LIQUID JELLY FIZZY FANTA IS ACTUALLY A THING!
Launched globally in 2017, Jelly Fizz is the first product that Fanta launched under its multi-sensory range of products. Initially launched in Japan and Hong Kong, Fanta took 5 years to make this product global. It’s essentially like a fizzy liquid jelly that is packed inside a soda can.
75TH ANNIVERSARY CAMPAIGN GONE WRONG
As a part of Fanta’s 75th-anniversary celebrations, Fanta launched a video about the original recipe of Fanta as an attempt to bring back the feel of the “Good old Times”. Though Fanta’s aim through this video was to bring people back their childhood memories, it backfired badly because people soon figured out that the ad called the era of Holocaust “Good old Times.” Needless to say, Fanta had to pull back the advertisement after facing an immense backlash.
NIGERIAN FANTA WAS FOUND UNFIT FOR CONSUMPTION BY THE COURT
Owing to the amount of benzoic acid found in the fizzy soda, UK’s court of law found the Nigerian Fanta poisonous and unfit for human consumption. The amount of benzoic acid was beyond the permissible standards in the UK. While this much quantity of benzoic acid is harmful in itself, when it is combined with Vitamin C found in citrus flavor, it has the potential to form a compound that is linked with cancer.
