Denver Exclusive Snacks are Here!

Desert Drinks’ new location is finally open and we’ve got all the treats you love with exclusive Exotic Snacks like Nutella Biscuits!  It’s been three incredible years since we’ve started our journey with foreign foods from around the world and we’re thrilled to have come so far.  From a small business operating out of our own home to our first physical location in Phoenix, it’s a great honor to finally open our second store in Denver Colorado.  Why are we honored, you may ask?  Like us, you won’t settle for the mundane and ordinary and we definitely couldn’t have achieved the impossible without your love and support.  Our fans are as passionate about Exotic Snacks and Sodas as we are and your infectious enthusiasm is not only the reason still standing today but the reason we’re thriving!

Kit Kat in Other Countries

We all love Kit Kat and their memorable jingle but few people know Kit Kat flavors come in more than just chocolate.  Before becoming an exotic snack with over three hundred flavors across the globe, Kit Kat came from humble beginnings.

The Joy of Exotic Drinks

As we hit the peak of summer Desert Drinks is helping Arizona stay cool by bringing the joy of Exotic Sodas to your doorstep.  Let’s face it, there’s nothing like a cold, lightly sweet, and fizzy drink on a hot, August day.  Most of us can admit treating yourself to a soda is more than a way to stay hydrated, it’s a deeply satisfying and nostalgic experience.  How many of you have stopped by a vending machine on your way to class?  How about that essential visit to the convenience store while on a road trip with friends and family?  Could you contain your excitement when you discovered your favorite, hard to find drink was in stock?

We’re Getting a New Store!

When we first got our start, we had no idea our love of unusual flavors would grow into the business it is today, that’s why we’re excited to announce the expansion of Desert Drinks and Exotics.  That’s right!  We’re opening a brand new location in Denver Colorado!  If you love trying new things and experiencing exotic snacks and exotic sodas you can’t find anywhere else, then you’re going to love what we have in store for you.  We’ve got tasty treats from Peru, Japan, Russia, Thailand, Egypt, Korea, India, China, and so much more.  But that’s not all, we also have hard to find regional foods from around the US.   If you crave it, chances are we’ve got it!

Sweets, Treats, and Intrigue

By the end of WWII in 1945, domestic and international factories were destroyed, forcing the company to start over from scratch.  Determination and hope were all that kept the company afloat until they finally re-established production of their products, and thankfully, the company enjoyed over 40 years of uninterrupted success… until their CEO, Katsuhisa Ezaki suddenly vanished.

Morinaga and Hi-Chew

If you’re as passionate as we are about exotic snacks and exotic sodas, you probably know that most of these international delights were molded by the culture and time period they originate from.  M&Ms were inspired by food rations from the Spanish Civil War.  Nutella was designed to stretch limited coco supplies after WWII.  Instant Noodles were designed as an easily accessible food during famine and periods of war.  And Hi-Chew?  It turns out chewing gum in public is considered rude.  Let’s face it, it’s pretty unsightly to watch someone pluck gum from their mouth for disposal.  Hi-Chew was designed as a treat that would dissolve slowly while you chew it, removing the need to spit out your gum.

Flower Viewing Season

Sakura are cherry blossoms, Japanese cherry blossoms to be specific, and they have been cherished for their beauty since the dawn of civilization.  The cherry blossom is the national flower of Japan, and considering cherry trees bloom in the spring, it’s no wonder these powdery pink blossoms are seen as a symbol of renewal and hope.  Because sakura season is very brief, they also represent the transient nature of life.  While these blooms are lovely, did you know they are also delicious?

Exotic Snacks the Desert Drinks Way!

We at Desert Drinks have been hard at work organizing our March “Snackness” subscription boxes.  We’ve crammed them FULL of all the amazing, fruit-flavored, exotic snacks and exotic sodas you could ever hope for.  While March marks the beginning of warmer months, it also hosts one of our favorite holidays.  Desert Drinks is all about good food and drink and St. Patrick’s day brings that and more.  Green beer, parades, revelers decked in green, and the quintessential corned beef and cabbage all take center stage on St. Patrick’s day, but this holiday didn’t become the celebration we know today until the first gathering in 1930’s Boston.
