Saturday we had a little get together with a few friends to celebrate finally getting our new wet bar installed in the basement. I thought it was the perfect opportunity to bring out the sample pack of Jarritos I had to review.
Jarritos is a popular soft drink in Mexico. It is made in fruit flavors and is less carbonated than what I think of as pop! Many Jarritos varieties are naturally flavored and made with sugar cane instead of high fructose corn syrup most soda is made with.
We conducted some what of a taste test on the following flavors:
- Lima Limon – the general consensus was this tasted similar to sprite but with that extra sugar cane punch. We gave it 4 out of 5 stars!
- Mango and Guava – both received 3 out of 5 stars. I think if you really like the flavors of Mango or Guava, they are not too bad, but none of us were fans!
- Pineapple- everyone agreed that the pineapple would be great with some Malibu Rum and we came up with a great fruity cocktail. And if you go to their website you can click on drink recipes and get some great tips on using Jarritos as mixers. 4 stars!
- Mandarin – This by far was a clear favorite! 5 stars! Everyone agreed that it tasted like an orange popsicle!
My husband and daughter both tried a couple other flavors!! We really had a lot of fun trying Jarritos. I think they are very flavorful versatile drinks. The flavor of the sugar cane is similar to the throw back sodas that have made their way back into the grocery stores. If you are looking for something other than your usual soda, give Jarritos a try!
