magic potion

I love Jones Soda - kooky flavors, fun labels on real glass bottles, and it's made with pure cane sugar so you get none of that bitter corn syrup aftertaste like you do with most other mass marketed pop.* We keep a few of their colas on hand for when we get tired of making mojitos with our rum.

Some of their special edition sodas have been a bit questionable, like the set they released for the 2004 holidays (turkey & gravy soda, anyone?) but their newest offering looks really good...

...what to drink when you're rolling polyhedrals.

* soda, Coke, minerals, whatever

I moved from Detroit to Memphis when I was 9.

I caught hell for saying "pop".

The Jones Soda I've tried I've liked, but I can't justify the price on that.
At a dollar a bottle I might, but I can get cane sugar soda at Whole Foods and Central Market for half that per ounce and lots of different flavors too.

People still play D&D ?

That was so, so, . . . 70s.





Just kidding, Breda. :-)

Though I never did get into D&D, I did get exposed, once, to the military re-enactment board games like Waterloo back in 1977 in college. Slow. Very slow.

(And the above comment makes me feel somehow very old right now.)

Please tell me I am not the only gunnie who is dorky enough to have spotted the flaws in those sodas.

Please.... anybody...

Interesting, I haven't had one of those in years!

LOL, I remember those Thanksgiving sodas; we got a case for our younger brothers to try. The orange-y one (squash?) wasn't terrible, but the turkey one was NASTY.

Pass the D20s.

Yes, I still play D&D. And I'll probably have to give those a try, though these days our kolbol killing is usually done with ale and stout.

Still, gave me a chuckle this morning. Thanks Breda.

I don't think they have Jones Soda at the Enclave downtown, but they have other good soda there.

If you like Jones, you should also try Boylan's. They are a small bottler out of NJ. that uses pure cane sugar instead of the evil high-fructose corn syrup

If you're looking for soda/pop with sugar, Costco has Coca-Cola from Mexico every so often. And I've seen Pepsi [and Coke?] on some of the Jewish holy days. You can always order Dr. Pepper from the original bottler - at a proce.

Yup. In the New York metro area as least, as passover approaches, you'll start seeing "Yellowcap" coke, which is made with real sugar, and is therefore kosher for passover.
