I have started a new job recently and have been find it hard to be quite stimulated at my desk for 7 hours a day as I have transitioned from working Part time! I have also been ill a bit recently so whilst I have not been eating much, I have been drinking loads and today I decided to wander down to the canteen to find something refreshing to drink that would liven my afternoon up a bit!
Appletiser advertised as 100% apple juice that is gently sparkling. I bought mine in a seductive matte green can which was 70p for a 330ml. It does look quite appealing, and feels rather high end and luxurious other than bog standard can drinks out there.
The drink itself is very refreshing, it has a lovely authentic apple taste (not as authentic as freshly squeezed apple juice) but it is a bit more on the lighter side compared to drinks like apple tango which are quite similar. It doesn't taste as sugary, and it really does quench my thirst as a little sip goes a long way and I am not constantly gulping it down. There is no over carbonation (ie not overly fizzy) and it doesn't give me gas or burp a lot so it is most certainly worth the extra value over cheap fizzy apple flavoured drinks.
When poured it is slightly more clearer and has a complexion to apple juice, unlike apple tango which is a heavily dark brown so I find this drink does not discolour my pee too much! One negative that I certainly would mention is that it is EXTREMELY high in sugar, at a 37% sugar content which is so sky high! I certainly only drink it in moderation as a treat now and again, but if it weren't for this aspect it would be so much more enjoyable.
Overall I do like this drink, and would recommend it to others, but only as a treat every so often, I definitely wouldn't advise it for daily consumption!
I absolutely love this product, it's possibly my number one favourite soft drink.
Compared to 'apple flavoured tango' it tastes much more natural, with a genuine apple taste similar to that of some very good quality english cider.
It's not too fizzy, it hardly fizzes at all when you open the can, but you can definitely feel the bubbles in your mouth- and you won't get any 'problems' that can arrise from drinking pop that's too fizzy.
As great as this tastes it's still 37% of your recommended daily allowance of sugar, so make sure you don't enjoy more than one a day! It's also strange that this product writes on the front '1 of your five a day', as it's not really a healthy product at all!
The can looks really nice and classy, like a home made product, so it was surprising to see 'coca cola' written on the label.
Overall I really like this product, and although it definitely is full of sugar it tastes great and it's no worse than other fizzy drinks.
Appletiser is a refreshing apple flavour non-alcoholic sparkling juice drink. It is a nice sweet fizzy drink but it is packaged, marketed and priced as a more sophisticated alternative to standard fizzy drinks such as sprite, tango, fanta etc. I really like the taste of the drink and often order it when out and about however a very similar and cheaper drink can be achieved by mixing apple juice and lemonade yourself at home.
It is usually sold in small (275ml) or large (750ml) green glass bottles. I have also sometimes seen it for sale in 330ml cans. It can be bought in supermarkets as well as in a variety of pubs and restaurants and is quite easy to come by. Usefully the bottles are screw cap so a bottle opener is not required.
According to the manufacturer's website, 150ml of Appletiser counts as one of your five a day. And, in addition to the apple flavour, there are three other flavours available which include Peartiser, Mango, Apple & Mandarin Fruitiser and Pomegranate & Raspberry Fruitiser. One downside for me is that Appletiser and Peartiser both come packaged in green bottles and at a glance they look very similar so in the past I have accidentally bought the pear flavour instead of the apple as intended which was annoying. I am sure I am not the only person to have done this.
So, in summary, Appletiser is a nice tasting drink but quite expensive for what it is and easy to make yourself.
Regular readers of my reviews will be fully aware that I am a great fan of fizzy pops - all sorts of fizzy pops. However, if you are looking for something slightly more grown up and sophisticated, I would like to suggest Appletiser. I have only just recently discovered this 'posh pop' as my little lad likes to call it. We buy ours from Tesco's and it comes in a nice glass bottle with a twist off cap, as opposed to the usual cheap plastic bottles we usually buy our pop in.
Appletiser also come sin a pear flavour, pay names Peartiser, but actually, we prefer the apple flavoured one. The bottle sizes are large and contain 750ml of fizz and are a deep shade of green. The last time we bought this it was on offer - two bottles for £4, which is pretty good, as they normally retail anywhere between £2.50 to £2.99 a bottle.
We think this is a healthier way of drinking fizzy pop in our house because there is no added sugar to these drinks and also they contain 100% fruit juice, which was a pleasant surprise when we discovered this. The drink is fizzy, though I have to say it is perhaps not as gassy as the likes of the cheap lemonade and coke we buy from the supermarket as a general rule.
