Mentos flavors in Japan

Been chewing away on plenty of Mentos in recents weeks (for reasons that are not important here) but I'm getting sick of just the cola, grape, and mint flavors. In years past I alway remembered there being a whole bunch of Mentos flavors available in Japan but now I can only find the three. If you've seen any other than those mentioned above, can you tell me where?

    Don't know about in stores, since I regularly see the same flavors you mentioned. However, Amazon Japan has choco/caramel flavored ones that sound super good! https://www.amazon.co.jp/%E3%82%AF%E3%83%A9%E3%82%B7%E3%82%A8%E3%83%95%E3%83%BC%E3%82%BA-%E3%82%AF%E3%83%A9%E3%82%B7%E3%82%A8-%E3%83%A1%E3%83%B3%E3%83%88%E3%82%B9-%E3%82%AD%E3%83%A3%E3%83%A9%E3%83%A1%E3%83%AB%E3%83%81%E3%83%A7%E3%82%B3-38g%C3%9712%E5%80%8B/dp/B075KDY4N3/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?s=food-beverage&ie=UTF8&qid=1541576220&sr=1-1-fkmr0&keywords=%E3%82%AF%E3%83%A9%E3%82%B7%E3%82%A8+%E3%83%A1%E3%83%B3%E3%83%88%E3%82%B9+%E3%82%AD%E3%83%A3%E3%83%A9%E3%83%A1%E3%83%AB%E3%83%81%E3%83%A7%E3%82%B3+38g%C3%9712%E5%80%8B

    I remember seeing orange and green apple before in random dagashiyas. I think dagashiya will give you higher chances than other locations (and they are always fun to go through),

    I don’t remember the flavors but I saw some at diaso and can do. I am pretty sure they had more flavors than those three.

    @genkidesu @Jackson @Heath320 Thanks! Choco / caramel? I didn't see that coming from Mentos! My eyes are peeled! The dagashiya and 100 yen stores sound like good options. I'll take a look.

    I’ve seen plum and strawberry in Donki! Also, some game centers have this coin machine thing where you can drop in maybe a 100 yen coin for a few mentoses. (like the gumball machine)

    The chocolate ones (bizarre) were sold at the AEON group store The Big, as well as grape and cola. I doubt they always sell the same products in every location but worth checking supermarkets. Had no idea there was more than mint flavor because I don't ever buy those. Interesting.

    Like Heath, I've seen more flavours at Daiso too. Sorry to answer a question with a question, but...! What about Village Vanguard? That seems like somewhere that might have a good choice. If I'm at one this week, I'll check it out for you!

Amazon hits and misses

Most of my purchases on Amazon have been household goods and groceries. Kitchen equipment, rugs, laundry and bath stuff. For food, mostly whole bean coffee, condiments, and dried or canned foods. So my question is, for kitchen, bath, and laundry, what purchases have you made that were good value for money? What grocery items do you get?

Your fave autumn leaf spots

I know it's still hot right now in much of the country, but I'm already dreaming of the changing leaves (and cooler temps!) of autumn. What are your favorite autumn leaf spots across Japan? Here in Niigata I really like the scenery and colors around Lake Daigenta which is about a 30 minute drive from home!

Recommendation please for Effective JLPT study resources

Good day and happy summer to everyone! Please spare a moment to share your recommendations for effective JLPT preparation resources. I have been invited to work part time as an Assistant English Teacher even they knew I am not fluent in their language both written and verbal, but it was fun and I made it through. Since then, I came to appreciate teaching here but I was advised that I will be more effective and well compensated if I have an JLPT Certification. Please, would appreciate your recommendation as to where and how to map a successful study and preparation path. Also, I have a plan to volunteer and start up a reading and practice your everyday English in my community which is going to be once or twice a month program. Thank you in advance.
