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. Read More