The taste of this drink is that of delicate flavoured apple. It is definitely a drink which is aimed more at adults than at children and is a nice alternative if you have guests who do not drink alcohol. The little lad still loves this drink though and me and his mum feel happier giving him this than we do the likes of lemonade or coca cola drinks.
It's a great refreshing taste and delicious when served ice cold straight from the fridge. We cannot find fault with it and really recommend it.
Appletiser, my mum introduced me to this drink after she had dinner round her own dads and along with the usual bottles of wine people take to the table when company is there, she see a green bottle labelled appletiser, so when i had dinner round my mums not so long ago she poured me a glass of it to go with our pork chops.
Appletiser comes in different sized bottles and the prices vary considerably depending on where you go to buy it, small bottles being priced at around 99p to the slightly bigger bottles costing as much as £2.50 !!! yes not a cheap soft drink.
I dont drink alcohol so im forever trying to find an adult type soft drink that can accompany with dinner either at home or when im socialising as cola and other fizzy drinks get boring for me in the end, and i dont always want a tea and coffee. I found appletiser perfect for my needs. The only downside for me is the cost of this product, i dont know where they warrant such a price for fizzy apple juice but there you go , the Bottle is attractive and looks grown up and smart.
The label clearly states that this is made from 100% apple juice and what is handy about this product is a small glass counts towards your 1 of 5 a day which i thought was a hidden bonus !!!
What impressed me about this drink its nice and sweet without it being sickly. sometimes with other soft drinks like J20 for me they are just too sweet sometimes. and appletiser wasnt heavy so i was able to eat and enjoy my meal whilst sipping my drink (another bonus)
I cant really fault this product other than the price range of it, being one of the most expensive soft drinks i have found yet !. but as a once in a while treat i will certainly be going back for more. Great for special occasions when out round peoples houses or a nice sunday dinner of pork. I found this product fantastic with chicken or pork chops.
Appletiser is one of my favourite drinks at the moment. Its refreshing taste and fruitiness give it an edge over other carbonated apple drinks such as appleade and apple Tango. In my local supermarket it is sold in the adults soft drinks section along with products such as Shloer and J2O. I love fizzy drinks and also apple juice, so this is a marriage made in heaven for my tastebuds!
Appletiser have a range of different flavours. There is the original Appletiser flavour and also Peartiser. Then we have two cracking flavours in Mango,Apple and Mandarin Fruitiser and also Pomegranate and Raspberry Fruitiser. With a range of varieties available there is something for all tastes, my favourite being the original apple flavoured Appletiser. The drinks are sold in 750ml glass bottles and retail at around £2.50-£3. The Appletiser variety is also available in cans if you look hard enough for them. I think the taste is much better from a bottle for some reason, though. The glass bottles have screw-top lids to maintain that refreshing fizzyness. The bottle is green and contains 100% fruit juice. There is no added sugar here and according to their website a 150ml serving counts as one of your 5-a-day. The drink smells of apples obviously, but the scent is subtle and the taste delicate. The drink isn't too fizzy, either. I think this is more suited to the adult market because of this and I find it doesn't leave me needing to burp so much!
Appletiser has no added sugar, but it does have naturally occuring sugars which come from the fruit. The figures below are based on a 275ml serving, although it is worth noting that to count towards your 5-a-day you need drink just 150ml.
The drink can be served with anything really. I love to drink it in the Summer in the garden over ice, but it is equally as refreshing at room temperature any time of the year. The 750ml bottle doesn't last long when I am around as I love the taste. The refreshing flavour may not suit everyone, and although it is not aimed at the young market I would be more than happy to recommend it for all age groups.
Appletiser is one of those lovely drinks that is really refreshing and gorgeous to drink on a hot summery day - and to me it always makes me feel like I'm having a non-alcoholic glass of wine because it has that kind of taste to it. It comes either in a glass bottle or in a typical drinks can. I tend to buy it in the cans because I generally think that the fizz tends to be kept in better and therefore it's more refreshing. I recently picked up a multi-pack containing 6 x 330ml cans from Sainsbury's for £4.28 - which equates to 71p per can. I think that this is fairly expensive for a multi-packed canned drink, but it wouldn't be something I would drink every day and so I'm willing to pay this out occasionally.
