Manhattan Special Vanilla Cream

Where and when: purchased 2/28/09 at Major Market in Escondido, CA
Scent: Sweet, with a strong bitter vanilla tone
Color: pale gold, a lot like ginger ale
Taste: bizarre. Quite sweet, and that bitter scent is still very present, but more so. The bitter is accompanied by a very mild acid, but the bitter is much stronger. It's quite metallic. Iron, or maybe blood, which is really weird in a cream soda. This may be influenced by the fact that I am watching an episode of Buffy while I drink this, but it's strong and not entirely pleasant. The bitter metal hits the roof of your mouth and lingers a bit, while the sweet disappears down the throat. Aftertaste is mostly sweet.

I'm a big fan of cream sodas; they're among my favorites in general. But this one was not pleasant. The iron/metal/blood taste is strong, and really not what I'm looking for in a cream soda. Or any other beverage, for that matter.
