Looks like Jones has released the info on their holiday flavors. No Turkey & Gravy this year... but you have a choice of a Christmas Pack and a Chanukah Pack... plus a couple seasonal 4-Packs.

Hmm, I guess I was sleeping when i wrote that...

Jones new 4 packs this year are:
Christmas Cocoa
Candy Cane
Gingerbread Man

Candy Cane was out last year and it looks like eggnog and sugar plum are no more.

I'm going to have to get me some. I had the mashed potato flavor last year. It was alright

Well, I've started by seasonal reviews of the Jones holiday line. First off was Gingerbread Man Soda. This is only available in the 4-Pack variety:

I really didn't anticipate liking this drink at all. I mean, c'mon, it's a Jones holiday flavor, so there's one strike already. Also, I'm not a gingerbread fan at all.

But in the end, I actually liked this drink. If it would have had more cola-flavor, we would have our Pepsi Holiday Spice replacement all ready to go. It had a good clean taste, heavily influenced by spices. And I didn't even throw up! I'd totally try it again.

So, has anyone had the Jones Soda Christmas Cocoa yet? I tried it tonight thinking that it might not be all that great, but was pleasantly surprised. (I know, scary!)

The scent of this drink is what really caught my attention. It's pretty dead-on. And as far as the flavor, yup, it's cocoa. Not too overpowering, very unique, clean aftertaste. It's purely niche, and I'm sure you wouldn't exactly eat your dinner with this drink, but I think this was a nice showing when compared to the horrible experiences in other parts of the holiday line over the years.

But would you drink it warm for the full "cocoa" experience? :)
