A Terrible Idea That You Wish Was Good : Poutine Flavored Soda

Poutine flavored Soda is a terrible idea, but it's a shame that it is. Jones is hoping to expand sales in Canada by introducing a soda that tastes like fries, gravy and cheese curds.
“We recognize the buzz we receive when we launch fun flavours like Turkey and Gravy Jones Soda and Bacon Jones Soda,” commented Andrew Baumann, Jones Soda’s Marketing & Social Media Manager. “With continued requests for these past flavours and calls to keep coming out with more, 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.”

The Poutine flavour will be available in select regions across Canada and most notably in Quebec (where Poutine was invented in the 1950s), as well as Ontario and Vancouver:"

Sure, it's nice to get some props from an American company and to know that they recognize that Canada is a different country however, I have a feeling that this move won't win Jones many new fans. Some things are just not meant to be liquified and carbonated and poutine is, very likely, one of those things.

Still, it might be worth grabbing a few bottles as decorative conversation starters or to threaten unruly children with.
