This popular soda brand started in 1950 by a man named Don Francisco “El Guero” Hill. Jarritos broke the accustomed soft drink standards in Mexico by introducing a large bottle of approximately 400 ml with a coffee flavored beverage. Shortly after launching the first Jarritos soft drinks in Mexico City, he developed a process in order to remove tamarind juice extract in order to create the first tamarind flavored carbonated drink in Mexico, now popularly known as: Jarritos Tamarindo. He went on to implement this process with other fruits, which lead to the creation of the beloved flavors: Mandarin, Lemon and Fruit Punch. The natural flavor of this carbonated beverage quickly became a sensation and today is known as the national soft drink of Mexico, which is currently available in 80% of the country, and has sold to other markets including the U.S. and South America.
