It’s Jones Soda Egg Nog Soda, another 4-Pack installment released as part of the Jones Soda Holiday collection for 2006.
I’ll tell you right off the bat that I don’t like the taste of Egg Nog. It’s too “eggy”, too “milky”, and just too heavy. Don’t even get me started on the health benefits, or lack thereof, in that drink. So realize that as I review this beverage, I’m taking one for the team!
This drink is sweetened with high fructose corn syrup and is packaged in the standard red/green labeling found in the 2006 4-Packs. It’s colored yellow, in case you couldn’t figure that out from the photos, made possible by both Yellow #5 and Yellow #6. So yes, it’s a very yellow drink!
Opening the bottle, this drink smells like medicine. And that’s not a good thing. Who wasn’t to drink yellow medicine?
As for the taste, man, this is not very good. Not the “I want to vomit because it tastes like turkey” variety, but more along the lines of “why am I putting this in my mouth instead of spraying it on my windows to clean them” tone of voice. This is not a good drink.
There is a revolting aftertaste and I’m not even sure what the main taste is supposed to be. Whatever it is, it’s not clean, as the flavor just lingers in your mouth. Quick, grab a cracker to cleanse your palette!
Here are the facial reactions of some friends who tried this drink with me:
