Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Fanta Z Apple Confirmed sighting: Fanta Z Apple
Posted: 15:56 Wed 26-Apr-2006. Price: 80p. Location: C-Store in Swindon. Nutritional unusualness: As few as "4 calories per 100ml", apparently.
"Dave" reports: Just picked it up on Thursday, the latest addition to the Fanta range from Coca-Cola. Tastes to me very similar to Apple Tango, although the wife says different. But I must admit that it does looks like a urine sample.

...Coke's Z-list lineup continues to expand with this new flavour, not to be confused with 2004's "mid-calorie" Fanta Apple Splash (or even Northern Ireland's Fanta Greenz). In other Coca-Collaborations, "paul" provides no evidence of having paid 75p for a "Coke football bottle" in Sainsbury's, claiming he "Only picked it up for the novelty value. It's a 250ml bottle in the shape [of] a football. It's a bit of a rip-off with the price but it will sell well", and it's not clear if "Andy Simcock" actually sampled the finally-due-in-the-UK-in-September Coca Cola Zero he saw in "Bondi, NSW, Australia", saying it's: Sweetened partly with a blend of aspartame and acesulfame potassium. Aspartame is a key ingredient in Diet Coke, but a spokesman for the Atlanta-based company said Coca-Cola Zero will have a unique taste. Saw it sold in bottles, while on holiday there.

Comment: I can vouch for the 'football bottles'. Seen them in the local pound shop.

Comment: Selfridges have some "exclusive" World Cup gold/silver bottled Cokes/Diet Cokes. I have no idea what the price is.

Comment: I'd rather have sugar than f***ing carcinogenic aspartame in my drink you halfwit soft drinks companies

Comment: Fanta Z Apple is a very convincing fizzy apple drink. With Diet Coke with Cherry and Coca Cola Zero I'm starting to think that perhaps Coke *are* capable of making non-horrid no-sugar drinks.

Comment: I've had a number of 2 litre bottles of Fanta Z Apple with a nasty brown sediment in the bottom - and have since seen them on shelves in Tesco in the same state - has anyone else seen this?

One of our bottles is going back to Coke for testing.

Comment: I saw the sediment in ASDA and thought it was no worse than Origina, but I guess as apple juice goes, sediment is weird. Not tasted it (sediment or not) and so I would not know if it is safe, but if it was on taste test I think I would be okay with the whole 'bits of apple' thing.

Comment: Well, the sediment certainly isn't intentional - nor pleasant. Lumps of grit mainly.

Comment: I've got a reply from CCE. A number of bottle from one batch have undergone low level fermentation. They've taken measures to stop it happening again, so we can get back to enjoying the drink now. :)

Comment: Did they give you some form of compensation?
Posted: 15:35 Wed 12-Jul-2006 by "Mr David" # permalink comment
Comment: They did. £8 in vouchers for the three dodgy bottles I'd bought.
