so, after the arrival of two cases of cheerwine on my doorstep (hooray for meredith!), followed soon by a six-pack of it straight from hickory, nc (yay for my sister!), i feel the need to amend my previous statement re. the taste of cheerwine. it's not really cherry-flavored ginger ale. it's actually much more like cherry flavored dr. pepper.
but it's still amazing.
