US soft drinks company Jones Soda has launched two limited-edition packs to coincide with the holiday season.

The Christmas Pack includes flavours such as Sugar Plum, Christmas Tree, Egg Nog and Christmas Ham Sodas, while the Happy Chanukah Pack includes Jelly Doughnut, Apple Sauce, Chocolate Coins and Latke Sodas.

The products in both ranges are kosher and contain no caffeine. The packs were made available through selected stores from 11 November.

As in previous years, Jones is donating a proportion of the proceeds from sales of the limited-edition packs to children's charities. This year, the two charities to receive donations will be Toys for Tots, the fourth consecutive year this organisation has been included in the programme, and Vitamin Angel Alliance, a non-profit, non-sectarian organisation created in 1994 to fight malnutrition and childhood blindness around the world. Each charity will receive a minimum donation of US$10,000.

"With the anticipation of a child at Christmas, our team here at Jones looks forward to this tradition every year," said president and CEO Peter van Stolk. "Not only do we get to make some fun holiday flavours, but we get to raise money for some great charities."
