Review: Jones Soda Candy Corn Soda (2008)


For the life of me, I cannot figure out why Jones Soda Candy Corn Soda keeps returning year after year as part of the Jones Soda Halloween collection. It’s a vile, neon yellow-colored beverage that we’ve previously described as “dirty urine“.

Jones Soda Candy Corn Soda

Having first appeared in 2005, it returned in 2006, then again in 2007. The only real change was in 2007 when the sweetener shifted to inverted cane sugar vs. high fructose corn syrup.

This incarnation once again comes in an 8 oz. can featured as part of a 4-park exclusive to Target. Gone are the scary pumpkin faces. This time around we’ve got a brown-colored design that depicts a werewolf with huge fangs. Well, it’s either that or an Ewok on steroids.

The taste is still the same… heavy on syrup, with a smell and flavor hearkening back to maple syrup. Very sweet, nothing at all like candy corn itself. I wouldn’t mind a real candy corn soft drink. This, however, is not it.
