Not the same as an ice cream soda, cream sodas have a soft rather than astringent fizz to them, and a foamy head that lasts a long time. They come in red, pink, brown, and green colours, as well as clear. Cream soda as we know it in the United States is a light golden brown, sweet, carbonated soft drink flavored with vanilla. Not to be confused with Italian cream sodas that contain cream along with their various flavourings and carbonated water, today's cream soda actually contains no cream at all. This is mixed 1 part to 4 parts water/soda water to get a cream soda drink, very similar to the South African Creme Soda, or is used as a flavoring in their shaved-ice desserts. This syrup is sold worldwide in some Asian food stores.
Theoretically, this cream soda has its own history; there is a long tradition of carbonated beverages with whipped egg whites and various flavorings. It's possible that the cream in the name comes from the cream of tartar, an ingredient that both stabilizes whipped egg whites and prevents syrup from crystallizing.
Cream Soda was originally a carbonated beverage made not from root, as root beer is (sassafras root), but rather from actual dairy products. Early cream soda included water, sugar, egg, and possibly milk and/or vanilla (mixed with sodium bicarbonate to make fizz)
Canadian cream soda is not really vanilla-flavored in the same way that American cream soda is; instead, it's an intensely sweet, almost cotton-candy-type flavour.
Low calorie count, sugar and fat content and few additives makes Tesco Smooth Cream Soda a relatively good choice. However, it is worth noting that the sugar content is substituted with sucralose, a much sweeter version of sugar
Some mistake the flavour for being bubble gum or maybe hints of cinnamon, but Big Red is actually made of citrus oils blended with the vanilla of a traditional cream soda.
Cream soda is made to mimic the creamy flavors of vanilla ice cream. Cream soda comes in two varieties — classic, which is amber-hued, and red cream soda, which is bright red. They taste very similar and are caffeine-free
Crush Cream Soda is generally considered vegan. It contains no dairy, egg, or other animal-derived ingredients. However, it does contain sugar, which may have been filtered with animal bone char.
Though Big Red has classically been marketed as a "red cream soda", its flavor is described as "deliciously different" for a good reason. The unique taste of the soda has been compared to everything from bubblegum to cotton candy. The real flavor is a combination of lemon and orange oil along with vanilla.
