Legend has it that when Coca Cola first came out a century back, it contained a substance (Cocaine) which made it highly addictive! While the addiction part may not be entirely substantiated, I have met a fair number of people who ‘can’t live’ without a Coke (or Pepsi).
Having grown up in the South, I have had a few “Co’ Cola’s”, as we call them, and while I love their taste, they simply can’t compare to the “new” flavors that have emerged recently of soda with Cane Sugar instead of Corn Syrup. Pepsi has tried it, Coke makes a version in Mexico of this, however, my all time favorite is Jones Soda.
There are several dozen flavors (check out some of the uber-bright ones in the picture), but the purest and most addictive of them all is their Cola flavor.
Aha! Therein lies the rub (or whatever Shakespearean quote that I meant to say).
It turns out that while stores stock plenty of Fufu Berry and Green Apple, finding Cola flavor is a veritable search for the Holy Grail.
I have contacted the company, hoping that they could point me towards a store in my area that carries it. What I got in reply was a canned answer that directed me to, “check with my local store for all my favorite Jones soda flavors”.
Um….they don’t carry my favorite flavor. That’s why I am contacting you!
So, I have tried again. I have contacted Jones on their website and via Twitter @jonessodaco, hopefully someone in their system can figure out where they stock it and send me a crate or two.
I’m off to try their Facebook site, wish me luck, and thanks for reading!
