Minute Maid sodas changed their name to Fanta around 2004-2005. It's strange, the orange soda in Europe has a yellow color.

Fanta was and still is a good soft drink.

It probably doesn't taste the same as it used to.

Holy Crap! I never realized until right now that this Fanta is a re marketing of the old Fanta drinks! It never occurred to me because the packaging and marketing were so different! i remember drinking the orange out of the glass bottles!

The best Fanta was the red creme back in the 80's. Nothing tastes like it. They absolutely refuse to bring it back.

I used to drink this stuff like it was going out of style. Our school lunch room had a drink machine and all they had in it was Fanta in orange, grape, and cream soda flavours. All I wanted to drink was grape Fanta.

Fanta originated in NAZI Germany during WW2 when the coca-coal plant there weren't able to get any supplies they created Fanta. The original flavor was Beet.

Fanta in Europe has real fruit in it. our recipes in US do not.

Rick is right. There are over 40 different formulation of orange Fanta in the world. Germany has one of the best formulations I've ever had.

Fanta had a very bizarre Nazi Germany. Coca-Cola had bottling plants in several European countries during the 1930s. As the Germans invaded these countries (most notably, Holland), an embargo was placed, denying the occupied countries exports of ingredients and glassware to the Coke plants. The Germans used the shuttered Coke plants (in The Hague and Amsterdam) to create a carbonated beverage...Fanta (German for "Fantastic"). After the war ended, the Coke plants reopened (or rebuilt, if bombed), and the named Fanta was adopted by Coke as a new line of beverage for America and the free world. After all these years, Coca-Cola almost never advertised Fanta in broadcast media, only in Life and similar magazines.
