  • Fanta finally hits Toronto shelves...

    Four flavours available Grape, Red Tangerine, Cream Soda, the last flavour I believe is Wildberry which nobody is carrying in my area. Overall they taste pretty good, I swear "Cream Soda" tastes exactly like "Barq's Red Cream", though Red Tangerine easily is the best of the bunch, while grape tastes too much like a grape freezie...

    I hope the flavour variants of Coke Zero (Vanilla/Cherry) don't get delayed like Fanta was...

    Speaking of Fanta

    I was recently in Concord, NC, and while there I found Orange Fanta Zero in a Wal-Mart store. I also found Diet Orange Crush. While the Diet Crush was a disappointment, the Orange Fanta Zero was the best diet orange soda that I've ever tasted. It was better than Diet Sunkist, and much better than the Diet Crush.

      I have to admit, I was very surprised by Fanta Zero. Regular Fanta is pretty much swill, or at least that's what most people say, but Zero is pretty darn good. I don't know if it's better than Diet Sunkist, but it's right up there with it.

        I hate Fanta Zero. The taste too strong, and it makes me feel sick. I have about 9 cans of it at home and I don't think I'm going to drink them.

        Give me Diet Sunkist or even Diet Tropicana Twister any day.

          i agree. fanta orange zero is great! i have to hunt to find it though. luckily, one of the supermarkets in my neighborhood carries it from time to time so i can stock up.

            i don't like diet tropicana twister. it tastes like a baby aspirin to me... kind of chalky.

            fanta zero tastes like an orange popscicle to me.

              I doubt Canada will get Fanta Zero anytime soon, all in all, the Fanta flavours don't taste as good as their Crush rivals. I also found out why most stores are not carrying "Wildberry", it has to be the most disgusting beverage i've ever tasted. I would'nt doubt if Wildberry was the first flavour in the line to be discontinued. Grape doesn't taste that good either, as it's Freezie/Popsicle flavour leaves alot to be desired. Ch*$st even Cynar Grape tastes better than Fantas own...

                    Crush has some decent flavours in their line, more times than none, it's the more obscure flavours that taste the best (i.e. Pinapple, Lime). I heard Crush Cream Soda is a hard to come by in America, but it's not as elusive here in Canada...

                      i actually thought the fanta red tangerine was not bad...
                      the fanta cream soda is very rancid....but i know the kids will really love the jolt of sugar from it...
                      i still think fanta pineapple was the best of the lot and i'm bummed it wasn't released as one of the flavors....
                      if fanta becomes a hit, i wouldn't be surprised for a zero to come out...just to stick it in pepsi's face that they could successfully introduce a diet line of their flavor brands (unlike their failure to capitalize on their diet crush line)

                        You mentioned a Wildberry Fanta. Is that flavor blue? For a VERY short while (like a month), Danville VA had a "berry" Fanta that was blue. It tasted just like Pepsi Blue and was out in that time frame. Man I miss that stuff.
                        Keep me posted about any Sparkling MISTICs!!!

                          I has a fountain Fanta Orange at BK today.
                          I must say it was tasty.

                            Whether it becomes a hit or not, according to a couple of Coca Cola reps I spoke to, Fanta is here to stay (in Canada). Most likely we will see diet varients down the road, but not anytime soon. I would have loved Pineapple myself but looking at the way they market Fanta (i.e. each country having their own unique flavours), I was not expecting to see it on Canadian shelves. If Coca Cola plans on replacing any of the initial four flavours though, Wildberry better be the first casualty.

                              Nope, the Wildberry in our parts is a Crimson/Burgandy type colour...
