Eugh. I saw this on the news the other day and was hoping it was a joke. Apparently not.
SEATTLE, Washington (AP) — Coming soon next to the Coke and Pepsi in a store near you: ham-and latke-flavored soda to make your holiday feast complete.
Jones Soda’s Christmas Pack flavors are Sugar Plum, Egg Nog, Christmas Tree and Christmas Ham.
It even will be kosher, the company making it says — including the ham.
Jones Soda Co., the Seattle-based purveyor of offbeat fizzy water, is selling holiday-themed limited-edition packs of flavored sodas.
The Christmas pack will feature such flavors as Sugar Plum, Christmas Tree, Egg Nog and Christmas Ham. The Hanukkah pack will have Jelly Doughnut, Apple Sauce, Chocolate Coins and Latkes sodas.
Sugar plum could be good as a mixer (I’m thinking of a low-rent version of the salted plum vodka Collins at Pok Pok). Everything else sounds yucky. Apparently they do this every year: “Last year’s seasonal pack was Thanksgiving-themed, with Green Pea, Sweet Potato, Dinner Roll, Turkey and Gravy, and Antacid sodas.”
