|"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??
