Price:- I paid 99p at the 99p store for a 1.5 litre bottle.
Each 250ml serving contains
7 up is a delicious blend of lemon and lime and I must say I don't chose this drink enough. I've always been more of a lemonade drinker than a coke drinker but I tend to skip past 7up until I was in the 99p store the other day and it was in there. I picked up a bottle knowing I liked it from previous occasions when I've drank it.
I think this drink has now become my all time favourite I love it. It is very refreshing. It comes in a green bottle and if you haven't tried it I demand that you do so right now and if you don't like it I'll give you your money back ( I won't but that's how certain I a. That you'll enjoy it) you can pick up this drink at any supermarket and I'm sure it's a reasonable price. I know that is also comes in cans. I think that children will also enjoy it and it'll be a lot better for them than a lot of fizzy drinks
I have been drinking this alot lately because I have saw a deal on them. You can get 4 250ml bottle in Poundland for one pound which is quite a deal which has made me stock up on them over this holiday period.
Carbonated Water , Sugar , Citric Acid , Natural Lemon and Lime Flavouring , Malic Acid , Acidity Regulator (Sodium Citrate)
7up is quite a fizzy drink and sometimes when I drink it I feel as though the fizz takes over the natural taste of the actual drink. The drink itself has a strong lemony lime sort of taste and is quite bubbly when it is in my mouth. Because the drink has is so bubbly I have noticed that The only time I really ever taste the lemony lime flavour is when the drink enters my mouth. When ready to swallow and the bubbles kick in the drink loses it's flavour and tastes like a mouth full of bubbles. Once I swallow the drink and the taste of bubbles has gone it leaves my mouth with a lemon after taste and my breath smelling of lemon also. I generally do like the taste of 7up but when it is really fizzy with lots of bubbles it does make it less nice to drink but this is not always just depends were I buy it from.
7up for me doesn't really have a distinct taste. I find when drinking 7up there are many similar drinks out there so for me that alone makes the drink nothing exciting when drinking it.
My opinion of this drink is that it would be much more desirable if it wasn't so bubbly because the flavour itself is nice it's just those times when it's too much fizz/bubbles that make it a inconsistent drink. Being inconsistent in taste is not good because you can't always guarantee when buying 7up it will be the quality you want.
The smell of 7up is very much like lemon but at the same time when smelling it you can smell how fizzy the drink is going to be. This is not always but it depends on the retailer you got it from but definitely with the poundland ones I have been drinking recently they smell really fizzy. The smell is not strong but I noticed if I burp after drinking it the smell is like a lemon outburst.
Well usually when I get drinks I want something that will quench my thirst and is refreshing and this is definitely none of the above. In all honesty 7up is a nice drink but nothing special and the real reason I drink it so much these days is because I get it cheap but it's not really something I would go out my way for. Within a short while after drinking this drink I need more so in the end I do end up drinking more than a better quality drink.
Poundland - 4x250ml =£1
Asda - 2ltr = £1.98
Corner Shop - 500ml =£1.10
Although if you calculate the price it works out the same to buy a 2ltr bottle of 7up as the Poundland bottle it's much more convenient to get them from Poundland because they are in handy small bottles. 2ltr bottles also tend to get flat quickly because they are opened in my house constantly.
I am a regular drinker of 7up. When eating out this is my choice of soft drink, it helps clean your palate. Tesco sell a 1lt bottle for 69p and a six pack of cans for £3.19 which is about average and on par with other branded soft drinks. It comes in dark green bottles and cans so is easily recognisable on the shelf.
7up is a lemon and lime flavoured carbonated drink made by Britvic. It's made with natural flavourings and you can tell that this is the case as it doesn't taste artificial. You can really taste the lemon and lime but just the right amount I don't find it tart or strong flavoured- it's quite mild. I love the way 7up fizzes and sparkles when you pour it into a glass, these bubbles last while you drink it.
It's a clear drink like lemonade rather than coloured with green colourings like most lemon and lime drinks, it's free from colours and preservatives and is also caffeine free- so that's good. It's a great alternative to lemonade, more refreshing too
It's full of sugar although I don't find it too sweet as the citrus cuts through it. The calories are high- 240 per serving but I have to add that 7up is one of the only brands of fizzy soft drinks that has a diet version that actually tastes nice- very similar to the original.
I find it's a good mixer, it makes a particularly nice shandy or alternatively just a dash to make a lager top.
Definitely a favourite of mine and I'd say the best lemon and lime drink on the market.
