When the affiliate nexus tax, commonly known as the Amazon Tax, first appeared in New York last spring much of the marketing industry was caught off guard. Since then battles have been fought in eight states over similar legislation including a veto by Governator. We will go over how such legislation impacts you (whether or not you are affiliate or an Amazon associate); how big corporations like Amazon, Overstock and Google have reacted to such legislation; discuss similar types of legislation that may have an even more detrimental impact on ecommerce; and provide resources so you can stay informed.

The Jones Soda Taste Test


If I drink anything, it’s usually either soda water or coffee (but seldom simultaneously). I decided to exceed my palate’s comfort level and venture into the world of Jones Soda this evening. Mind you, I didn’t flip for their typical cola flavors – that wouldn’t be very interesting, would it?

Turkey and Gravy, Sweet Potato, Dinner Roll, Pea, and Antacid – all sodas in the Jones Soda Holiday 2006 pack. I’m still not sure what drove me to bring such an array of carbonated dissidents home with me, but the results were… well, you’ll just have to watch the video.

Jones Soda Holiday Pack 2006 – Taste Test

Last year, someone told me that Jones Soda had released a liquid “Thanksgiving meal” of sorts. It’s a novelty food item that I knew I’d have to drink at some point. I always appreciate when a “normal” flavor is blended with a “normal” food to create a potential culinary abomination. Like wasabi ice cream, for instance – many foods are worth trying once. Sometimes twice!

This afternoon, I was given an opportunity to try the 2006 Holiday Pack. A local grocery store had ’em in stock, although the items had been officially removed from shelves yesterday. I begged and pleaded with the store manager to kindly fetch me a case. He obliged, and the rest (as they say) is history. I decided to record my reactions on video – for posterity.

Turkey and Gravy soda, Sweet Potato soda, Dinner Roll soda, Pea soda, Antacid Flavored soda – I tried ’em all. What’s the weirdest food or drink that you’ve ever ingested – willingly? I wonder if Jones Soda will make a blog flavored soda next year?
