Another hard seltzer isn’t exactly something to get excited about. Unless, of course, it’s Topo Chico hard seltzer, which has just landed here after wowing the rest of the planet last year.
You may recognize the name as the particularly refreshing, thirst-quenching and bubbly mineral water you enjoyed on your trips to Mexico. The brand dates back to 1895, but its lineage is much older—it’s said that an Aztec emperor discovered the water’s mountain source in the 1400s. Coca-Cola acquired it in 2017, and has partnered with Molson Coors to manufacture, market and distribute Topo Chico Hard Seltzer in Canada.
Each can is about 100 calories, with only two grams of sugar and 4.7% ABV. Available in four clean, crisp flavours—Strawberry Guava, Tropical Mango, Tangy Lemon Lime, and Exotic Pineapple—it retails at BC Liquor Stores for $25.49 for a 12-pack.
