There is so much to learn about South American food. Just three weeksto ago, Suanne and I were at the Panaderia Latina Bakery to check out the pastries and desserts. Panaderia also had a section where they carry foodstuff from South America.
That was the first time I came across the soft drink called Sidral Mundet displayed next to bottles of Jarritos. I am quite familiar with Jarritos but it is the first I had seen Sidral Mundet.
Coincidentally, a few days later Sindral Mundet wrote to us asking if chowtimes.com want to host a giveaway and help create some buzz for the product. That is definitely something we are interested in doing for our readers, especially when the prizes included the following:
- 1 winner: Apple iPod Touch 8GB
- 1 winner: Apple iPod Nano 8GB
- 5 winners: Sidral Mundet Gift Pack
- 5 winners: Sidral Mundet Backpack

So last week, I went to the Panaderia Latina Bakery to pick up some bottles of Sidral Mundet. I couldn’t write about it if I had never tasted it, right?
When I posted about the Panaderia, El Lobo Solo was mentioning about their Tres Leches cake. Since that comment, Suanne had been pestering me to go buy it on the way home.
Suanne is impossibly crazy over sweet desserts like this … especially when Tres Leches cake means three milk cake! The Tres Leches cake is a sponge cake make with evaporated milk, condensed milk and heavy cream.
The lady at the countered said that we need to let it thaw in room temperature for … 2-3 hours before eating. It is because it is frozen at the store.
There are coconut flakes at the top. The cake is moist. I said that it is soggy but Suanne shushed me up and said it is moist, not soggy. It was like I was saying something bad about about something she likes. I expected this cake to be super sweet. It was not at all. It is rich and Suanne, she was mmm’ing every bite.
As Suanne enjoyed the Tres Leches Cake, I checked out the Sidral Mundet.
The label on the bottle says that “the flavor comes from the apple”. Yeah, the flavour came from real apples juice and none from artificial flavorings.
Sidral Mundet is a popular drink from Mexico. According to their product info, this natural apple soda is endorsed by Mexican mothers who give their children Sidral when they are sick to provide hydration.
The drink is not too sweet and taste a lot like natural apple juice with fizziness. I like the taste. You can check out more about the product by becoming a fan on facebook (http://www.facebook.com/sidralmundet) or Twitter (http://twitter.com/sidralmundet)
