    Unknown 'Hartwall Limonadi Omena' .

    Wikipedia says :
    Hartwall Ltd is a beverage company based in Helsinki, Finland.

    It was founded in 1836.

    Its drinks range includes Jaffa, Pommac and Novelle waters.

    The company also owns the licence for manufacturing and selling PepsiCo's Pepsi,
    7 Up and Mountain Dew brands in Finland.
    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hartwall

    I prefer Coca Cola over Pepsi because Coke has 10.6gr sugar / 100 ml
    and Pepsi 11gr / 100 ml .

    I prefer the cheapo-colas from the REWE chain though, since they have just 9.6gr / 100 ml sugar;
    as in 'Ja!' and 'Penny' Cola.

    I prefer a Mezzo-Mix-Style Orange-Cola-mix though,
    and on hot days Sprite-Style citron-lemonade.

    Mountian Dew I drink occasionally, since I abandoned
    these taurin-lemonades as these Red-Bull lemonades
    and coffee causing headaches to me.
    Mk 10:18 What do you call me a good master, no-one is good .

    Yup. Finns have never been good to marketing their products (that would need more extrovert people). Even Swedes are much better on that.
    For example this one which they developed to Helsinki 1952 Olympic Games. It could succeed well (as many foreigners likes it too).



    Finns tends to think: it's is simply customer's own shame (or stupidity) if he go and choose some worse products (and not faults of bad marketing/bad sales persons).

    Tired

    The Finish Uncyclopedia has a probably funny page,
    but the Finish language is pretty unique and absolutely
    incompatible with any of the Germanic languages,
    so I am absolutely not capable to understand anything there :
    Kuvasta voitte havaita Hartwall Limonadi Omenan nimimuutoksen,
    sekä sen että aluksi Hartwall Limonadi Päärynän ja Hartwall Limonadi Omenan etikettien ympyrät olivat keltaisen värisiä,
    mutta Hartwall Limonadi Vadelman ympyrä oli vaaleanpunaisen värinen.
    http://hiki.pedia.ws/wiki/Hartwall_Limonadi_Päärynä

    My attempt on translation:
    Curvy wasteful white habits Hartwall Lemonade Orange non-smalltaken,
    says senior after allclosing Hartwall Lemonade Pissonyou there Hartwall Lemonade Orange emblem aroundfrighted only coldice value,
    must Hartwell Lemonade Waterman aroundfright(change) only choice-piss-on therein .

    Hopefully I did not translate too wrong. .. :-D

    From picture you can see the name change of Harwall Omena lemonadi, and at first the labels circles of Harwall lemonade pearls and Harwall lemonade Apples were yellow colored, but Harwall lemonade raspberry's circle was pink colored.

    And what does 'Omena' mean , then ?

    Orange ?
    Is that a Mezzo-Mix of coke and orange lemonade,
    as the liquid's colour suggests ?

    Or is this yellow ball a citron ?

    Or is it a malt beer https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malt_beer ?

    Yes, YOU Finns start a thread somewhere with a headline
    that does not contain the object of the thread,
    pull in a picture from elsewhere , which may be changed or
    the PATH to it may change,
    and therefore might be gone in a few years,
    do not write at least some short description of the object,
    and just a short sentence saying the object had been introduced
    one year before the start of the war of 1941 .

    Hmmm....
    Apple Germ. Apfel
    Orange Germ. Apfelsine , but orange being used nowerdays much more

    Why has it a black-brown colour ?
    Is it rotten apple that becomes first orange because of iron oxide ?
    Is it caramel heated sugar ?

    Nope, such an introduction does not sell;
    I would drink it as last resort in an Arab desert,
    but would smell first, because it looks like Arabian crude oil .. :hihi

    I don't think they have ever tried to sell it outside .... but nope it is very good. Better than any cola (Coke, Pepsi, Schweppes) or any Jaffa, Fanta or Sprite etc.

    It's old recipe, having quite low carbonic acid content and bit like juice kind limonadi.

    Fassbrause Almdudler Apple Beer

    In Germany in the region of the capital Berlin,
    there might be a similar lemonade called 'Fassbrause' :
    Fassbrause , literally "keg soda", is a non-alcoholic or alcoholic (depending on the brand) German drink
    made from fruit and spices and malt extract,
    traditionally stored in a keg.

    Fassbrause is a speciality of Berlin,
    where it is sometimes called Sportmolle.
    (Molle used to be a term for "beer" in the Berlin dialect.)

    Fassbrause is about the same color as some beers,
    and usually tastes like apples.

    The taste is strongly reminiscent of the Austrian drink, Almdudler,
    except that Fassbrause is less sweet, and not quite as spicy.
    ...
    Another non-alcoholic variant has been produced in the United States since the 1960s under the name "Apple Beer".
    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fassbrause

    I do not know any people drinking much Fassbrowsn or Almdudeler.
    Fassbrause I see occasionally in shops in my area,
    but only in larger grocery stores.

    In such case you should start to sell it as Helsingforser Fassbrause,
    or Lappland-Dudler;
    maybe such associations would stick to people here.
    Mk 10:18 What do you call me a good master, no-one is good .
