      My favourite fizzy pop, both regular and diet are amazing drinks

      Rarer and more elusive than coca cola or even standard fanta orange, this Icy lemon flavour is by far my favourite pop on the market, worth going on an expedition to find it. It is more similar to cloudy lemonade than a product like 7Up, I think it's the most authentic lemon tasting drink on the market.

      It is sold in cans, 500ml bottles (cool shape) and 2L bottles- one can is never enough so I always go for the bottles, and they stay fizzy for days.

      it is such a nice drink, the taste is very strong, so refreshing it might knock you of your feet, certainly not a subtle taste so you might find it too strong.

      Fanta and tango are locked in an epic struggle for supremacy, but while Tango I think make the better products (especially the orange flavour product and the wonderful tango apple), Fanta's king beverage is this, tango have nothing half as exciting as this.

      The can is a lemon colour with a blue logo and a swirl in the background- one look at this can and you know that it contains an explosion of taste.

      Best drunk ice cold for maximum refreshment, highly worth trying, and if you're been put off by the other fanta products like 'fruit twist' this is a much better drink so don't be put off by bad experiences, if you want a slightly more subtle taste the diet version is good too.

      Great refreshing drink.

      Fanta Lemon is the Coca Cola Company's answer to cloudy lemonade, and it is just as good. It is both tasty and refreshing when ice cold on those hot summer days, when we get them of course! It's the right balance of lemony without being sour and sweet without being sickly, although there is quite a lot of sugar (in terms of percentage of your GDA) in order to counter the lemon's sharpness in it so you need to watch out for that.

      It frequently ends up on offer (in all sizes from the 330ml cans to the two litres bottles) so it's great value to pick up a stock of it every so often. But I wouldn't buy it when it isn't on offer when other, cheaper fizzy lemon drinks are better value.

      Personally this is my favourite flavour of Fanta, and it hasn't changed very much over the years since I first had it, unlike the Orange or Diet/Zero Fanta Orange. I would have preferred a sharper taste, but since I quite like sucking on lemons themselves I may just be weird.

      Not worth buying!

      Orange fanta is bad enough, and then they bring out lemon fanta, more articial than orange fanta!
      Not only does it taste artificial but it smells and looks artificial too.

      It is a cloudy bright yellowy colour and you can really taste the sweetner in it. It then leaves a weriod afterthought taste which kind of coats your teeth with something you know is going to rott them!

      I would not like to guess at the amount to artificial flavours and colours are in this.
      However fanta is a popular brand so can it be all that bad!
      My review is all about my opinion of it and the next person may have a completely different view on it! My view is I would never buy this again!!

      Price wise it is reasonably priced, it is the same as any other branded drink. But I feel not worth that price!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A great tasting and refreshing summer cooling drink

      What a great icy lemon drink this is! I love Lemon or lime types of drinks in the summer and occasionally this Fanta lemon fizzy drink is on offer in some supermarkets. At the moment its only £1.00 for a 2 litre bottle at Asda. I would jump at the chance of buying this at that price as its usual price can be around £1.75.

      I quite like other flavour Fanta carbonated drinks but I think this one is my favourite. The taste is lovely and lemony but its not too bitter. I have tasted some lemon drinks that are a little too bitter, but thus one is just right regarding its lemon flavour. It remains fizzy if you leave it in the glass for 30 minutes or so and you can see the tiny bubbles popping. The taste isn't acidy either ; it may not be the best sort of drink for people who suffer with heartburn a lot or reflux problems. Actually I probably shouldn't drink too much of this myself as I sometimes get terrible heartburn. I ration my self with this drink; so I may have one average sized glass but that's all I have, I don't drink any more than that in one go.

      The drink is sort of pale lemon in colour, a little bit like lemon barley water colour and the labelling is very appealing; it makes you think of summer and of a sort of drink to have in hot weather.

