Big Red Cherry Vanilla Float
Soft drink companies heart bandwagons. The latest: cherry vanilla. 1. First came Dr Pep cherry vanilla. 2. Then Coke’s black cherry vanilla coke. 3. Now: Big Red Cherry Vanilla Float, from TX soda maker Big Red, who knows that it takes 3 to make a trend and who maybe has a crush on Dr Pepper, also based in TX. But Big Red does have a cherry vanilla precedent: fans pour regular Big Red (a red soda described as bubble-gummy) over vanilla ice cream to make a Big Red Float. So maybe Big Red isn’t a total copycat. In any case, this-here Big Red Cherry Vanilla Float sure is sweet.
