Despite being in the eye of the storm lately
over the controversy surrounding benzoate
preservatives, favourite beverage brands,
Fanta and Sprite, appear to still enjoy the
confidence and trust of Nigerian consumers,
according to a CNN Poll.
Conducted by CNNAfrica via its twitter
handle @CNNAfrica, the poll had 61% of
Nigerians saying they weren’t bothered by
the court ruling and are still drinking Fanta
and Sprite compared to 39% who would
rather not for now. The poll which was open
for a limit period had 1,108 respondents,
170 retweets, 36 likes and 42 replies.
Interestingly, the numbers are a sharp
contrast to what critics and some media
headlines are reporting, speculating that
consumers are boycotting both drinks. The
CNN News sites even had a report too
suggesting this, shortly before the poll was
conducted. Talk about the power of brands…!
Here are some of the comments from the
voters. I promise they will leave you in