      Coca cola the makers of Fanta describe this drink as 'Tongue tingling sparkling lemon fruit drink with sugar and sweeteners'

        Disadvantages

        Keep it for a treat rather than rot your teeth with it

        I used to do a frequent trawl up and down to London on the train. As any commuter will appreciate, this kind of travel is hard work. Squeezed onto a busy train, it's hard to relax and unwind.

        In the winter, my little treat to get me through the journey was one of those big Cornish Pasties that you buy from the stand at Kings Cross. In the summer, to reward myself for the commute, I used to buy Fanta Lemon.

        I hated doing it because I knew it wasn't the healthiest available drink, but to me it had just the right mix of sweet and sour. Yes, very sugary and very bad for me, but also with that refreshing lemon flavour that isn't so strong as to make you suck your cheeks in but which is nevertheless very refreshing on a hot day.

        Fanta is a cloudy lemony looking carbonated drink and has a bright attractive yellow, green and blue label. It hasn't got so much fizz as to go up your nose (or down) but just enough to give it a bit of zing.

        Calorie Count is 112 per 8fl oz serving according to the calorie count website. I used to buy the 500ml bottle and guzzle the whole lot. As I am sure everyone knows there are 35.1950652 fluid ounces in a litre so that adds up to - let me see - lots of calories!

        I am not normally someone who spends a lot of money on branded soft drinks and after a while I used the empty Fanta bottle to fill with cool water from the office machine before setting off home. That was a lot cheaper.

        By way of a final moan, I think the prices charged for these 500ml bottles is way too high - over a pound at full price so I only buy them now when they are on offer - lots of profit for Coca Cola and for the retailers - that's why you see them absolutely everywhere. They are so convenient though to carry around with you and much more practical than a can!

        Can't help it - like the stuff.

          .

          I like a good variety of drinks with my lunch each day and so when I spotted fanta lemon in a can today at the shop next to lunch I thought that I'd have a change!

          The fanta is in a yellow can for the lemon flavour of it, it is the same as a normal fanta can apart from the colour. I haven't actually seen it in a can that often apart from in the shop next to school, it normally seems to be sold individually in a 500ml bottle in smaller shops and tourist places. Also, it is readily available in supermarkets like Asda where you can get it in the forms of big 2L bottles for sharing or multipack boxes of cans.

          Although it is quite similar to lemonade, it is not quite the same as your average lemonade like Schweppes, or even sprite or 7-up. It seems to be a lot more lemony, and have a stronger flavour. Its not something for everyone because quite a lot of people won't like how strong the lemon taste it, but it is also quite refreshing and definitely best served cold. I get mine from the shop next to school for 60p. Its currently on offer in Asda, £1 for a 2L bottle.

            A great summery cold drink.

            I don't drink fizzy drinks very often, but I sometimes in the summer you can't beat a bottle or glass of this served ice cold, for an evening drink it goes great with a splash of vodka!

            You can get this in a few various containers, you can buy cans, small bottles (about 500ml I think) and large 2 litre bottles. They are all various prices, but the 2 litre bottle is currently on offer at Sainsburys at 2 for £2.00 (instead of the usual £1.60ish).

            Fanta lemon is pretty much lemonade I suppose, but it just has a lot more flavour. It is packed with loads of sugar, so it's terrible if you are on a diet or anything but as an occasional treat it's not too bad.

            The taste of this is incredibly lemony and refreshing, it does have a lot more taste than a lemonade, it isn't as gassy as other fizzy drinks either, I find I can drink this a lot easier than other fizzy drinks.

            It claims on the bottle that it is a "Tongue Tingling Sparkling Lemon Fruit Drink with Sugar and Sweeteners" and I think that is pretty much right.

            Due to it's lemony taste I find this really refreshing and fruity, and if you need some refreshment on a hot day this is great, obviously it's not as good as water but sometimes it's nice to have something a bit different. It's best when it's cold but I find that with most drinks.

