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.

Red is my favorite flavor. Beats the hell out of green for depth of taste.

Not all of us have access to Big Red. We don't all live in the South year-round

How does Big Red copare with Dr Pepper? Since you imply they're in competition with each other. Who wins

I think the implication here was one of sweet, sweet love, not competition. Big Red wants to get all up in the spicy Doctor. Hot, sweaty, sticky good lovin' at 10, 2 and 4.

I have distant memories of Big Red from my boyhood in AR, but I may be wrong. In any case cherry vanilla=good. I keep looking for the non-diet cherry vanilla Dr. Pepper.