Would I recommend it- Yes
In all honesty, 7up is not one of those drinks I have terribly often and I am quite unlikely to purchase. I always prefer just simple lemonade (usually as a mixer!) and I'm not fussy for it to be of a well known brand but normally when in restaurants they will have 7up or Sprite on the menu and yesterday 7up was the option.
It is a lemon and lime flavoured soft drink, from the Britvic but is actually owned by Dr Pepper in the US. Pouring the drink (I was given it in a can and a glass with ice to pour it into) it is a clear colour, which fizzes up quite nicely but not over the top to create too much gas like some cheap brands of lemonade I have had in the past. It definitely has the unique twist in that it does taste just like lemonade but the lime flavour is definitely intertwined in this drink and you can definitely taste both fruits (yes lime is a fruit!) which compliment each other fantastically. It has a crisp sharp taste where by the citric aspect of these fruits comes through in the drink but not in anyway sour so the drink maintains it's lovely flavour and isn't overbearing.
The taste really quenches my thirst, and one glass was more than (330ml in the can) was more than enough for me to last throughout my meal. A big benefit of 7up is definitely that it is caffeine free so much more healthy but don't drink this as an energy drink to get you throughout the day! I really like this drink, and if I was more a fan of lemonade or lemon and lime based drinks I probably would drink it more, but as I prefer more juices and squash this is nice enough for a treat here and there.
This is a great summer drink that's sweet, refreshing and light. I don't drink it that often as it's quite high in sugar and calories (nearly 150 calories in one 330ml can!). I do tend to drink it more often in the summer though when i'm hot and need something fizzy to cool myself down. It tastes even better when it's been chilled before drinking.
I would describe the taste of 7up to be quite sweet and citrusy. It tastes very much like lemon and lime, which is a nice change if you usually drink Red Bull - like myself! The citrus taste is great and it can be drunk with or without food. I usually drink mine without food though as it can sometimes leave me feeling bloated as it's really fizzy. I tend to drink it slowly and savour it!
The fizz in the drink lasts for a couple of days in the fridge - so if you opt for the two litre bottle it will last you a while before it runs out of fizz, which is another good thing about it. You can also add fresh slices of lemon and/ or lime to the drink for extra flavour - although it still tastes great as it is. It is nice with Vodka though!
I would recommend this drink to everyone. It's widely available to buy and it's cheap too.
You can also opt for the sugar free version if you're watching your waistline, although it doesn't taste quite the same so I don't buy that version!
A great summer drink.
There is a huge range of fizzy soft drinks on the market with all sorts of weird and wonderful flavours but, being a bit of a traditionalist 7UP is definitely one of my favourites as it contains two tangy bursts of citrus that complement each other, lemon and it's trusted companion, lime. It has been around for a long time too, apparently it was created in 1929 by Charles Leioer Griggs just before the Wall Street Crash and until 1950 contained lithium citrate which is a mood stabilising drug! The strange name came about as Charles had such a cumbersome long name for his top formula that the last 7 ingredients were used to give it the name 7UP!
It is easy to spot on the shelves as the bottles and cans are bright green in colour with the white and red 7UP logo easily spotted on the front. It is available in different sizes from cans and bottles at 330ml up to 2lt plastic bottles. Checking on the prices in my local supermarket the 2litre costs 1euro, approx 85pence and a pack of 6x33ml cans costs 2euros approx 1.70pounds. The smaller bottles come in 500ml and 330ml which is the one that I am drinking at the moment. The bottle is slightly waisted to make it easy to grip and has a bright green screw on top with the 7UP logo printed on it.
The 7UP Experience.
The drink is completely clear and nice and fizzy, there is a definite lemony smell to it and the taste although sweet it does have a lemony lime flavour to it. Some people do find it too sweet but on a hot, sunny day, (remember them!) it is just the thing with ice in a tall glass and a slice of lemon if you are feeling posh. Besides the taste, the reason that I prefer 7UP to other soft, fizzy drinks is because of the things it does NOT contain. I know sounds a bit daft but, it does not contain, colour, artificial preservatives nor caffeine. The ingredients it does contain are carbonated water,sugar,citric acid, natural flavourings, malic acid and acidity regulator (sodium citrate). The thing to keep in mind though is the amount of sugar it contains, a 330ml can or bottle will give you a whopping 41% of your daily recommended amount of sugar,!
Even though I was taken aback by the huge amount of sugar I shall drink it as an occassional treat and keep the Dentists in business.I think parents would consider the amount of sugar it contains before buying a large amount for their children.
3 stars from me because of the sugar content.
One bottle I have says distributed by Britvic and another says part of the Pepsi Cola group, confusing!
