Fizzy drink fans from across the UK were sent into a panic last week after rumours began circulating that Fanta Lemon was being taken off the shelves.
The rumour began on social media platform, TikTok, after one user shared a picture of a can of pop over a swimming pool with a caption reading:
‘Fanta Lemon discontinued from all EU countries from 28th May 2022.
‘Holidays never gunna be the same :(‘
But has Fanta Lemon been discontinued in the UK?
Here's everything you need to know:
Has Fanta Lemon been discontinued?
The Sun has confirmed with Coca Cola, who makes the popular fizzy beverage, that Fanta Lemon will not be discontinued.
A spokesperson for Coca-Cola said: ‘We continue to offer a wide range of Fanta flavours across Europe, and Fanta Lemon continues to be a key part of this portfolio.’
A similar rumour began circulating four years ago on Twitter when a user asked the official Fanta page: ‘Have you discontinued Fanta Lemon?’
Fanta responded in a now-deleted tweet: 'Sadly, yes, Fanta Lemon has been discontinued.
‘But, you can check out our 12 flavours at Fanta.com to see what's available near you.’
It was reported that the flavour was only discontinued in the US and not the EU.
The rumours sent UK fans into a frenzy, causing the Fanta account to tweet: ‘While Fanta Lemon is still not available in the US, it has not been discontinued elsewhere! We apologize for any confusion.’
