Made with pure cane sugar and featuring the most unique packaging in the beverage industry, Jones Soda is a one of a kind premium soda known for its bold, unique flavors, colors, and ever changing labels submitted by our consumers.
Created in Vancouver, BC in 1995 from the vision of Jones Soda founder, Peter van Stolk, and photographer/designer Victor John Penner, Jones was launched with the idea of incorporating random photographs onto our bottles using shots taken by Penner. But when consumers began submitting their own photos, we quickly realized that user sourced participation made the brand even more special.
Our flavor lineup includes traditional favorites like Cola, Root Beer, Cream Soda & Orange & Cream, but we also offer tasty, unique options such as Blue Bubblegum, Green Apple, Strawberry Lime and Fufu Berry. Limited Edition offerings will continue to make appearances in the Jones lineup, but don't hold your breath for anything gross or weird. We're committed to only creating flavors we think are downright! (Jones Soda is a treat after all!)
The Jones portfolio includes Jones Pure Cane Soda, Jones Sugar Free, Jones Cane Sugar fountain products, Spiked Jones (a hard cider soda created just for our 21+ fans!) and our sister brand Lemoncocco - a non-carbonated beverage inspired by the icon beverage stands in Rome, Italy.
And our caps! Our fans love the quotes they find under Jones Soda caps, which offer pearls of wisdom, advice, or simple daily pick me ups. Collected and shared through social media, our caps have become nearly as synonymous with our brand as our photos, and are part of what makes us who we are. And just in case you weren’t already aware, our caps can also be collected and sent back to Jones to redeem some pretty cool prizes.
People always ask where they can find Jones in their neighborhoods. Depending on where you live, that may or may not be an easy question to answer. We are working hard to ensure Jones can be found in as many traditional and nontraditional retailers as possible. For those who have trouble trying to find us, we also offer our products for sale through our website, where our business continues to grow! As with most things in life, the squeaky wheel gets the grease! If you want to see Jones Soda or any of our other products carried in a retail location, politely ask the resident beverage manager to carry that product for you. Without valuable feedback from customers like you, a beverage manager might not know they're missing out!
