I am a big fan of Asda's own brand hi-juice and although my favourite is their new rhubarb, strawberry and apple flavour, this comes a close second.
I really enjoyed drinking this over the last summer, and is refreshing, cool and fruity when served over ice. It's taste is a little bit similar to Schloer, but this is -I think anyway- a lot nicer to drink.
You can normally buy this in a deal of two bottles for £2.50 and that is excellent value as you don't need a lot of this in your glass as its flavour is subtle enough that more simply isn't nessecary.
My only issue with it is that my local branch don't always have it in store which can prove disappointing.
As you can see from the bottle, the juice is almost clear and contains no artificial colours or flavours which is something I definitely always look for. I would say it tastes more of peach than it does of grape, and that is a bit of an odd pairing as the two wouldn't ordinarily be put together, but it works.
I would certainly buy this again and would recommend it to anyone. It is perfect value for money and is yet another example of just how good Asda is at their own brand products. certainly this range is a lot nicer than those bought from a lot of their competitors, and there seems to be a wide range of different and exciting flavours yo pick from.
I think next week I am going to try the cranberry and raspberry variety, but I will be very surprised if it can beat this particular type of squash.
We bought this a couple of weeks ago because it was on offer, it is a bit different to what we normally get because although we always buy squash we never normally buy high juice for some reason. I've just got round to reviewing it now, and I'm fancying buying some more of this or trying out the different flavours!
The packaging seems to look more high class than your average squash bottle, suggesting that maybe this is a slightly different product to what you are used to. You can get it in bottles of 500ml or 1L, obviously it is only available from Asda since it is an Asda own brand product. There are indentations on the bottle which makes it a lot easier to hold when you're pouring so it doesn't get dropped!
The taste of the product is lovely, and it is quite different to what I am used to. The grape and peach are an unusual flavour combination but they actually go together really well. I'd say I can taste the grape the most, the peach is more subtle and it is very nice - I'm surprised there isn't more grape juice around as its not something I really ever see!
It does taste quite sweet and this is clearly because of the amount of sugar in it (sugar is the first ingredient). It's not particularly healthy because it has 94 calories and 22 grams of sugar in per glass, so it could end up rotting your teeth if you drink it excessively so but then again a lot of drinks seem to have a lot of sugar in these days such as coke which is drunk loads! The 1L bottle is currently on offer at Asda, reduced from £1.25 to £1 which isn't bad!
This is my absolute favourite juice drink
The only thing that lets it down is that it is very high calorie but obviously that is why it tastes so lovely. It is a concentrated juice which is to be mixed with water but I actually mix it with lemonade and it creates a lovely fizzy refreshing juice drink. It is also niced mixed with Peach Schnapps and lemonade as it really brings out the peach flavour.
It is white grape and peach flavour and the two flavours go incredibly well together. You can really taste the fruit in it and it doesn't taste artificial at all. It is very sweet and sugary but not at all sickly. The smell of it is lovely too as it smells very peachy. This drink is also nice with a meal because the flavour is not overpowering. It is best served with ice cold lemonade and it is very refreshing and really quenches my thirst. Everyone I know loves this drink. It is good for serving at parties with lemonade as an alternative to Schloer as it is has quite a grown up sophisticated taste and look to it.
It is very good value for money as you only need a small amount and it goes a long way and it only costs £1.25 a bottle and is well worth the money for such a good quality tasting juice.
I would definately recommend Asda High Juice White Grape and Peach to all my friends. It is perfect for drinking as a treat or on special occasions.
I normally don't drink cordial, preferring fruit juices, tea and good old water. I do however frequently buy it as my two young sons gulp it by the bucketload.
Having tired from drinking all the Robinsons flavours I was on the lookout for something they may like that wouldn't be laden in sugars and would be relatively 'healthy'.
I spotted this amongst the other cordials in Asda so thought we would give it a try..
Price and packaging~
The thing that caught my eye straight away was the price tag of just £1. It's Asda's own brand and for a 1L bottle I thought that sounded reasonable.
The cordial looks just like apple juice and it can be seen clearly through the bottle which is plastic and see through. The neck is quite stubby and has swirls cascading down making it look quite classy..well as classy as a cordial bottle is going to look anyway.
Round the centre is a paper wrapper with all the relevant information and a picture of some grapes and peaches surprisingly enough.
