Fan of Fanta
I love Fanta Red. I even blogged about it when I found it sold in Eddie's hometown KK in this post. I mistakenly thought it was Cherry flavour, it's actually strawberry. I can no longer find this in most of Malaysia (except in KK for an exorbitant price) and Singapore, so was really chuffed to see it in abundance here in Bangkok.
It appears indeed true that Malaysia and Singapore doesn't carry this soft drink; as shown in this Wiki page.
And from that wiki page, I also learnt something very interesting:
Red Fanta has been officially endorsed by the King of Thailand as one of his preferred drinks. Consequently, glasses and open bottles of red Fanta are often seen as offerings on the small Buddhist altars displayed by every Thai home and shop.
He he he...do I have royal taste or what?
