAWBERRY soda, but NEVER ANY CHERRY!!! GRRRRR!!!   I was SO ANGRY that it was not available for purchase in any stores.

Once, I even went so far as to look on eBay for a bottle.  But, the only thing I could find was BLACK cherry soda by Jones or Dr Brown's.  So, I did the next best thing....I bought a cherry soda MIX to add to club soda.  It never tasted the way I wanted it to, so I threw it away.  :(

Like I said before, I have been searching for cherry soda in a bottle at the store for YEARS.  Probably about 20 years....I'm not exaggerating.

So, you can imagine my intense joy and satisfaction, when I came across THIS at Walmart the other day!
I thought I was gonna have a HEART ATTACK!  You should have seen me.  My mouth dropped open, and my eyes became as big as saucers, and I said, "OMIGOSH!!!!  CHERRY SODA!!!!"

I'm sure the people around me thought that I was insane, but I didn't care.  I had been waiting TWENTY YEARS for this moment!!

Needless to say, I grabbed a bottle and lovingly carried it home.

Life is just about perfect now.  : )
