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!

Your favorite summer getaway spots?

Any favorite places you all have to get away to during the stinking hot summer months? I would love a long weekend away somewhere (ideally cooler!) We did Hakodate/Aomori one summer and really enjoyed it. Would love to hear your suggestions.

Hot water into cold water

I heard or read somewhere that pouring hot water into cold water was not a good thing to do. (I like my water luke warm sometimes) Something to do with religion or dead association with dead people (and Japan does not like that) Have you heard of this? Any sources I could see so I don’t mess up in a critical moment?

Annoying morning futon slapping noise. What time is OK?

There's a middle-aged guy, living in one of the apartments in the building across the street from me, who hangs out his futon between 7 - 8 am and then bangs the sh@*t out of them with one of those stupid plastic slapping devices. Honestly, I want to take it from him and slap him with it instead. Of course, I'll end up doing nothing of the sort, but I find this futon-slapping at that time so annoying and noisy and am astonished that he continues to do it despite his noise echoing down the whole street and him being the only person on the street to do so (at least at that sort of time). If he was in my building I might stick a note through his door or something, but I'm not sure about the protocol of doing that when the culprit is in a different building. I'm also wondering if the 7 - 8 am slot for futon-slapping is a perfectly acceptable one and actually it's me that needs the attitude adjustment. Thoughts?
