Something Natural’s Black Cherry is a sparkling flavored water that is sweetened with stevia and cane sugar. From a flavor perspective, the splash of tart black cherry goes nicely with the crisp base of sparkling water. To that end, the product is very straightforward, with a mellow amount of sweetness to finish things off. The sugar and stevia work pretty well together, making for a good amount of sweetness and only a moderate amount of stevia flavor to the finish. Packaging is this product’s strongest area, with an 11 oz. cobalt blue bottle that is cleanly designed and feels upscale. For us, this feels very much like a female oriented product, but it accomplishes this in a subtle rather than direct way through the design of the bottle and label. That said, we think that this product should do quite well in the space that it occupies -- it’s sophisticated, flavorful, and very nice looking.