Appletiser is a sparkling apple carbonated drink that is made from apple concentrate. It smells and tastes very appley and there isn't that sticky and synthetic taste that you get from some carbonated fruit drinks. It doesn't contain any artificial colours or preservatives and I actually think this improves the drink for the better. It's a very fresh and refreshing drink that feels more sophisticated than being sat their downing a coke. It is quite sweet, but not in a way that makes my mouth feel coated - and this is rare in carbonated drinks. Of all of the carbonated fruit drinks, this is by far my favourite.
It is best served cold and so I keep mine in the fridge. I like it served with a slice of lemon and a couple of ice cubes in a wine glass - and then sit out in the garden with my feet up and read a good book. If you haven't tried it then I recommend that you do.
This used to be bought on Birthdays or special occassions when I was a kid. For a family of 6 things did not go far and so many was not wasted.
I was always exciting for birthdays as my mum would make a Prawn curry and we would have a glass of Appletiser! Small pleasures.
Even now that I m earning my own money I still only buy this when it is on offer or on special occassions. It is quite expensive and mother taught me well on bargin shopping!
For a 1lt bottle full price will be about £1.99, usually I get the offer of 2 for £2 in Tescos or Sainsburys!!
Taste wise, this is great and it can never be replicated by mixing lemonade or sparkling water with apple juice!!! They must do something to it to make it taste so nice!
They now do all kinds of flavours, peartizer and fruitiser however, apple flavour is still the best for some reason, but Ithiunk it is because of the memories it brings!
This does not have any kind of after taste and is not over powering in the least. It is great to have if you are not drinking and all around you are and great to offer if you have friends around who are driving.
This comes in different sizes, small individual bottle of about 250ml and a large 2litre bottle. The small ones are gone in about three gulps!!! Sainsburys do a good off and include the small appletiser in their meal deals with their sandwhiches and crisps which is great and make it a bit cheaper!
I would chose this all the time and if I had won the £161m lottery win I would have a wine celler full of appletiser!!!
One of my favourite soft drinks at the moment is Appletiser, its so fruity and refreshing. I've been buying it from my local Tesco where they sell it for £2.57 for a 750ml bottle, but at the moment they are 2 for £4.00. Appletiser is just apple juice but carbonated. I love fizzy drinks and I also love apple juice so for me its the perfect combination.
Appletiser is sold in glass bottles or cans. I've been buying the bottles which are made from green glass with a screw top lid, quite old fashioned looking when compared to today's fizzy drinks bottles. The front of the bottle is quite plain with just Appletiser written on it along with 100% fruit juice gently sparkling. It looks quite a "grown up" fizzy drink and would be ideal for young people when having a meal and adults are drinking wine.
Appletiser has no added sugar and the nutritional information is as follows for a 275ml serving:-
When you unscrew the cap and take a sniff its totally obvious that its made from apple juice, it smells sweet and fresh. Appletiser as stated is gently sparkling, its not as fizzy as Coke or lemonade but does have enough bubbles to make it a very pleasant refreshing drink. It has a lovely apple flavour, nothing artificial just real apple juice, its not sour but its certainly very crisp. It leaves no nasty after taste in your mouth and being not as gassy as other fizzy drinks it doesn't fill me up and make me feel bloated quickly.
Appletiser makes a great drink for any occasion. Its lovely and refreshing on a hot day with or without ice and being slightly sparking it makes an ideal drink to go with a meal if you don't want alcohol. One of my friends got married last year and Appletiser was given to the children for the toast, it was ideal as it looked similar to champagne. The smaller children were thrilled and felt very grown up when it came to the toast. Of course if you love Appletiser and you also fancy an alcoholic drink I can confirm its delicious with vodka.
Over all I would recommend this fizzy apple drink, its suitable for any occasion and it has a lovely crisp apple flavour. Its not too gassy and leaves no aftertaste. Its approximately 60 calories per average glassful and as its made from real apple juice it actually counts as one of your 5 a day which cant be bad!
This is definitely one that deserves 5 Dooyoo stars.
I rarely drink a glass of apple juice as I hardly find the drink appetising. It may be something to do with the way it looks: personally I always think that the dirty green-coloured liquid looks like something you'd get from muddy ground, so apple juices are not my favourite. Nevertheless, imagine my surprise when I took a sip of Appletiser and took a liking to it.
Appletiser comes in dark green glass bottles in quantities of 275 ml. This is the usual one that can be ordered at restaurants. Personally, I love the packaging design because it's simple yet classy. It reminds me of older designs of glass coca cola bottles. However, I'm pretty sure you can buy 2 litre bottles at most supermarkets which is convenient for family meals.
