    I don't know if anyone saw this, but bevnet has an article up about the release of Jones soda in twelve ounce cans, sweetend with cane sugar. In my opinion this is great news. I have a question though does this presure coke or pepsi to use this?

    Cans? What a dumb idea. Jones' flagship packaging is glass bottles.

    The cans are so cheap in the stores, which is why they are probably doing it in cans only, and not their glass. You can buy a 4pk of bottles for like $5, or a 12 pack of cans for $4.50

    ...maybe they are trying to offset the higher price of cane sugar by putting it in cheaper packaging? I also think this is a silly idea, but better than nothing.

    If it does well, expect Pepsi/Coke to follow.

    You guys didn't get the whole article about the switch. PVS said that by mid 07, ALL jones will be cane sugar.(Includes Bottles). Cans currently sell for 3.99 a 12 pack @ target and Jones will be going national to many places with the cans in 07.
    All this is not bad for a company all us oldtimers here knew as sodasmelly said they would be out of biz 3 yrs ago. Stock price of almost 10, which will double by this time next yr imho. Anyway, Ron, hope all is good with you and yours, happy holidays. Though we had a few small battles way back, you seem like a good guy.

    I look forward to seeing how the flavor will change, good or bad, when it switches to Cane. I think that is a big step forward for this company. I never would have worked for Jones Soda Company if I didnt like their sodas, or thought they could sell. Is SS's defence, the company had been without profit for about 7-8 years. But hey, they are going in the right direction now. I actually bought a Orange and Cream Jones this weekend down by Barstow, CA on my way back from Las Vegas. Let me tell you, holiday traffic, normal 8 hour drive turned into a 14 drive, and lots of sodas and energy drinks in your bladder do not mix.

    I take it as great news too.

    However I don't think this will motivate Coke or Pepsi to do the same anytime soon.

    There have been several brands that have always had Cane Sugar.

    If Coke or Pepsi switched to Cane Sugar they would be admiting they made a mistake when they switched in the first place.
