Fanta - what's the juice?
We all know that everything to do with oranges is great - juggling oranges, eating oranges, throwing oranges at people and of course drinking that heavenly nector from inside - the juice!
Many people have tried to capture and change the original tangy taste and use it for themselves - none more so than Coco-cola's Fanta brand. But did you know that Fanta was actually a fruit of Nazi Germany and World War 2?
Before the second World War, Coca-Cola was incredibly popular in Germany, but come 1939 and all things American were'nt that popular any more. Furthermore, it was incredibly difficult to import the secretive incredients into Germany from America to continue making the lucritive drink. So Coca-cola decided to manufacture another drink that they could sell to Nazi Germany with what ever ingredients they had that were available, and not market it as being so 'Americany'. And, bam - with the urge to use their imagination ('Fantasie' in German) Fanta was born. And a little thing like WW2 didn't stop one of the biggest companies in the world from turning a profit.
