Introducing Jones Bacon flavor soda!

J&D Foods, which specializes in bacon, has partnered with Jones Soda "to create a special-edition bacon-flavored drink just in time for the holidays." Because nothing says Merry Christmas like the taste of liquefied fried swine.

J&D Foods owner Justin Esch tells AOL News, "[Jones] knows soda. We know bacon. We were destined to merge our technologies for something big. We've already made bacon beauty products, bacon stationery and edible bacon products, so something drinkable was next." (The only way Esch can top this is by strapping on water skis, stapling a couple pounds of bacon to a life vest, and jumping over a bacon-flavored shark.) For just $10, you get two bottles of bacon-flavored soda, a bag of Cheddar BaconPop popcorn, a tube of bacon lip balm and a packet of brand-new bacon-flavored country gravy. And if you don't dig on swine, the company also sells a Tofurky and gravy soda.

A parade of New Yorkers grimaced and retched after sips of the pig-inspired pop unveiled by Jones Soda Co. - or just at the sound of it.

"That tastes disgusting," griped Tyrone Wallace, 26, of Brooklyn. "It made me want to throw up."

Jones boasts that its bacon soda is vegetarian friendly and kosher. Those who tried it said it tastes like swill.

Half of more than 40 people approached refused the taste test outright.

"You are supposed to eat bacon not drink it," snapped Arlette Cepeda of the Bronx.

David Horowitz was among a brave handful of Orthodox Jews willing to sample the swine-flavored soda.

"My mother is rolling over at this one, but I will give it a try," said Horowitz, 46, who provided a running commentary as he guzzled.

"Tastes like beef or something. It's quite strong, and thick. Oh! And it is gross! Who would want that?"

At Peter Luger's steak house in Brooklyn, the reaction among meat-eaters was similar.

"As much as I love bacon, it just turns me off," said waiter Otto Quintus, 65.

After catching a whiff, bartender Jessie Bilotta turned away.

"Oh God, no! It smells like dog poop," Bilotta, 28, said. "I wouldn't drink that even if it had alcohol in it."

Seattle-based Jones Soda teamed up with J&D's Foods, the maker of bacon-flavored products such as Bacon Salt and Baconaisse, to produce the burgundy-colored beverage.

For months, a team of "flavor experts" worked to simulate the perfect bacon flavor without adding any real bacon.

The soda is being touted as part of a new cocktail, mixed with bourbon, an egg, cream, and soda water.

Bacon soda can be bought only online as part of a package that includes other bacon-related foods.

"Until now, it was impossible to guzzle your favorite breakfast meat, so this is a huge step for bacon lovers everywhere," said Jones Soda's Mike Spear.

At least one New Yorker agrees.

"It tastes just like it!" crowed Kci Rosado, a 16-year-old Bronx student. "That's amazing."

I would never drink that, but I bet it would be great to bake a ham in.

On my word, I thought the title was "Introducing Jonas Brothers flavor soda!"

Just the thing to slake my thirst.

$10... plus $30 shipping to Canada.

I would have definitely bought it if the shipping was more reasonable, I can't justify $20 a bottle though.
