Carbonated Turkey (and Sides!)

If you can't stomach the thought of preparing a Thanksgiving meal, but still want all that dinner table flavor, get yourself a Holiday Pack of Jones Soda. While the premium drinks company is famous for it's unusual flavors (fish taco and salmon being just a few of their strange concoctions), their Holiday Packs tend to sell out rather quickly. This year's flavors include: Turkey and Gravy soda, Sweet Potato soda, Dinner Roll Soda, Pea Soda, and Antacid Flavored Soda. Plus, the latter comes with a medicinal cup "for accurate servings!"

But, how does Peter van Stolk, CEO of the Seattle company feel about the novelty beverages?  "Why people buy it is beyond me. I can't drink a bottle of this stuff," said van Stolk.

Of course, if someone hands you a bottle, and you're looking for something to be thankful for, there are a few things. The sodas are all vegetarian, certified kosher, and contain zero caffeine, calories and carbs. Another thing to be thankful for: that Jones didn't come out with an Indian masala flavor. Said van Stolk, "we tried curried chicken. That was just wrong." Click here to learn more.
