Update: Learn more about this limited edition drink and read our review of Jones Bacon Soda!
Last year it was Jones Tofurky & Gravy Soda. This year, bacon is on the menu from the folks at Jones Soda.
The company has announced Jones Bacon Soda as part of a larger holiday pack you can order for the season. This continues a grand tradition of disgusting drinks such as Turkey & Gravy, Brussels Sprout, and Latke Sodas.
Here’s the press release from Jones outlining the limited edition flavor:
Jones Soda Co. and J&D’s Foods Bottle Up Bacon
Bubbly Bacon-Flavored Soda Set to Sizzle
SEATTLE, WA – (Marketwire – November 4, 2010) – Jones Soda Co., a leader in the premium soda category known for its unique branding and innovative marketing, today revealed they are in fact selling a long-rumored bacon-flavored soda made in partnership with J&D’s Foods, the maker of such bacon flavored products as Bacon Salt, Baconnaise, BaconPOP and Bacon Gravy.
“Bacon is like the eighth wonder of the world,” said Jones Soda Marketing Director, Mike Spear. “We spend a lot of time listening to our customers on social media sites, and we couldn’t help but take notice of the hundreds of thousands of people taking part in bacon discussion boards and fan groups right now. We felt it was our duty as leaders in the premium soda category to carbonate bacon’s salty goodness.”
Available today at http://www.myjones.com/store and http://www.store.baconsalt.com, bacon fans can purchase two bottles of the salty new soda; a bag of J&D’s Cheddar BaconPOP™ bacon and cheddar flavored popcorn; J&D’s Bacon Lip Balm and a package of J&D’s Bacon Gravy for $9.99 plus shipping and handling.
Jones Soda, together with the team at J&D’s Foods, dedicated a team of flavor experts to the development of the soda for months with the goal of capturing bacon’s unmistakable flavor in a carbonated form. Both companies say the successful launch of the new soda may only be the tip of the iceberg in their collaboration.
“Our job is to give our customers the flavors they love, and they undoubtedly love bacon. This was the perfect alignment for us,” commented Spear. “Until now, it was impossible to guzzle your favorite breakfast meat, so this is a huge step for bacon lovers everywhere and may be the start of a very long relationship.”
We’re looking forward to reviewing this beverage, though we probably already know how it’s going to taste. However, it wouldn’t be the holidays without something crazy from Jones!
