Orangina - what type of beverage is it?

Hello.

Can anyone tell me what kind of beverage Orangina is, and if it is only available in France?

Thanks in Advance for your help.

Finally, a question I can answer!

Orangina is (I think) orange juice w/ some sort of bubbly water like soda water or seltzer water. It's delicious - very refreshing.

If you live in the States, I've seen it at gourmet food stores.

I guess that's kind of vague, but I hope that helps!

They sell it a Trader Joe's where I live (So. Cal.). My husband loves it.

Think Nehi, if you're old enough.

Orange-flavored carbonated beverage. Popular across much of Europe. Non-caffein I think. And indeed limited availability in the US.

It's one of those nasty drinks where half of it settles on the bottom.

It's truly awful.

It's available in most grocery stores in NYC and I've seen it at Krogers, Snooks, Cub etc in Illinois as well. Often in orange and blue cans instead of the gourd shaped bottle.

Wow, you guys are fast. Thanks for your replies. I'm leaving for Paris tomorrow, and I just ran across this beverage name in an article about Paris.

Merci!

Actually, I am pretty sure it's tangerine-based, not orange-based, or maybe a combination. Anyway, it's orange colored and carbonated, and it also comes now in France in Orangina Rouge, which is made with the juice of blodd oranges. I see Orangina all over the supermarkets here in the mid-Atlantic, but haven't come across Orangina Rouge yet.

I found Oragina to be almost sickeningly sweet (and I LOVE sweet foods/beverages!) My favorite beverage -- besides wine & coffee, of course -- in France is Volvic's lemon-flavored mineral water.

OK, this is right off the bottle in my fridge: Contains: carbonated water, high fructose corn syrup, orange juice concentrate, pure orange pulp, tangerine juice concentrate, natural orange flavors. You need to give the bottle a gentle shake to keep the pulp from staying on the bottom. It's great on a hot day, but the best thing about it is the shape of the small size bottle it comes in. It just wouldn't
be Orangina, to me, from a can.

You can buy it at the supermarket here in Connecticut. It's like a thin orange juice very lightly carbonated. I kind of like it.
