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!

Clothes shops for the "not too young but not too old" crowd?

I'm pushing my mid 30's now, and I want to know about good places to find clothes here that fit that age bracket. I feel like there's a lot of stuff here suited to the 20-something crowd and a lot suited to people well older than me - but I seem to be missing the bracket that suits my age group! Any suggestions/recommendations for women's clothes stores that aren't going to make me look like a granny, but aren't going to make me look like a teenager?! Added point: I'm a mom of two kids so I need practicality, too!

Best cell phone options?

I am about to get a newer cell phone and sign up for a plan in Japan. This is actually my first time getting one in Japan. I was wondering what options are the best. I of course have heard of Softbank, AU, and Docomo, but I wanted to know what everyone recommends...

Easter events

I know it is not very common to celebrate easter in Japan, but since more and more easter goods and sweets are in the stores, I thought there might also be some events. Does anybody know of some easter events, preferable in the Kanto area?

What's your favorite Tokyo hanami spot?

I feel like I've hit up all the "standard" hanami spots: Yoyogi, Asukayama, Ueno, Yanaka... What's your favorite spot (preferably not on that list) and why?
