When Cola begins to feel unadventurous.

Most of our Indian readers are likely to know of Fanta as an orange-flavoured soda. It's a good cola substitute. A substantial gulp snuffs out any gustatory discomfort induced by Szechuan, Sriracha, or samosas. Sometimes, it even makes a good substitute for an ice lolly. But since Binge shifted base, we found out that the sugary, citrus-y fizz comes in alternate flavours like grape, berry, strawberry, mango and pineapple as well. 

Dublin supermarkets like Donnybrook Fair and Spar stack cans of these in their refrigerators. If you're travelling or moving base like us, and are intimidated by the newness of the flavours despite their approachability, we've tried them all out and identified flavour profiles you'd easily relate to.
