– The Fanta logo stands behind one of the world’s most loved brand of fruity soft drinks. It was created by Coca-Cola and is still a part of that giant drink producer, but the story of this particular drink’s creation is interesting to say the least. It appears that Coca-Cola, its parent, had some difficulties to import Cola syrup into Nazi Germany due to embargo restrictions, so they had to come up with something else. And this something else was discovered by Max Keith, the leader of the German branch of Coca-Cola in those times. His idea was to create a fruity fizzy drink to replace the unavailable Coke by using ingredients easy to find back then: whey and dpomace. He later recalled creating the drink using the “leftovers of leftovers".
– In spite of its modest and not quite so savory start, the orange-flavored drink, which takes its name from the German “phantasia" (phantasy), is still a crowd favorite to this day, world-wide.
