Sucking pea-flavored soda – the last straw?

November 21, 2006

Jones Soda, the people who make all those vile flavors you’d never put in your mouth, have announced green pea-flavored soda just in time for the holidays.

I’m just hoping the person who thought this up put it in a written memo, because actually saying, “Boss, let’s make pea-flavored soda” out loud sounds, well, even worse than it really is.

Remember, these guys already make flavors like fish taco, Brussel sprout, turkey and gravy… Even the head of the company won’t drink the stuff. The Jones chief executive says he drew the line at making chicken curry soda, adding, “That was just wrong.”  Here’s the story:
