Fanta, known for their fun flavored and brightly colored drinks, is launching an all new flavor in a color that is sure to brighten up those last cold days of winter.
The new Fanta Dragon Fruit Zero Sugar is hitting retailers now and will be on shelves until July 10th. The flavor has 100% natural flavors reminiscent of slightly sweet pear, watermelon and kiwi and appears fluorescent pink. It is caffeine-free, calorie-free and sugar-free.
The new flavor joins a handful of other Fanta flavors, including Pineapple, Strawberry, Grape, and Pina Colada, as well as Sugar Free Orange.
If you’ve never eaten dragon fruit, also known as pitaya, it is native to Central America and Mexico and has a unique tropical flavor, which some have described as the union between a kiwi and a Pear. It’s unclear if Fanta added watermelon to the mix to create the flavor profile of its new drink.
Although this is a first for Fanta, dragon fruit has appeared in a few other drinks over the years – it’s been at Starbucks since 2018. The coffee chain’s seasonal drink Mango Dragonfruit Refreshers is made with red-fleshed dragon fruit, which is shaken into the drink. with sweet mango. Starbucks also has a refreshing Mango Dragonfruit Lemonade drink and a Dragon drink (made with coconut milk) on its list of cold drinks.
Dunkin’ also added a Strawberry and Dragonfruit Freeze in 2020. Taco Bell launched a Dragonfruit Freeze the same year.
You can also buy freeze-dried dragon fruit powder on Amazon to make your own drinks like this one from Pure Cane. The recipe also calls for mango juice, white grape or apple juice, unsweetened non-dairy milk, and if you want a caffeine boost, green coffee extract.
A handful of other new snacks and drinks have hit stores recently or are expected to do so in the coming months.
New drinks include a Mocha flavor of Coca-Cola with coffee, a limited return of Dr. Pepper Berries & Cream, and even a fortified version of Simply Lemonade. Snacks include Cocoa Puffs popcorn, Flamin’ Hot Cheddar and Sour Cream Ruffles, new Cheez-It Puff’d Crackers and flavored popcorn like Nacho Cheese Doritos.
If you’re looking to satisfy your sweet tooth, Peeps will be making two types of coffee-flavored chicks this spring, Oreo has a new line of frozen treats, and you’ll find cake-flavored Fudge Stripes cookies from Keebler.
