Fanta is a household name when it comes to fizzy drinks and American soda. Although, the classic iconic orange flavour of Fanta actually originated in Germany not America as you might assume!
The fruity flavoured carbonated soft drink was created by Coca-Cola Deutschland as a substitute for Coca-Cola in 1940 due to the American trade embargo of Nazi Germany.
They only used ingredients available in Germany at the time, and the name Fanta, was the result of a brainstorming session. The team were told to ‘use their imagination’, as the German word for imagination is ‘fantasie’ someone replied ‘Fanta’.
By 1943, the popularity of Fanta had soared in Germany with three million cans being sold that year.
Why is Fanta different in the UK?
The current recipe for Fanta was developed in Italy in 1955, but did you know that Fanta in the UK is yellow but in America it's orange?
That’s because Fanta in Britain and Europe is Fanta, while everything sold elsewhere is a coloured soda drink using the Coca-Cola brand name of Fanta. But don’t panic, there’s big advantages to this when it comes to all the different Fanta flavours available to be imported from America. We’ve also got some unique Japanese Fanta flavours too.
