Disadvantages: too many calories
I have always drank the fanta fruit twist for as long as I can remember. I could actually say it's one of my favourite drinks. I just bought it one day to try it out, and since then I just kept buying it.
It is so different from other drinks and has this unique appearance in the market.
Whenever I go for my main grocer I always make sure that a fanta fruit twist is in the basket.
_______About the Company_______
Well, Fanta is part of the Coca-cola groups. However, they do have a bad background, Just like coca-cola, fanta uses a lot of sugar in their drink to create that sweet taste that you'll get addicted to when you start consuming the drink. However, if you should know that, they have huge sugar plantations around the world. One of their biggest ones are in India and somewhere in south America. In these plantations, they have the poorest people working in them including children, which is rather a shame and disgusting thought. These people who work in these plantations get paid less than two dollars a day after hard labour.
I thought this was all lies till I watched the video, that was taken via a hidden camera.
These huge companies try to give a huge picture that they care about the environment, but they don't. The only thing that these huge Multi national Companies care about is maximising their profits just like any business in the private sector. They even throw out their manufacturing waste in rivers, which kills fish etc, You might think this is a long time ago situation, but believe you me, this is happening right now and the governments can't do much about it because these companies boost their economy.
________Smell & Taste______
Oh My God, I don't even know were to start. This fanta fruit twist drink has a marvellous taste that will leave you satisfied. The fizziness of the drink gives this really strong taste of the flavours.
It is hard to gulp the whole drink in one go because it is just to fizzy. But why would you be in such a hurry, you just got to take your time and enjoy the refreshing taste of fanta fruit twist.
I must say that, they called it fanta fruit twist for a reason. You can really never tell which flavour fruit you are tasting, it does have orange in it which I though was a strong fruit, but you can never tell, which enliven me a lot. When I open the bottle I always smell the drink because the smell that comes from the fanta is extraordinary yet soo delightful.
For a long time I have been drinking the great Fanta fruit twist. My friend also likes the drink and drinks it like crazy, till one day she alarmed me and said we going to get fat will all the calories in this drink. That's is when I paused and had to look at the calories, you can call me stupid if you want, but all these time I been drinking this Fanta fruit twist, I had never took note of the calories because I was too in love with the drink (love is blind) and never thought bout the calories.
A 500ml bottle of fanta fruit twist has an amazing 295 calories, over 60g of sugar. It does not have any fat or sodium and the proteins and fibre are hardly there.
Therefore, fanta fruit twist is not a healthy drink, but that does not stop me from consuming the drink.
If you are concerned about the calories you could try and buy fanta low calorie drinks that says 'fanta zero' meaning no sugar.
_____Cost and Packaging_______
Of course the fanta fruit twist comes in a colourless bottle which has a rapper with all the information you might need to know (nutritions, contact details of the company etc).
You can buy the fanta fruit twist drinks from a lot of shops, if you don'w want to encounter disapointment just go to your local supermarket and you would deffinetly get one. The prices do vary according to were you buy them and the ml you want.
The 500ml bottle cost between 80-£130 depending were you buy them, they are normally expensive if you buy them in garages such as BP. The cans are normally from 50-70p and the huge 2litre bottles vary from £130 - £2. If you want to buy the 2litre bottle try Iceland first because they always have deals on their 2litre bottles.
Oh yes, I do recommend this drink even though it my not be healthy but the taste is worth it.
--- You might not want to consume the drink if you are allergic to Orange or any other citric juices.
---The prices I noted are due to change anytime.
---Save the environment and recyle the bottles or cans after consuming.
---You might also want to try out other fanta flavours.
---You can have this drink anytime (when having dinner, after sports etc)
---Avoid giving this drink to kids because they will go hyper.
Summary: a unique drink that tastes sweet
