“ Manufacturer: ASDA / Type: Soft Drink „
It's rare that I drink Lime cordial as majority of the time I like to drink water but sometimes I'll get ASDA own Lime Cordial as it's the cheapest lime flavoured cordial available on the market when I go to the supermarket. This one cost me 50p and whilst I can't remember the exact measurements it was a fairly big bottle so I'd guestimate about 1 litre. It's lasted me about 2 months now although I don't drink it regularly but it's nice to have the drink there if I want it. The taste is what you'd expect and it's not an overpowering taste of lime, rather a taste of it but you aren't left scrunching your face or thinking this isn't "limey" enough. The thing with lime cordial for me is that sometimes it can stay in my mouth for a while like an aftertaste and I don't like that however with this cordial I had no troubles like that it was just a nice refreshing burst of limes. To get the best out of this cordial I'd recommend using ice with water and probably about an inch of the cordial, this gives it enough lime with the water and once mixed together is a lovely combination. You could also try this with lemonade like I sometimes to this gives it kind of a lemon and lime taste which is always refreshing. When looking at lime cordials I'd recommend not spending loads on the branded ones as they're usually the ones which give a bad aftertaste, this one is cheap (50p for me) and it gives the same taste (if not nicer) than some of the branded ones do.
I enjoy trying out shop's own brands of various drinks, including not only fizzy pops and squashes, but hot drinks and cordials and own brand alcohol. Lately I have been drinking Asada's sown brand lime cordial and at only 55p for a fairly large plastic bottle, I ma have to say I have been impressed with this tasty little drink. I do like lemon and lime flavours as I find them very refreshing. However, I have found some of them can be fairly chemically tasting or have an odd aftertaste. I was pleasantly surprised with the Asada lime cordial drink, which tastes light and refreshing as well as having a fantastic taste of real limes. I like to add a droop of this to my lager (as does my other half) and it makes a nice change instead of drinking the lager on its own. It gives it a nice pleasant kick. The cordial is fairly strong so if you are just going to drink it on its own with water and ice, I would recommend you go easy on how much you initially pour into the bottom of your glass. Put in less first to test the strength and I think you will be surprised by how far this stuff goes. We like to fill our tall glasses nice and full and add a good amount of ice. It makes for a very tasty and refreshing drink. I also make up a cordial drink to take with me to my skipping class in my sports bottle, and it's great to drink between breaks and is a fantastic thirst quencher. It compares very favourably indeed with the higher priced and branded cordials have tasted and overall I would have to say I prefer this one, especially as it costs considerably less than I usually pay. Great product and very much recommended.
Isn't it funny, How there are a few items that you buy only at Christmas. You don't look for them all year. But as soon as santa is polishing his sleigh and preparing his annual journey, we have to rush to the supermarket and stock up on these items that we just can't experience Christmas without. One of these items in our house is lime cordial. I can go all year without buying a bottle. But the thought of my house being lime cordial free over Christmas leaves me in cold sweats. I think this is due to the fact that we always had lime cordial in our house over Christmas when I was growing up. (and branston pickle...thats another one.) Asda lime cordial is a really delicious drink. It is very strong in concentration so only a small drop is needed to create a good lime flavour. I like to add a dash of this lime cordial to an ice cold glass of lemonade. I think this makes such a delicious and refreshing drink. It is also very sharp and I love drinks that have a zingy kick. This lime cordial is very reasonable in price. A one litre plastic bottle costs around 55p. Which I think is excellent value for money. To me it tastes better than some other well known branded cordials. (which charge over double for thier products.) All nutritional values and dietry advice are written on the reverse side of the bottle. There is also a list of the ingredients used in order to make this delicious cordial. I like the packaging. It is simplistic, unyet effective. The lime green label against the black logo is really attractive and stands out on the shelf. Not only can the lime cordial be added to soft drinks, it can also be added to beer and lager too. I love a lager and lime drink it is so refreshing and takes the lime works well as it takes the bitterness out of the lager. I have also added lime cordial to punches before now. And it is excellent in adding a great zingy citrus taste to a cocktail. My children are not so keen on this lime cordial, they think it is too sour. I do indeed think that this cordial is an aquired taste. It is a bit like marmite...you either love it or hate it. I simply love it as it brings a light, refreshing and totally mouth watering alternative to the soft drink choices.
