BEAT THE HEAT…SPIKED OR NOT
The folks at Wetzel’s Pretzels have found the perfect way to beat the heat this summer with their refreshing Guava Mangonada.
This craveable drink is a handcrafted mango and guava slushie mixed with Tajín Fruity Chamoy Hot Sauce that is made with 100% natural chilies, lime juice, sea salt and a touch of apricot. Topped with real fruit mango puree and dashes of Tajín Clásico Seasoning, the Guava Mangonada creates an explosion of sweet, mildly spicy and tangy flavor in every sip.
“Recognized for an impressive track record of menu innovation, we use consumer trends and guest insights to drive exciting new flavors combinations, done in a Wetzel’s way,” said Wetzel’s Pretzels Chief Marketing Officer Kim Freer. “The immense popularity of Tajín and Mangonada, one of the ten fastest-growing menu items, coupled with fans’ obsession for the drink in test locations, made bringing the unbelievably delicious beverage to the masses a no-brainer.”
While Wetzel’s Pretzels is beloved for its tasty pretzels, including the pizza pretzel as well as its pretzel dog and the Sinful Cinnamon treat, the Guava Mangonada will be available throughout Hispanic Heritage Month and until Sunday, October 22, which gives you ample time to enjoy the Guava Mangonada—a delicious and visually stunning beverage with Tajín’s chamoy sauce swirls and a bright seasoning blend.
“We’re proud to partner with Wetzel's Pretzels, bringing two iconic brands together to create a unique twist on a classic treat,” said Javier Leyva, Director for Tajín USA. “The perfect pairing resulted in a crazy good drink that we know our collective fans will love.”
And while the Guava Mangonada is satisfying and refreshing on its own, albeit with a spicy kick, why not elevate you drinking experience and spike it? You know that’s exactly where my mind always goes.
Normally I’m not a big fan of vodka cocktails as I prefer to taste my booze but vodka isn’t a bad way to spike the Guava Mangonada for no other reason that it really lets the drink’s flavors shine. Otherwise, I found that silver tequila works well too. It still is subtle but just makes the slushie experience a little more fun. After all, tajin and tequila are an ideal combination. With some added tequila, the slushie consistency helps create a margarita-like mix of a fruity and spicy libation that is right on refreshing.
