Mirinda (Orange Type Soda) In Paris?

I don't know, but when I was in Neuchatel, Switzerland recently, I had Henniez orange soda and it was wonderful. If you can't find Mirinda, see if you can find Henniez. I think their factory is in France. Orangina is good, too - in Europe. The water and sweetening process is better there than in the US.

Scheraulei-
Thanks, We will look for Henniez. It's funny you mentioned Orangina. I purchased some locally (South Fl.) thinking of Mirinda and it was not so nice. If I see it in France, I'll try it.

Poochie, since it is made by Pepsi, most likely if they sell it in Paris you will find it in a market. They sell it in Sweden

The formula for Orangina is not the same in the US and France. Orangina is made with Corn Syrup in the US and with sparkling water in France. Its MUCH better in France IMHO.Its everywhere in France so you will have no problem finding it.

I find normal(yellow)Oragina too sweet for my taste. I like red Orangina (blood orange) which seems less sweet.

Mirinda, I had it in Japan a long time ago! Maybe I saw some vending machines with Mirinda in Brussel (or somewhere else, not sure). Have not seen one yet in France (I shop at French super markets occasionally.)

Thank You all for the info. It's kinda like the "Mirinda Code".
Scarlett- You gave me the best idea for my next trip... To travel all over the world and see which countries have Mirinda. Now all I need are those "6 magic" numbers for the lottery.
Sol Veracruzano- We were in Cancun this past spring. It never occurred to me to look for Mirinda.
MorganB and Kappa- DD and I will have Orangina "taste tests", US vs Europe (I'm sure Europe will win hands down) and orange vs red.

I saw Mirinda all over Croatia and Hungary too. Try looking for Fanta Orange which may taste similar, though the North America versions of these foreign drinks often don't taste nearly as nice as the original.