            The only downside to this drink is if you spill it anywhere or get it on your hands, it gets very sticky very quickly, which I guess is down to the huge amount of sugar in it, and I would suggest being very careful when you open it, just in case this happens.

              Fanta Lemon on the rocks please...

              Fanta Lemon is another fizzy drink within Coca Cola's Fanta range. It is similar in taste to cloudy, old fashioned lemonade and it is the perfect drink on a warm summer's day.

              ******************Packaging and Availability ****************

              Fanta Lemon looks like cloudy lemonade and each bottle / can has the logo design on it - the Fanta Lemon logo is a combination of blue, yellow and green - The word 'Fanta' is written in a blue font and there is a fusion of yellow and green in the background.

              This drink is quite widely available - you can pick it up in supermarkets and some corner shops. However it isn't as popular as other Coca Cola products, so some places don't stock it.

              I've also found that this drink is widely available on the continent.

              Fanta Lemon is available in a 330ml aluminium can (which costs around 50p).You can also buy this product in a 500ml bottle (for between £1.00 and £1.20), or a two litre bottle (which is around £1.65).

              ***************** Nutritional information **************

              Each 250ml serving contains:
              Calories: 84;
              Sugar: 20.7g;
              Fat: 0.0g;
              Saturates: 0.0g;
              Salt: 0.0g.

              Ingredients: carbonated water, sugar, lemon juice (6%), citric acid, stabilisers (E414, E445), preservatives (E211), antioxidants (E300) and quinoline yellow.

              *********************** Taste test **********************

              This fizzy lemon drink resembles old fashioned cloudy lemonade. It is very sweet and has a bitter kick, but it is also very thirst quenching.

              Personally I find this really refreshing in an ice-filled glass on a summer's day. However it is quite high in sugar so I wouldn't consume it regularly.

              *********************** Overall ************************

              This is the perfect summer drink. Personally I was first introduced to this drink while on holiday in Spain (which is probably why it reminds me of hot summer days).

              Although it is packed with sugar and calories I would recommend this as an occasional treat.

              I'd especially recommend this to anybody that likes old fashioned cloudy lemonade. It's yummy... but I am giving it four stars because of teh high sugar content.

                Great Lemon flavoured fizzy drink

                Fanta Lemon is a tongue tingling sparkling Lemon fruit drink from the Coca Cola Company.

                I know I drink way too many fizzy drinks but with drinks like Fanta Lemon on the market, how am I supposed to resist!

                Fanta Lemon is my "go to drink" when I'm hung-over as it is just so refreshing and really gets your tongue jumping.
                You know that feeling when you wake up and it feels like your brain has shrunk over night, and your tongue is dryer than a box of sand, Fanta Lemon was invented to cure that feeling!!! I slip on my dressing gown, stumble into the kitchen, open the fridge, and then pour a huge glass of ice cold Fanta Lemon... Mmmmm heaven. Haha

                Though this is a fizzy lemon drink, much like Sprite or 7up, it has so much more flavour and I will always choose Fanta Lemon over any other lemonade drink. You can really taste the Lemons but isn't too bitter with it. I'm guessing this is because of the sugar content. At 20.7g per 250ml (a small size bottle is 500ml!) it is 23% of your GDA, so if you have a whole bottle as most people often do when buying a drink, its nearly half of all the sugar you should have in a whole day! Quite a lot!

                Here are the rest of those figures for you to browse:
                Calories: 84 kcal
                Sugars: 20.7g
                Fat: 0.0g
                Saturates: 0.0g
                Salt: 0.0g
                (all figures per 250ml)

                I prefer Lemon Fanta to the other flavours of Fanta available. I really like the sharpness to it and it's not too fizzy. If you're out and about on a hot summer day, I definitely recommend that you pick up a bottle of Fanta Lemon for when you need refreshing on your travels.

                  A Delicious Fizzy Lemon Juice From The Coca-Cola Company.

