Jones' D&D-themed soda: Insert nerd pun here

A real Potion of Healing is now available.

These nerdy sodas sell for $10.99 plus shipping for a variety 6-pack, and $18.99 plus shipping for a variety 12-pack. Jones Soda Co.

I love soda, but I don't drink it much because I'm not into high-fructose corn syrup. I love Dungeons and Dragons , but I don't play it much because I'm a grown-up with a real job. But I'm excited about a new D&D-themed collection of sodas by Seattle's own Jones Soda Co., which lets consumers personalize sodas with flavors, photos, and messages.

You see, I've always wanted to try an actual Potion of Healing. And now Jones has an array of "Spellcasting Soda," which includes the aforementioned Potion of Healing, Dwarven Draught, and Illithid Brain Juice, among others. I want to try them all.

And I can, because Jones uses real sugar and not that icky HFCS stuff that the big guys use. I find myself wondering how the Sneak Attack flavor mixes with rum.

I'm going to find out. I contacted Jones and a representative told me that due to exploding popularity, the limited-edition sodas are on back-order for a couple of weeks. But when the sodas are back, Jones is going to meet up with yours truly. I'm going to go through every flavor and review them right here on Crave. This should be tasty, carbonated fun.
