New Watermelon Salty Fanta protect drinkers from summer heatstroke

In Japan, nothing says summer like the taste of a plump red watermelon, and here the juicy fruit is often enjoyed with a sprinkling of salt.

This tantalising flavour combination is now the highlight of Coca-Cola Japan’s next drink to be released as part of its Fanta line, with the new “Watermelon + Salt” variety available in stores across the country from July 2016.

This new salty Fanta has been developed to help protect drinkers from summer heatstroke.

The 490-milliliter bottle is set to retail for 140 yen, while the larger 1.5-liter bottle will be on sale for 320 yen.
