Several years back the Taco Bell Fruistas were a series of drinks that were the answer to a long hot summer. Other places were beverages are sold or serve may call this same style of drinks freezes. These were sweet, cold, and icy drinks that were hard to resist. These frozen drinks came in several flavors, Strawberry Fruista Freeze, Strawberry Mango Frutista Freeze, and this Pina Colada Frutista Freeze version.
he concept behind this frozen drink is fairly simple, these are non-alcholic drinks that are part soda, part fruity syrup and lots of ice.
