Hey, folks. Sorry for the lack of blog lately - I've been tearing apart the house a.k.a. packing. One thing I came across was the 2005 Jones Soda Holiday Pack, which I got for Christmas.
Holiday meal flavored pop. Costanza looks on.
Despite the fact that the set is (at least) four months old, I decided to chill and taste it. All for your sick amusement. First course: Brussel sprouts.

Until now, the worst beverage that I've ever imbibed was some absinthe Shamrock gave me over New Year's. We have a new champion. I like Brussel sprouts. I HATED this soda. Dear sweet Lord, it tasted buttery! Next course: Wild herb stuffing.

If this is what those Stove Top folks were selling, those kids in the commercials would be skipping dinner rather than doubling up (gluttons). Next course: Cranberry.
Not terrible. It tasted like carbonated cranberry juice. Next course: Turkey and gravy.

I didn't like it, but at least it wasn't the Brussel sprouts again. Last course: Pumpkin pie.
Pumpkin pie soda.
Pumpkin is the best variety of pie, hands down. Okay, maybe key lime is best. But, I digress. Initially, I was taken aback by how the Jones people simulated the taste so closely. I swear I tasted crust. But then came the aftertaste. I don't feel so well.
Overall, these sodas were disgusting. I didn't finish any of them. If I can pull myself up off of the couch, I'm going to make a real dinner now. And then do my taxes (which should be tons more enjoyable).
(BTW, don't fall in love with the beard, as it's coming off next week. I'm sick of it and my brother thinks it's funny if I have Fun With Facial Hair - like donning some wicked Neil Young-esque sideburns.)
