I have no idea what made me think of this the other day -- do you remember Frank’s Black Cherry Wishniak soda?

If you were born and/or raised in and around Philadelphia, you may remember Frank's sodas from back in the day. And if you don't remember the soda, you probably at least remember their slogan, "Is it Frank's? Thanks."  Frank's made a bunch of different sodas from a factory in Philadelphia -- grape, vanilla creme, ginger ale, and others -- but it was their black cherry wishniak that made them a local legend.

The bad news is you haven't been able to walk into a store and buy Frank's sodas in a couple decades, but the good news is they still make Frank’s Black Cherry Wishniak -- but I doubt you'll want to buy it because of the price.

Frank's was sold way back in 1990 and the brand pretty much disappeared from the mainstream after that. However, a soda bottling company in Baltimore apparently makes it, but a case of it will cost you, in some cases, almost $80 now!
