Introducing a Mysterious New Taste: ‘What the Fanta’ Dessert-Themed Flavour

Fanta® is excited to announce the release of its newest creation in the ‘What The Fanta’ (WTF) line - a unique dessert-themed flavour that for the first time ever combines scrumptious dessert-inspired notes with an enticing purple hue.

Brace yourself, Fanta community! The same Fanta® that you adore has been reinvented with a taste of dessert and a dash of fruity flavour bringing you an unforgettable fizzy adventure. Our newest release under the WTF umbrella, which forms part of The Coca-Cola Company’s ambition to continuously innovate and provide choices across our beverage portfolio, swirls the joy of a premium dessert experience with an aesthetically pleasing, Instagrammable purple colour.

"With great delight, 'What The Fanta' is back after a triumphant run in 2022 that clinched six prestigious awards, including gold at the New Generation Social & Digital Media Awards and SMARTIES Creator Economy, along with a NielsenIQ BASES Top Breakthrough Innovations in South Africa accolade," says Ramokone Ledwaba, Marketing Director for The Coca-Cola Company in South Africa.

With no added sugar and the perfect balance of tangy and sweet, the new purple ‘What The Fanta’ is a delicious mystery waiting to be solved. Each sip will reveal a riddle for the taste buds, encasing an undisclosed dessert-themed flavour.

“Fanta® is renowned for exciting and engaging consumers with fun new flavours and inspiring campaigns. #WhatTheFanta brings together everything Fanta does best – disrupting the category by entertaining its growing fanbase while bringing innovative new flavours to market in exciting new ways to recruit new fans,” concludes Ledwaba.
