Jones "Garbage" Soda

When you get thirsty this holiday season, you can reach for some funky flavors from Jones Soda. They're going to be selling holiday-themed limited edition packs of flavored soda. The Christmas pack will include Sugar Plum, Christmas Tree, Egg Nog and Christmas Ham.

Now who would want to drink ham flavored soda? As much as I like eating ham, I definitely would not want it in a carbonated liquid form. The same goes for the Christmas tree flavor. Mmmm, liquid bark. There are obviously some people out there who will drink this concoction though since they're going to sell it. But I'm not sure if I could associate with them.

Aside from these awful flavors, there will also be a Hanukkah pack featuring Jelly Doughnut, Apple Sauce, Chocolate Coins and Latke sodas. These aren't quite as odd, but I know I won't be buying them. And if all these flavors weren't enough, Jones Soda has a contract with Qwest Field, where the Seahawks play, to supply soda with such flavors as Perspiration, Dirt, Sports Cream and Natural Field Turf. This might actually explain quite a bit though.

Hopefully this hasn't inspired you to go out and buy any of this garbage. Don't further prove that people will indeed buy anything. Just because someone slaps a bar code on something doesn't mean that it should be bought.

although they sound gross, i might actually buy it now just to see what it tastes like. i guess it's true that any publicity is good publicity.

i must say that this statement doesn't help your credibility when it comes to in-n-out burger...

Some of the money goes to charity each year. These are more a novelty gift than anything. Stop by Target and pick up the Christmas Cocoa (Chocolate & Mint). It is good. I heard the Gingerbread wasn't and not sure about the Candy Cane one. Also, their assorted dessert pie pack at Target this year is awesome. Blueberry pie, apple pie, cherry pie, and lemon meringue. Yum!
