    Mango Jarritos is the second best soda in existence.

    Whats the first?

    I have never seen Mango around here... dayum I love mango...

    I don't know who makes it, but in the same section there is some Apple Soda (the label says "Sidral Mundet"), which is also amazing.

    I'm just a huge huge fan of root beer in general. I joke about Surge as well, but its probably my #3

    Back on the actual subject. Hmmm... I really do like hi-chews. Also, I blame my boss for getting me hooked on them. Mitch sent me some in a box of Japanese goodies a few years back and now I can't stop eating them. I'm glad that they actually are in the US, though not in as many flavors (But they do have mango!)

    Hi Chews are awesome. I like mango... but the strawberry ones are awesome too.

    Something I've become a huge fan of are these little packaged cakes from the pilipino (filipino) store next to my house.. They have this thing called Ube (think Taro) and Pandan (It's like a buttery coconut, but it's from a plant) flavors, as well as mocha and mango.  I'm n heaven!

    There are also buttery crackers that come in a tin, there are two brands they carry... Blue Skies and Skyflakes (pretty similar I'd say).  I could spend an entire day just admiring the packaging, wondering which one to buy

    Ube and taro are similar flavors to me. I think they are different strains of a sweet potato? I love the flavor though - try some taro ice cream if you haven't!

    I had pandan for the first time last year. It was in a cake. The taste was interesting, but it made my tongue feel slightly numb and tingly. So never again!

    Tim Tams.  You can get them here in some normal shops, but it's only one or two and the few places that sell them often sell out.  My family got addicted to them when my brother came back from New Zealand and introduced us to Tim Tam Slams.  (You bite opposite corners and use the whole thing like a straw until it starts to collapse and then you eat it.  We normally do it with hot chocolate.)  We have found a few US cookies that you can do the same thing with, but it's not exactly the same.

    I like the lime Jarritos.  I prefer cane sugar in my soda in general, it annoys me that most US sodas use high fructose corn syrup.

    There are these Japanese strawberry hard candies I can get at the asian market that are very good.  I don't know their name, I just know what to buy.  They use real fruit juice to make them so they're tastier than most US hard candies.  The brand also sells other flavors but I like the strawberry.

    Because of the unique culture here it's not to hard to get a lot of foreign foods here as it might be in other places in the US, which I'm really grateful for.  I've learned over time that most of my favorite foods are not common to the US.

    I like hispanic drinks, especially horchata (a Mexican drink with milk, rice, vanilla, and cinnamon).

    I feel like I'm one of the few people out of my group of friends who actually like the bubbles in bubble tea. Everyone I know gets them without. : |

    I would love to taste it one day. Seriously. I love tea in general.

    I also love good coffee and weiss beer but that's another story.

    Bubble tea rocks! Favorite flavoring is pinaplle strawberry.

    Never heard of them. Now I am curirious. Googling it.

    Bubble tea is yummy, but I'm boring and usually get the milk tea flavor. Avacado flavor if I feel really fancy.

    Thai tea is delicious too! I wish I could make it properly at home. Any fancy drink must be for me -- the horchata comment I agree with as well.
