What The Fanta PURPLE Mystery Flavour 2023 #WhatTheFanta (Ocado) By @Cinabar

What The Fanta PURPLE Mystery Flavour 2023


For the last few years, Fanta has released a mystery-flavour drink, usually in a bright colour without much of a clue as to what the taste may be. It plays on the fact that what you taste is influenced by what things look like, so if a drink is orange in colour, you sort of expect it to be citrus. However, having tried these drinks for a while, the moment I discovered the Fanta Mystery Flavour for 2023, I immediately ruled out blueberry and blackcurrant, the purple fruits. I know better.

I opened up the bottle, and the scent of the drink immediately jumped out at me, no questions, no hesitations this drink smells like strawberries and cream. There is a sweet, fruity strawberry aroma as well as a softer, more gentle, creamy vanilla aroma. I was pretty sure I’d nailed this.

I gave the Purple Fanta Mystery Flavour Drink a sip, and as much as the scent is strawberries and cream, the flavour is a little sharper, with strawberries, lemon, and sour cherries mixed in. That was much more the vibe of the flavour. The taste has less soft vanilla than the aroma, but it is still present. My final guess is still strawberries and cream, as I can’t quite put anything else together. Have you tried it? I would love to know your thoughts.

My (uneducated) guess is rhubarb and custard :)

cinabar said...

That is a fab guess, the sharp fruit flavour and the smoother vanilla taste. I think you may well be right.

Vanilla frosting

cinabar said...

Definitely a creamy vanilla taste - but something else too, something acidic?

Vanilla ice cream

My daughter said it tasted like sour yoghurt!

cinabar said...

Well there is dairy and there is sour so it is a good guess. Not my dream flavour though! :D

My brother said the after taste tasted like a popcorn jellybean

caramel or toffee

cinabar said...

Am I the only one that thinks there is something fruity there too?

Anonymous said...

I was thinking something like marshmallow

DEFINITELY CARAMEL

cinabar said...

I can see the caramel element, I get that in the taste too

cinabar said...

oooh - marshmallow, that is an interesting call, specifically pink marshmallow with that touch of fruit that i swear is there

I was thinking strawberries, but like not fresh ones, but more like when you've got a bigbush, and they fall off and people tread on them, and you get that squashed fruit into the grass aroma... and then the smokey after-taste of some old geezer walking past with some quality shag in his pipe.. thats what i was thinking.

Dave Fleming said...

Drumstick lollies (although I get the strawberries and cream - certainly something vanilla in there)

I could not put my finger on it at first but very familiar. Then it popped into my head, cheese cake, but still not sure what flavour of cheese cake. The Vanilla in peoples comments is true.

cwd said...

I could not put my finger on it straight away but then it came to me. Cheese cake, but not sure what flavour of cheese cake. Definitely a mixture of fruit and the vanilla you expect in the cheese cake filling.
