Orange colour[edit]

From orange juice:
Orange juice is sometimes naturally colored to match the color of orange rinds.

I'd say that orange juice is yellow, while the orange shell and Orange Fanta are orange color. Maybe I am comparing apples and oranges. -- Error 02:19, 23 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Countries in alphabetical order[edit]

Fanta Sours[edit]

Someone forgot to add Fanta Sours. I added it to Australia since I live here and I've had it before. Don't know about USA or other places. -Food'N'Games — Preceding undated comment added 18:50, 13 May 2005

Countries with Fanta[edit]

I added South Africa, since it wasn't on the list. The flavours are identical to South Korea, curiously enough. —Preceding unsigned comment added by ManicParroT (talkcontribs) 14:14, 9 March 2006

Fanta is also in Nigeria —Preceding unsigned comment added by 142.156.1.223 (talkcontribs) 15:56, 26 April 2006

Fanta Light (UK)[edit]

I notice "previously known as". Fanta Light was completely replaced with a new drink (Fanta Z) due to Light being a complete disaster. (I'll vouch for that, it tasted horrible).

Fanta Z was introduced with a bizzare advert campaign involving people spitting out Fanta Light due to it tasting so bad http://www.ephinx.com/tvadverts/34/fanta-z-goodbye-fanta-light-advert.html

therefore fanta light is a discontinued drink. not just the old name for fanta z

Hitler's Favorite Drink?[edit]

A few vandalism reverts ago, there was some quip about Fanta being Hitler's favorite drink? Was this vandalism or not? —Preceding unsigned comment added by FX 72.197.133.100 (talkcontribs) 16:04, 23 November 2006

According to Cola Wars part 2, it is said that Nazi headquarters is described as beingf "prime consumers" of coke products —Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.192.93.252 (talkcontribs) 19:51, 12 February 2007

Ireland[edit]

Can I just say that the "Ireland" and Northern Ireland bit needs to be changed Northern Ireland is part of the United Kingdom even though it shares the geographical Island with the Republic Of Ireland

Fanta ad campaigns[edit]

Hey all, I found the Fanta ad campaigns (launched in 2007) on the net. Shall I add the OFFICIAL YouTube links?

Why is it called Nazi Germany? Never see USA called Black Enslaving USA or Apartheid USA for more recent times[edit]

If wiki refers to things that happened in Germany in 1930-1945 as Nazi Germany then Everything in USA pre 1866 Should be called Black Enslaving USA and everything between 1866 and 196? Apartheid USA! --TobyWongly (talk) 05:45, 5 May 2017 (UTC)

We generally follow how sources name things. Are there many sources which use the terms you mention? --John (talk) 06:37, 5 May 2017 (UTC)


If one does a brief search for Fanta on google, sources overwhelmingly identify the origin country as "Nazi Germany"[1], [2], [3], [4], [5].

Furthermore, on the wikipedia page for Nazi Germany (rated as a 'Good Article'), the opening text states "Nazi Germany is the common English name for the period in Germany history from 1933 to 1945, when Germany was under the dictatorship of Adolf Hitler...". Using the period-accurate title of Nazi Germany is in agreement with current source material and Wiki's definitions for consistent and common names. 2601:141:200:BB50:315B:6A6F:27E:2F83 (talk) 21:08, 4 April 2018 (UTC)

@2601:141:200:BB50:315B:6A6F:27E:2F83: I agree. The nation of origin should be listed as Nazi Germany.

Pre Fanta[edit]

i own a pre Fanta Fanta bollte, still filled. It's called Citrun limonade-gazeuse, sugarfree. The bottle is almost the same Bottle as the later Fanta models, only the ripples go all the way to the top. Bottled in the local Amsterdam Coca Cola company, before they stared to bottle Fanta.

Logo Caption[edit]

I'm really confused--the info box at the top right only shows a single image. But the caption describes two images?
