“ Several flavours to enjoy! „
At this time of year when cars and public transport get very overheated, travelling can be very uncomfortable if you don't ensure that you drink plenty of liquids. Sometimes, I make up squash drinks in empty 500ml bottles, but they don't last long and recently I have taken to filling and drinking the larger 1 litre bottles.
It is inevitable however that at times I forget, or don't get round to it, or run out and I often find myself popping into a supermarket on the way home with a long drive ahead of me and topping up with liquids.
It was in preparation for a busy week ahead that, for the first time in quite a while, I bougt three bottles of this flavoured sparkling water last week in Asda. You get 3 x 1ltr bottles for only £1.00 - a decent saving on the price for a single bottle of 41p.
I find the 1 litre bottles to be just about the right size of bottle for the car and provided I keep it in the shade, it lasts me for most of the day. In the final analysis, it has to be recognised that this is primarily carbonated water with some flavourings and sweeteners in it, so in my mind it is hard to justify prices much higher than this, although it doesn't stop some manufacturers trying, does it?
Drunk cold this is quite refreshening. The initial fizz of the carbonated water has come and gone before you know it and the lemon and lime taste just about compensates for the taste of the artificial sweeteners. Without the flavouring, I think this would be a much less satisfactory drinking experience. There are a number of other fruit flavours available in the range.
We would not normally drink this in the house. My wife doesn't drink it, so it tends to be just me that buys this and other supermarket brands and it stays in the car. It mostly all gets drunk within one day, so I am unable to comment on the extent to which it keep its fizz. It states on the bottle that once opened, it should be refrigerated and consumed within 3 days.
Although the product does contain sweeteners and preservatives, thre are no artificial colours or flavours in it and no added sugar. The full 1 litre bottle contains only 24 calories. It is suitable for vegetarians.
I would certainly buy this again. Great value and a decent taste.
I love sparkling water. I normally buy a few for special occasions when I am shopping at Tesco, but my weekly shop took me to Argos one week when I was working out of town. I was having some friends round for dinner and sparkling water is a good drink to offer as a soft alternative.
The bottles were priced similarly to Tescos and thereofre were competitive. They were around 40 pence each and if you bought three you saved some money.
The bottles are enough for three large glasses, or four or five smaller ones.
The bottles come in a wide variety of fruity flavours, and it was nice that they had some different ones to Tescos, such as Strawberry and vanilla, and apple and mango. I picked up a few random combinations that I hadnt tried before and I am pleased to say they were all lovely flavours.
The water was not too fizzy and was not too heavily flavoured, so although the flavours may sound very strong they are not too over powering at all. The drink is much lighter and fruitier than normal sparkling water.
The drinks seem to go well with all occassions, whether it is Christmas or a summer BBQ. Most of them time I drink them buy them selves, but I have just come to learn they taste great with vodka!
Try these, you will not be disappointed.
Asda's sparkling water is a tasty, refreshing drink for all ages. It comes in a variety of different flavours, and is an excellent value drink.
I started buying this drink when I was looking for something for my daughter, then 3. She wouldn't drink plain water, and I'm not a fan of cordials. She did- and still does- drink pure fruit juice regularly throughout the day, but I didn't think she was drinking enough fluid throughout the day, so I wanted an easy alternative which she would find tasty and interesting.
I found this drink down the fruit juices aisle at Asda. I was looking at the flavoured still water that was aimed at children, and found them to be extortionately priced. As I turned around, I noticed the 3 for #1 sign, or 39p each, so decided to have a look. The water ws available in a variety of different flavours, and was a good size, in 1ltr bottles. Some of the flavours sounded rather unappetising, for example Blackcurrant and Elderflower, but we have found that my daughter will drink all the flavours without complaint, so it's not as bad as it seemed!
We have found the Peach, and the Strawberries and Vanilla flavours to be the most popular in our household, although the Orange and andarin is really refreshing.
Excellent Value and great tasting.
I am a big carbonated drinks drinker. I was always drinking to much coke so decided I had to do something more healthy. So on my trip to Asda to do my weekly shop went down the drinks aisle and spotted this blue bottle and decided to try to it. Got nothing to lose really. At 39p per bottle or 3 for £1.00.
Clear blue bottle with blue lid. There is a picture of fruit on label depending which flavour you buy. This one had Blackberries & Elderflower on it. And a white square with ltr and No Added Sugar clearly marked on the label. So has to be better for you.Also on the label is ingredients,food facts, average values, how to store, contact us. So all the info is on the label.
Apple & Mango
Strawberry & Vanilla
Blackberry & Elderflower
Melon & Kiwi
Grapefruit & Mandarin
Cranberry & Lime
Lemon & Lime
So you have a good choice of flavours in this range and I have tried them all.
Blackberry & Elderflower was not to sure on but you only have to try it once if you dont like it. But what a surprise these flavours do work. Blackberry can be tasted and elderflower does come through but not to strong. Its very well balanced. And this one only contains 20 calories per 1ltr. Its slightly higher than the rest. But unless you like tap water it a very nice tasting drink. When chilled its more refreshing. Once you open bottle it should be drunk with in 3days or it does tend to go a little flat. But I dont need to worry when I drink 2 bottles a day.
Only comes in 1ltr size bottles.
Ingredients are written on label, carbonated spring water, apple juice from concentrate (2%), citric acid, flavourings, sweetners (aspartame, saccharin), preservatives (soduim Benzoate). Also a source of Phenylanine.
Phenylanine is a hidden danger to anyone consuming aspartame. Most consumers dont know that too much Phenylanine is a neurotoxin and excites neurons in the brain to the point of cellular death.
ADD/ADHD, emotional and behavioral disorders can all be triggered by too much Phenylanine in the daily diet.
Hope you try this product as its far better for you than pop and plenty of flavours to try. Give it a go.
Hope you enjoy reading this review.
