Target now sells twelve packs of Jones soda in cans. They are priced on sale this week at two cases for $7.00.

The cases are sold exclusively at Target. I saw the Green Apple, Blue Bubble Gum, Peach, and Black Cherry at the one close to me.

This is very cool!

Is the taste any different than in bottles?

I'm gonna have to say no for now. They've only just started putting it in cans, so after a few months, when some cases have had time to settle, then you can tell for sure; but for now, there's now aluminum taste to it.

A "Blue Bubble Gum" soda isn't the most disgusting thing you've ever drank?

I have to admit though, if I were six I'd be all over it.

What's on the cans? It seems to say that the pictures are only on the cases.

Here's a somewhat complete flavor listing. I've always liked FuFu berry.

5 or 6 years ago, they did a deal with Image Comics where they made sodas with Image characters on them, including Jack-in-the-Box from Astro City.

We ordered some from Diamond at the comic store, but the shipping was very hit and miss AND not cheap.

You can pay and get ANY pic on there - a couple we hang out with had their 40th a year or two ago and their kids got 12 cases of bottles with their wedding picture on them..

Oh yeah, half fu-fu berry and half cream soda..

I love jones...

I pimp out Jones Soda semi-regularly in this forum, so this is welcome news.

The press release on the Jones site says that Green Apple, Blue Bubblegum, Strawberry Lime, Cream Soda, Root Beer and Sugar-Free Black Cherry are Target-bound. I can vouch for Blue Bubblegum (not bad), Green Apple (not bad) and Strawberry Lime (choice), and my wife likes the other two non-diet flavors. She's a Fufu Berry addict, so hopefully that'll come next.

I need to find someone who carries the non-diet Chocolate Fudge; my local Foodsource has Diet Chocolate Fudge, which is drinkable but nothing I'd buy all the time.

Have you tried it? It's good stuff. Not at all overpowering as you might expect from a bubble gum flavored soda. I find it weird that it's blue, though, as it reminds me more of the original (pink) flavor of Bubble Yum than any other type of gum.

Actually, I just tried Mountain Dew Baja Blast* for the first time the other day. I didn't know the world was clamoring for a soda that tastes like a liquified green lollipop, but it was MUCH too sweet for me to consider drinking more than a sip.

*Actually, it wasn't THE MOST DISGUSTING THING I'VE EVER DRANK, but I was trying to stay more on-topic than just sorta on-topic.

I'd love to try those Jones sodas, but being diabetic prevents it. Anyone know of any good diet grape or strawberry sodas?

Diet Rite White Grape soda should do the trick for you. In fact, all the Diet Rite flavors are really good. The flavors are tangerine, kiwi-strawberry, white grape, black cherry, red rasberry (my personal fave) and golden peach (haven't tried it yet).

I saw the Jones cans at Target the other day, and I realized just how much of a whore I am for packaging 'cause the bland looking cans (someone before had already ripped a case open) didn't really grab me and make me want to buy it. The bottles are just so much cooler.

Jones has a Sugar Free Black Cherry that is excellent.