As for the taste, Appletiser has a refreshing and addictive taste. Appletiser is made from 100% apple juice (from concentrate) and it has no added sugar or preservatives which I love about. It does have a slightly sour taste to it but it is perfectly balanced by the naturally occurring sugars. Also, since it's carbonated, it does add a kick to the taste. Personally it is best served chilled; otherwise, it can leave a slight bitter taste behind.
Nutrition wise, Appletiser is 100% made from apples so it's healthy in a sense. However, it does contain 28.1 grams of naturally occurring sugars per 275 ml bottles and gives you 129 kcals. Considering the sugars are natural, it is a lot healthier compared to other fizzy drinks. It should be noted that one 275 ml bottle would make up for 31% RDA of carbohydrates/sugars so I think it should be consumed in moderate quantities. Drinking too much would be bad for your oral hygiene after all.
So far, I have been ordering Appletiser when I'm having a meal at restaurants so it has been quite expensive for me. One 275 ml bottle easily costs me £2.00, therefore I shall be buying the 2 litre bottles from now on. I believe they are sold around £2.50 so it's more economical that way.
Personally, I still don't like drinking apple juices. Nevertheless, Appletiser is an exception. Maybe it's the bubbles or the taste, but it's no denying that Appletiser does a great job complementing my meals and makes them enjoyable. I would recommend this drink to anyone.
My husband started buying this recently and so I was enticed to give it a try although I don't usually like fizzy drinks other than full fat coke on occasion.
However, the difference with Appletiser is that it is 100% apple juice (from concentrate) that has been carbonated. There are no other ingredients and no artificial colourings, flavours or preservatives.
Therefore it is a good drink in terms of health benefits so I would prefer my children to drink this rather than other fizzy drinks that are full of sugar although of course this will have naturally occurring sugar within it (fructose).
A 750ml bottle costs around £2.50 but the one we have recently purchased has a label around the bottom of the bottle saying buy 2 claim 1 free so that's a good deal at the moment (we purchased ours in Tesco). Or you can collect points for other rewards. Internet access is required and you have to claim your free bottle or redeem your points online (closing date 30th June 2011). The web address is: appletiserrewards.co.uk. The label on the back of the bottle has a code beneath it to use online for this purpose.
Each 250ml serving contains 118 calories, 25.5g of sugar (naturally occurring sugars from the fruit), no fat and no salt so as stated above it is not the unhealthiest fizzy drink but because of the sugar, naturally occurring or not, it's probably best to limit your intake to protect your teeth!
The bottle is a lovely apple green colour so can easily be spotted on the supermarket shelf and has a screw top lid which makes for easy opening and there is a satisfying fizzing sound on opening. This is fizzy but not as fizzy as say coke which always makes me hiccup on drinking for some reason. It is obviously very fruity and has a lovely apple taste and is best served cold or over ice which makes it a very refreshing, summery drink great to have any time but a nice addition to a BBQ or dinner party for those not consuming alcohol.
Once opened the bottle should be kept refridgerated and consumed within 4 days.
The bottle states that appletiser is 100% pure pleasure. I wouldn't go as far as that with my recommendation but it is nevertheless a very nice, refreshing drink with health benefits of being 100% made of fruit so especially good if you struggle to eat your fruit in its natural state.
Aside from the larger bottle, you can by a 4 pack of 500ml bottles for around the £4 mark and these are good for picnics or when you are on the move. All in all I can recommend this drink for the reasons stated above.
Thanks for reading. x
I have been a big fan of this drink since I was younger, probably about 8 or 9.. so a good 10 years ago! I only really drink it when I am out for meals as it is quite expensive (in my opinion) for keeping in your cupboards at home. It started off as myself and a friends 'wine' when we had dinner with our parents because obviously we were not allowed real wine - this was just as good.
The bottle is dark green and has a screw top which makes it easier than needing a bottle opener. The word 'Appletiser' is written as shown in the picture down the bottle with all ingredients and nutritional information on the back. It is best served cold and should be kept in the fridge.
It can be purchased in most supermarkets at £2.50 for a large bottle (which in my case lasts about 5 or 6 glasses worth). You can also buy a pack of 4 500ml bottles for around £4. I am unsure of the price at bars/restaurants as each prices it different;y.
As you can tell from the name of the drink, it contains apple juice. Although, it is fizzy which makes it a lot more exciting in my opinion. I much prefer this to drinks such as Coca-Cola, as it is not even half as fizzy. It also does not have any caffeine so you will be able to drink it before going to bed (if you fancy).