Readily available in supermarkets and other shops, store in a cool place out of direct sunlight away from aggresive odours.
Thanks for reading my review which may also be posted on Ciao under splishsplash.
I do like the odd fizzy drink but I am one of the few people that does not really enjoy cola and tend to opt for other fizzy drinks instead. One fizzy drink that I really like is 7up, I know this is really just a branded lemonade but I really like the taste as it contains a hint of lemon and lime which I find makes it a little different from plain lemonade.
The only downside to 7up is the price as with it being a branded soft drink it is much more expensive. A single 500ml bottle costs around £1.00 in the majority of shops. You can also buy 7up in cans and larger sharing bottles. Now I know that fizzy drinks are not very good for you and I do try and purchase the sugar free versions when I can. But a few days ago I popped into my local Tesco store and they had the 1 litre bottles of 7up on a half price offer for just £0.67, they didn't have the sugar free version so thought I would be a little naughty and buy this one.
The 7up comes in a transparent green plastic bottle with screw cap lid. The bottle has a plastic wrapper around it which contains all the necessary information about the drink on.
Obviously full sugar fizzy drinks are not that good for you as they are full of sugar which is not only bad for the waistline but your teeth too. A 100ml of 7up contains the following nutritional information:
- Calories - 41
- Protein - nil
- Sugars - 10.6g
- Fat - nil
- Sodium - trace
One thing that impressed me about the 7up was the fact that I had around 4 separate servings over around 3 days and it actually remained quite fizzy. Some fizzy drinks seem that once you open them they lose their fizz almost immediately but the 7up kept quite well and even on the last serving had a good amount of bubbles still present.
7up does taste a little like lemonade but has the addition of a lemon and lime flavouring. The taste is rather sweet but quite refreshing too especially if served ice cold. I was a little disappointed to see on the ingredients listing that it does not contain actual lemon and lime juice but just flavouring but maybe that has something to do with Britvic wanting to keep the clearness of the drink rather than it being cloudy from adding fruit juice to it. I find that 7up also makes a nice mixer for alcoholic drinks too especially vodka as it is a little like drinking vodka, lemonade and lime without having to add the lime separately.
In my opinion 7up is expensive for what it is and I will only purchase it when on offer as although it does taste nice it is just branded lemonade!
Despite the new can print (09/12/11) which is a bit weak, the drink remains a classic.
I can remember at the age of 6 travelling on a plane and constantly asking for refills of 7-up. The taste remains as sweet yet refreshing 30 years later.
There is Sprite of course as a competitor, but that is too sweet, and 7-UP wins hands down.
As with most soft drinks, you can but 7-Up in cans and bottles and each can come as a single, pack of 4,6, or multi-packs of 12,18 or 24.
Currently Morrisons has 3x4 packs for £1.99 - £1 per 6 cans. Nice deal, so we have stocked up massively.
Calories are in keeping with any other sugared soft drink, but you can get Sprite Zero, which is as refreshing but as with diet drinks, it is just the wrong side of sweetly pleasant.
I would suspect that few few people in the UK have not tried 7-Up but if not, you are missing a treat.
I like to eat and drink quite healthily so I rarely have fizzy drinks in the house, however if I ever buy a fizzy drink whilst out and a bout it's nearly always 7up. This 7up is a lemon and lime flavoured fizzy drink. It is made by Britvic soft drinks and has been around for years. I don't drink much lemon and lime drinks to be honest, but this drink is so nice when your really thirsty and just want something sweet and refreshing!
It is great to have to drink on a hot summers days, as it cools you down and just tastes so refreshing. The flavour of this drink is quite sweet, but it is not too much. You can taste more lemon than you can lime, I never knew it had lime in it until I actually properly read the can! I just always thought it was lemonade!
This drink comes in so many different bottles. It comes in individual cans, multipacks of cans, bottles all different sizes! It is just about the same price as most fizzy drinks such as coca cola, pepsi, it is not expensive. The colour of the bottle or can is always a deep green, which is very easy to pick out on the shelf.
I don't drink this all the time as it does have a lot of sugar in it, just like most fizzy drinks do, roughly around 140 calories per 330ml can. This drink does come in a sugar free version, but I have tasted this and it just doesn't quite taste right! I never like any sugar free fizzy drinks!
These are fine as a treat though, as long as you are not having them all the time, as the sugar would rot your teeth! They are great for a nice refreshing drink or as a nice change if you usually have coke all the time.
I cant drink this flavour with a meal though, it is very sweet and I just don't find it goes well with anything! However it is nice on its own, and if it didn't have all the sugar in it and still tasted the same I'd buy it every week!
