Yes, it's true! Fanta Red Cream Soda does in fact exist. After my last post about it, I decided to contact Coca-Cola one more time. I emailed this time, and I received a quick response that I could find fountain Fanta in the US. Well when I asked where, they responded it was no where close to me (I'm still not convinced it's here). They told me that Canada distributes it. I was so excited because Canada is not that far away. I decided to call a grocery store to make sure before I go driving up there. When I asked the guy at the grocery store if they sold that type of Fanta, he said "yes." What?? I couldn't believe it. I convinced him to go to that aisle and make sure that it actually said "cream soda." I'm sure he thought I was crazy, but the Fanta here is also in a pink can. After finally convincing me that he did sell it, I told him that he totally made my day (again... crazy lady pumped about soda). Anyway, my sister in law went to Canada, and brought back three cases for me!! Bless her heart! I am sure they were cursing my name when they were hauling them back to the boat... sorry guys! Needless to say, we will be making a little excursion to Canada soon. I have a friend from Canada (the sweetest person on the planet) that probably knew all along that they sold Red Cream Soda Fanta there... Sarah... why didn't you tell me girl??? Actually they call it Mousse- and it doesn't say red, so you are off the hook.
It is so delicious!! I am officially satisfied!! Oh wait... nope nope... now my quest is to get a Cafe Rio here. They do not franchise yet, but maybe someday. I guess there will always be something... why did I have to think of that delightful salad? I have tried to make home made ones- they're just not the same.
A huge Thank You to Chris and Beth for bringing back my favorite childhood beverage!!!
