Aaron has been telling me about a new Spiced Holiday Pepsi they have at Wegmans, and promised to bring me home a bottle tonight. Spiced Pepsi is Pepsi flavored with cinnamon and ginger. I noticed their website has a "Recipes" section soon to come... what could that be?

I did Bake an Easter ham once in Coca Cola. What I really think will be there is a recipe for wassail. I think back to when Aaron and I first met... at the restaurant we both worked at... nearly 10 years ago. Our boss promised a holiday party in our banquet hall that they would have wassail. I was pretty excited... thinking of the song "A Wassailing We Go" and how delicious and refreshing that sounded. Imagine my dismay when my bosses version of wassail was warm Dr. Pepper with orange slices floating in it. Sounds a lot like spiced pepsi eh?

If that is not enough for you, this morning on the news I heard Jones Soda is making Thanksgiving sodas.... Turkey & Gravy Soda, Cranberry Soda, Mashed Potato & Butter, Green Bean Casserole and Fruitcake Soda. Ehhhh....

(note: I just saw that notMartha posted the-exact-same-thing-as-I-did! Well rather about the exact same two things. Today! Frrrreaky)


  1. I just saw the new Spiced Holiday Pepsi today while wandering the aisles at Target. Let us know how it tastes! I am imagining that it's like a cinnamony Dr. Pepper...

  2. I heard about The Jones New York sodas this morning on the news as well. Eeek.

  3. Believe it or not - they were even talking about the Jones Soda on the radio in the UK today!

    How bizarre.

  4. I was gonna say I had the oddest sense of deja vu when reading yr blog entry - I read not Martha too! :-)

    Think I'll stick w/ my regular flavor Coke.

  5. Green bean casserole flavored soda?

    that is So. Very. Wrong.

    Does it actually taste like green beans? ljc, I DARE you to buy this soda, try it, and report on the flavor.

  6. Another strange coincidence: Toni came home last night with Limited Edition Holiday Spice Pepsi-Cola. You must be telepathically sending your blog to people. I tried it and I think it's not bad. It has the spiced apple cider taste, but it's subtle, not too overbearing.


  7. i remember hearing last year that jones soda sold out of their turkey & gravy stuff because it was so popular. i vaguely remember something about lots of bottles being sold via ebay. it doesn't sound like something i'd enjoy, though.

  8. Did you look at the Jones Soda Green Bean Casserole bottle? Oddly enough, the picture is a pug wearing a Santa hat. LJC is right - they're everywhere :)

  9. I really like the spiced Pepsi. It would probably be good to cook a ham in. I think I have a good recipe I used last year that involved my crock pot. But the Jones stuff? I don't have that kind of money for the novelty. It's like $15.00 for the set isn't it?
