Seattle-based Jones Soda is launching a product that will on be available in Canada - a soda flavored like the Canadian dish of poutine.
If you don't know what poutine is, it's french fries, brown gravy and cheese curds. Jones Soda says the limited release poutine flavored soda is sweetened with a blend of natural sweeteners, including pure cane sugar and organic agave syrup.
“We recognize the buzz we receive when we launch fun flavours like Turkey and Gravy Jones Soda and Bacon Jones Soda,” said Andrew Baumann, Jones Soda’s Marketing & Social Media Manager. “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.
