Vernors To Release First New Flavor In 50 Years
Vernors is a pure Michigan staple and for the first time in more than 50 years, the brand will be releasing a new flavor this summer.
Can I get a drumroll, please? Without further ado, the new flavor is Vernors Black Cherry Ginger Soda. According to the Metro Times, the new flavor will arrive this summer, but only for a limited time.
The new beverage will be available in stores in Michigan and Toledo, Ohio this August. That's right - not nationwide. If you have family out of state, you may need to ship them a six-pack (with a pack or two of Koegel's of course).
Michiganders use Vernors for ice cream floats, as a cocktail mixer, and in my case, for hangover relief. All kidding aside, Vernors really is the bomb. So how do you think the new flavor will stack up? I am thinking Vernors Black Cherry Ginger Soda margaritas sound pretty good.
Pairing it with a Koegel hot dog (as mentioned above) and a bag of Better Made potato chips sounds like the perfect picnic lunch too. Or how about with some Mackinac Island Fudge? This is a pure Michigan mouth party waiting to happen.
Maybe the company will hire a Michigan celebrity to promote the new brand? Bob Seger would be a great choice. Do you remember when Ted Nugent starred in a Vernors commercial? You can check it out below, along with another classic Vernors commercial.
Let's all meet back here in August to share our thoughts on Vernors Black Cherry Ginger Soda. I have a feeling I am really going to like it.
