Diet Big Red Soda [OUR LOOK]

If you didn’t grow up in Texas or live there now chances are you’ve never sipped on some Big Red Soda, the “original red cream soda.” Living in California, I’ve never heard of it until now, but apparently Big Red was once the sixth highest selling soft drink company in the United States only a few years back.

I’m not sure what the original Big Red Soda tastes like, but the new diet version they sent us is almost undrinkable. It tastes like bubblegum toothpaste with a whole lot of sweet and low. I am a fan of diet drinks, but this is one beverage that you won’t be seeing in my refrigerator.

If you’ve tried this drink, feel free to chime in with your thoughts…I’d love to hear some alternate, or similar, viewpoints.

I’m a Texas kid and original Big Red can’t be beat. Red Flash & all other red sodas pale in comparison. I strongly recommend getting your hands on the real stuff!
