While visiting my husband’s family in VA, I bought a huge Cheerwine cooler at a fleamarket. It’s a great cooler, and when I finally got a taste of the drink I liked that, too.
Of course we don’t have it in Mississippi. If the end of the world hits, come on down. It will take a year or two to get here!
The hfcs is too sweet when cold. Got to use the glass bottle stuff to make the ice cream. Food Lion markets their sherbert which I agree is too sweet and generaly bad.
I bought a quart of Cheerwine Sherbert shortly after I moved here.
Too sweet for me..
Tasted almost like frozen Dr. Pepper.
But I am sure it is popular, and I remember seeing a cake recipe on their web site that looked good.
But I cant handle the sweetness of it.
The first one I had was at Yum Yum Better Ice Cream in Greensboro, NC.
Since I couldn’t have that amount of sugar everyday, I also enjoyed the diet cheerwine – which I now can get in VA!
Regular Cheerwine is good when made into a toothpick icicle in my freezer.
I discovered that Cheerwine in the glass bottle is made w/ sugar and NOT HFCS. All other bottlings use HFCS. We make bbq sauce and ice cream using Cheerwine and have found the taste is much better using the sugar product.
Don’t know what Cheerwine is? Life can be difficult when one does not reside in piedmont NC.
Cheerwine as an ingredient
