Jones Soda’s Love Potion #6 – Available Customized!

I want to share something pretty cool with you.  If you didn’t know already, Jones Soda, through their myJones store, will customize a case of soda for you, and if your loved one loves them some Jones, what’s better than some Love Potion #6 for Valentine’s Day?  If you’re sweating getting your honey a gift since it IS just two weeks away, check this out as an option.

I love this idea because it’s customized and it’s appropriate for either a male or female loved one – as long as their love for Jones is as strong as their love for you, that is.  Jones can be an acquired taste for some since it’s a pure cane soda – that means they don’t use things like high fructose corn syrup to sweeten it, just sugar.  I know anyone who prefers the Coca-Cola still bottled in Mexico that uses sugar over the stuff bottled here in the US will appreciate this for sure.

You can upload your own photograph and all bottles in the case will have the same photo.  You can submit either a black and white photo (which I think as a certain charm to it, given the bright color of the soda) or color.  The price isn’t too shabby either – $29.99 + shipping will get you 12 custom bottles, a Jones Soda poster, and a Love Potion #6 flavored lip balm.  Forgetting the value of the poster and the lip balm, that’s about $2.50 per bottle, which is about what you’d pay buying a single bottle from your local corner store.  Except, nowhere near as cool.

I’m diggin’ the idea, and may just pick some up a case to give a bottle or two to some friends here and there as my own valentine card.  So if a whole case seems like too much to give to one person, feel free to steal my idea and share them with friends.  This isn’t just a Valentine’s Day offer, either.  While this flavor is a limited item, they also offer LOLCats on Jones Soda for a limited time and year-round customized cases through the Jones Soda Store.  It’s a great idea that’s one of a kind, so check it out and give it a try 🙂

White Chocolate Ice Cream

Submitted by Roman
Yields 1 qt.


1 c. milk 2 large eggs
12 oz. white chocolate chips (1 bag) 1½ c. heavy cream
1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Start with a saucepan that will fit everything, & bring the milk to a simmer.  While that is heating, beat the eggs in a medium mixing bowl.  Add the hot milk very slowly to the eggs. Once it is combined very well, put the egg & milk mixture back in the pan & put it over low heat.
  2. Whisk the mixture (now a custard) until it thickens & will coat the back of a spoon & leave a trail when you run a finger over it.  Remove it from the heat & stir in the chocolate until it’s melted. 
  3. Pour the mixture through a mesh strainer into a large clean bowl.  Allow it to cool slightly, then stir in the cream & vanilla. 
  4. Cover the bowl & refrigerate until cold or overnight.  Stir the mixture one more time, then put it in your ice cream maker following the manufacturer’s directions. 
  5. Eat immediately for soft serve or freeze for at least two hours for a firmer consistency.

Chef’s Note: For a slight change up, I added roughly chopped peppermint bark candy to the ice cream maker about 5 minutes before the ice cream was done in the machine.