I am quite a big fan of using soft drinks to flavour water and regularly buy a variety of squash type juices and cordials. I like to think that these are SLIGHTLY better for my teeth than constantly drinking fizzy pop and more sugary alternatives, as the usual way I will drink cordial or squash is in a plain glass of tap water. I struggle to drink tap water (or bottled, for that matter) as I do not like the taste, so by adding a squash or cordial to the water I do find that it makes it more palatable for me personally. When it came to doing a recent internet shop, I was all set to make my usual purchase of a bottle of "Schweppes" Lime Cordial. I regularly drink lime cordial in lemonade and tap water, as well as in my lager. I noticed that the bottle of Schweppes lime cordial was going to cost me in the region of £1.30, when I noticed by chance that Asda had their own brand lime cordial for sale too, available at a considerably lower price than my usual Schweppes purchase. The bottle of Asda lime cordial was only going to set me back a very reasonable 55 pence, and the bottle is the same size as the Schweppes alternative - one litre. The lower price of the Asda own-branded cordial was the main reason for me giving it a try out. I will admit though, that although I was pleased to be saving some money (who wouldn't be?) I was slightly dubious as to whether the quality and taste of the Asda cordial would be as good as the alternative cordial that I usually buy. Only one way to find out...... When the Asda lime cordial arrived among the rest of my grocery shopping, first impressions were good; the colour of the lime cordial looked to be much the same as my usual choice, and the pale green liquid was easy to see through the (recyclable) plastic bottle. Deciding to sample the cordial later that same evening, I opted to pour a little in my glass of lemonade. I found that the cordial had a 'sharpness' to its flavour but this is evident with every other brand of lime cordial I have tasted before, and is what makes the lime so refreshing when added to lemonade or water on a hot day, in my opinion! I didn't think that the Asda cordial was overly bitter, but there was a definite 'bite' to the drink, particularly when compared to a fruit squash or something similar. This is not a complaint at all, and like I said already, I find that the sharp edge to the flavour most definitely makes the overall taste more interesting. I found that the Asda lime is as versatile as any other brand of lime cordial I have bought before, and as it is a regular purchase in my house, I am confident that I have tried all brands that are available on the market these days. I found that the Asda lime was a nice addition to my lager last weekend when we were at a family get-together, and I honestly didn't know whether the lime in my drink was my (cheap) Asda offering, or my mum's top-end-of-the-market 'Rose's' lime cordial. To me personally, this says it all and so I wouldn't hesitate to buy this bottle of cordial from Asda again. I have tried the Asda lime cordial in a variety of different ways, in lager, with soda water, tap water and also with lemonade and I have liked the overall taste of the drink with all of these accompaniments. I would not hesitate to recommend the lime cordial to anybody else, and feel it saved me a good few pennies without compromising on quality or taste... It most definitely gets top marks from me!
I love drinking juices and pops and things like that and the other day my taste-buds fancied something really zesty and zingy and I was in Asda with my friend doing a bit of shopping and at 55p for this one litre bottle of cordial I felt I really should give it a go as I hadn't seen it before and thought instantly that it offered value for money! The Packaging: Well like I just stated this comes in a 1 litre bottle which is clear and plastic and has a mainly light green label around it's middle and on that I'm told it is indeed Asda Lime Cordial. On the back of the bottle other information given includes ingredients and nutritional values and contact details for Asda are also stated. Simple but informative bottle and I do appreciate being able to see the cordial through the bottle too! The Cordial: Light green and transparent in colour it's a flat juice/cordial that of course you mix with water or with alcohol or waters of your choice really! I find I only need a little blended with tap water for a nice refreshing drink but of course you can adjust the amount of cordial you use to appease your own taste-buds! It's a zesty, slightly sharp lime cordial really. It smells as it tastes with a bit of natural sweetness to it. It's refreshing and tasty and I've mixed mine with vodka, larger and in soda water and liked it any way I have tried it so far! Good value cos you don't need much of it at all as it's rather concentrated and to me this is as good as other leading brands of such drinks so it's recommended from me with a big thumbs up due to it';s natural limey flavour!
