Day 12: A World Of Food / WDW-40, 2016

You can’t visit Epcot without visiting Club Cool, where you can sample (for free!) Coca-Cola soft drinks from around the world, including the infamous Beverly! There were some changes to the drinks on offer this year, but that Beverly remains… ick! My absolute favourite is the drink from Japan, I wish you could buy bottles of it! I’m so glad that wasn’t one of the flavours to be changed! Steve enjoyed the Melon Fanta from Thailand. We are in unison that Beverly is the absolute worst!

Greece
Fanta has more than 90 distinct flavors available in more than 180 countries. It made its European debut in the 1940s and was introduced to the USA in 1960. Fanta Pineapple is caffeine-free and features a sweet pineapple taste.

Italy
Beverly, with its bitter flavor, is a popular non-alcoholic aperitif that is a traditional part of Italian refreshment cuture.

Thailand
Fanta is the number one soft drink of Thailand. With a fun melon flavor, this carbonated beverage is beloved in Thailand’s sunny, tropical climate.

Japan
Originally launched in Japan in 1992, VegitaBeta is a non-carbonated beverage with apricot and passion fruit flavors and is rich in beta-carotene that contributes to its unique yellowish-orange color.

South Africa
Orginally create in 1998, Bibo is a fruit flavored line of juice drinks popular in South Africa. The brand features fun characters such as Johnny orange, Taka Strawberry and Paolo Peach.

Zimbabwe
A raspberry flavored cream soda, Sparberry launched in African in 1955. It is exclusively available in southeast Africa.

Peru
Known as “The Taste of Peru,” this soda has an unusually sweet fruity flavor that many compare to the taste of liquid bubblegum. The name “Inca Kola” refers to the Quechua words for king and queen.

Brazil
Guarana Kuat is a guarana berry flavored soft drink first launched in Brazil in 1997. The word guarana comes from the Guarani word guara-ná, which translates to “fruit like the eyes of the people.”

We hopped on the Monorail back home to Poly, chilled out in our room for a bit and freshened up, before going to the beach to watch Wishes. That has been on my Disney Bucket List for years, and I’m so glad that we finally did it – especially now that Wishes has come to a end…

I’ll close out with photographs of the fireworks, which were made all the more interesting as we had the Electrical Water Pageant go past our Resort!
