Drinks that encapsulate your Mexican childhood:
1. Before there was Fanta, there was the classic, colorful, and delicious taste of a bomb ass Jarritos.
2. Before there was Martinellis, there was Sidral Mundet.
3. Sangria Señoral was your first introduction to grape soda.
4. To open a can of Jumex, you had to bite on the aluminum slip on the top and slowly peel it off. If you did it right, your lower lip would get sucked into the opening.
5. Your mom bought Tampico because Sunny D was just too damn expensive.
6. Before there was a bunny drinking chocolate milk through a red and white swirly straw, there was Pancho Pantera.
7. Instant hot chocolate pales to the taste of Abuelita.
8. Aguas frescas served in a styrofoam cup will always be a throwback to Sunday outings after misa.
Snack cakes you begged your mom for at el mercadito:
9. Conchitas always came in two flavors: Chocolate and vanilla, even though they didn't taste anything like chocolate or vanilla. It just tasted awesome.
10. As a kid, who needed Twinkies when you had these?
11. But if you were craving something Twinkie-like, there was always Submarinos.
12. This box contained the very best Gamesa cookies. If you had a big family, these would be gone in seconds.
13. There is absolutely nothing like a soft and chewy Barrita. Nothing. It's one of kind.
14. Bimbuñuelos were awesome by themselves. But if you wanted to take it to the next level, you had to break them into pieces, put them in a bowl, and shower them in milk.
