One of the basic rules of being kosher is that it excludes all products that have anything to do with pigs. Pork, Ham all of it. Being kosher means no pig. Period. Well, sooner or later you know someone would come up with kosher ham. It was inevitable.
In truth this is My Bad! I saw this quite awhile ago, but somehow it slipped out of my radar. You have to hand it to the Jones Soda Company, you really do. Not only do they have their interesting and sometimes real quirky sodas, but they also manage to keep kosher certification from Star-K. This time they really went all out and produced special holiday packs of soda. One for Hanukkah and one for Christmas.
The Christmas pack is of course kosher. And what makes it even better, is that one of the flavors in the pack is "Christmas Ham" - certified kosher by Star-K. (You can download the PDF kosher certification as well.) This is not a joke. It is GREAT! Ingenious actually. Kosher Ham Soda. What will they think of next! So go get both packs! Here are the flavors. Just for the taste-buds.
- Chocolate Coins
- Apple Sauce
- Jelly Donut
- Sugar Plum
- Egg Nog
- Christmas Tree
- Christmas Ham
Worth the price of purchase even if you don't ever drink it. Just for the bottle and label!
