If you can handle the pun-infused name, Jones Soda Buried Pomegranate Soda is a new flavor released as part of the 2008 Jones Soda Halloween collection — and it offers a unique taste you’d be hard-pressed to find in other widely-available soft drinks. Featured in a 8 oz. can available only via exclusive 4 packs from Target, it’s not really cherry or pomegranate in flavor, but it’s still pretty good.
Sporting a predominantly white/black can featuring a Dracula-like face on the front, the name of the drink is rather hard to make out given that it’s written in a blood-like font. There really isn’t any indication of what’s in store regarding taste.
We’ve tested other drinks here on BevReview.com that claim to possess a pomegranate flavor, including some seasonal beverages like Pomegranate 7Up. Other sodas in the same ballpark might include Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash and Hansen’s Natural Sparkling Sleek Pomegranate Green Tea.
What was odd about Jones Buried Pomegranate Soda was that it really didn’t taste very cherry or pomegranate-like. The flavor was a bit weird, almost as if it was infused with some sort of herbal blend. That’s not to say it was gross; it just wasn’t expected. The light pink-colored drink did provide a unique taste profile, and for that, I’d recommend checking it out while you can find it.
