QUICK REVIEW: Burger King Frosted Frozen Fanta Orange

Burger King Frosted Frozen Fanta Orange

What is it?

In case the name didn’t give it away, it’s Burger King’s new summer drink blending Frozen Fanta Orange with vanilla soft serve.

How is it?

Decent, adequate, ordinary.

Grab a thesaurus, or use that Google thing, and pick your favorite adjective for average. Mine is fair to middling. With a simple concoction such as this, it would be hard to envision it being incredible or terrible. And it’s not; it’s just okay.

I was expecting more of an orange Creamsicle/Dreamsicle taste. This will remind you of that, but only faintly. There just wasn’t much tang from the Fanta and not much sweetness from the soft serve. Also, the consistency was a touch gritty — not quite a milkshake and not quite a slush.

Maybe the BK soft serve is to blame (after all, Dairy Queen and McDonald’s are known for their soft serve; BK not so much). I’m not sure I even knew BK had soft serve before having this.

Is there anything else I need to know?

One caveat about this review: upon ordering I was given the dreaded “let me see if the machine is working” response. After a less-than-confident “I think so” from the manager, my order proceeded. And the Burger King I patronized did not have Fanta of any variety at the soda fountain, so that made me wonder where said Fanta came from for my drink. Unfortunately, the machine that might or might not have been working properly was located out of view, so the mystery endures.

Conclusion:

If you are having one of those blah days where you don’t want to be too excited about something or too disappointed, this might be the drink for you.

  1. Ordered this, as they were offering it for a $1. They gave it to me in regular cup with a flat drunk lid on it. It tasted exactly like a 7 Eleven Orange/Fanta Slurpee. The question for me is, did the employee give me the correct drink or is it something else that should have been? 😉

    1. They probably gave you the regular frozen Fanta, which is $1; the same thing happened to me. The lady who made mine apparently had never heard of the frosted version, or thought the regular was called frosted or something, who knows. She called a manager over who gave me what I actually wanted, for no extra charge.

  2. They have two options, I believe. The Frozen, which is just the Fanta, or the Frosted, which mixes in the ice cream.

  3. This has gotta be the worst idea. How did this make it through. There’s two variations, with such similar names. It is begging for upset people, and wrong orders. But then again, this is coming from the worst fast food there is, from a company that is still doing the same ol’ same ol’.

    1. It may not be the best new Burger King item but Burger King is not known for doing the same thing or being uncreative….if anything Burger King is the one fast food place you can always count on aside from Taco Bell to deliver something new a different on an almost monthly basis…Mac and Cheetos in both original and flaming hot ,Pretzel Chicken Fries, Cereal shakes,….same ol same ol???….. I think not.

  4. Mix Tang into milk for a glass of Orange Creamsicle. It sounds gross, and maybe it is, but it’ll get you there.
