Jersey Shore's Snooki Launches Soda and iPhone App (Video)
Who wants a Snookie soda?
What goes great with a meatball and a bun in the oven? How about a nice, cold, wild-cherry soda?
Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, our favorite self-proclaimed Jersey Shore meatball, has come a long way from dancing on bars, getting arrested, showing her privates, and looking for gorilla-juicehead love. This soon-to-be-mother (yes... we're still reeling too) is an entrepreneur.
In addition to her line of Snooki slippers, sandals, and tanning supplies, the diminutive diva has partnered with Rocket Fizz to launch her own soda.
Snooki Wild Cherry Soda is a limited-edition soft drink that comes in a hot-pink leopard-print bottle. The beverage is made with pure cane sugar and is, so far, available only at any of the two dozen or so Rocket Fizz candy and soda shops scattered throughout the West and Midwest.
There is some good news, however. If you're really into Snooki and her soda, you can open your own Rocket Fizz franchise. Wonder if the little powerhouse will buy one to open at the Jersey Shore. That boardwalk is a great location for a sweet shop, don't you think?
If you like playing games, Snooki's Bling Bling game ($1.99) has you picking up some of the Jersey Shore darling's favorite things for points -- like tanning lotion, cherry soda, and pickles... which, by the way, is probably her pregnancy diet. Watch Snooki talk about her soda... and Newt Gingrich here:
