Some refer to this as the best non-alcoholic bottled drink in existence. It's carbonated, contains real orange pulp, and it usually comes in a strangely shaped little bottle. Part of the fun is that you don't get nearly enough. It's also fun to pronounce the name.
Though the word "Orange" is in the name, the juice itself is actually yellow.
Places to find it
- Aggie Student Store - It's quite cheap!
- JevanGray, you say they didn't have it? Unless you asked (and maybe even if you did), it might have been in the back. As far as I know, they hardly ever stock the front of the store. I will also ask The Kai about it.
- La Crêpe
- Many establishments in or of European origin carry this drink
- The Nugget
- The Posh Bagel
- The Junction
- Westlake Market
Things that taste great along side it
- Hmm... that's two things I love, but not together.
- Orangina + Strawberry Nutella crepe from La Crêpe = sugar loaded satisfaction
A few years ago I read somewhere that Coca Cola tried to buy Orangina but the French government would not allow it. -EdPereira
Well, there is its competitor (unless they're owned by the same company) aranciata. I always pronounce it Orang-eeee-na ... but sometimes I think it's fun to call it Orang-eye-na ... like the vagina of an orange. — S

2005-12-27 16:40:29 The thing about Aranciata is that it doesn't even have a twist-off bottle top. You have to get a bottle opener! — S
2006-07-07 01:55:48 I found this stuff at some little Mexican food place between here and Santa Cruz. Soooo goooood. And I don't even like orange juice. Also Safeway here sells this wonderous juice. —MichelleAccurso
2007-05-08 11:29:15 I think newsbeat sells it —StevenDaubert
2008-04-23 01:12:14 hehehe one case of orangina $23 USD 25 come per case. Larger sized bottles mind you, not the pinner ones. —StevenDaubert
2009-12-06 19:38:57 This stuff is the nectar of the gods. I've seen a perversion that comes in a can. Don't be taken in by it. It's the bottle or nothing. —CovertProfessor
2009-12-06 22:32:40 I find it lacking flavor compared to Organics Blood Orange soda. —hankim
2010-05-04 23:28:15 Wow! There's a daviswiki page about my favorite drink! Davis sure is progressive. How about a page for Nutella now? —LeeY
2010-05-05 21:36:35 Wow, why have I never heard of this until now? Sounds like something I would drink too much of… gotta get myself some of this sometime. —EBT
