Uh, just in time for the various winter holidays, Jones Soda Co. is introducing Christmas and Chanukah multi-packs of soda. The Chanukah pack boasts the four soda flavors of latke, sufganyiot, apple sauce and chocolate gelt. While I enjoy all four food quite a bit, the thought of drinking latke-flavored soda on ice makes me want to gag. But, I will try it with an open mind. Hang on, though, it get so much creepier. We can pick up a Christmas four-pack for our Christmas-celebrating friends with Sugar Plum (maybe), Egg Nog (hmm), Christmas Tree (pardon?) and Christmas Ham (come again?). Wait, wait, it gets even better. All the flavors are kosher. All kosher. Even the Christmas Ham. Oy. Ugh. Can you imagine? Can you imagine the rabbinic inspection the day the Christmas Ham flavor was launched?  Oy. Anyway, I think my favorite part of the entire line is that the Chanukah package "includes one completely functional dreidel".

I will give Jones a point for creativity, though, certainly. I mean, this is the company who brought us the Thanksgiving packs in years past with flavors like "wild herb stuffing", "Brussels Sprout with Prosciutto" and "turkey and gravy". Correction. Turkey and Gravy soda is available this year, if that's your bag.

Or, if you're feeling particularly inspired, maybe we can all put our heads together and suggest a flavor. Hammentaschen? Carrot tzimmes? Challah? Potato kugel? Matzoh ball soda? Bleh. Okay, perhaps not.
