I really like it when I find a bit of historical trivia that I didn't know, don't you? Of course, you may already know this, but it was brand new to me! What a great way to start the weekend!
Fact: Nazis invented Fanta soft drinks
No matter how unbelievable this fact might sound to some, Fanta was invented by Nazis in Germany back in 1941. It was very difficult for the Nazis to import Coca-Cola syrup into Germany during World War II due to trade embargos. So, the head of Coca-Cola Deutschland, Max Keith, decided to make a new product for the German market.
He used ingredients available already in Germany at the time, including whey and pomace. During a brainstorm on what to name the beverage, Keith said “use your imagination” or “fantasie” in German. Salesman Joe Knipp yelled out “Fanta!” And this is how Fanta was born. Today you can find over 100 flavors of Fanta worldwide.
Sitting here thinking about it, I don't remember ever having a Fanta! After finding this information at Listverse, I may have to track one down...just so I can say I did!
Coffee in the kitchen this morning due to the weather! How about some biscuits, sausage, and flour gravy?
