I'm now seeing it in fridgepacks in SoCal. Last week I saw it in 2 Liters, so I think it's making its way around.

I'm very excited. I love lemonade (Tropicana or Minitmade). I would really dig a nice carbonated lemonade with cherry. I hope Sunkist has done a good job with this.

After seeing this thread I thought I'd have go out and find some. Heres my qicky review plus some pics if you haven't seen the packaging yet.

Sorry in advance for the crappy picturs this is with my $5 digcam lol.

The Limeade
I personally was hopping for a much stronger lime taste. But instead it just starts with a small sour lime taste and than gets lost into a very strong cherry cream flavor. Not what I was hopping for.

The Cherry
IMO this has one of the worst cherry tastes i've ever had. I was really hopping for a nice easy cherry taste but instead what I got was a really over powerd cherry cough syrup taste. I would have thought that the limeade would have been the main flavor with a nice light suddle cherry flavor. Needless to say this is not the case.

Cream?
This was something I really wasn't expecting. The whole drink has very creamy texture. And than finishes with a light cream taste. Ironically this might be the most well done flavor in the entire drink, However it dosen't really have a place in limeade.

Overall
I can see this probuct doing okay. Fans of big red and maybe redflash will probably like it as it pretty much tastes like big red with alittle bit of lime and a shot of cream.

1 out of 5 stars.

Have you seen Berries and Cream anywhere yet?

Thanks for the info, GR. I found both Dr. Pepper B&C and the Sunkist Cherry Limeade today at a 7-11 in West Valley. I enjoyed the Cherry Limeade, saving the DP for my wife!

It popped up here in OKC as well. I thought it was very artificial tasting. Guess I'll stick with a real cherry limeade if the mood for one hits me.
