Fanta Fruit Twist
Advantages: tasty and fruity
Disadvantages: lots of sugar
I don't drink fizzy juice all that often, especially sugary fizzy juice as I worry about my teeth. Fanta fruit twist has to be one of my favourites though and I will have it every so often for a treat.
Fanta is part of the coca cola company and comes in a variety of of fruit flavours. These include orange, lemon, fruit twist and a new flavour red fruits. The orange and lemon flavours also come in "zero" variety which has no added sugar. I have had the orange and lemon varieties and I think they are ok, but I much much prefer the fruit twist, would love it more if it came in a sugar free variety!
The fanta fruit twist is a sort of pinky orange fizzy drink, it is available in 2 litre and 500ml bottles as well as 330ml cans (though I rarely see the cans about, the bottles are much more common). It is a mixed fruit flavour drink and contains 4% fruit juice. The fruit flavours in the drink are orange, passionfruit and peach and the flavour is lovely. It slightly reminds me of lilt (another favourite of mine) but without the pineapple.
Since this is a sugary drink it is not exactly good for you, the nutritional information is (per 500ml):
As expected this drink has a lot of sugar in, but that is typical for most sugary fizzy drinks, so as long as it is not drank all the time, it is fine for a treat.
Fanta fruit twist is pretty widely available, from garages to supermarkets, to cafes and corner shops. Expect to pay around £2 for a 2 litre bottle of fanta twist (though currently on offer in tescos for £1) and £1 for a 500ml bottle.
Overall I would definately recommend this drink to any one with a sweet tooth as it is really lovely and refreshing, especially straight from the fridge or in a glass with lots of ice, perfect on a nice summers day (if summer ever comes!)
Summary: a lovely fruity fizzy drink
