Soda Review: Jarritos Jamaica

Jarrito’s Jamaica SodaNestled in the Hispanic foods section, my local Safeway stocks a tasty little display of Mexican bottled sodas made by a company called Jarritos. As soon as I spotted these popular drinks sitting there with their rainbow colors, I knew I had to try a couple. Already familiar with the Mexican preference for hyper-sweet everything, I knew that the strawberry variety would be delicious and I wasn’t let down. For my second bottle, I decided to go more exotic and try the jamaica flavor. How can you resist a soda named after a country? This jamaica, it turns out, is an indigenous Mexican plant. The soda derives its flavor from a hibiscus-like flower known elsewhere as Roselle. Right away I was attracted to the pleasing cranberry red of this soda. Flavor-wise, what it most tastes like is — wait for it — prune juice, with a little bit of a tea-like earthiness. The sweetness of pure cane sugar overwhelms the flavor a bit, leaving a lingering aftertaste. Overall, I actually enjoyed it. As an occasional sweet treat, this soda was muy bueno in my book.

    One nice thing about moving to Los Angeles is the wide availability of Jarritos sodas. I really love the neon green Jarritos Limon (lime). They also make a tamarind soda that is an interesting change of pace.

  2. Now I’m gonna try out the Limon and Tamarind. Thanks, Terry!

  3. Tastes more like tamarind to me – yum!
