We at Triangle Distributing Company love our craft sodas. One of our personal favorites is Jarritos, a craft soda from Mexico that is light and refreshing, and sure to be the perfect addition to any business’ soda list.

The Jarritos brand was created in 1950 by Don Francisco “El Guero” Hill in Mexico. By 1960, it had spread to 8 percent of the country, making it the most popular Mexican soft drink. The name, Jarritos, roughly translates to “little jugs” in Spanish. Traditional frescas were served in small clay jugs, which were designed to keep the beverages cool. The Jarritos logo even integrates the colors of the original clay jugs – green and brown – paying homage to that tradition.

We definitely appreciate their commitment to their Mexican heritage. Jarritos has even kept their original slogan from 1950: “Jarritos, they’re so good!”

The first Jarritos flavor was coffee flavored and was sold in a 400 mL bottle. Unfortunately, most people prefer their coffee plain, not carbonated. This inspired Jarritos to move into more fruit based flavors, such as mandarin and tamarind, all sourced locally and using 100 percent natural cane sugar to provide the sweet taste found in each and every bottle. Jarritos’ colorful and flavorful sodas surged in popularity, and today the mandarin flavor is so popular that Jarritos goes through almost 30 million mandarins per year. Wow!

Jarritos did not start importing its beverages to the United States until the late 1980s, and at Triangle Distributing Co., we’re very grateful to have the opportunity to distribute this particular craft soda. Not only does it have a great flavor, but it has a unique history and we’re certain the 12 distinctive flavors will sate the thirst and excite the tastebuds of your customers.
