This past summer, Coca-Cola expanded its US beverage portfolio with the introduction of the Barrilitos Aguas Frescas lineup. Inspired by a beloved Mexican drink, the new beverages are making a splash in restaurants and foodservice outlets across the US.
The Barrilitos Aguas Frescas are inspired by the Aguas Frescas, or ‘fresh waters,' of Mexico and Central America. Just like the traditional Latin American drinks, the new beverages are made up of a subtly sweet fruit, seed, flower and water combination that is non-carbonated and ultra-refreshing. For added variety, the Barrilitos Aguas Frescas come in seven traditional flavors, including Horchata, Tamarind, and Mango Lime.
Caffeine-free and boasting a lower calorie count than most sodas, the new fruit waters are designed to appeal to those who grew up drinking Aguas Frescas, as well as those who may be looking for an exciting new drink option.
