Frankies is bringing 50s glam back with its retro style and old-school vibes.
If you jump at the chance to rock a red lip or winged eyeliner and love an excuse to party, keep an eye out for the Frankie’s van — which is hitting the streets of Gauteng this month.
Spot the van at markets and universities all over the province and join in the retro fun. You’ll have a chance to try the 8 delicious Frankie’s flavours and take fun pics with the 50s Frankie’s team. There are also spot prizes to be won, so keep those eyes peeled and follow @FrankiesSA on Twitter for more details.

(If you want the recipes for each dish, simply click on the pics and get down to planning your long weekend menu)
1. Traditional Ginger Beer + parma ham figs stuffed with blue cheese
These savoury and sweet morsels will disappear as soon as you bring them out — better make a double quadruple batch! The touch of heat in a Frankie’s Traditional Ginger Beer adds just the right amount of spice.
2. Old Style Root Beer + slow-cooked pork belly with maple roasted sweet potatoes
Just put this pork belly in the oven and get on with more important things (like binge-watching series…). What could be better for a chilled weekend lunch? Add a glass of Frankie’s Old Style Root Beer to complete your American-inspired meal.
3. Cloudy Lemonade + veg & feta phyllo pie
Planning a picnic? Then you definitely have to bring along a veg and feta pie to enjoy in the sunshine — and a bottle or 3 of Frankie’s Cloudy Lemonade, of course.
4. Cinnamon Cola + boerewors rolls 3 ways
Who says a braai has to be boring? Give your regular boerie roll an exciting twist with 3 gourmet toppings. And while you’re at it, pour yourself a glass of Frankie’s Cinnamon Cola — just as tasty as your usual cola, but with a twist of cinnamon.
5. Original Cream Soda + the ultimate chocolate creme egg cake
Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered for dessert too. This showstopping, head-turning, crowd-pleasing cake could only go with everyone’s old-school favourite — Frankie’s Original Cream Soda.
6. Dandelion & Burdock + a hot croissant ring cake
Forget hot cross buns, we’re switching things up with a giant hot croissant cake. A slice of this with the herbal tang of Frankie’s Dandelion & Burdock soda? Perfection!
7. Fiery Ginger Beer + the best ever Easter egg rocky road
Personally, we think we’ve saved the best for last: a no-bake Easter dessert that will have everyone coming back for more. But this treasure trove of treats comes with a warning: it’s seriously sweet. That’s why we paired it with Frankie’s Fiery Ginger beer — there’s nothing better to cut through all that sugar.
