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.

  • PHOTOS: Madison store helps collect hundreds of Teddy bears for police

    MADISON, Wis.--A west Madison store is part of an effort to collect hundreds of stuffed animals to donate to six police departments in Southern Wisconsin.

    Todd Merryfield, owner of The Learning Shop at 714 S. Gammon Road, said the store is collecting the bears for officers who use them to help comfort children with whom police come in contact.

    "This is a great way to support what (police) do," Merryfield said. "Those are the kids that need something like this to reassure them, calm them down, and let them know that things are all right."

    Nearly 500 plush animals were donated Tuesday, a Learning Shop spokeswoman said. The Madison store's effort is part of a larger initiative through the Bears for Humanity organization.
