Review and giveaway: Personalized Jones Sodas!-CLOSED

Congrats to my winner,  Attila & Tamara
 
For those of you who are not familiar with Jones Soda, I should give you a little background. Jones Soda is a soda company located here in Seattle, and it is known well around here for a couple of things in addition to their yummy soft drinks.  The first thing that they are known for is their quirky labels which feature photos from real people.  For example, this is a label on a soda that you can buy in the stores:



Jones Sodas are great even before you drink them- how could you walk past a display of sodas with photos like that and not smile?  The other thing Jones Soda is known for is its unusual limited edition holiday soda collections. Who else would think to make turkey and gravy flavored soda?  Right now you can buy the Halloween Jones Sodas in stores, featuring the flavors Lemon Drop Dead, Spooookiwi, Candy Corn, and Buried Pomegranate.  Yum!  Jones Sodas are made with cane sugar rather than high fructose corn syrup and are available in a variety of flavors. They also make sugar free sodas.You can shop online- or use this handy tool to find what stores near  you carry Jones Sodas.

I was contacted by the Jones Sodas people to see if I would be interested in reviewing one of their special products- the MyJones sodas. I sent them a photo (of my kids, of course) and in a few weeks I got a 6-pack of sodas delivered to my door. And not only was the soda great, I had these adorable faces to look at!


Isn't that just too cute? I'm going to pass on some of these sodas to my parents for them to display and plan to send one to work with my husband for his desk. What a great conversation starter that will be!

These personalized sodas would make a great holiday gift- it's something different that can't help but make your loved ones smile. Maybe you have a great picture of an old family home or a beloved pet or a picture of a family reunion from this summer? Or maybe the grandparents just can't fit one more framed picture of the grandkids on their walls- this is a great alternative!

The personalized sodas are available at myjones.com in either a 6-pack (16.99 plus shipping) or a 12-pack (29.99 plus shipping). Orders will take about 2-3 weeks to reach you, so if you're shopping for the holidays, start planning now!

One of you is going to get to win a personalized 6-pack of soda!  US mailing addresses only.

To enter (mandatory entry, please be sure your email address is visible in your profile or include it in the comment):
What picture will you use and who will this gift be for?

Extra entries (please leave a separate comment for each):
1) Follow my blog
2) Put my button on your blog (let me know where to find it)
3) (3 extra entries, please leave 3 separate comments) Blog about this giveaway!
4) What's your favorite Jones Soda flavor? If you haven't had it before, what flavor looks best to you?

Giveaway is going to end in just a couple of weeks- I want you to be able to get your order in and receive it before the holidays!  So please enter by 9 PM on November 6, 2009. I'll choose a winner with random.org and will email the winner. The winner will have 48 hours to respond. Good luck!

Disclaimer: I was sent a personalized 6-pack of soda so that I could write a review. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions presented here are mine and mine alone.
