    I have to say

    that it is nice to see some insider buying. Also I went to my local Target and bought three of the four flavors available. It is amazing to me that that the Jones people can get the exquisite tastes that they achieve. Candy corn,red licorice, and caramel apple actually taste like their names. Now if I could only find an outlet for the Jones black cherry I would be a happy camper. If any reader knows of an outlet in south Florida I would appreciate the info.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

      insider buying

      the flavors are by 3rd party manufactures not by jones.. everything is by 3rd party manufactures ,thats why jones margins s_ck , and why they have a hard time increasing margins.

      try dollar stores for black

      • interesting you continue to rip this. As an ex-employee I feel sorry for you. Hopefully someday you will get some help, and be able to move on. Jones Soda works with and develops both bottling and distribution through secondary markets. By developing a long term relationship with a bottler/distributor in Detroit Michigan, they are able to bottle and distribute through that individual company, thus saving money by doing both through one company. Your narrowly focused thinking is extremely detrimental, with the focus being on mental. As this company continues to turnaround, and grow, you will get left behind with nothing more than hard feelings and a lot of hot air. Anyone wanting to invest in a good solid company will see Jones soda as an improving company with extremely good ideas, and yes growth. The losses in the last year have all been in non-strategic markets which have been dis-continued. All of the losses over the last 3 quarters will now be gone, and now we will see positive growth going forward. By placing Halloween cans in Shnucks, Target, World Market, and yes other stores, Jones Soda will see increased revenue by just one product, and one gimmick: Halloween Cans. They did not have them last year, and the year before that, Messier was trying to find is halloweenie with 2 hands and a flashlight. Jennifer Cue is not focused on whoopass, or any other gimmickie items. Product placement in core markets, with good distribution, will lead to increased sales, and yes; increased revenues. I'd like to wish you luck with your negative postings.

      • will do--thanks for the idea
