REVIEW: Burger King Frozen What The Fanta Mystery Flavor

Burger King Frozen What The Fanta Mystery Flavor Slush Cup

Fanta recently unveiled a new line of mystery flavored beverages that are designed to “fool senses and challenge tastebuds with opposite flavor notes.” Read: Fanta is trying to screw with you. Some flavors are appearing in 20-ounce bottles and others are in Coke Freestyle machines or in frozen form at various restaurants. I like to confuse my mouth as much as the next person so I picked up a Burger King Frozen What The Fanta Drink and proceeded to, as the ads put it, “Taste the Unknown.”

Yup, I’m definitely tasting the unknown. It’s a familiar sort of unknown that makes me think I can place it but at the same time, I can’t make a guess with any real confidence. When I ordered, the manager told me it was great and showed me his almost empty cup of the green stuff as proof he drinks it himself. I asked if he had a guess as to the flavor and he offered up “maybe lime something?”

Mine started out perfectly frozen and a light green reminiscent of the daytime color of objects that glow in the dark. It didn’t smell like much at first and tasted fruity but also kind of creamy. These melt fast and the flavor seems to change as they do. After an initial several sips where I thought I should know the flavor but couldn’t put a name to it I began to think it might be strawberry banana. That’s a combination I only know from eating it in the form of Trix yogurt approximately twice as a child because I hate bananas and would never seek out anything flavored like them. That being said, the banana here (if it’s here at all?) isn’t overwhelming or enough to make me dislike it.

Sticking my nose in the cup after about half had turned to liquid gave me a totally different smell, it was heavier on the vanilla and creamy, maybe even sort of caramely notes. Maybe it’s a strawberry banana cream pie? With a little lime and I don’t know…kiwi? Do I even know what a kiwi tastes like? I feel like maybe when they reveal what this mystery flavor is it could be a fruit I’ve never tasted. Jackfruit! Wasn’t that having a moment a while ago? Jackfruit Shortcake is my official guess based on absolutely nothing.

To sum up, this tastes like something that would happen when you mix four flavors at the Slurpee machine but have strategically chosen the flavors in the hopes they won’t clash with one another. It’s a good but not amazing drink and one that I don’t think most people would find objectionable even if they aren’t into the whole “mystery” concept and would rather know what they’re tasting. If you think mystery flavors are fun this one should keep you guessing because I’ve seen people say it tasted like everything from caramel apple to key lime pie and at the price of only $1 it makes for some refreshing summer entertainment.

  1. I absolutely love bananas and the combination of strawberry and banana is pretty awesome so I will definitely seek this out soon!

  2. (1) Re: “I feel like maybe when they reveal what this mystery flavor is…” My sole level of familiarity with mystery flavors seriously comes from this (fantastic) blog; I honestly don’t think that I had ever even heard of them, prior to stumbling upon this site. In that vein, it never prior occurred to me, but…just how often do companies that make and produce said mystery-flavored things officially reveal what the flavor in question actually IS? Do they always?

    (2) I’m really surprised that this is only $1…especially given (a) its size (at least, from what I can gauge from the photos) and (b) the current economy/level of inflation. Great deal, if you ask me!

    1. It’s a great deal, especially on a Wednesday paired with a $3 Whopper
      I haven’t had the mystery flavor yet, but the cherry was very good

    2. It is a good deal! Sometimes with things like Airheads the mystery flavor is just whatever combination of leftover flavors they happen to have around so there isn’t necessarily a reveal but other times the mystery flavors are more intentional. For the recent blue Fanta there are clues to the flavor on their website but I couldn’t find any clues for this frozen one. I don’t know if that’s because they don’t exist or if I’m too bad at technology to figure out how to find them!

    1. Well, I don’t know about this mystery flavor, but the Aguas Frescas Limonada sounds really good. Is it? Just asking for a friend.

  3. Came here for the discussion of the Mystery Flavor Frozen Fanta. Love the drink. Will be back there tomorrow.

  4. We all know that these hyped limited batch mystery flavours (of any product) must be just following suit of Airheads and Dum Dums, right?

  5. I’ve had the blue What the Fanta drink and key lime pie is my best guess for the flavor. I might have to give this mystery-flavored frozen Fanta a try, especially since it’s a reasonable price.

  6. I finally got the try the WTF slush today. Strawberry yogurt immediately came to mind with that noticeable yogurty tang and creaminess in the forefront.

    But like the reviewer Erin, I also picked up caramel notes that didn’t seem to go with the other flavors. So it’s definitely a headscratcher lol. Caramelized strawberry yogurt doesn’t quite sound right 😀
