'Angry Birds' soda has now expanded to Russia, Australia, New Zealand, Spain

In November, we reported that Finnish company Rovio, the makers of the Angry Birds franchise, released their own soda in the nation.
The soda was so popular, at least at launch, that it actually outsold behemoths Coke and Pepsi during its first month.

Apparently, the soda is successful enough that Rovio is now expanding the soda to four new nations.

Russia, Spain, Australia and New Zealand will be getting the drink in all flavors very soon. The current flavors are "Tropic (tropical fruit-flavor), Paradise (mandarin and pineapple), Lagoon (apple and pear), and Comet (orange and cola)."

When asked about the UK and US, Rovio CMO Peter Vesterbacka added: "Right now, we are looking at the U.K., so that should happen over the next few months. We want to find the right partners on the distribution side in various markets, so we will look to launch market by market. Sales in Russia are off to a really, really good start, which highlights how well the Angry Birds brand works with different products."
