My husband and I have always been avid soda drinkers.. More like soda addicts really! So I was very excited when I was contacted about reviewing a case of Jarritos Mexican soda.
About Jarritos: More than sixty years ago, Jarritos was introduced as Mexico’s first national soft drink. Today, Jarritos is the leading brand in the US in the Mexican soft drink category and has become a Mexican cultural icon. Whether it is the distinctive glass bottle or the 11 unique and great fruit flavors, Jarritos can be found throughout the US in major and independent grocery stores, Mexican restaurants, taquerias, catering trucks and convenience stores. Jarritos flavors are a reflection of Mexico in its array of traditional Mexican flavors made with 100% natural sugar including: Tamarind, Mandarin, Fruit Punch, Jamaica, Lime, Toronja, Guava, Pineapple, Strawberry, Mango, and Mexican Cola.
Jarritos Flavors:*Toronja / Grapefruit: The refreshing and tangy flavor of Grapefruit is a sweet and sour eye opener!
*Tuti Fruti / Fruit Punch: Always a crowd favorite. It’s like a flavor-fiesta in a bottle!
*Tamarindo / Tamarind: Tamarind is the number two Jarritos flavor (after Mardarin) and delicious ice-cold with any Mexican food.
*Piña / Pineapple: Puts you in a tropical state of mind.
*Mango / Mango: The delicious taste of mango makes you want to tango!
*Mandarina / Mandarin: Nobody makes an orange soda quite like Jarritos Mandarin with 100% natural mandarin orange flavor!
*Limón / Lime: Electric, lively, citrusy and sweet with 100% natural lime flavor.
*Jamaica / Hibiscus: An exotic soft drink with 100% real hibiscus flavor. **Discontinued**
*Guayaba / Guava: A liquid tropical vacation ready to drink! **Discontinued**
*Fresa / Strawberry: A favorite on Valentine’s Day… or any day!
*Lima- Limón / Lemon-Lime: A tasty citrus treat waiting to quench any thirst!
I've actually been trying to cut back on soda as part of a diet routine I started a few weeks ago so I only tried a couple of the Jarritos sodas we received. But my husband was more than happy to step in and try them all out! He really liked them, especially the mango and strawberry. My favorite was definitely the fruit punch.
Because Jarritos sodas are made with 100% natural sugars they don't taste syrupy like traditional sodas. They're sweeter and you can actually taste the flavors which is a big plus! The sleek bottle and pretty colors definitely add a nice element to the sodas as well!
One complaint I do have is that they no longer carry the Jamaica flavor which is the one I was most excited about trying.. But other than that I would definitely recommend Jarritos Mexican sodas!! Check out their store locator to see if you can purchase Jarritos in a store near you!
