And artificial cherry flavor does not, indeed, have anything to do with cherries. IIRC, what most people consider to be a "cherry" flavor is actually derived from pomegranets.

But while we're on the subject, what's the general term for a Dr Pepper-type soft drink? Coke, Pepsi, and RC are colas. Sprite and 7up are lemon-lime drinks. A&W and Barq's are root beers. But what are Dr Pepper, Mr Pibb, and the various generic imitations?
