Just in time for Thanksgiving...
...comes Turkey and Gravy Soda from the Jones Soda Company
A new Turkey and Gravy Soda tastes, well, pretty much like you would imagine. But that's not stopping people from buying it.
Founder and CEO Peter van Stolk dreamed up the seasonal flavor on a lark, but admits he can't stomach an entire bottle.
The liquid's ominous, murky brown color accurately warns consumers about the taste. The first sips bring a mix of sweet caramel and savory lard - and it's downhill from there.
A limited number of Turkey & Gravy Sodas will be available in stores around Seattle and Olympia for the suggested retail price of 99 cents. A few entrepreneurs are selling theirs on eBay.com; by Tuesday, the bidding was up to $63 for a two-bottle set.
he article goes on to describe the taste as if you took turkey, gravy and mashed potatoes and mixed it up on a blender, that is pretty much what this tastes like. Myself would not pay 63 bucks for two bottles of this stuff, but hey what does Myself know? Now if they would only make sweaty male crotch flavor...
