Reviewer "Aristophanes": 1/5
Reviewer "Rasputin": 1/5 "An uninspired attempt to amalgamate cotton candy and root beer."
In case you're not familiar with Jones Soda, they are that hipster soda company that made unique craft soda popular by afixing unique photos to their labels and writing witty quips on the bottle. Jones Soda is kind of like a hipster who was the first kid in town to wear skinny jeans, but then failed to notice that everyone else was wearing them, and that they looked better too.
The root beer smells identical to those gummy artificial root beer candies, which is either a complement to the candy manufacturer or an insult to Jones, depending on your opinion. The flavour is simple and very sweet, with an aftertaste of cheap gumball. Jones is unique in one way: after swallowing, it leaves the unmistakable feeling that someone has sprayed a sticky layer of aerosol rootbeer mist into your mouth. We imagine that if Wal-Mart sold a store-brand soda (and I'm sure they do, although I really don't care to check), that their cheapest diet cola would taste something like Jones Soda Root Beer.
Sorry Jones, but you can't fool us into thinking your soda tastes good just because you put a frog or a Model T or a snowboarder on the label!
