Hokey Halloween Horror: Jones' "Night of Red Licorice" Soda
First, let me say just how much I like the cans. This one features a pretty cool representation of Frankenstein's Monster against a red background. He's got lots of stitches, scars, and even bolts protruding from the sides of his neck. I think these might be exclusive to Target. That's where I bought them (actually Mom-ecue17 and Dad-ecue17 bought these for me- I went and bought some other flavors myself). They come in a four pack and are held together by one of those clear plastic can holders that Captain Planet always told you to cut apart so that birds and fish don't get stuck in them. I know I still always do.

So, let's take a look at the soda. It's really nice and red, not unlike a standard cherry soda or something like Faygo Red Pop.
Here's the initial taste opinions of our reviewers:
*Arathaelia thought it not only looked like Red Pop but that it tasted like it as well, although it was less carbonated. I think she used the word flat.
*Bride of Chucky initially said that the soda smelled like cough medicine. She didn't seem real pleased with it either and said she could taste a licorice like taste that she didn't like. She eats a lot of Twizzlers, but didn't like this soda.
*I honestly don't even remember what Generbeener said. I seem to feel like she probably made a face, but that's as much as I recall.
Now me? I really like this stuff. First of all, I'm a big fan of black licorice but I also like red licorice and this stuff tastes quite a bit like red licorice. Not Twizzlers per say, more like Red Vines. It's sweet, but there's something just a bit tangy to it as well. It's got a ......red flavor. Not cherry, or strawberry, but red. Does that make sense? Anyways, it's sweet, then a little sour with a distinctively red taste. See, now you know exactly what you're getting into!
