Our Story

Proud Latina-Owned Business

I always knew that I wanted to have a business that reflected my experiences as a daughter of undocumented immigrant parents while still honoring my Latino culture and heritage.

Jarabe is an inspiration from my childhood upbringings of seeing my father sell paletas and raspados in the streets of East Los Angeles - a story of humility that I wish to share with all of you.

Jarabe pronounced hah-rah-beh which means "syrup" in Spanish specializes in serving handcrafted Mexican-style gourmet pops along with  a variety of Latino sweets and treats. With a modern touch, Jarabe hopes to showcase the best of Mexico and Latin America while recreating some of our childhood best sweets.


All of our products are handmade with fresh and natural ingredients, no preservatives, additives, no artificial flavoring and/or coloring. The paleteria will also have a new twist and include Caribbean flavors to honor my partner and Jarabe's Co-Owners' Jamaican heritage.

We thank you for the support and hope our story can serve as an inspiration to immigrant families.
