Jones Soda Dishes Up Canadian Delicacy
SEATTLE — Jones Soda Co., a leader in the premium beverage category known for its unique branding, is releasing Poutine flavoured Jones Soda as a special, limited release item, exclusively in its Canadian markets.
Following in the footsteps of other distinctive flavours for which Jones Soda has become known, Poutine flavoured Jones Soda is based on the quintessential Canadian dish made with French fries, brown gravy, and cheese curds, and is being released as Jones Soda’s latest limited edition flavour.
“We recognize the buzz we receive when we launch fun flavours like Turkey and Gravy Jones Soda and Bacon Jones Soda,” commented Andrew Baumann, Jones Soda’s Marketing & Social Media Manager. “With continued requests for these past flavours and calls to keep coming out with more, we decided to create this new, unique flavour as a nod to our Canadian heritage. With a nice balance of rich, savory gravy over a starchy potato base, and accented with those fatty, cheesy notes you expect in a plate of poutine, we believe we’ve developed the perfect liquid version of this undisputedly Canadian delicacy.”
The Poutine flavour will be available in select regions across Canada and most notably in Quebec (where Poutine was invented in the 1950s), as well as Ontario and Vancouver:
- In Quebec, Jones has partnered with Frite Alors, a well-known Quebecois chain that focuses on poutine offerings, to offer combination deals for Poutine Soda along with regular Jones Soda.
- Our Canadian Facebook fans will receive updates via the official Jones Soda Facebook fan page as to where they can find the limited edition Poutine flavour.
- Jones Soda will be sampling at various college campuses, and students will be able to compete in challenges to sample this unique, limited edition flavour.
- We have also partnered with Quebec-based Poutine Week to engage their poutine enthusiast fan base.
