“ Asda / Lemonade. „
When it come to lemonade it really isn't something I purchase regularly or drink. I don't like artificial tasting lemon drinks and usually find them too artificially sweetened too which is why when I spotted this nice looking and somewhat posh looking bottle (well the label is to me at least lol) I decided that as it was called extra special and extra juicy to give it a go!
The bottle itself holds 2L of the lemonade and is a see-through plastic bottle with a purple coloured screw on/on off lid/cap to the top of it. Around the bottle it has a white and purply coloured label around it and on that we are told that it is Asda 'Extra Juicy' Lemonade 'With real lemon juice and sparkling spring water' and there is a picture of lemons on there, the size is stated and we are also told that it contains no artificial colours or flavours. On the back of the bottle other information listed includes ingredients being given as well as full nutritional information and contact details for Asda. The bottle contains enough information on it and that information is neatly laid out.
The Lemonade Itself:
The lemonade itself is slightly bubbly opposed to fizzy and has a very faint smell of lemons to it which is slightly zesty in its aroma. It is transparent and has a few bubbles in it when poured and has a slight hint of a yellow colour to it but that colour is really slight.
Taste wise it tastes of lemons and not in an artificial way at all. It is nicely and again naturally sweetened but not overly so and it has a slight zesty feel to it and a slight tartness on the palette but it isn't what I'd describe as sour.
Best served chilled this is meant to be consumed within 3 days from opening it and I agree with that cos day 4 of me owning it, it had lost any bubbles it had contained and went to more like a lemon juice however for the 3 days I had it I enjoyed it well enough alone and mixed with a spirit or two as well!
Although I can't rave about it as I'd like it to be a bit richer in lemon flavour it is nice enough to be fair to it and to me this is more of a grown up soft drink from the appearance of the bottle to the tart flavour it possesses!
