Jones Soda launches Michigan-themed series

Limited-edition Jones Sodas bottled and sold in Michigan

Jones Soda Co., Seattle, announced the launch of its Michigan-themed Jones Sodas, which are bottled and sold exclusively in Michigan.

Michigan helped the Jones Soda brand grow in its early years, and now the brand wants to show its appreciation, it says. To say thank you for the years of support, Jones Soda has partnered with Detroit-based Intrastate Distributors Inc. to bottle the Jones Soda products. The labels on this edition of Jones Soda feature more than 40 fan-submitted photos showcasing Michigan as well as logos of the Made In Detroit official clothing brand.

The limited-edition drinks are available in eight flavors — Green Apple, Berry Lemonade, Fufu Berry, Cream Soda, Root Beer, Blue Bubblegum, Strawberry Lime, and Orange & Cream — throughout Michigan, including at Vince and Joe's Gourmet Markets, Nino Salvaggio International Marketplace, Busch's Fresh Food Market, Holiday Market and Aco Hardware stores.

“From the outset of the launch of our brand in 1996 through today, Michigan has been one of our strongest markets,” said Jennifer Cue, Jones Soda’s chief executive officer, in a statement. “Our Michigan fans and distributors have always been our biggest supporters, and I have never lost sight of that. With the help of the Made In Detroit brand and Intrastate Distributors, this unique bottling and distribution of Michigan-themed Jones Soda is our way to honor and say thank you to the great state of Michigan. Thank you, Michigan!”