The taste test~
It states to use one part squash to four parts water and for toddlers dilute even more. I made the drink up accordingly and gave to my boys in a sports bottle without telling them the flavour to see what they thought.
Both boys were very excited by this and said how nice it tasted so I made myself a glass to try it out myself..
The taste is surprisingly fruity and not all like a squash/cordial. It tastes like pure fruit juice and is very refreshing.
The grape is the first flavour to hit your taste buds then the peach takes over; it's really thirst quenching and a lot nicer than I anticipated it to be.
Would I recommend this?~
If you are looking for a soft drink to try than you can't go wrong with this (that is presuming you like grape and peach) it's very tasty and something I will definitely be buying in the future.

As I have just gotten over a nasty throat infection and have got sick at the sight of my regular drinks (tea, orange juice), this made a real change. It doesn't taste tangy yet isn't too sweet either it's just, well..perfect!
Try it, you may be surprised..
ASDA high Juice is a range of juices that are produced under the ASDA brand of food products. The flavour that I enjoy in particular is the White Grape and Peach.
The reason that I decide to try the grape and peach flavour, was because I had already tried other flavours in the range, that I liked and enjoyed. For this reason, and the fact that I always like trying new flavours I decide to try this.
The ASDA high juice is your typical juice, in that it has to be watered down before consuming. On the label of the bottle it is advised that the juice is measured out in one part juice to every three or four parts water. Although, I do find that the recommended amount of juice can make the drink a bit too strong to drink, so I often water down the drink even further.
One think to note of the juice is the smell when you first open the bottle and every time you make a drink of the juice. It is very strong, instantly recognisable smell, that can be difficult to describe. But the best way is a very sweet aroama, that is neither grapes or peach but a sweet blend of the two. Although I like the smell of the juice, there are people in my fmaily that do not like the smell, and hate it; but I love it.
In terms of the appearance of the juice, when it is in the bottle it is a translucent yellow colour. But when the juice has been dilluted the colour becomes see through.
One of the problems that can be labelled at this product is the amount of sugar that is in the juice, as it is in the medium to high range (although I am not sure of the exact figure). Foe this reason I would not advise a person to drink a high amount of this juice.
I would recommend this juice as I really enjoy the taste and the sweet smell that is given off. Although there is the problem of the amount of sugar that is in the juice. But this can be overcome, as the juice can be watered down and still have the same flavour and sweet smell given off. For this reason I don't think this is a five start product, but it is a four star; because the product is so enjoyable. Although I would state that it is not always to everyones tastes.
One note should be made, if you are looking for this product in ASDA the label has been change, although the product is still under the same name.
Recently I've been choosing different kinds of squash to make drinking water at work a bit more interesting. Having tried a similar product in the range and enjoyed it, I decided to go for a different flavour.
This white grape and peach flavour caught my eye, as it looked like it would be quite sweet and so enjoyable. It comes in a litre size plastic bottle with a dark green screw top lid. The juice itself is a pale yellow in colour, and the image on the bottle shows a bunch of grapes and a few peaches. It has a small green oval stating that, as it's Asda's own brand, it contains no artificial colours or flavours. It's also described as '50% fruit high juice', which I think is better than standard style squashes on the market.
It costs a very reasonable £1 for 1 litre, with the suggestion that this provides 20 servings when diluted to standard. As our office plastic cups are very tiny, I've managed to get a lot more servings out of it (or I would have done if my friends didn't insist on helping me drink it!).
The juice itself is pretty sweet, but it is nice and fruity and very refreshing. Both the white grapes and peach flavours are strong and really come through. It's definitely a pick me up in the morning or mid afternoon in the office as I don't drink tea or coffee.
Another advantage of it is that we can dilute it to taste, because I like very sweet things but one of my friends doesn't and so can just add a few drops. This also tends to make it last longer than buying regular juice. Additionally, it doesn't require refridgeration, important to me at work because the fridge is more like a tiny drinks cabinet.
Every 100ml (after standard dilution) apparently contains 39kcal and 9.5g of sugar. That is really high for a drink, but a good proportion of that does come from the fruit juice itself. 100ml also provides 20% of your vitamin C for the day.
Overall, I do enjoy drinking this juice. I think it's very reasonably priced against regular fruit juice, where I would only get 3 or 4 glasses from the carton for more money. However, the sugar in it means it's not as good as drinking water, obviously, but then we can't be good all the time.
