While we were so busy looking to our friends to the south last week — Mexico, for all our Cinco de Mayo glory — we didn't realize that Jones Soda was appealing to our neighbors to the north. Introducing the soda flavor only a Candian could truly love, the Poutine flavor. Yeah, you read that right.
Jones Soda, already famous for their turkey and bacon flavors, has created a poutine flavor to debut in its Canadian markets, including Quebec, Ontario, and British Columbia. "With continued requests for these past flavors and calls to keep coming out with more, we decided to create this new, unique flavor as a nod to our Canadian heritage," said Andrew Baumann, Jones Soda’s marketing and social media manager, in a release about the new poutine flavor.
What exactly does it taste like? "With a nice balance of rich, savory gravy over a starchy potato base, and accented with those fatty, cheesy notes you expect in a plate of poutine, we believe we’ve developed the perfect liquid version of this undisputedly Canadian delicacy," Baumann said. So, you know, if you want to drink your grease go right ahead — but that's not even the weirdest soda flavor we've found.
