Fresca Original Citrus is a grapefruit flavored zero calorie soda. Fresca was a favorite of President Lyndon B. Johnson. Famously, a million dollar question on “Who Wants to be a Millionaire?” asked: “For ordering his favorite beverages on demand, LBJ had four buttons installed in the Oval Office labeled ‘coffee,’ ‘tea,’ ‘Coke’ and what?” The answer, which the contestant was not able to provide, was Fresca.

The Fresca brand was first introduced in the U.S. in 1966, but Coca-Cola uses the brand differently in Mexico. In the U.S., it is a calorie free drink where in Mexico it is a regular citrus soda, sweetened with sugar. Have you had Mexican Fresca? Please let me know in the comments. Thank you for watching.
