Review: Jones Soda Turkey & Gravy Soda (2006)


Does one really have to explain the history, context, and fascination with Jones Soda Turkey & Gravy Soda? After all, this is the drink that started this novelty trend back in 2003. Nothing has repeated the impact that the flavor had at the time, but it's fun to remember the insanity, isn't it? Anyway, it's back as part of the 2006 Jones Soda Holiday collection, specifically as part of the Holiday Pack

Jones Soda Turkey & Gravy Soda

We tried Turkey & Gravy Soda two times last year, as it was included as part of the National Holiday Pack as well as part of the Regional Holiday Pack. It doesn't matter how many times you test it, the outcome is always the same. Amazingly vile!

Yum, a gingerbread house!

As always, the primary driver of this flavor is the fact that it does in fact smell like turkey, which really throws your senses off. However, the taste isn't quite there. Instead you are welcomed by 300mg of sodium, which when combined with the Splenda, makes for a rather unpleasant drinking experience.

This time around, we were greeted with a bottle that featured a photo on the label (Photo #6831) submitted by Maggie Kill of Crescent City, CA. It looks like a closeup of the exterior of a gingerbread house… which is nothing like drinking Jones Soda Turkey & Gravy Soda! Maybe the image is to distract you from the vomit that you experience afterwards. But don't take my word for it…

Branden and Megan… they hate me now!

Ah Jones… what would a holiday party be without your nostalgic Turkey & Gravy Soda! Sure, it's disgusting… but you guys are probably laughing all the way to the bank!
