Mezzo Mix (official notation: mezzo mix) is a product of The Coca-Cola Company, first introduced in Germany in 1973.

About[edit]

Mezzo Mix is sold and produced officially only in Germany, Switzerland and Austria. The brand's slogan, translates into English, as "Cola Kisses Orange". It is basically standard Coca-Cola with a light orange flavor, comparable to Spezi. In Spain it is called Fanta Mezzo Mix Naranja & Cola. In Sweden it is called Fanta Mezzo[1] and was released in late January 2017 as a limited edition, connected to the music event called Melodifestivalen (Swedish qualifications to Eurovision Song Contest).

Mezzo Mix was previously one of eight international soda flavors featured and available for tasting at Club Cool in Epcot.

Varieties[edit]

There were two kinds of Mezzo Mix in the 1990s: orange and lemon. The latter was unpopular and was discontinued, but a lemon flavored Coke entered the market again in 2003. In July 2007, Mezzo Mix Zero was introduced in Germany as a low-calorie variant. Early 2013 around Valentine's Day, Mezzo Mix Berry Love was introduced in Germany. Instead of an orange-like flavor, it is a raspberry flavor mixed with cola. It was a limited edition, being available only in February.

Ingredients[edit]

Mezzo Mix contains water, sugar, orange juice, carbonation, color: caramel coloring, citric acid, flavoring, caffeine, ascorbic acid, stabilizer.
