Continuing the Jarritos reviews, we now have Jarritos Mango to experience. When I think of this exquisite fruit all that floods my mind are these scholarly words. "Can you know the mighty ocean? Can you lasso a star from the sky? Can you say to a rainbow... 'Hey, stop being a rainbow for a second'? No! Such is Mango!" While I’m not sure if the intellectual that spoke those words is absolutely right with their description of mango, it does indeed have a very unique flavor. I’m excited; you’re excited, let’s drink.
What a great aroma this Jarritos Mango produces. Since I somewhat know what I’m to expect here, this exceeds what I did expect. It’s a very rich and robust mango scent that emits from the top of the bottle. Enough of the chit chat; let us partake in my first mango soda.
CURSE YOU NOSE! My nose always seems to be the hype engine when it comes to soda. Recently the smell seems to be stronger than the taste in the sodas I’ve reviewed. With that said, this is still a very nice soda. You definitely get a punch of mango to the back of the throat almost instantly. The mango flavor is easily identified, and the aftertaste is delightful as well. This has more of a soda mouth feel than what I thought it would, strong, tart, and to the point. To improve this though I think I would make it a little bit creamier of a soda. I want less punch to the throat and more ‘sitting on a beach’ relaxation. Mango soda should be smooth in my opinion, and a bit more flavorful than what Jarritos has done here. This, of course, is my opinion. If you’re a fan of the mango, or even if you’re not, you should still try this soda.
Verdict – Buy a Bottle!
