If Jamundí is known for something, it is for the ‘Cholado’: the perfect mix between crushed ice, multicolored syrup and varieties of refreshing fruits. This is so true, that for years this city in the south of the department has had a square where sellers compete for being known as the place here the best ‘cholado’ is served. It is a meeting point not only for jamundeños, but also for all those who declare themselves lovers of one of the most coveted typical drinks in Valle del Cauca and Colombia.
The options are endless: orer it with pineapple, apple, grapes, papaya, cheese, ice cream, wafers; But!, do not forget that a ‘cholado’ is not complete until the edges of the glass are oozing with condensed milk.
