Unusual banana flavoured soda....

"Zelita", banana- flavoured fizzy drink from Greece

On the last night of our holiday on Crete, we returned the quad bike we had hired and then walked back to our hotel via the village shop. I had noticed this odd-looking locally-made drink several times before, and decided to take the last opportunity to try it as I was intrigued by the idea of a banana fizzy drink.... I couldn't actually finish it all, it's so sweet; so I shared it with my husband. Although it tasted of chemical flavourings and evidently had no trace of real fruit in it, I have to say that after the first couple of sips it was actually quite palatable! Not a product I would recommend though, as there is absolutely nothing health-giving in it at all, but maybe it will be the inspiration for something like a more natural banana soda I could make at home??
