I'm not much of a soda drinker, mostly iced tea or limeade but I discovered in my local market mexican soda called Jarritos. The flavor i like is lime which is said to be "naturally flavored." Jarritos is a very popular brand of soft drink in Mexico. Jarritos was started by Don Francisco "El Güero" Hill in 1950. Jarritos is made in fruit flavors and is less carbonated than soft drinks made in the United States or Canada. Many Jarritos flavors are naturally flavored. The word jarrito means "little jug" in Spanish and refers to the Mexican tradition of drinking water and other drinks in clay pottery jugs. In 1989, the first importation of Jarritos to retail stores in the U.S. began; by 1997, Jarritos became the most popular soft drink in the U.S. among Latino consumers.

@dyslexia,
Never had one, dys, but I have an occasional root beer and did have some wine for my birthday. Mandarina looks good. Love mandarin oranges.

Dys - when you said you had a case of 'jarritos', I was about to send you a prescription for anti-biotics and a cream to clear up the rash.

BTW:
Fruit Punch (tutifruti)
Grapefruit (toronja)
Guava (guayaba)
Roselle (jamaica)
Lime (limón)
Mandarin (mandarina)
Pineapple (piña)
Strawberry (fresa)
Tamarind (tamarindo)
Mango (mango)
Watermelon (sandía)


Has anyone actually drunk Tamarind-flavoured anything?

ohhh yessss

somewhere there's a post about my first tamarind cocktail

<sigh>

That resto had the best tamarind-accented food and drink. I can hardly wait to try his new place out.

Cool, in the US they have the old style bottles of Jarritos.
Here we have the dumb slender style bottles... and cans. Jarritos in a can is soooo un-Mexican.

Spanish lesson, a jingle of my childhood:

Jarritos, ¡Qué buenos son!
Eso nadie lo discute.
De tamarindo, limón,
mandarina y tutti-frutti.

(the discute/tutti-frutti rhyme had to come from an absolute genius)

OK, you've got Jarritos.
Do you have Pato Pascual?

You've made feel sorry for my son, who lives in the UK. He must be missing it so much.

When he comes to Mexico, first thing, we go eat shepperd style tacos with a delicious jar of natural tamarind flavored water.

you might want to correct Wiki, Fbaezer - but these sound great to me. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al_pastor

OK - I will try a tamarind drink! The suburb I live in has a very large population of Indian migrants - they have their own collection of favourite drinks. One is of the type you mention. It had better be good....

@fbaezer,
Given the South-Asian influences on restos in the U.K., I suspect your son has access to many tamarind-accented foods and beverages. It's a staple ingredient.

"Yes, I like Pina Jarritos. And getting caught in the rain
I'm not much into health food, I am into champagne.
I've got to meet you by tomorrow noon, and cut through all this red tape.
At a bar called O'Malley's, where we'll plan our escape."
