Jones Soda, J&D Foods launches bacon soda
November 4, 2010
SEATTLE — Jones Soda Co. and J&D Foods are introducing a new bacon-flavored soda. J&D Foods produces Bacon Salt, Baconnaise, BaconPOP and Bacon Gravy.
“We spend a lot of time listening to our customers on social media sites, and we couldn’t help but take notice of the hundreds of thousands of people taking part in bacon discussion boards and fan groups right now,” said Mike Spear, marketing director for Jones Soda. “We felt it was our duty as leaders in the premium soda category to carbonate bacon’s salty goodness.”
The products are available on-line at www.myjones.com/store and www.store.baconsalt.com, where consumers may purchase two bottles of the soda, a bag of Cheddar BaconPOP bacon and cheddar flavored popcorn, J&D’s Bacon Lip Balm and a package of J&D’s Bacon Gravy for $9.99.
The companies have said that given a successful launch they may collaborate on more products in the future.