It is rare that I will allow my son to have fizzy pop because I don't really buy it in at home...unless I am thinking of having a few drinks and will buy some coke as a mixer. However, sometimes I will allow my son to choose a fizzy drink to have just because I don't want him growing up being banned from having something and therefore perhaps seeing it as something to crave in later life. We decided to have a picnic at the park during half term on the only real nice day that we had and so we headed to tesco to pick up things for our picnic. My son chose a 500ml bottle of 7 UP as his drink and so we agreed that we would share that one as I think 500ml is quite a lot of fizzy pop for him to drink.
The 7 UP came in a green plastic bottle in which you can see the liquid through. It has a curved bottle which makes it easy for hands to hold it whilst having a drink. The bottle has a label around the middle with the product name and pictures of sliced lemons and limes. The label does the job of making the product look quite refreshing and perhaps a drink for the summer months. The drink is made by Britvic soft drinks Ltd and so it is from a trusted manufacturer in my opininon. The drink cost around £1.08 from tesco but was on a two bottles for £1.50 offer when we bought it.
7 UP is a lemon and lime flavoured fizzy drink and upon opening the bottle you can immediately see how fizzy the drink is at the bubbles fizz right up to the top of the bottle. My son said he could feel the fizz without even having a drink inititally! The drink has a nice refreshing lemon taste to it but for me it is a bit too fizzy at first and feels a bit like a sparkling water rather than a soft drink. We found that after the bottle had been opened for a couple of hours that the drink became flat in the bottle despite the lid being on but for me this was a bonus as I enjoyed it much more without the constant stream of bubbles!
I think the drink would possible be nice mixed with some alcoholic drinks as an alternative to plain lemonade perhaps.
The bottle claims that the products is free from colours, caffeine and preservatives and so it sounds like quite a good fizzy drink and when I looked at the information telling you the amounts of sugars and things I was initially quite surprised that there wasn't more calories in the drink, although I was shocked at the amount of sugars in the drink. I was more shocked though when I realised that the information was based on 250ml of the drink rather than the full 500ml in the bottle which I thought was slightly misleading! Despite the drink being free from colours and things it actually contains a massive 53g of sugar per 500ml serving and this is 58% of an adult's recommended daily amount! I find this quite staggering really and it is not something that I will continue to let my son have to be honest. I know all fizzy drinks aren't great for you, but this really surprised me. There are 206 calories per 500ml too.
All in all I am not a huge fan of this soft drink really and the amount of sugar in it seals the deal for me and so I won't be buying it again for those reasons.
Thank you for reading my review!
Get some Lemon and Lime, add some fizz, what have you got? 7up. I love this drink. It represents Britvic's offering to the lemonade market to clash with rivals Sprite and one thing you can usually say before you even open the bottle is that it is very often a lot cheaper than their opponent. You can a lot of the time find the cans in poundland on a 4 for a £1 deal or the 500ml bottles on a 2 for £1 deal! Even in Tesco you can buy a 4 can pack for a £1. Sprite can only offer 6 for about £2.50!
Where sprite offers a much crisper taste compared to 7up you get a much less harsh drink when drinking Britvic's offering. There is not as much from 7up however this seems to make the drink a lot smoother and much more satisfying. The lemon and lime go hand in hand to make a very refreshing drink and you can actually taste the fruit much more than in other offerings. Best served cold!
I never used to be a fan of 7Up and I'm not really sure why as since starting to drink it in the past 6 months, I have found that I like it a lot more than Pepsi or Coke. I bought a six pack of these before Christmas and I have only just about finished them. I think I paid about £2.59 for them, which seem to be the average price for 6 packs of most soft drinks nowadays.
Each can contains 330ml of the Lemon and Line Flavoured soft drink and it is contained in a can that measures 11cm tall x 5cm in diameter. Each can is mainly green in colour an has pictures of lemon and lime slices throughout the background of the can. The front of the can has the big 7Up logo in white and red and on the otherside of it there is all the usual nutritional and ingredient information.
On opening the can, you are met with a sweet smelling drink that reminds me slightly of lemons. The drink is clear in colour and slightly fizzy. The drink has a taste that does remind me of lemons and limes quite well but it is not too bitter which is quite nice. I had always expected this drink to be quite bitter before trying it and now I have had it I have found that it isn't. I like how the taste is sweet but still has a hint of the lemon and lime flavours in it. I don't find that it is too fizzy in small sips, however I find that if you drink a lot in one go then it makes me quite gassy.