                  Fanta Lemon comes in a clear plastic bottle with a thin part about 2/3 of the way up which is great for helping to grip the bottle. It has an screw top lid and a plastic label with the Fanta logo plus recycling information, nutritional information & information on the Coca-Cola company who manufacture the product. The recipe has been altered recently and now contains real fruit juice and no artificial flavours or colours and this is also wrote on the label.

                  The juice is a bright yellow and is carbonated so once it is open there is a fizzing sound and if shaken too much the juice will fizz up and overflow making a real sticky horrible mess if left to dry. The juice is very sweet and I really can taste a strong lemon flavour to it which makes my tongue tingle a little bit and is deliciously tangy and sour. The bubbles are just right not to be over fizzy and this is best served ice cold or 'super cool' as the label advises. I think that this is quite a nice drink, it goes make my teeth feel a little sugary after drinking it but overall it's a nice refreshing drink that doesn't taste much different to before now the recipe has been changed. It is sparkling rather than ultra fizzy and this is just right for me. I do sometimes wonder if my tummy is a funny colour inside from all these strangely coloured drinks that I love! How random...

                  Overall I would say that this is a refreshing fruit juice drink with a few bubbles to it. The bottle is well designed and I paid £1.00 for my 500ml bottle from my local corner shop. There are 34 calories & 8.3gof sugars per 100ml, which is even worse than the Orange version, so this should be enjoyed in moderation as one bottle is around 40% of your guideline recommend daily limit of sugars. I am rating this drink 4/5 and have marked it down one star because of the amount of sugar it contains. This drink is refreshing and I love the tangy flavour to it although it's definitely one to be avoided if you have any sores in your mouth or a tooth ulcer!

                  A delicious fizzy lemon drink

                  Fanta Lemon is a very tasty fizzy drink produced by the Coca Cola Company. It's one of the most authentic fizzy lemon drinks you can buy and I much prefer it to Sprite for example as it has a very intense flavour and is more flavourable than Sprite is, which is a bit bland.

                  You can buy Fanta Lemon in small 500ml bottles or large 1 litre bottles for around 92p and £1.56 respectively. Obviously, the 2 litre bottle is much better for use at home but the 500ml bottle is good for when you're on the move, but it does come at a price.

                  The bottles have a certain shape to them with an ident towards the top as well as a good grip with bubble indents in the plastic so the bottles are extremely easy to use. They are also made of firm plastic too so don't collapse when you open them and pour a drink.

                  The actual drink tastes wonderful. It is full of flavours and has an authentic lemon taste to it. It's quite sweet too and slightly tangy. You can't have large gulps at a time as it's very fizzy at first and also quite tangy with a very intense flavour. It's really thirst-quenching though and is lovely with some ice on a warm summer's day. I'd highly recommend the drink as it's unique and the best lemon fizzy drink you can buy.

                  Thanks for reading,

                    Disadvantages

                    Perhaps too tangy for some tastes but very refreshing

                    Pretty much every drink out there now has some sort of Lemon variant, but few are as tasty as Fanta's one! Whilst some of the others just seem like some sort of a novel cash-in, this one actually seems to have been prepared with dilligence and care, and as a result is delicious and extremely refreshing if consumed in the Summer months straight from the fridge!

                    Whilst focusing on the Lemon element, this version of Fanta differs from regular lemonade drinks like Sprite because the actual lemon is the focus - therefore it is a lot more pungent, and depending on your tastes, this sourness is either a good thing or a bad thing. I think it's fair to say that it may well be too sweet and cloying for some tastes, but if you like your drinks sweet and with a little tinge and a tang, then this is really worth picking up!

                    Of course, no fizzy drink is absolutely healthy, and this is no different, compounded by the fact that there's no diet alternative as it's still a relatively obscure brand of the drink. A small glass (250ml) contains almost 100 calories and over 20g of sugar, making it pretty bad for you even as far as fizzy drinks go.

