In 1950, Don Francisco “El Güero” Hill founded Jarritos. He was an
accomplished chemist and tinkerer who always left his beakers
and journals all over the house, especially the dining room.
The original Jarritos flavor was coffee. Yeah, we know, most
people like their coffee hot and not carbonated. So our founder
gave fruitier fruits a try, and Mandarin was born. Other flavors
soon followed, like Tamarind, Lime and Fruit Punch.
No fruit is harmed in the making of Mandarin-flavored
Jarritos, unless you count those 30 million mandarins we go
through every year. That’s almost the population of Canada!
Hmm. Maple-flavored Jarritos, anybody?
The official anniversary of Jarritos is August 29th. On that
day, we ask you to raise your favorite flavor of Jarritos in
honor of our founder, Don Francisco “El Güero” Hill. While you’re at it,
raise one on all the other days, too.
Jarritos was born in 1950. By 1960, it was being bottled and sold
in 80% of Mexican states—making Jarritos the best-selling,
naturally flavored soft drink brand in the country.
The name “Jarritos” might mean “goat shoes” in German, but it
also means “little jugs” in Español. And whaddya know, traditional
fruit-flavored aguas frescas were served in clay jugs to keep
them cooler longer.
Want to hear something weird? The Jarritos logo has the colors
of our most popular flavors, Mandarin and Lime, which are very
similar to the colors of the original clay pots, which were
naturally brown on the bottom and glazed green on the top.
Coincidence? Yeah, probably.
It turns out that the original Jarritos jingle meant the same
thing in the 1950s as it does today. “¡Jarritos, qué buenos son!”
still means, “Jarritos: They’re so good!”
1,500 bottles of Jarritos are exported every minute. 45,000
glass bottles of Jarritos can be filled every hour at any of our
bottling plants in Mexico. Laid end to end, they would measure
7.1 miles long, which is the same as 18,744 tamales!
As Jarritos has grown over the years, we’ve always sourced as much
fruit as possible from different Mexican regions. We even have our
own mandarin groves at an undisclosed location in Yucatán.
Jarritos has been to more countries than some billionaire playboys.
It is available in all of the locations you see above. Perhaps someday
it will be sold on the moon, if there are thirsty moon people to buy it.
Jarritos is too super fun to be delivered just by trucks. Boring! On their
way to a store near you, some of our bottles are carried on boats across
pirate-infested waters, just like in old-timey stories. They are also
transported by planes and on bicycles driven by powerful luchadores.
You win some and you lose some, and sometimes you
lose three months’ worth of glass bottles in a big, huge
earthquake that happened in 2010 in Mexico. Oh, well.
At least no one was hurt!
People are always underestimating tamarind, because it is weird and
brown. But it is actually awesome. Tamarind provides shade for coffee
plants and is part of Jarritos’ efforts toward sustainable farming.
Long ago, when green was just a color and not a thing where you
have to recycle and eat granola, Jarritos was already working
with local farmers to grow mandarins locally instead of importing
them. It costs more, but it makes a delicious Mandarin soda.
Our original bottles were not labeled. People just knew what
flavor it was by the color. And since we use real fruit flavors, we
bet they could identify them just by taste. What are you doing
this afternoon? Who wants to drink Jarritos blindfolded?
We want everyone in the world to try Jarritos, which is why
we’ve given away 180 million ounces of Jarritos in the last 10
years. That’s enough ounces to fill 2.6 billion thimbles with
Jarritos, if you wanted to do that for some reason!
Jarritos sodas consumed throughout the world are all produced in Mexico
and made with cane sugar. Only real sugar guarantees the
authentic Jarritos taste that families have loved for generations.
