A few weeks ago, I was at Target with the girls when we saw these sodas.
Obviously, I bought a four pack of each. It was until this weekend that I had some time to test them out. Jones Soda does of lot of interesting things like letting customers submit photos for printing on bottles to creating limitied edition sodas of various flavors.
This year's Halloween set includes Gruesome Grape, Berried Alive, Candy Corn, and Spider Cider.
Flavor: Just like grape soda
Comments: Besides the black color, nothing special here
Color: light whitish-blue
Flavor: blueberry flavor, very sweet with a hint of citrus tang
Comments: Zoe & Mira's favorite of the set
Color: bright, almost flourescent yellow
Flavor: amazingly like candy corn
Comments: The flavor was dead on and I expected the waxy aftertaste from the real thing. Subtle, not overpowering flavor.
Color: pale yellowish-orange, almost like iced tea
Flavor: Noticeable apple flavor, but a little overpowered by the sweetness
Comments: While still very sweet, less than the others. Michele and Michael's favorite.
While I was testing and taking pictures, Mira insisted that we 'experiment' with the soda. The experiment was to mix the Candy Corn with Berried Alive.
Color: khahki greenish
Comments: Made Mira happy to see the new color, made me queasy drinking it
Overall, I feel that Jones Soda is making an effort here to do something different than Coke and Pepsi, taking chances with new ideas and flavors in soda pop. We'll continue to buy and try the limited editions as they come out.
So if you want to have some fun this Halloween with the kids and need to give them a little more sugar, head down to Target and pick up four pack or two.Posted by michael at October 29, 2006 10:06 PM
