Review: Jones Soda Gruesome Grape Soda (2007)


Jones Soda Gruesome Grape Soda is a returning flavor from 2006 and is another installment in the 2007 Jones Soda Halloween 2007 collection. Featured in a 8 oz. purple can available only via exclusive 4 packs from Target, it’s sweet, but tasty!

While the can design from 2006 was purple as well, it contrasted with the current offering by featuring a smiling green pumpkin face. For 2007, the can got meaner! This time around, a one-toothed sinister face (featuring green and orange colors) greets you while you drink this beverage.

Overall, it’s a pretty good grape soda. Very sweet and candy-like, which makes the 8 oz. size just about right as far as consumption. I probably liked the less-sweet flavor found in Tropicana Twister Soda Grape better when considering it on the merits of a grape soft drink. But Gruesome Grape is superior in flavor to Fanta Grape.

As a novelty drink — and especially one from Jones — this is a pretty good installment. The fact that it was sweetened with inverted cane sugar also goes a long way regarding the enjoyment factor of this drink.

Tasty, but super sweet!
