Fanta 2 Flavors


Fanta, a beverage under the Coca-Cola brand, is a tasty-carbonated soda renowned for its fruity flavors. There are many different flavors of Fanta, many of which are based on the nation in which they are sold. Their original orange taste is the most popular.

Although the traditional orange Fanta is also available in Japan, there is a notable difference between the two in terms of flavor. In Japan, Fanta contains both actual orange juice and extract, unlike in the United States.

The distinctive Japanese flavors that elevate fruitiness are yet another more obvious difference. Orange, grape, and melon are the three most popular Japanese Fanta varieties that you can purchase at your neighborhood konbini (Japanese convenience store).

Grape taste contains actual grape juice as well, similar to orange flavor. The sweet grape scent fills the room as soon as the bottle is opened. It also has an extremely alluring purple red tint that almost resembles wine.

Although orange and grape juice are rather prevalent, melon soda is one of Japan's original beverages. It tastes incredibly invigorating and sweet. Its shockingly bright green color further adds to its peculiarity.
