I recently had the opportunity to try out some new sodas from a popular northwest company, Jones Soda company, based out of Seattle! I hadn’t ever tried their sodas out before, although I’ve seen them frequently at Target and have been wanting to try them. I have to tell you that I seriously am not a big soda drinker – I rarely drink soda, I’m just a plain jane, water kind-of gal.
But, I tell ya, I honestly really enjoyed each of the Jones Soda’s that I tried! They were delicious!! We tried 3 flavors – Rootbeer, Cream and Orange Cream–ahh, the orange cream was my favorite!! Not to sound like a commercial, but the taste was very smooth and tasted much lighter than most sodas–not as thick and syrupy-tasting as I think many of the rootbeer & cream sodas can taste. They have so many fun flavors, too – I’m going to have to go out and get some of their more unusual flavors to try out – such as Fufu Berry and Crushed Melon since I love fruity drinks. The best part to me – their drinks are made with pure cane sugar – no high fructose corn syrup!!
Not only does Jones Soda sell these great tasting drinks, they also look cool with their fun, unique labels on glass bottles! They actually use real-life photos that people submit on their website to add uniqueness to their labels! It’s totally free to submit photos – check it out here to see details on how to do that!
Another cool option, though, is to create your own customizable labels with the flavor you want and use them to commemorate a special event or maybe just for a fun party with friends!! You can submit your favorite picture, pick out the perfect flavor and even add a quote on the back!
Here are some fun ideas for how you could use these customizable bottles::
-1st birthday party
-Retirement party -have a picture of the retiree and a special quote on the back–you can make it funny or serious
-Wedding favors (this could get quite pricey-so for those who are planning a more frugal wedding-you could have some on display in various locations around the reception).
-Mother’s Day or Father’s Day present
-Family reunion or class reunion
-4th of July party or Summer BBQ
Jones Soda actually did a sample of what a few of my pictures would look like on their bottles to give you some ideas of what it looks like – I chose pictures for a 1st birthday party, Father’s Day present, and Girls’ Night Out. Aren’t they fun?!
