Inaugural food: Obama pop
Ever alert reader Retired in Elkridge brought this fine Inaugural product to my attention:
Elizabeth, I was at Giant Food yesterday and picked up a 4-pack of Jones Soda in a new "Orange 'You Glad For Change' Cola." Complete with a picture of our incoming President. Label says "At Jones Soda our motto has always been 'Run with the little guy ... Create some change.' Well, you chose change and Orange you glad that you did." Also a boxed statement "Barack Obana does not endorse Jones Soda and Jones Soda isn't affiliated with the President Elect." Makes an interesting souvenir. Haven't tried it yet 'cause it isn't diet and has 40 grams of sugar per 12-oz bottle. Picture enclosed.
I'm very fond of Jones Soda because they make a black cherry flavor, a favorite flavor of my youth. I never thought to look for it in the supermarket; I just drink it occasionally for nostalgia's sake when I eat lunch at Sascha's 527.
