BENTON -- A Benton flower and gift shop want to make the eclipse experience a little sweeter.
The Weeping Willow in Benton is selling a black cherry soda called Darkest Hour. They've had it on their shelves now for a little over a month, but if you want a taste of this soda you'll want to grab it now.
Owners say what's on the shelves is all they have, but hope that it's a nice reminder of an event that will only be around for a few minutes.
"It's something you don't get to see everyday, so they have something to remember it by," owner Terry McGuire said. "We know the kids will be sneaking in and drinking that soda."
The soda costs $3 a bottle. The owners recommend pouring it over ice cream and making a solar eclipse float.
Evangelist Franklin Graham prayed on a sidewalk outside the Pentagon Thursday after his invitation to a prayer service inside was withdrawn because of comments that insulted people of other religions. More>>
