Magic Potions for Sale: Jones Soda is Offering "Dungeons and Dragons Spellcasting Soda"

For many this will be old news, as it has already worked its way around the geekernet Wil Wheaton and Felicia Day have already tweeted about it), but I think it is still pretty cool news. I first read the story on the excellent Nerdvana blog on the East Valley Tribune website. I have no idea why an eastern Phoenix newspaper is the home to this excellent blog, but maybe it has something to do with Flying Buffaloes.

To make a long story short, Jones Soda is offering a new limited edition 6-pack of sodas under the brand name Dungeons and Dragons Spellcasting Soda.

Each pack comes with six Dungeons and Dragons themed flavors, though not all the names are exactly "spellcasting" related. The flavors are:

  • Dwarven Draught
  • Healing Potion -- the one diet beverage
  • Sneak Attack
  • Bigby's Crushing Thirst Destroyer
  • Eldritch Blast
  • Illithid Brain Juice

  • The names of the flavors is pretty hit or miss. I could have done without "Sneak Attack" or "Eldritch Blast," but that is more than made up for by the 1st edition referencing "Bigby's Crushing Thirst Destroyer." Given that Bigby was famous for his hand/fist related spells, it is a little bizarre imagining drinking this soda being the equivalent of swallowing a liquid fist -- but that's beside the point.

    I'll be ordering a couple of packs today and hoping that "Illithid Brain Juice" is a cool as it sounds.
