Here is the holiday beverage you have all been waiting for, latke flavored pop to tempt your tastebuds, yuk! It will even be kosher, the company making it says.
Jones Soda Co., the Seattle-based purveyor of offbeat fizzy water, is selling holiday-themed limited-edition packs of flavored sodas. 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.
â€œAs always, both packs are kosher and contain zero caffeine,â€ Jones said in a statement. The packs will go on sale Sunday, with a portion of the proceeds to be given to charity, the company said. Jonesâ€™ products feature original label art and frequently odd flavors. Last yearâ€™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, Jones came up with Perspiration, Dirt, Sports Cream and Natural Field Turf. The company â€” fortunately or unfortunately â€” prides itself on the accuracy of the taste. Jones also makes more traditional flavors, including root beer, cherry and strawberry sodas. My predictions are that these will sell quite well, then fizzle!
