Fanta Green Apple

Sunday, June 24th, 2012

Fanta Green AppleThere’s something to be said for living above a Chinese grocery store, and one of those things is “Oooh, interesting sodas!”  Fanta is a global powerhouse of fruit flavoured sodas owned by Coca-Cola.  It’s got a checkered pass, originally having been invented in Germany early during World War II, out of commercial necessity, when the import of Coca-Cola syrup was blocked.  Coca-Cola Deutschland was essentially cut off from Coca-Cola central, to be reclaimed after the end of the war, but was never rolled into the Nazi regime.

So, Fanta Green Apple is a little bit sour, and very crisp.  It’s very flavourful, even if it’s not quite what I’m usually looking for.

Crush Grape (Diet)

Crush Grape (Diet)I am a huge fan of grape flavoured sodas, and Crush has always been one of the best.  As I’ve been cutting out the HFCS over the past few years, grape soda has been something that I’ve missed.  Luckily for me, I’ve recently been able to find mixed flats of Crush Diet at Superstore!

I’ve never been a fan of Aspertame, but the Crush line seems to have a good mixture.  Crush Grape Diet has a nice heavy grape flavour, just like the non-diet variety.  Crush always has such great flavours, and so many of them, I only wish that more were available in Canada, particularly in the diet varieties.
