Fanta Cream Soda

Fanta Cream Soda

I just had one of those “everything I ever thought was truth is now a lie” moments. This is soda mousse aka Canadian cream soda. From the can I expected it to be red, like the Crush version of it. Instead it is clear like most cream sodas. There is nothing mind shattering there. That came when I saw that it was made with real grapes. Does cream soda normally have some sort of grape base that I have been completely ignorant of my whole life? I don’t think that is does, and my tertiary search online came up with nothing. That leads me to a follow up question; why does this have grape juice in it? Until I noticed that it had grape juice in it I thought it tasted similarly to the Crush cream soda; fairly standard with a slight berry flavor to it. Now I’m second guessing that. It tastes weird to me knowing that there is grape juice involved. I feel like my taste buds are trying their hardest to search out a grape flavor. Do I actually taste it or am I imagining it? I can’t say for sure, and there is no one around for me to have them try it. I can say I enjoy the pop. It’s hard to go wrong with cream soda, especially one that is slightly unusual.

Fanta Cream Soda Imported Directly From Canada

Fanta Green Soda

Fanta Green Soda

Lime. That is what I 100% expected from this soda. From that statement you can probably gather that I was wrong. This actually ended up being one of the least likely flavors I could imagine; bubble gum.

Let's start this off by saying I normally think bubble gum pop is fairly disgusting. It reminds me too much of the fluoride the dentist used to use on me when I had braces. On first sip I was shocked and put off by the flavor. Seeing as it's a million degrees out and I was dying of thirst I took another swig and I tasted something familiar. This tastes 100% exactly like Bazooka Joe gum. It's like someone took a ray gun to the gum and it became carbonated liquid. It's so strange, but I can't help but like it. I feel like I should buy a bottle for any and all ten year olds in my life.

I just have two questions. 1. Why is it green? 2. Where is my comic strip?

Fanta Orange

Have you had orange pop before? You've had this. It's nothing special. I don't hate Fanta, and they really hit the nail on the head when it comes to generic flavored drinks. Once again, I don't hate Fanta. I don't think that they're out there to shock anyone and for that, they will sell drinks to everyone. Congrats on making a solid drink that millions upon millions of people will buy and enjoy. Also, I wish we had cool bottles like this in the States again. Thailand: 1, America: 0.

Fanta Pineapple Banana Orange

Fanta Pineapple Banana Orange

Normally, we take a picture of the can here at Thirsty Dudes. We have kind of a rule that you take a picture of the bottle full but I guess it doesn't matter if it's in a can. Either way the color of this pop had to be shown. I mean, come on. It looks like carbonated Ecto Cooler. It looks like poison. The taste and the smell? Spot on like banana Runts. You know, those little banana shaped candies you get out of vending machines in bowling alleys.

Now I am not too keen on bananas. Sorry America, but I'm not. This is more of a candied banana than a real fruit banana. See how I keep talking about bananas and haven't once mentioned pineapples or oranges? That's because I didn't get as much as a hint of either one of those guys in this drink. Pineapple is typically a superstar in drinks. It's so acidic that it can't help it. This on is entirely banana.

Also, it should be noted, that this can in its entirety has 190 calories which is 70 more than most 12 ounce cans so I will not be drinking this whole thing and since no one is here to share it with me, half will go in the turlet sans flush so someone has to ask themselves, "What the heck happened in here?"

Fanta Red

Fanta Red

Like candy. Drinking Red Fanta is like candy. It's terribly sweet, but so is candy. How else can I describe it? After doing 5 minutes of research, this Thailand favorite (purchased by me at an Asian food store) is a local favorite and holds it weight in gelding. Imagine paying someone in pop. That might be awesome and tooth decaying.

This small bottle went down smooth. It was very fruity and small enough that I don't feel the need to get a toothiotomy.