The asda white grape and peach high juice is one of the best squash drinks you can buy! It is a more expensive than the other asda juice drinks buy around 60p but its defiantly worth it for the amazing taste.
There are a few different types of this juice but personally I prefer this flavour over the others, it is very sweet and contains 50% fruit juice that you can defiantly taste as it is very "thick" and is not watery at all as some cheaper squash drinks can be. It also has quite a high vitamin content without containing as many additives as alternative drinks.
The taste of the grape and peach compliments each other perfectly and you can taste both of the flavours very well, although the peach seems to be a little stronger of the 2.
There is also a pineapple version of this drink that I recommend also as it is of the same high quality as this drink.
Asda high juices are absolutely wonderful. They taste so delicious, a million times better than normal squash. They taste more genuinely fruity... well the clue is in the name!
There are a range of different flavours and they have between 45% and 50% fruit juice. The White grape and peach is quite a sweet one and has 50% juice.
The best thing about Asda own make drinks is they don't contain Aspartame, that nasty little chemical that manufacturers use to lower the calorie content and call it diet so we are all conned into thinking it is good for us.
A bit more expensive than plain squash at £1.40 a bottle but they are so much tastier and better for you. I'm hooked!
Because it is so tasty it is a great way of encouraging kids to drink more water. Add some Asda High Juice and they don't realise that most of what their drinking is good old-fashioned water!
I really do rate this product and I'm lost if we don't have a bottle in the cupboard. It's really fruity, tasty and low in calories.
There are lots of flavours to choose from so give one a go!!
I have previously reviewed Asdas Pineapple and Lime version of this squash. I bought the two bottles together on one of their promotions, two 2 litre bottles for £2. This variety costs different amounts for different flavours, this one would normally be £1.11.
They come from a range of 50% fruit high juice drinks, well squashes which have some nice sounding flavours (all shown at the end of this review) these two flavours appealed more than the others hence me choosing them.
I like the range of drinks offered by Shloer and the white grape and peach one is my favourite of their products so I thought this squash would be especially nice.
The bottle is nothing particularly special, it has a slightly longer neck than some bottles of squash with a spiral design working its way down the bottle apart from where the label is.
The label is very pale in colouration with a background of white grapes and peaches. The label clearly shows the offer of any 2 for £2. It says, "White grape and peach high juice with added vitamin C. Dilute to taste." They recommend that you dilute it one part squash to four of water. Toddlers should have it weaker than that though. I personally find the way they suggest to be too strong but it is one of those things, which is just down to personal taste.
The main ingredient of this squash is in fact sugar. It contains 30% white grape juice from concentrate and 20% peach juice from concentrate.
It is very high in calories at 103 calories per 250ml. Not so great!
We usually buy sugar free squash, as I don't see the point in adding extra sugar into our diets on the little things like this, this squash has confirmed my thoughts on this.
The bottle being see through means that you can easily see the colour of the squash, it is very pale and it looks like very watery apple juice to me.
In the bottle the smell of this juice is very sweet and it is easy to tell the flavour as both grape and peach is evident.
Once diluted the squash is almost clear, hardly any colour remains, my other half jokes that it looks like weak wee.
Now the taste, when is the last time you had peaches from a can that came in syrup? I haven't had them for years but I remembered the taste as soon as I drank this! It is so sweet and rather sickly just like that syrup.
The grape flavour gets lost a bit too much for me because of how overly sweet this drink is. Even when you have it made with only a tiny bit of squash it is still too sweet, it is just like drinking sugar water.
Overall it is not that refreshing, it is nice enough but I could not drink more than one glass of it because the sickly taste is just too much. It certainly wont quench a real thirst!
I have a sweet tooth and it is even too much for me. I had such high hopes for this squash and I have been completely let down by it. It is on the side and has hardly been touched. I can see it ending up in the bin where we are so disappointed in it.
Had they put less sugar (a lot less!) in then it could have been a very nice alternative to orange squash and something that almost anyone would like but as it is, it just doesn't even deserve another purchase unfortunately. The taste should be of the fruits not the sugar!
Do I recommend it? NO it is so sweet you wont even want to finish the bottle!
I can only give this one star as it is so sickly and I don't even want another glass of it let alone to finish the bottle!