                    That said, it's an incredible thirst-quencher during the Summer months, when pulled fresh out of the fridge and enjoyed with a wealth of ice, and if you're that way inclined, perhaps a little Vodka too. It's sweet enough to neutralise the taste of the Vodka, and whilst too much for some tastes, is going to be like heaven for those who like drinks like Cloudy Lemonade, and other, more pungent variants of the regular lemonade formula.

                    A disappointing lemon drink from Fanta

                    I don't know what I expected from this lemon flavoured Fanta drink, but it was certainly more than this. Fanta and TAngo are two products that I find very similar when it comes to the orange versions of both. Nicely carbonated, but not too fizzy, they are very refreshing. Similarly, I often find the 'traditional' lemonade drinks available from various sources to be nice and refreshing. However, this Fanta Lemon combines the two - the brand name Fanta, and the promise of a refreshing traditional lemonade flavour - yet fails to deliver either.

                    We bought a bottle of this yesterday in the hope of getting something different. We certainly got this, but not in a good way. It cost around the £2 mark for a 2 litre bottle. It's made with real lemon juice, and has no artificial flavours or colours. A 250ml serving (1/8 of a bottle) will give you over 20g of sugar and 85 calories, and a quick look at the ingredients shows that the 'real' lemon juice it uses is actually from concentrate. It's certainly a far cry from traditional or home made lemonade. You don't get the bitter bite that is so refreshing with real lemonade. What you get instead is the sweet and sickly sugary taste of the concentrate lemon juice.

                    Equally, the carbonation is disappointing to say the least. The first glass I had had a little fizz to it, but ultimately, you could gulp it almost straight away from opening it first time, and yes, the bottle was sealed when I bought.

                    All in all, this was a disappointing drink. It didn't taste horrible, in fact it was a pleasant taste in some ways, but overly sugary and without the usual quality I associate with the brand name 'Fanta'. I would have expected this kind of drink from a regular generic brand new, or an own brand, but from such a leading brand as Fanta, I was sadly disappointed, and won't be buying this one again.

                      Advantages

                      Disadvantages

                      Really good for a summer's day

                      Fanta Lemon is my favourite type of Fanta. First things first, I think the picture displayed here for Fanta Lemon is rather misleading. I know it does not actually show the drink, but I think it implies that the lemon flavour is something that it isn't.


                      The really nice thing about Fanta Lemon is that it is very refreshing on a summer's day, far more than coca cola I would say. The lemon flavour is not very strong and overpowering as this picture might suggest, rather perfectly balanced to provide a zesty yet subtle lemon flavour that tastes really good whilst not leaving any powerful aftertaste.

                      As some people have said, this is definitely better drunk cold if possible, however I find it nice enough to drink if it is lukewarm- though no warmer than this.

                      I don't seem to see it in cans very often, only bottles so probably don't get you hopes up if all you want is a can, but if you are after a refreshing soft drink in a bottle, keep an eye out for this one.

                      great for hot weather

                      Fanta lemon is a non-alcoholic fizzy drink with a refreshing taste and perfect for a cool down on a hot day. It's also manufactured by the coca cola company.

                      The taste is as mentioned before, a soft, sweet lemonade, not sour as the drink contains sugar etc. I'd say in terms of lemon power, it's a weaker taste than sprite and not as overpowering. It has a cloudy appearance with a hint of green and smells sweet. It also gets sticky when dry.

                      Fanta is high in acid content and sugars, aswell it contains E numbers so perhaps should only be given to young children very occasionally. It is however a great drink in the summer and can be enjoyed on its own or perhaps with a slice of lime and a drop of gin. It's your choice. Best served cold of course.

                      Fanta lemon makes a nice change to drinking cola or Dr Pepper etc. I really like this drink and am not the greatest lemon lover so give it a go even if you don't really like lemon. In 33cl cans it can be found for around 40 pence. More or less the same price as cola. However it's perhaps a bit harder to find on the highstreet.
