    Jones At Qwest Field

    I attended the Seattle Sounders soccer game at Qwest Field last night and did my Jones DD. Beautiful evening in Seattle, temp. low 80s, big crowd going to the baseball game next door and a good sized crowd going to watch soccer. No Jones advertising visible as we were going in. Once we were in you could see the Jones sign front and center on the north end of the field(see photo). The sign is not fixed, meaning it flips. Jones for 30 seconds then Regence for 30 seconds, repeat.

    There was only one concession stand open. The manager I spoke with said that's what they do for soccer games as it's a small crowd. The Jones 20oz plastic bottles are displayed on top of the stainless steel fountain dispensers(see photo). Jones water, diet black cherry, berry lemonade, green apple, lemon lime, diet cola and cola were available for $4 each. All of the soda bottles have Seahawks photos on them. 20 oz plastic bottles only, no fountain. I got in line and ordered a lemon lime and cola. My buddy ordered a diet cola. I asked if they would leave the caps on. NO GO! The manager overheard us and came over to tell us that it was stadium and NFL policy that no unopened bottles be sold due to them being possible projectiles. Bummer, plan B.

    Set up the bottles for their photo shoot(see photo section). First up for tasting was the sugar-free cola. Good true cola aroma and flavor. Not too sweet, Splenda based and has caffeine. Good overall, people who drink diet will like it for sure.

    Next up was the lemon lime. Pure cane sweetened and no caffeine. Nice citrus aroma. First taste very lime tasting and sweet. This soda is like a sprite/7 up product but better. I really like the lime flavor in it. Refreshing citrus taste.

    Jones natural spring water. 16.9 oz plastic bottle. metallic blue label, nothing fancy graphics wise. From the label: "Source: Coastal Mountains, Pemberton, B.C., Canada. Wet Yourself" Clean taste, it's water.

    Jones Pure Cane Cola. Sweetened with inverted cane sugar and it contains caffeine. First impression: it has a great true cola aroma. Taste, sweet with that classic cola bite. Clean cola flavor. I would say nothing like Pepsi. Best I could compare it to would be a cross of classic Coke and RC cola. But with that "old fashioned" suger sweetness. Great stuff!

    Almost everyone in the crowd drinking a Jones Soda. That was a very cool sight! After a while I made my way back to the concession area for another crack at an unopened bottle. I ordered a hot dog and a beer then when she came back with those I asked if I could get a bottle of cola to take back with me unopened. She said no as it was against policy and that "she could get in big trouble" and gave here the sad look and I guess it worked. She asked me "what flaor you want?" I told her cola, she grabbed one and said "don't show to security". I smiled, paid and said thank you very much! Cola stashed in cargo shorts, done deal. that's all I could get. I tried one more time and it was a failed effort. So, I scored one unopened bottle of cola. Sorry, as I would have loved to sent a bottle to each and every one of you. I don't know what I'll do with it. Maybe Ebay, not sure at this point.

    Well, that's the long of it. Please feel free to ask any question you might have. GLTA
