“ Manufacturer: Asda / Type: Fruit Juice „
Shopping at Asda you always find a good bargain I find. So I never fail to get a load of juice when shopping at Asda. One of my favourites is Asda's own grape, apple and raspberry juice.
The packaging comes in a purple card board and shows on the front pictures of the fruit in the juice. On the sides it has all the ingredients and a little about how the product was made. It's a really simple package for opening and closing, it has a twist lid at the top. Helping keep the juice fresh. It says on the packaging that it can serve up to five servings.
The juice it self is very sweet and refreshing as the packaging promises. It's also from concentrate and is reddish in colour. It tastes absolutely amazing and I always have it for my breakfast to help wake me up!
You can pick these up for around £1 each or you can get four for £3. There is also other types of juice in that offer. They include blueberry, cranberry, orange, mango, forest fruits and many, many others. A very good bargain with the Asda juice!
This has been my favourite flavour of breakfast juice for a while now, and have sampled many different types such as Sainsbury's and Marks and Spencer, but I'm talking about the Asda version which I found after changing our supermarket from Tesco to Asda, I'd loved Tesco's version so was hoping that Asda also did it!
I would say that the packaging is both quite attractive and also practical. It is in a pink carton which compliments the colours of the pictures of the fruit on the front of the carton (grapes, apple and raspberry!) it seems to be made out of reinforced cardboard, think Starbucks coffee cups which is good because its not too thick so that its really heavy or its not too thin so that the juice comes through it! Also it is quite practical because to get the liquid out and into a glass it has a hole at the top which has a screw lid, a lot better than some juice cartons - I hate the cardboard ones where you have to cut a hole!
I really like the uniqueness of this juice, unlike the simpleness of for example, plain orange juice, its not actually that readily available and it doesn't have loads of variations, although Copella and Marks and Spencer do do their own version of it as well as the supermarket own brand ones. It's a nice change from the normal juices, and really adds something to apple juice. It is a red-pink colour when you pour it which is nice in the glass, and it is also quite a different texture juice compared to Tropicana for example as it is quite thin, which makes it easier to drink quickly! It tastes so nice and is really refreshing, all the flavours go together really well. It costs around £1.40 but can be bought as part of the 3 for £3 offer on cartons of juices.
Our family shopping switch the Asda although short-lived, we've now returned to Morrisons, did yield a few products that impressed me and this Grape, Apple and Raspberry juice is one of the products that did so.
The drink comes in a cardboard cartoon that is pink in colour and has a picture of the fruit in question prominently on the front. The baby pink colour does make the juice seem enticing and the carton is definitely eye-catching when on the shelves. The carton also has a plastic pouring nozzle, which is certainly better than a simple cardboard pouring spout and makes pouring a refreshing glass of this drink much easier and less messy.
When you open the carton, which is easy compared to some cartons I have attempted to open recently you are immediately hit with the smell of the contents. The aroma itself is in my opinion a delicate mix grape, apple and raspberry and really made me what to consume the entire carton there and then. I did however manage to restrain myself and so pulled a glass from the cupboard and poured myself a glass.
The liquid itself is reddish in colour and smells just as good in the glass as it did in the carton. It is also quite thin compared to other juices in this style and for me this is definitely a positive thing as I'm not overly fond of extremely thick drinks.
So how would it taste? Quite simply it tasted absolutely gorgeous. The taste was light and crisp and although three flavours blended expertly together and produced an exceptionally refreshing and delicious drink, notes of each flavour separately could also be tasted.
This drink can be purchased on offer from Asda alongside 3 other cartons for £3, which I think is really good value. In my opinion it is one of the best drinks in its category that I have tasted for a long time and should I ever be in Asda in need of such a drink then this is certainly what I shall reach for. If you haven't tried it yet you really should and maybe it'll become a regular addition to your shopping trolley as well.
