Welcome to Sugar High, a series devoted solely to spotlighting the best ways to sate a sweet tooth in St. Louis. We'll sample the best the city has to offer at restaurants, bakeries and holes-in-the-wall, and provide some insight on how these confections are made along the way.
While the mainstay tried-and-true formula still hits the spot every time for St. Louisans, Fitz's fizzy, sweet sodas now come in more colors than a rainbow. Its latest offering, berry pomegranate, debuted earlier this spring.
Described as "a refreshing blend of luscious mixed berries and tangy pomegranate balanced together with the delicate sweetness of pure cane sugar," the bubblegum-pink drink joins Key Lime and Cardinal Cream as the latest additions to Fitz's line of products. A new variety of Fitz's comes out once or twice a year, based on trends and fan suggestions.
Try the beverage in the Delmar restaurant's newest float, the Merry Berry, among more than a dozen other options. The bright, refreshing fruity pop gets topped with generous scoops of vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, berry puree and a crisp vanilla wafer. Whether it's for cooling off, dessert or sharing with a sweetheart, the frosty mug filled with vibrant flavor instantly brightens any day.