Overall as a drink, I find it quite refreshing and as I don't drink it that often it is a nice treat every now and then. As it is a soft drink, I do not expect it to be too healthy, however on looking at the nutritional information, I have found that it only contains 135 calories, 0g of fat and trace salt. However, it does contain a lot of sugar per can as it has 35g per can, which is 39% of your recommended daily allowance!
I would most probably buy this drink again as it is a nice treat every now and then and it does taste very nice. I am going to give it 3/5 as the high sugar content can make it bad for your teeth if you drink too much. If the sugar content was lower then I would be able to rate it higher and I may also be tempted to drink it more often.
Thanks for reading.

Most people when they think of 7 Up will think of the classic lemon and lime flavour although many other flavours are available it is the lemon and lime version I will be reviewing today. I'm not a fan of lemonade on the whole, I will drink it if there's nothing else but it is not something that would be my first choice of beverage. I must admit that 7 Up is a lot nicer than most lemonades to me, I think it's the lime flavour added to the lemon that does it. As with most fizzy drinks you can get a regular version and a diet version.
I find 7 Up to be quite sweet which is what I like but will probably not be to everyone's taste, the flavour is a good mix between the lemon and lime without being over powering. It is refreshing and not sickly or sticky like some drinks are and I find it quenches my thirst nicely. It is fizzy and bubbly and I find even after opening the bubbles stay in the drink for a long amount of time. 7 Up makes a change from regular lemonade as it offers that subtle lime tang and it offers a tasty flavour with no caffeine.
7 Up is available in most shops and it comes in cans and bottles, the regular version is quite calorific with 100 calories per 240 ml serving. If it's the calories that bothers you, you could always try the diet version which offers the same great taste. I find that a 500 ml bottle usually costs around 99p from most shops but I expect if you shop around you'll find it cheaper.
I don't drink much lemonade. It's not very exciting and doesn't have the same appeal as other soft drinks. I'd rather have squash - no fizz and more taste.
We do keep lemonade in the house, though and we recently bought a couple of 2l bottles of 7 Up when it was on offer in Asda. It's a lemon and lime flavoured drink, comes in a nice clear bottle and, in comparison with other budget brands, it looks the part with the familiar 7 Up branding prominent.
Taste-wise, it is less impressive in that it tastes too fizzy and leaves a bit of a chemical aftertaste. The manufacturers seem to make a big deal of it being 'ridiculously bubbly', but I think excess fizz detracts from the taste and just makes you belch....or worse. I can't drink too much of the stuff at any given time so the bottle lasts a good while - it's worse even than gassy keg beer.
Originally marketed as a medicinal cure for hangovers, the name first given to it by its inventor in 1929 was considered to be too much of a mouthful so it was changed to the much simpler 7 Up, spawning all manner of Snow White related inappropriate humour.
A 250 ml serving of 7 Up is 103 calories and contains an incredible 26.5g of sugar. In addition to carbonated water and sugar, it contains Citric Acid, Flavouring, Malic Acid and Sodium Citrate. You can also buy a low calorie variant with only 5 calories and no sugar at all.
A 1.5l bottle is now 2 for £2 at Asda. To me, for what it is, even the offer price delivers very poor value. I've tasted some own brand lemonades that are much nicer and much cheaper.
7up is a nice drink but I only have it occasionally because it is full of sugar and has a lot of calories in.
This drink comes in lots of different sizes. You can buy tiny cans, regular sized cans, individual bottles and large bottles so there is something to suit everyone's needs. It is quite expensive to buy though. Even the large bottles in the supermarket usually cost me at least £1.50 which is a lot of money when the good supermarket brands taste as good but are cheaper.
It is a nice tasting drink though. It is a lemon and lime flavour although the lemon flavour is stronger than the lime so really it is more of a lemonade with a hint of lime. It is a nice combination of flavours and is very refreshing especially when drunk ice cold because it really brings out the zesty flavour of the lemon. It is very sweet and sugary and doesn't taste artificial.It is the perfect drink for a hot day as it really quenches your thirst. I also find it a nice drink to go with a meal as the flavour is not overpowering. I think it is also good as a mixer as it goes nicely with vodka, rum and also wine.
It also retains is fizz well because even the day after I have opened the bottle it is still nice and fizzy and still tastes great.
I would recommend 7up and would drink it more if it had less calories.
In 1929, a US competition to find the tastiest lemon and lime drink was won by CL Grigg. Although his product - 'Bib-label Lithiated Lemon Lime Soda' was delicious, the name stuck in people's throats and so it was renamed 7UP - after the seven main ingredients in the drink.