I do not think there is a specific age range for this drink, it is suitable for anyone. It looks quite classy and stands out when you see it behind the bar amongst other drinks. I feel that it appeals to children and young adults who are unable to drink alcohol but would like something fruity and fun. It also appeals to adults who are out with friends and would like something non-alcoholic.
I recommend this drink to anyone looking for a fizzy fruity kick throughout the day. It is really yummy and worth a try.
Appletiser is my preferred drink of choice at the moment, as I'm a big fan of apple flavoured drinks but prefer to buy good quality ones. Appletiser is fizzy, which sets it apart from most other apple drinks and fizzy drinks, and its closest competitor is probably Apple Tango.
It's packaged in thick green glass bottles rather than a typical aluminium can, and it's also more expensive than a standard fizzy drink. The small size bottle of Appletiser holds 250ml whereas a typical can holds 330ml, and in my local Sainsbury's it costs around 90p for a small bottle compared to a can which is around the 60p mark. For this reason, you're better off hunting it down when there's an offer on the larger (750ml) glass bottle. As it has a use-by date of around a year, it will keep well and is good for occasions like dinner parties, BBQs and the Christmas period. The bottles have screw top lids so they're easy to open and close.
Appletiser has a very sweet taste despite having no added sugar, so it can be off-putting for many people. I have a sweet tooth and I love it, I also find that it is quite 'filling' and satisfying despite the smaller quantities, and it's probably a good thing if I'm drinking less of the fizzy stuff. I've found that if places don't stock Appletiser they tend to offer you apple juice and soda water, which I think tastes disgusting and isn't a patch on the real thing.
One thing I do think is strange is the pronunciation. I've noticed some people call it 'Appletise' and don't pronounce the final 'r'; I'm not sure why this is or if it's a regional or age thing or not?!
Although it's not fresh, a small bottle of Appletiser does count as one of your five a day, and the high sugar content comes from the fruit juice itself so it's not all bad. I'm not a big fan of orange juice so I do find it quite difficult to decide on a healthyish drink whilst eating out, and I normally pick Appletiser. Unfortunately I've found that it's often not available in smaller pubs so it can't be that popular, and I realise it's not to everyone's tastes. However, I'm going to give it 4 stars on the basis that it's tasty and not too unhealthy, but it's not always easy to get hold of and it's more expensive than comparable products.
I remember really liking appletiser when I was younger, whenever we went out to pubs/bars I would always ask for it. After having one yesterday at pizza express I thought I might as well write a review on it!
The drink comes in a thick glass bottle, it is green yet also clear. It isn't one of these types where you have to use a bottle opener, you just twist the top off. The appletiser logo is displayed down the side of the bottle, and there is a clear label on the back of it giving you the nutritional information. The nature of this drink means that its really a lot better served cold.
When you pour the drink into the glass it is a sort of clear colour, but it has a hint of green in it. The actual drink has a lovely taste, it is very apple-y, and not tasting at all synthetic or fake. It s quite light and crisp, so very refreshing, it also has a slight fizz to it but its not totally fizzy like some other more popular drinks like coke and lemonade. It seems like a more adult soft drink that older people would choose to drink as an alcohol alternative rather than the typical coke, because of the packaging etc it does look sophisticated.
I'd definitely recommend this, and it seems to be quite readily available in chain restaurants such as pizza express (£2.15), supermarkets (about £2.50 for a large bottle) and pubs and bars.
I was first introduced to Appletiser during school at the debating society that a certain bow tie-wearing teacher thought would be jazzed up with a classy drink. Since then, I have drunk it on and off and continue to absolutely adore it.
It is true that Appletiser is fairly sweet and is not the greatest drink to have when it's warm, but those kinds of arguments are akin to debating the usefulness of a car without petrol.
When it's cold and used as a refreshment, there are very few other beverages which come even remotely close to Appletiser in terms of taste. It seems like a surprisingly simple idea to carbonise apple juice and try to keep the rest as simple as possible, yet countless other companies, most notably the Tango brand have tried and spectacularly failed to produce a refreshing soft drink on an apple base. Appletiser has been a leader in this highly niche field for a very long time and there are very good reasons for this.
It is not an alternative to alcoholic drinks, but is great on a hot summer evening or as a lunchtime refreshment instead of things like coke. Its one major downside is its price and the glass bottles no doubt add to this problem. The price is the sole reason I do not buy and drink Appletiser a lot more frequently than I otherwise would do.
