Dungeons and Dragons: The Soda

| 17 Sep 2009 00:01

Not content to allow World of Warcraft and Halo corner the market on gaming-themed carbonated beverages, RPG grandaddy Dungeons and Dragons now has its very own line of sodas.

These newfangled videogame franchises and their multi-tiered merchandising campaigns. Action figures, movies, commercials, snack foods. Back in the day, all you needed was a group of friends, some pen and paper and a whole lot of imagination and well, dammit, you were having the time of your life. Gaming-themed sodas? Who needs that? Well, actually, wait, that doesn't sound so bad.

Following in the line of great videogame beverages like World of Warcraft Game Fuel and Gears of War Immulsion Liquid, Dungeons and Dragons now has its very own line of sodas. This isn't just some chemical-infused elixir that'll turn your teeth orange and give you hallucinogenic visions, though. Nope, from Bigby's Crushing Thirst Destroyer to the Potion of Healing, all flavors of the Dungeons and Dragons Spellcasting Soda are flavored with pure cane sugar, which means if the advertising's not lying, it'll taste better than your run-of-the-mill corn-syrup concoction does.

Other flavors include Sneak Attack, Dwarven Draught and Eldritch Blast. Jones is known for coming up with all sorts of wacky flavors for their drinks, so I'd imagine these are all some pretty out-there taste experiences. Maybe we'll do another soda review and let you guys know if these are any good, but in the mean time, if you're looking for a drink for your next DND gathering, I can't think of anything better.

Dungeons and Dragons Spellcasting Soda ships in six-packs for $10.99 and 12-packs for $18.99. Bonus: it comes with a Drow Assassin figurine, too! When was the last time you heard of soda coming with a toy?

I'm not really certain whether I should classify this as awesome or just a stupid idea.

I'd probably buy some if I could find some though...

Hm...
Potion of Healing, that sets the standard for LARPers.
Sneak Attack, I like because I like playing as a rogue.
Bigby's Crushing Thirst Destroyer, I hope it works.
Dwarven Draught, I can't relate to dwarves so...SKIP! (didn't play a dwarf character yet)
Eldrich Blast, if somebody thows it and hits me, do I take 1d10 damage?
Ithillid Brain Juice, eh...I don't like Ithillids, nor their brains. But some questions need to be answered, right?

AND, a drow assassin figure!? I'm very tempted now.

Trendkill6:
Am I a horrible person for considering buying this?

No. Because I'm thinking the exact same thing.

I believe it's one of the Berry flavors of Jones that tastes EXACTLY like a fizzy pixie stick...

This doesn't seem tacky like the other ones.
A bottle, a label, some artwork and something to drink.
I like it.

I actually like Jones Soda and it's usually the pop we have in my household. I am also a D&D fanboy. So I will probably be hording these malitia style.

(I can't imagine what a sneak attack tastes like)

Will this give me a bonus to my saving throws or Quench my thirst? If not, I might have to make an Expeditious Retreat.

Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Knowing how excellent Jones Soda is, this could actually be quite delicious. And the ad's certainly not lying; their (bottled) cream soda practically kicks me in the head compared to the other brands. But it is expensive.

Bonus: it comes with a Drow Assassin figurine, too! When was the last time you heard of soda coming with a toy?

STOP TEMPTING ME!

Dwarven Draught and Bigby's Crushing Thirst Destroyer for me.

Sound good.

Too bad probably will never come to Poland.

I love Jones soda. They are the best soft drinks you can get here. If any of these taste as nice as the Cream Soda or Bubblegum then I would definitely buy them.

dalek sec:
This seems like the only kind of video game themed soda's that doesn't seem stupid.

I did want the Final Fantasy Potion that was released in Japan. I thought that was also cool.

WOW! Made with real sugar! Just like all soft drinks here in the UK. That's why we have better Coke than America.

A shop I lived near used to import American drinks such as Mountain Dew (I love Mountain Dew). I found it funny that the ingredients said "Cane sugar or glucose syrup". You'd never get away with that in the EU, because the list has to be 100% accurate all the time.

those sound rather interesting, i hope for a chance to try the potion of healing

I don't want to order it, but I want to try some. So I might order it, but I would definitively buy it if I saw it in the store.

And I do wish they'd stop with the corn syrup crap here in the states. Cane sugar is so much better, it's not even funny.

I don't really see how "Sneak Attack" fits as a Spellcasting Soda. But appart from that, this whole concept of labeling a soft drink with a video game theme is not something that appeals to me.

The other ways around however...

Roll for initiative.

Random joke out of the way, It's not anymore as gimmicky as when they printed EarthBound fanart on it. Pretty cool that was too. Shame I don't live anywhere near where they sell these.

There are a few seas between me and Jones Soda.
