Jarritos Mexican soda

 I am sure many of you may have already tried these but I had never gotten around to it until this morning. I usually see them in the small plastic bottles but ran across 1.5 litre bottles and picked up a Mandarin flavor to try. I must admit the first sip seemed very light in flavor until I took a second, big sip and the flavor was really good. I read the ingredients and was very happy to see it said sugar, no corn syrup at all. The other flavors I saw were pineapple and tamarind. I may have to try the pineapple next.

On a side note, a co-worker told my wife a couple of weeks ago that Pepsi was going back to 100% sugar as a result of "supposed" tests showing bad long term problems using corn syrup... who knows about that one.

    I enjoy the grapefruit flavor the most. 

    I like the apple flavor, but I really have to be in the mood for it.  It is very mild.

    Hey... I had forgotten all about the apple flavor. I remember trying it one time and it was very mild as you mentioned.

     Not true. Skip down a few posts and find the one about Pepsi Throwback. That will explain.

    Jarritos is one of the few sodas I will indulge in because it is made with sugar.The taste, to me, is so much more refreshing than those made with corn syrup.( I have only had the fruit punch, thusfar) I also noticed Jarritos doesnt go flat quickly...

    I like the lime one, we bought a bottle recently, the cap was off it for about 6 or so hours and it still was nice and fizzy.  With it being made with sugar too there's no horrible aftertaste.

    I believe it's made with cane sugar, which gives it it's distinctive flavor.

    The Mandarin mixes very well with Vodka. You can also make a great drink with Tequila and the Lime one and add 1/2 of a small Mexican Lime squeezed into it. Served both over crushed ice...Russ

    ...what is a Mexican lime?

     
    The smaller round thin skinned ones. Similar to a Key Lime only lighter in color (sometimes with a touch of yellow) and larger. They are also by far the best limes for Bloody Mary's...Russ

    I sold Jarrito's at my hot dog cart for years. Mandarina, tamarindo, and pina were my three best selling flavors, in that particular order. The glass bottle is the e-ticket over the plastic.

    Definitely like the mandarina/tangerine flavor...picked up a single-serving bottle yesterday at Wally World.

    Instead of Squirt, you can use Jarritos Toronja (grapefruit) to make a paloma or an canerilla(sic).  Better than a margarita IMHO.
