Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and KISS co-founder Gene Simmons is coming to CNY  to promote his new gourmet soda line.

Gene Simmons will be at Tops Friendly Markets, 350 Towne Drive in Fayetteville this Friday, Sept. 21, at 12 noon. You can meet Simmons on a first-come-first-serve basis and try his new drink called MoneyBag Sodas. Snag an autographed (and maybe a picture like he took with Cindy 30 years ago!! LOL) four-pack by making a $20.00 donation to Honor Flight of Syracuse.

Syracuse.com reports MoneyBag Sodas are produced by Niagara Falls-based Rock Steady Sodas, a subsidiary of Johnnie Ryan Bottling Company. The Gene Simmons MoneyBag Soda FB page says

Gene Simmons MoneyBag Soda! Made with pure cane sugar and all natural flavorings and colorings! It’s soda royalty!

Soda flavors are cola, diet cola, root beer, and ginger ale flavors, with more varieties in the works. MoneyBag Sodas will be available in 7-Eleven stores, Wegmans, Tops Friendly Markets and Rocket Fizz Soda Pop and Candy Shop this fall before launching nationally.

Simmons is also on tour celebrating the 50th anniversary of KISS. Catch him Friday night Sept. 21, at Turning Stone with the Gene Simmons Band at 8 p.m.
