Bertolli is a relatively famous Italian brand, although it was recently (2014 maybe) bought by a Japanese corporation. If it is written made in Italy, almost surely it is. If it something that is typical of Italy, maybe it is but I'm not aware of. Most probably, it can be something sold as pesto as it is a kind of brand already fidelised :)

 

PS: sometimes, someone adds tomato sauce to pesto: as far as I know, it is made in a pizzeria franchising quite famous in Italy. Maybe this is just pesto to which sauce was added :D

 

naaa...

 

this is the kind of "pesto" @wumo26 was referring to:

meanwhile this is the typical kind of "pesto" you're mentioning (with tomato sauce added to the classic basil leaves):

Maybe it's the "pesto alla siciliana"..Never heard of it and never tasted it though (and honestly all the souces in glass bottles are pretty horrible here :lol:)

I'm almost sure that it isn't the pesto alla siciliana becouse i don't see the ricotta.... It seems more a sort of pesto of tomato and nothing more :p

 

as I wrote before, that was not the "pesto alla Siciliana", which is this one:

What are these? They look like Swiss rolls but they were baked in a very different way from what I'd expect them to be served (like we do in Brazil). By the way, we call Swiss rolls in Brazil "rocambole".

What's the best selling beverage (preferentially non-alcoholic) unique to your country? In Brazil we all drink guaraná, and even Fanta decided to create their own soda version of the drink.

 

In Mexico, Coca Cola made a similar beverage from guaraná called Senzao some years ago... I liked it when I was in middle school, but after that I found it rather sweet, but that could be from some change in the soda's formula.

In Mexico there are a number of local produced sodas and soft drinks; among the most known are "Jarritos" ("little jugs") which are made from tropical fruits like pinneaple, guava, mandarin, watermelon, tamarind and even hibiscus flower.

Another popular drink, especially among kids is Tonicol, a drink made from vanilla extract

I want them all! Especially the watermelon, tamarind and guava variations. There are local brands in Brazil that market unusual flavors like pineapple and tangerine too. There's even a brand that created a soda made of leaves from a Brazilian plant called chapéu de couro, a rather bizarre choice for a soda variation. The funny thing is that this drink, called Mineirinho, is somewhat popular in the state of Rio de Janeiro.

@heywoodu, have you drunk Mineirinho?

Jarritos is pretty well established in California too, but I’ve had and seen it sold in other states. I think it’s better than most American soda brands. Korean soda is also quite available in Southern California

I would like to try it, I like to experience new flavors :thumbup:

 

As for "Jarritos" I'll try to find whether they are exported to Brazil.

Is there any reason for that? 

In Brazil it's not uncommon to find Japanese drinks in a number of select stores. Not really surprising, since the largest Japanese population outside Japan lives in Brazil. I'm especially fond of Calpis. This thing is delicious!
