Asda Smart Price Lemonade
I usually do my weekly shopping in Asda as its the most convenient shop for me to get to really. As I've been going there so long now I pretty much know what I do and don't like and the best buys and the likes. Most of the time I don't mind the Smart Price range. I find it good value for money and although theres some stuff I really don't like there are some like the mozzarella cheese, washing powder when I'm broke toilet roll and the likes!
With it being Christmas I have been desperately trying to make little cut backs, like a lot of us have been I guess and at 18p a bottle I decided that I must give this lemonade a go as my usual choice was over a pound a bottle and thats quite a saving to make when you get through a couple of bottles a week as I do!
The bottle is see through and plastic and holds 2L of the lemonade, has a bright green and white label around it and a twist on/off white plastic cap/lid to the top of it. On the front of the bottle we are told that it is Asda 'Smart Price' Lemonade and there is a picture depicted of a glass of it on there and then on the back of the bottle other information is listed such as ingredients and nutritional information and contact details for Asda are also listed. This is very cheap looking packaging but a good size for the money in appearance and informative enough too.
The Lemonade Itself:
So the lemonade is a clear liquid and when you twist off the lid you get a weird sot of sweetener smell and a lot of fizz escaping the bottle. This is a very fizzy drink indeed, even when poured however I really hate this drink! Its too fizzy and even looking at the ingredient list given on the back of the bottle I can't even see a lemon or juice of a lemon or anything added to this at all and to me this is just a fizzy sort of water in flavour with far too much sweetener added to it and it leaves a really odd tinny after taste after consuming it and isn't one bit thirst quenching at all!
Cheap and nasty is the best description of this drink and I'm going to list the ingredients within this so someone can tell me where the lemon is within it an all lol.
