Product Launch: Jones Poutine Flavored Soda

If you’re not Canadian, you probably have no idea what the hell poutine is, so here’s a description from Wikipedia:

Poutine is a typical Canadian dish (originally from Quebec), made with french fries, topped with brown gravy and cheese curds. Sometimes additional ingredients are added.

With that knowledge, you would probably have no desire to suck down a soda with that flavor, but Seattle’s Jones Soda, purveyor of a variety of disgusting flavors, thinks differently.

“….we decided to create this new, unique flavour as a nod to our Canadian heritage. 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.”
