Fanta is a fruit-flavored carbonated soft drink created by Coca-Cola Deutschland in 1940. It was developed as an alternative to Coca-Cola in Nazi Germany due to the American trade embargo, which affected the availability of Coca-Cola ingredients. The name “Fanta” comes from the German word “Fantasie,” meaning “imagination.” Fanta was created using ingredients available in Germany at the time, including whey and apple pomace. Fanta Orange is the most popular flavor and is available in 180 different countries. There are over 70 flavors of Fanta worldwide.
