View Full Version : What do you think of Big Red?...

I noticed that it got a lukewarm review in the reviews section of this site, but its always been one of my favorites. I love the stuff!

And unlike the review, I never thought it tasted like "bubblegum" at all.

I think its one of the best out there. Very refreshing

I tried to like it, but failed. The flavor was too sickeningly artificial. I probably would've liked it as a kid, but as an adult it doesn't appeal to me.

It's pretty decent.

I love it out of the glass bottle w/ real sugar. The HFCS version is alot worse, but still decent. I usually only drink it with BBQ, it goes perfectly with it.

I bought a 6 pack of 8oz cans on my last roadtrip... 8oz is enough before you get overwhelmed with the sweetness of the soda.

"The flavor was too sickeningly artificial."Boy, it sure doesnt taste that way to me. It says on the ingredients info on the can "natural and artificial flavors" which is exactly like hundreds of other drinks.

To me it tastes like its primarily strawberry or maybe rasberry, with the proverbial "other flavors" mixed with it in the formula.

My other favorites right now are Fresca, Cheerwine, Shweppes and Canada Dry ginger ale.

Big Red fits right in with those to me.
