Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Fanta Beach Strawberry and Kiwi flavour Confirmed sighting: Fanta Beach Strawberry and Kiwi flavour
Posted: 19:05 Sun 29-May-2011. Price: 1-1.79 for 2 litres. Location: Asda, Benton; Morrisons, Cleveleys. Nutritional unusualness: 104kcals, 25.4g sugar, 0g fat, 0g saturates, 0g salt per 250ml serving.
This is a bit complicated, and starts with "Greg Lowe" reporting: "Don't often go to Asda, but was in at the weekend and noticed 3 new 2L pop bottles. Cherry 7Up [pictured here with three new Reggae Reggae Caribbean drinks] tastes exactly like the cans. Blackcurrant Tango is the same as it was when it was out a few years back and Fanta Beach is strawberry and kiwi flavour, very nice it is too over some ice."

But the pic comes from "Barry Mills", who elaborates: "As we usually go over the top for the Fanta Strawberry when we're in the Canary Islands, I was excited to find this UK variant in my local Morrisons. It's easy to miss this variant of Fanta, the bottle colour as well as the contents look identical to Fanta Fruit Twist, with the only immediate differences being the 'new' and 'beach' labels adorning the front. Taste-wise it's a bit of a letdown. I prefer it to Fruit Twist, however the strawberry smell is very slight, as is the taste. Dont even mention the kiwi part, because either my taste buds are shot, or I just can't taste it. However for a quid, like most Coca-Cola branded drinks these days... you can't really go wrong."

...And if you're keeping up with this so far, it's a different product to both the new Fanta Red Fruits also available in Asda, and the semi-legendary Fruitizz apple and raspberry juice with spring water seen in a Cardiff McDonald's (whose Great Tastes of America 2011 menu makes minimal changes to last year's, though New York has been promoted to 'Classic' status).

Anyway, for those above legal drinking age: the Brothers Special Edition Ginger is my favourite of the current crop of novelty ciders, though I haven't yet tried St Helier's new pink variant and Bulmers' mysteriously named No 17. Or you could allegedly adjust your brain chemistry via two new drinks endorsed by countercultural icons Bob Marley and Che Guevara - the 50p Che "Revolution of Energy" is a lot like Red Bull, and substantially improved with a shot of supermarket own-brand Malibu (though then again, isn't everything?)

Comment: It is vile. They might pride themselves on only using natural colourings, but the flavourings are far from natural. The most disgusting drink I've had in a long time.

Comment: When has Coca-Cola ever done anything 'natural'?

Comment: It tastes overwhelmingly of kiwi. I quite like it - it's certainly different.
