    Review: 7-Select Premium by Jones – Bluesberry Smash

    Try it only if you like knockoff cherry, strawberry, and raspberry flavor. Way too sweet and fake tasting. Like a bad Fanta on steroids.

              Review: Mtn Dew Black Label

              Despite the use of sugar, has a pretty subdued cherry taste. Nothing quite unique about it, other than the awesome can design. Meh.

                    Review: Pepsi Max Cherry Blast 16 oz. Can

                    A standard cherry flavor extension for Pepsi Max, but unlike the flagship, this iteration is lacking the inclusion of ginseng. Worth a try.

                            Review: Blk Water

                            It's bottled water, but it's black. Why? Because people are dumb.
