Turkey & Gravy soda on the table for Thanksgiving

11/24/2003

SEATTLE (Reuters) - Thanksgiving dinner with all the fixings: cranberry sauce, stuffing and turkey gravy-flavored soda. Yummy?
 
In the latest food fad to emerge in the United States, Seattle specialty soda maker Jones Soda Co. scored a hit this week with the introduction of a limited batch of Turkey & Gravy-flavored soda.

The tan-colored soda sold out in just three hours after an initial batch was put up for sale on the company's Web site Friday, a spokeswoman for the company said.

Proceeds from the online sale, where two bottles of Turkey & Gravy soda sold for about $11, were donated to Toys for Tots, a children's charity. Local retailers will start selling the soda Monday.

Jones Soda said it would be up to local stores to set prices for Turkey & Gravy soda. Other sodas from the company typically cost $1 to $1.50.

This isn't the company's first experiment in exotic carbonation. Fish tacos and ham flavors have also been offered as promotional soda flavors.

That's disgusting.

Reminds me of when the old "Scratch and Sniff" stickers suddenly realized they could add disgusting smells too - like Skunk... ::)  Some combinations of products are just better left alone!

Turkey gravy-flavored soda!

Though it may go good with turkey or chicken in a can!  :D

"Local retailers will start selling the soda Monday."

...under the updated brand name, "Thanksgiving Leftover Soda."

Wow. Someone's finally successfully marketed backwash, and all it took was a website. God Bless the Internet.

Looking forward to July and "Hotdog & Chips Soda." Mmm.
Post sober.

Any Scandanavians in the audience may know what Lutefisk is...for those that don't:
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Ingredients:
1 kg dried fish
100 g caustic soda
30 liters of water

Saw the fish in suitably sized pieces or leave it whole. Put in water. Leave in water in a cool place for 5-6 days if cut in pieces, 8 days if the fish is whole. Change the water every day.

For the luting use a plastic or stainless steel or enamelled tub (the enamel must be unchipped). Wooden vessels, china or stoneware may also be used.

Place the fish in the tub with the skin side up. Dissolve caustic soda in the water, pour over the fish until covered complete by lut water. Leave the fish in a cold place for 3-4 days.

When the fish is completely luted, it will be well swollen and you should be able to put a finger through it. Rinse the fish and leave in cold water 4-6 days. Change water every day.

If the fish stays in water for too long after the luting, it may be soft and difficult to boil. Test boil a piece, if you are uncertain.

Do not make lutefisk in the warm season.

1 kg dry fish makes about 5 kg lutefisk.

Anyway...just thought the people at Jones should try Lye Soaked Cod as their Christmas Flavor

You know, I've never seen Jones Soda here in OKC, but I was reading on another board that up in Seattle, they have a bubblegum-flavored soda which is quite good.

'Course, you don't hear about that.  You hear about the turkey and gravy-flavored soda, and the fish taco-flavored soda, and the ham-flavored soda. . .

Turkey/Gravy flavored soda?  Fish taco flavor? Ham flavor?  WHY?!?!  Did a majority of fat Americans feel cheated out of a full course meal when drinking a soda?

GROSS!!!  
Binders full of astromechs...
