Bud Light Seltzer Cherry Cola Hard Soda Sings a Fun, Flavor-Filled Refrain

Bud Light Seltzer Cherry Cola Hard Soda— Cherry cola is a popular beverage that is made by mixing cola and cherry syrup. After decades of being a staple of old-fashioned soda fountains, soft drink giant Coca-Cola started making a canned version of the drink in 1982. Coke introduced the new flavor at the World’s Fair that year in Knoxville, Tennessee. Three years later, Cherry Coke went into mainstream production. On Coke’s heels, Royal Crown Cola started marketing Cherry RC in 1985. Pepsi, Coca-Cola’s chief rival brand, introduced Cherry Cola Slice in 1986, but replaced it with Pepsi Wild Cherry in 1988. Now all three soda giants also offer diet or zero sugar versions of their cherry cola. And now you can enjoy the classic old-time soda flavor with a kick with Bud Light Seltzer Cherry Cola Hard Soda.

Authentic Aroma

Trying a new hard seltzer flavor is a fun experience. Will the scent match the picture on the can? Will the fragrance make your mouth water? That’s the hope. In the case of Bud Light Seltzer Cherry Cola Hard Soda, the beverage is infused with a very authentic fragrance. You can smell the sweetness of cherry in the air.

Not only does this Bud Light Seltzer Hard Soda smell like a classic soft drink version of the flavor, but it is also blessed with the authentic taste as well. And this is a hard seltzer that goes down easy with no boozy aftertaste. You will hardly taste the alcohol at all. This drink is made with water, cold-fermented cane sugar, and natural flavors (in addition to caramel color, phosphoric acid, sodium citrate, sucralose, tartaric acid, acesulfame K, and malted rice). If you don’t like a long list of ingredients in your seltzers this lineup may not be for you. But if you like sweet seltzers, this one is pleasantly sweet like the soft drink, thanks to the sucralose. Despite the sweet taste, it only has 100 calories.
