Excel Bottling launched two dessert-flavored craft soda flavors: Gooey Butter Cake and Apple Pie. Excel’s Gooey Butter Cake Soda tastes like the mid-Western classic dessert with notes of vanilla cake, cream cheese, powdered sugar and a buttery aftertaste, the company says. The Apple Pie flavor has notes of cinnamon and apples with a buttery caramel aftertaste, it adds. The craft sodas are sweetened with pure cane sugar and available in select markets packaged in 24-packs of 12-ounce glass bottles.
