Anyone ever heard of Fanta Magic? I was at The World of Coke last week and there I tried Fanta Magic, W.O.C says it is only available in Estonia. It's really good and would love to have some at home. Does anyone know of a specialty distributor that might supply it?

Thanks for any help.

It was like a berry, it's been over a week since I was there on vac. Wiki has it as a blue grape. I've tried all the U.S. flavors and there nothing like it.

A long shot, but finding a town or city with a large concentration of eastern European immigrants might be a place to start.

Unrelatedly, but still interesting, I picked up two 6pks of 185ml cans of Fanta Shaker from South Korea. From what I understand, there is jelly-like substance suspended within the liquid part of the soda, and you have to shake it up really good to mix the two (recommended number of shakes? 10). The flavors are grape and orange. I found them at H-Mart.

After some searching, I may have found some sites that may help you. There are "Estonian Houses" located in a number of large cities, which are gathering places for the local Estonians (and I am sure that others are welcome). They have events, meetings, and so on. Some of the sites have listings to local shops, but unfortunately since you did not indicate where you are, I can't be much help to you.

For example, here is a listing provided by the DC house:

DC Estonian (http://www.dcestonian.com/resource/old/index.htm)


This is the original site I found, it seems like a good starting place, with links to the other houses (though not all links work anymore).

http://eesti.us/

You could always try emailing the house closest to you, asking if there are any Estonian or Baltic/Northern European grocery stores in their area. Chances are, if there are enough traditional Estonians in the area, the demand will be high enough for a store, or at least a selection of items within a larger international store.

Ebay is a dead end, most of what I found on there is paper money, coins, or stamps.

Good luck!
