Coke, Pepsi, or Ham?

A ham flavored soft drink?

Umm... Ham Good soda, the other white meat drink! No.
Well... Big Damn Ham, Get out and jam with a case of Ham! No, no...
Let's see... Take home some ham flavored soda, and scare your neighbors!
I got nothing.


I had the Ham Soda covered, piece of cake.
Then they tossed out more, things like Egg Nog, Jelly Doughnut, and Apple Sauce.
Okay, a little more writing and editing, and I got it.
But wait, they said, there's more. Green Pea, Sweet Potato, Dinner Roll, Turkey and Gravy, and Antacid.
No way. Really?
Hold on, said they. Don't forget about Perspiration, Dirt, Sports Cream and Natural Field Turf.
Right, I say. Now you're making fun of me. There is no way...
Yep, they say with a straight face. Way.
Perspiration and Dirt you say. True dat?
Dat true!
Where, exactly, does your Product Development team hold their meetings, the Loony Bin or the Crazy House? You guys aren't right, you are aware of this.
Yep!
Persperation? You all need evaluations.
Yeah, we know.

So as I said, I got nothing.

Enjoy a refreshing ham soda
SEATTLE, Washington (AP) -- Coming soon next to the Coke and Pepsi in a store near you: ham-and latke-flavored soda to make your holiday feast complete.
It even will be kosher, the company making it says -- including the ham.
Jones Soda Co., the Seattle-based purveyor of offbeat fizzy water, is selling holiday-themed limited-edition packs of flavored sodas.
The Christmas pack will feature such flavors as Sugar Plum, Christmas Tree, Egg Nog and Christmas Ham. The Hanukkah pack will have Jelly Doughnut, Apple Sauce, Chocolate Coins and Latkes sodas.
"As always, both packs are kosher and contain zero caffeine," Jones said in a statement.
The packs will go on sale Sunday, with a portion of the proceeds to be given to charity, the company said.
Jones' products feature original label art and frequently odd flavors. Last year's seasonal pack was Thanksgiving-themed, with Green Pea, Sweet Potato, Dinner Roll, Turkey and Gravy, and Antacid sodas.

For its contract to supply soda to Qwest Field, home of the Seattle Seahawks, Jones came up with Perspiration, Dirt, Sports Cream and Natural Field Turf. The company -- fortunately or unfortunately -- prides itself on the accuracy of the taste.
