You want some serious bubbles
back in your Club Soda?


The iconic fruit flavor of summer,
now in a bottle, will keep you refreshed,
cool and smiling any time of the year.

As the Official Drink of Tacos, Jarritos certainly has a flavorful story to tell. Their fresh fruit ingredients are picked from all over Mexico, and thousands of their soda bottles enter the U.S. daily, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that it’s one of the most beloved soft drink brands around!

But have you ever wondered how these delectable flavors came to be? Here are five facts about this Super-Good soda brand to quench your thirst for knowledge:

1. The Jarritos founder was a bit of a scientist

Back in 1950, Don Francisco “El Güero” Hill founded Jarritos in his own home. He was also an accomplished chemist known for leaving his beakers and journals all over the house, especially in the dining room.

2. Jarritos soda was originally coffee-flavored

Sure, coffee-flavored soda sounds a bit strange, since most people prefer their coffee to be hot and not carbonated. But soon Don Francisco Hill experimented with fruitier fruits to make Mandarin, soon followed by beloved favorites such as Lime, Tamarind and Fruit Punch.

3. The Jarritos logo shares its colors with two popular flavors

Coincidence? Maybe so. In English, “Jarritos” translates into “little jugs”, the same kind of clay jugs on the Jarritos logo that kept fruit-flavored agua frescas cooler longer in the olden days. The little jugs were also naturally brown on the bottom and glazed green on the top — colors that happen to correspond with two of Jarritos’ most popular flavors: Mandarin and Lime!

4. Original Jarritos bottles were unlabeled

Like magic, early Jarritos tasters just knew which flavors to pick by looktheir color. Since Jarritos uses authentic fruit and sugar ingredients, we bet today’s loyal Jarritos tasters could identify their sodas just by taste, too. With over 10 delicious flavors, you have plenty of opportunities to put your tastebuds to the test and try it out for yourself!

5. August 29 is the official anniversary of Jarritos.

On this historic day, Jarritos encourages its customers to celebrate the launch of their sodas by raising a bottle of their favorite flavor in honor of their founder, Don Francisco. Salud!

Did someone say taco night?! Whether you’re having a casual Taco Tuesday dinner or a big friendly gathering, the taco-serving options seem to be endless. But if you’ve got a crowd to feed, consider building a self-serve taco bar — and since Jarritos is the Official Drink of Tacos, you’ll definitely need some of this super-good Mexican soda handy to keep everyone quenched.

Read up on five of our taco-tastic tips for making your next taco night one to remember!

Choose your fillings

Seasoned ground beef and grilled chicken are both common taco fillings in the U.S., but if you want to up your taco game with something more authentic, try your hand at smoky carne asa, rich barbacoa, crispy carnitas or saucy chicken tinga. Be sure to prepare two or three different options so that your guests can mix and match their taco fillings according to their preferences.

Stock up on tortillas

It’s an age-old debate: Flour or corn tortillas? Everyone has their favorite! Keep the whole room happy by stocking up on both choices. Wrap the tortillas in foil and warm them in a 200-degree oven, and then when it’s time to serve, store them in a tortilla dish for warmth and easy serving.

Keep the toppings fresh

Provide enough topping options to allow your guests to pack their tacos full with flavor. Must-haves include queso fresco, minced white onion and/or pickled red onion, pico de gallo, sliced jalapeños and cilantro. If you’re serving rice and beans alongside the tacos, break out a Crock-Pot or a pre-heated serving tray handy to keep your sides warm.

Don’t forget the salsa, guac and sour cream

It’s simply impossible to build a proper taco bar without this trifecta of Tex-Mex taco toppings! Serve these tasty additions in small bowls with spoons so that your guests can top their tacos before taking that perfect first bite.

Break out the Jarritos!

Jarritos are the obvious drink choice to pair with your scrumptious taco feast. Place your favorite flavors in a large serving bucket filled with ice about an hour before the meal starts so that your drinks will be perfectly ice-cold once it’s time to chow down. From the tang of Mandarin to the classic sweetness of Mexican Cola, you’ll have a rainbow of flavors to choose from to complement your culinary creations.
