This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Jones Soda. All opinions are 100% mine. The people at Jones Soda and I agree that Simpson’s Paradox readers are all huge nerds will find this product interesting and amusing.
Jones Soda — yes, the people who came up with turkey-flavored Thanksgiving soda — have just launched a new line of Dungeons and Dragons Jones Soda. I thought it was a joke at first, but Jones Soda’s Potion of Healing, Dwarven Draught, Sneak Attack, Eldritch Blast, and my personal favorite, Bixby’s Crushing Thirst Destroyer are all real flavors.
Which begs the question – what would a D&D soda taste like? I imagine a Sneak Attack would taste like a deceptively fruity and sweet girly drink, followed with a huge vodka kick when you try to stand up. And a Potion of Healing would taste like medicine — I’m thinking children’s Triaminic grape-flavored cough syrup.
I’m not really a soda drinker myself, preferring to take my sugar and caffeine through coffee, but I wonder if D&D soda will replace the official gaming soda, Mountain Dew, or if the limited-time sodas will be more like novelties, like the TruBlood bottles I saw at Hot Topic the other day.
And of course I have to wonder if they’ll be a second, third, third-and-a-half and forth edition of the sodas….
