Jones Soda is Still Sweet

As of January 1, 2007, Jones Soda (the Seattle based soda maker) will be selling 12-ounce canned sodas with pure cane sugar rather than high fructose corn syrup. All their products, which include root beer and cream sodas, will be switched over by mid-2007. This comes after highly processed table sugars and high fructose corn syrups are getting a bad rep due to their complete lack in nutrional value and very high calorie count.

High fructose corn syrup, especially, has a bad rep as it can increase Type 2 diabetes and other epidemic diseases caused by obesity since the body has difficulty processing high fructose corn syrup at high levels.

I can't wait to try the Watermelon Soda with pure cane sugar! Yum.

Oooh exciting! I only get to drink Jones soda when I go to Panera, but I rarely go to Panera, so I rarely drink Jones. It's good in a sense. ~M~

Have you seen the holiday meal line that Jones Soda puts out, with flavors like Turkey and Gravy soda, Sweet Potato Soda, Dinner Roll Soda and Pea Soda, and Antacid Flavored Soda! I'm betting that no matter what kind of natural, processed, or chemically enhanced sweetener you use, those would all be gross.

I love Coke made in Mexico because it is made with SUGAR and tastes so much better. I will definitely try out the Jones soda

Ooh, that's wonderful! There's the Dr.Pepper Museum near here, and you can get Dr.Pepper made with sugar there instead of High Fructose Corn Syrup, too.
