Topo Chico!

I love fizzy water, but it's disappointingly hard to find in stores, and then it's really expensive. I love Voss sparkling water and San Pelligrino and Ty nant, but they're all pricey if you can find them at all.


A great alternative is the Mexican sparkling water Topo Chico.

I'll just let the irony sink in for a moment. True, you go to Mexico, you're not supposed to drink the water, and here I am, drinking water bottled at the source in Mexico.


I found it online for $1.99, but it's available at a local supermarket for .75 a bottle and for .50 sometimes at Walmark. Muy delicioso at a price half or less of that of its high-falutin' counterparts.
Arriba!

I see that in the ethnic foods section in our store and have always wondered. I'll definitely try it now - I like that it comes in a glass bottle too :)

Funny!

that's because it has to be pasteurized to keep it from going funky in the bottle... only reason it is safe to drink this or Mexican cokes...

Fizzy water?

Any flavor you want. Some assembly required.

Bottles, caps, etc....

You could start your own brand!

Here in Casa G, we like us some Topo Chico a LOT. We especially like to let the hot bubbles in the iced cold agua mineral tease already over-stimulated tastebuds that are burning from too much hot pepper.

And after a hot hike, there's nothin like finding one in the back of the refrigerator, right where I hid it.
