Lilt axed after 48 years and will relaunch as new Fanta flavour

The new cans and bottles will roll into retailers on February 14

Coca-Cola has announced plans to scrap one of its most popular soft drinks after almost 50 years.

The tropical soft drinks brand Lilt will be scrapped and then relaunched as Fanta Pineapple & Grapefruit. 

‘Lilt fans may have spotted a gradual transition as the drink has made its way into the Fanta family over the past few months, with changes to packaging and logo,’ said Coca-Cola Europacific Partners.

‘Some have even hypothesised on social media that Lilt may be becoming part of the Fanta brand, and one went as far as producing their own news broadcast-style video.’
