Hi Doug,

It's been years since I had a Cherikee Red soda but I remember it to be very good. The funny thing about Cherry Crush is that while I find it to be a very good drink, I can honestly say if I was taking a blindfolded taste test and didn't know what it was, I don't think cherry flavor would first come to mind. It smells very cherry but other cherry sodas I have had like Jones, Regent and Minute Maid Cherry from the fountain had a very cherry taste. Jones is the most distinct and is my favorite. It's like drinking carbonated maraschino cherry juice. If I remember right, Cherikee Red had a good Cherry flavor. This reminds me, I still need to make my cherry soda discussion post one of these days. My peach soda discussion has gotten great feed back which makes me happy. Hope you find a Cherry Crush to drink soon. :)

Can anyone else help Doug out here? It's been too long since I had Cherikee Red to remember how it compares to Cherry Crush.

I haven't had a Cherikee Red in quite a while myself, but I remember it as a thinner soda, with a cherry bite, while Cherry Crush is a thicker soda, with a smooth cherry taste.

I had a Cherikee Red last night. It was lighter in taste than the Cherry Crush I had last week. That's the best I can offer.

There you go Cherry Crush will have a bigger bang of Cherry Flavor than Cherikee Red.
I hope Cherry Crush comes to Columbus Ohio soon.

I am honestly surprised you don't have it in Columbus already. Pepsi G&J dropped Twister for Crush before PBG and PAS did.

I have a plastic bottle of Cherry Crush and a can of Cherikee Red chilling. I wish the Crush was in can but this is all I have. Report to follow.

I'm no taste expert. Cherikee Red is lighter in color than Cherry Crush and slightly less carbonated and not as heavy a cherry taste as Crush. Both are good drinks and both beat out the crappy, watery Wild Cherry private label soda from Tops I had yesterday.
