I saw these when I went to Target to pick up the DVD today.
Jones is a regular staple around here (they test market all sorts of weird flavors all over the place) but this box set wasn't appealing to me.

Pumpkin, yeah.
Cranberry...possibly.

But the rest?  Nah.

There won't be any Turkey & Gravy soda pop this Thanksgiving, I'm afraid, but fear not:  Jew or Gentile, you'll still be able to guzzle down another important holiday dinner this year.

Jones Soda promises ham, tree, doughnut flavored beverages

Quote
SEATTLE (AP) — Jones Soda Co., a Seattle-based purveyor of offbeat fizzy water is selling holiday-themed limited-edition packs of sodas that include flavors such as ham and latkes.

The Christmas pack will feature such flavors as Sugar Plum, Christmas Tree, Egg Nog and Christmas Ham. The Hanukkah pack will have Jelly Doughnut, Apple Sauce, Chocolate Coins and Latkes sodas, the company said in a statement Friday.

It even will be kosher, the company says — including the ham.

The packs will go on sale Sunday, with a portion of the proceeds to be given to charity, the company said.

Jones' products feature original label art and frequently odd flavors. Last year's seasonal pack was Thanksgiving-themed, with Green Pea, Sweet Potato, Dinner Roll, Turkey and Gravy, and Antacid sodas.

For its contract to supply soda to Qwest Field, home of the Seattle Seahawks NFL football team, Jones came up with Perspiration, Dirt, Sports Cream and Natural Field Turf. The company — fortunately or unfortunately — prides itself on the accuracy of the taste.

Jones also makes more traditional flavors, including root beer, cherry and strawberry sodas.



This is gonna save me so much time in the kitchen this Christmas.

looks like the Jewish pack has the potential to be a bit tastier than their usual fare. "Christmas Tree" flavor? sounds great...

the thought of these things is always much better than the reality. whatever they use to make these things has a serious chemical aftertaste, no matter what the flavor is.

That pack does look pretty good, but do you know what would be even better, for our Jewish friends?  A Jones Soda Limited Edition Nine-Pack Gift Set, in the shape of a Hanukkah menorah.  If there's a better way to celebrate the rededication of the Temple after the successful Jewish revolt against the Seleucid monarchy, than by drinking a different unusually-flavored carbonated beverage, every night, for eight straight nights in December, I don't know what it is.

and the ham-flavored soda. . .

Look at me, indeed.  Surely this means that the fish taco-flavored soda must be on the way?

Last Thanksgiving we tried the 5 pack...I seriously puked a little each and every time I took one of the non fruit flavors...they were the worst thing I've ever had in my life.

What you didn't like the Brussel Sprout Soda? ... *shudder* There was some dry heaving going on at my house when we tried that one. Easily one of the worst things I've ever had the displeasure of tasting. I'm somewhat excited for the new Christmas and Hanukkah flavors this year. I love me some Egg Nog, I wonder if I will feel the same about the soda though?

I see these in the store every year but have never actually pulled the trigger. This year would be as good a time as any to start.

I'm also curious what kind of mixed drinks you could get from these. Jelly doughnut and Kahlua? Ham and Southern Comfort? Christmas tree and vodka? They probably all fall under "good in theory and deadly in practice," but you never know.

i know that their "Monster Mojito" flavor they make at Halloween is good as a mixer. i won't say for what kind of drink, though.
