    Default Fanta Blue Raspberry out...

    ...in Toronto at least, and it looks like Coke nixed the "Blueberry Splash" moniker, and opted for "Blue Raspberry" instead.

    After tasting this stuff though i'm sorrily disappointed, it seems like Coke can't get these Berry flavoured sodas to taste even the least bit palitable.

    I will put it out there and predict this new flavour will soon meet it's demise in a year or so, just like it's Wild Berry bretheren...

    Hmm, never thought of that, I just remembered those Chubby Soda Pops and their kid flavoured offerings like Blue Cotton Candy, which are equally as disgusting.

    Oh well, i'll just stick with Pepsi's Crush soda offerings as it seems like Coca-Cola has officially killed the Fanta brand for me, just like Frito Lay's killed Hostess...

    Unhappy Come here fanta!!!

    Why aren't fanta flavors all released nationally? All we have here in KY is orange and grape. Strawberry, I have seen more of lately, but I have never seen pineapple, never seen blue raspberry, never saw apple, never saw citrus, never saw peach here at all. When I would go down south to Georgia/Florida I would see apple and peach. I would like to try all of the fanta flavors at least once, but if they don't sell here then it looks like I will never get to try them.

    I agree, Fanta should release all flavors nationwide. Where I live we only have orange and grape.

    Does not make sense to release all flavors nationwide....if you do not have the demographics for these flavors its not worth only a few cases.....you will be taking up precious space in your cold vaults, coolers, etc. You can use that space for the new products or stuff that sells.

    You make a good point and I agree with it. IMO...The Fanta brand would be more appealing to broader a demographic if Coca Cola were to re-tool/improve the quality if it. As I see it now, Fanta is more of a 2nd tear brand.
    Don't worry, be happy. Meher Baba
