Today's Review: Shokata Fanta
Well, that's a blue bottle of Fanta. That may have been your first thought, it was definitely mine. Upon closer inspection I found it was named Shokata Fanta, and looking at the shelf label I helpfully informed me that it was blue Fanta. But the back of the bottle gave up all the info, it's lemon and elderflower flavor. Now, I'm not a massive fan of elderflower, and I already know of a perfectly good lemon Fanta, but I figured I'd give this a go.
I don't know if it's the color of the bottle messing with my brain, but this did taste like blue. The lemon is definitely present, a nice tangy flavor that immediately comes to the front. The elderflower is pretty authentic too, a lovely sweet taste that emerges afterwards and blends together into something quite sweet, and somewhat sour. Unfortunately the flavours fight it out a little too much, and the sweet wins out slightly, making something of a flatter overall flavor than I was expecting. Still, it's a tasty drink, and one you certainly won't miss if you come across it. Pick one up if you fancy a Fanta that's a little bit different.
My rating: 4/5
