No joke: Ale-8 Orange Cream soda is a thing

Now this is an April Fools Day marketing campaign we can get behind…

Kentucky soda company Ale-8-One tweeted a picture of a new flavor on Monday with the hashtag #AprilFoolsOrNot.

It’s our pleasure to share the news that the Orange Cream soda is real!

The new flavor will hit shelves in May, but the company promises fountain pop-ups before the bottles are available.

This is only the second new flavor in the company’s 93 year history. Cherry Ale-8 hit stores last April and remains a major hit with consumers.

For those who don’t know, Ale-8-One is as Kentucky as bourbon, basketball and horse racing. The ginger, citrus beverage is unique and only available in the Bluegrass State.
