I was invited recently to eat with a bunch of great food bloggers. Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond my control, I arrived about an hour late and didn’t really get a chance to take photographs, but I got to eat a lot of Balkan food! It was yummy and really cheap.
I did manage to get this meta photo of James (The Eaten Path) photographing the food. Funny. To me.
But the real reason I’m bothering to post this is because I.found.this. Holy crap.
When I walked in, I noticed the European Fanta bottles on the table, but didn’t know what the blue one was until Nommables yelled “Yvo!!! It’s ELDERFLOWER!!!” to which I responded immediately, “Shut UP!!!” because I’m super obsessed with elderflower right now. OMFG. Elderflower Fanta (Shokata)!!! It was a little sweeter than I’ve been making my own elderflower soda at home, with more lemon (it’s technically elderflower & lemon Fanta), but very delicious. At $2 a bottle, I bought another one to go home with me, and have been trying to find it for a reasonable price online… but have been unable to do so. Anyone know where I can get this? It’s “Fanta Shokata” – and according to my research, it’s a popular drink in Eastern Europe. I want to find more of this stuff!!! Help!
Fanta Shokata… come to NYC, please!
