Speaking of Sodas...

Anyone else tried Jones Soda? We just started selling it at Target a few weeks ago, and I think I'm addicted to the stuff.

Cream soda, root beer, blue bubblegum, green apple, etc. Not too fond of the black cherry because it's sugar free (leaves that tangy taste in the back of my thought).

Apparently, it's been sold for years, but I'd never heard of it...

Yeah, its good stuff, but a bit too expensive. I drank their cream soda nearly every day for a whole summer, but then I was poor.

guess that whole theory of the world revolving around you is kinda tossed out the window now, huh?

There is a lot of smaller brand name sodas that taste a shit lot better then the generic crap on the shelf of your local ralphs, albertsons, etc. Hell, jones soda has been on those shelves for ages.

Check this place out for a lot of differen cool brands that will make you go... "woah"

Wow, who knew Jack was such a soda snob? Jones is based out of Seattle, so every store carries it here by now. I'm too cheap to by it though. If I want a black cherry soda I can buy Shasta. A lot of their flavors just seem too risky to me.

They've gotten a lot bigger than I thought. You don't need to mail order it if you can find a store locally.

Hell yeah, Jones has been sold around here for a long time. It's really good stuff, but I hardly drink it. I don't know why, I just don't.

I don't know how anybody could possibly drink Turkey and Gravy Soda. That's just disgusting.

Great Googly Moogly!

Is that Turkey and Gravy flavor for real? Has anyone tried it that can give a description of how it tastes?

It is for real. It was released as a limited edition flavor last year with all proceeds going to charity.


Unfortunately, I was unable to find it after going to 5 different supermarkets in the area.

Here is the previous thread:

I tried it once at a Panera Bread. I tried ordering an IBC Root beer, but they switched brands on me! So I sighed and went with the Jones root beer, and that, sir, was no IBC root beer.

Agreed. No root beer is quite like IBC Root Beer.

The secret to IBC Root Beer! Revealed at last!
Spoiler:
It's laced with pure uncut MF'ing crack cocaine! It's the only explanation!!!11

I knew a guy at work that had a few bottles of it in his cubicle, so it's real. He never dared to try it though. Wuss!

I've seen it at the minimart a few blocks from my house, but have yet to buy it because I don't like soda enough to pay that much for it.

Whatever. You live in los angeles, go to the store yourself... or don't. I don't give a shit. An attempt to offer more soda options and selection and you have to turn it into something? The place didn't get numerous "best of.." awards for nothing in varies papers and built a reputation off selling pop for nothing. Then again, you must have just responded like that since I posted it. You really are bored, aren't you?

Do they have a Diet version? I swore off regular soda years ago but I occasionally pick up something diet when I eat pizza or a hotdog.
