News: Jones Soda Offers Poutine-Flavored Soda

Probably not a surprise from a company that's released Turkey & Gravy-flavored soda, but Jones Soda is offering a limited-edition Poutine-flavored soda exclusively to Canada.

Poutine is probably best known as the quintessential Canadian dish of French fries topped with brown gravy and cheese curd. The dish is so popular that it's regularly available at Wendy's and KFC restaurants in the country (and have been offered at McDonald's and Burger King in the past).

The soda is described by the brand in the following manner: "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."

Poutine-flavored Jones Soda will be available in select regions across Canada, including Quebec (where Poutine was invented), Ontario, and Vancouver.

  1. It was so amusing to see poutine here in America become so popular a few years back. I'm Canadian and you'll be hard-pressed to find an authentic poutine outside of Quebec. These days, you can find it all over Canada, albeit mostly bastardized versions of the original, but not too long ago it was just a Quebecker thing. Calling it the "quintessential Canadian dish" just sounds absurd to me, because there are many other things that you can actually find legitimate examples of all over Canada. You Americans are like little kids getting a new toy for Christmas sometimes with your pet obsessions. What's next? Nanaimo bars?
