Topo Chico, Mexican mineral water: Help me find it in stores

  • 6

Topo Chico is a super refreshing carbonated mineral water from Mexico.

When I lived in Texas, I'd be at the grocery store and I started noticing that just about everyone had a case or 3 in their cart. I figured it had to be pretty good, so I bought one too. I quickly I became one of those people loading up my cart with this refreshing drink.

It comes in glass bottles with a yellow label. It's best enjoyed straight from the frosty dripping cold bottle, but can also make a great drink with a bit of gin, lime, and clapped cilantro. The rows of bottles in front of your recycling bin are an indicator of your vigor, style, and class.

It has the ability to make a 106° day seem tolerable, to make a sunburn feel less painful, and I do believe it could bring civility to Congress, if only I could find it in the DC metro area.

Any leads? I've found it on wholesale websites, and a case of 24 comes to $45 with shipping. Jaritos makes a mineral water, but it's not the same.

Thanks!

  1. Try any of the Bestway, El Eden, or Grand Marts in the Northern Virginia area (in that order) - I haven't actually seen it, but if it is available, those stores will carry it.

      G Mart definitely carries it, along with some of the finer bodegas.

        Thanks! I'll admit I generally don't shop at wallmarts, but I am going to make an exception for this.

          We split a question asking about where to find this water in LA over to our LA board: http://www.chow.com/topics/864651

        2. "Shoppers" Falls Church near Seven Corners. its hidden near the Brazilian soda which is in plastic bottles. Sometimes the grand mart right down the street has it when either one sells out.
