Not everyone can say their face is plastered on glass bottles across the country.
Jonesin’ for a taste of fame

But Beaumont resident Sarah Heyde is entitled to that claim to fame.
Heyde recently learned that a photo she submitted of herself would appear on Jones Soda bottles across the country. It wasn’t the first time the aspiring photographer submitted a photo she had taken.
“I started trying maybe a year or two ago,” she said. “I’ve probably submitted maybe 10 different photos.”
Heyde submitted the photo of her hair in the air, one she had taken quickly while upside down. Soon after, she received a letter telling her she had made a final list of contenders to appear on the bottles.
It wasn’t long before she learned she made it, and the bottles soon started popping up across the country.
“My uncle had found one with me on it at a Starbucks in B.C., so I knew they were out there,” Heyde said.
She first looked for one at the local Mac’s with no luck. Serendipitously, she came face to face with her own face at the local Sobeys.
“It was really exciting,” she said. “I kind of thought there was a chance because of the staff pick ,but I was still really surprised (when I found out).”
According to a letter sent to Heyde from Jones Soda Co., only one per cent of submissions make it onto the bottles.
So it’s fair to say Heyde is part of the one per cent.
“It’s pretty cool,” she said.
