Fact of the Day: Fanta Germany

Fanta soft drinks originated in Germany in 1940 when a World War II trade embargo made the ingredients for Coca-Cola nearly impossible to get. After the war was over, Coca-Cola regained control of the German plant and eventually made Fanta international.

  2. Fanta is THE brand here. People don't order lemon soda or orange soda; they order Fanta Limón or Fanta Naranja. It was a surprise to me.

  3. Fanta is huge also in Finland! Never knew this though, so this was such an interesting detail! A couple of years ago, there was a huge piece of news here when we found out that Fanta doesn't taste the same all over the world. The ingredients are different in different countries. I thought I had immagined it all, because I had noticed that it tasted very different in Southern Europe for instance. The Finnish version is terrible, so I hardly ever drink it. Coca Cola is simply the best! Thank you for stopping by my blog!
