Poutine Soda… WTF, eh?
Soooo… yes. We Canadians are an enigmatic bunch. With our hot chicks, great craft beer, hockey, comedians, pizza burgers, and more lakes than the rest of the world COMBINED, we have a lot to be proud of. This, however, is not one I’m not yet prepared to fully back.
Jones Soda has recently release Poutine soda. That’s right, eh. Poutine soda. Liquid french fries, cheese curds, and gravy. I’m sure many of my French Canadian friends are “Tabernac”-ing all over the place.
It seems as if everyone is trying to push the boundaries of food, twisting classic and amazing recipes or techniques into a phantasmagorical nightmare of processed edible shock factor. I am reaching out to the world. Stop the madness!
Jones Soda makes REALLY good soda pop. They do! But this… scares me. They describe the limited edition Poutine soda as:
“a nice balance of rich, savory gravy over a starchy potato base, and accented with those fatty, cheesy notes you expect in a plate of poutine.”
I have not tried this yet, so perhaps it is the best thing since Champagne, but I think I’ll be sticking to the solid form.
