Club Cool has debuted several new soda flavors for guests to sample!
This fun, FREE option in Disney World’s Epcot has always been a dedicated fans’ pit stop in the middle of a hot, exhausting touring day (even though I really do miss the old “walk-through-a-glacier” entryway! That blast of cool air was awesome!).
The main goal of coming here is either to indulge in some of the more palate-friendly Coca-Cola beverages from around the world, or to trick friends and family members into trying one of the more bitter options — Beverly!
Speaking of — fans of Beverly don’t need to worry. The favorite Italian aperitif is still on tap.
But several options have been retired, and the new flavors include beverages from Zimbabwe, Thailand, South Africa, and Peru.
Here’s a peek at the Club Cool choices!
Our friend @MealTrip tried them all, and wasn’t all that impressed. He much preferred the previous watermelon (China) and apple (Mexico) flavors to these.
But he went through and took pics of each new flavor so that you’d be able to see what you’re in for! (Note: the see-through cups were used so that you could see the characteristics of each flavor. Club Cool still only offers the small, paper cups for the drinks.)
Fanta (Pineapple): This pineapple version is from Greece and has a sweet flavor with no caffeine. There are more than 90 flavors available in 180 countries. Fanta debuted in Europe in the 1940s and was introduced in the United States in the 1960s.
Fanta (Melon Frosty): This flavor of Fanta hails from Thailand and is the number one soda in that country.
VegitaBeta: Launched in Japan in 1992, this is a non-carbonated beverage with the flavors of apricot and passion fruit. This is also rich in beta carotene, which gives the beverage a bright orange hue.
Bibo: A fruit flavored, non-carbonated juice drink from South Africa.
Sparberry: This raspberry cream flavored soda is from Zimbabwe and is served exclusively in several countries in southeast Africa.
Inca Kola: This Peruvian soda is called “The Taste of Peru” and has a sweet, bubblegum-like flavor.
Guarana Kuat: This soft drink is popular in Brazil and is flavored with the guarana berry.
And of course, Club Cool still has everyone’s favorite Italian beverage, Beverly!
Beverly: With its bitter flavor, this drink is a popular non-alcoholic aperitif. (Though many visitors to Italy claim that nobody knows about it there!)
While we’re going to miss some of the old flavors, we can’t wait to try out these new soft drinks and juices!
Which flavor are you looking forward to trying? Tell us in the comments!
