Poutine soda

Poutine, the greasy Canadian delicacy of french fries, gravy and cheese curds, is now available in soda form.

Jones Soda Co., already known for its unusual concoctions like turkey and gravy and green bean casserole soda, debuted its latest creation this week for release in Ontario, British Columbia and Quebec.

They describe it as a "balance of rich, savory gravy over a starchy potato base, and accented with those fatty, cheesy notes you expect in a plate of poutine."

Facebook fans and critics have responded in droves, with many calling the flavor gross and others saying they can't wait to try it.

Judging from a few early reviews on Twitter, those eager to try the drink may want to hold off.
