Now I know America's going to hell....

Turkey & Gravy soda on the table for Thanksgiving
11/24/2003
SEATTLE (Reuters) - Thanksgiving dinner with all the fixings: cranberry sauce, stuffing and turkey gravy-flavored soda. Yummy?


In the latest food fad to emerge in the United States, Seattle specialty soda maker Jones Soda Co. scored a hit this week with the introduction of a limited batch of Turkey & Gravy-flavored soda.
The tan-colored soda sold out in just three hours after an initial batch was put up for sale on the company's Web site Friday, a spokeswoman for the company said.
Proceeds from the online sale, where two bottles of Turkey & Gravy soda sold for about $11, were donated to Toys for Tots, a children's charity. Local retailers will start selling the soda Monday.
Jones Soda said it would be up to local stores to set prices for Turkey & Gravy soda. Other sodas from the company typically cost $1 to $1.50.
This isn't the company's first experiment in exotic carbonation. Fish tacos and ham flavors have also been offered as promotional soda flavors.

I didnt even have to read the article. Its a Jones soda, and I will say do NOT knock it till they put it out and you try it. All their stuff is good, and the Bananaberry is like liquid crack. You can just drink it forever! Jones Soda is a GREAT small company soda make... Downtown Seattle, Owned and operated by Cannucks!

And I thought celery-flavored cream soda was the nastiest species of soda. [:X*]

That would be complemented nicely by some corn or wood flavored ice cream.

some local DJ's got the mfg to send them a couple bottles.. they noted it smelled like turkey and gravy, but they were put off by the taste, and didn't care to finish the bottle off. I'm with them, doesn't sound too tasty to me [:X*]
