Jones Soda Review: Christmas Flavors 2008

Updated on December 15, 2011

Once again, it's time for another Jones Soda review. Every year around the holidays, Jones Soda Co. releases several holiday flavors that are sure to please or disgust. This year, Jones' lineup consisted of Candy Cane, Pear Tree, and Mele Kalikimaka. Candy cane, which was also one of last year's flavors, had a smooth peppermint taste. It wasn't overly sweet thankfully, allowing me to finish the whole bottle without gagging. It's an enjoyable flavor, but it's probably best to only drink one every now and then, lest it turn on you. Pear Tree made me brace myself for a bark like flavor (I'm sure many remember the Pine Tree flavor released several years ago), but I was pleasantly suprised with a refreshing pear essence instead. It tasted a bit watered down, but otherwise had a delicious taste. Unlike the prior flavor, I was able to finish off the entire pack quite easily. Mele Kalikimaka had a really sweet coconut flavor. To someone who likes coconuts, I'm sure they wouldn't have any trouble enjoying this, but I unfortunately don't care for the taste. These flavors can be found at most Target stores, and they are usually released around the first of every December. Even if the names of each flavor gross you out, it's still always fun to try them for the experience. Who knows? You may just find one you like.

      Good review. This is an interesting company which, despite the artificially high price of sugar, uses real sugar rather than the less expensive corn syrup as the sweetning agent. Their exiotic and specialty flavors are also a good marketing tactic. I must admit that while I generally don't care for many of the flavors I have found a few that are a nice alternative to my usual Diet Pepsi.
