Last night was Burrito Night at our house, so I decided to treat myself to a couple bottles of Jarritos soda at the grocery store. I'd had the Piña flavor at a restaurant a couple of times, but I hadn't tried Tamarind before. (As you can see from the photo, I also decided it had been too long since I bought beer. I limited myself to a 6-pack of Boulevard Wheat. The Fresca was for my husband.)
At 54-cents each, I wish I'd bought more different flavors of Jarritos to try. They make 10 different kinds, and I wouldn't be surprised if my local grocery store stocks them all. Mango sounds really good, as does Mandarino.
I almost never drink carbonated beverages, but Jarritos are smoother and have more subtle flavors than most American soft drinks. They're also made with real sugar instead of corn syrup, which I find to be a welcome change.
I drank the Tamarind one with dinner and it was quite tasty. I think I still prefer the pineapple, but it's nice to branch out.
Halloween Update: I broke down and bought Halloween candy and put out our light-up plastic Jack o'lantern. Total number of trick-or-treaters: 3. Now there's a big bowl of Junior Mints, Nestle Crunch bars and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups taunting me from beside the door. I should have stuck with my plan to shut off the lights and pretend I wasn't home...
