Trivia: Created in the 1950s, Sprite was originally part of what line of drinks?
Correct Answer: Fanta
So why is this answer correct? : Now owned by Coca-Cola, Sprite was originally part of a different major drink brand: Fanta. It was called “Clear Lemon Fanta” and was developed in Germany in 1959. Two years later, it was introduced in the U.S. as “Sprite.” Heavily marketed to children and teens, the drink grew wildly popular after its 1961 introduction. By 1967, Sprite was available in 39 countries, and today, the lemon-lime flavored soda is sold in over 190 countries.
