“ Manufacturer: Ben Shaw's / Beverages Type: Lemonade / Beverages Class: Soft Drinks „
I do like to indulge in the odd drink of fizzy pop and I also like a bargain. So when shopping a few days ago in discount store B&M I spotted 500ml bottles of Ben Shaw's Cloudy Lemonade for just 31p each I thought it was certainly worth a try.
I had not heard of the bran Ben Shaw's before but it states on the bottle that it was established way back in 1871 and still uses traditional recipes.
The cloudy lemonade is packaged in a clear plastic bottle with a rather old fashioned looking label that has black and white images on the front. On the back of the label you can find detailed product information including ingredients listings, nutritional information and storage instructions.
I will say that I do normally choose to drink sugar free fizzy drinks to cut down on the calorific content so I was a little naughty when I choose this cloudy lemonade as a huge 250 calories per 500ml bottle. This is certainly not a drink to admit to drinking to your dentist!
It states on the bottle that this lemonade is best served cold and this is how I drank my bottle to allow it to be more refreshing as I drank it on quite a warm day. The lemonade itself is as it states cloudy in appearance has a nice lemon fragrance. Although this drink is very high in sugar it does have a nice tangy lemon taste and is not too sweet at all. I actually found this drink to be very refreshing indeed with it quenching my thirst perfectly.
Overall I did really enjoy this cloudy lemonade and it did taste like a traditional lemonade should being tart and tangy. But the high sugar content will ensure that this drink is an occasional treat for me but certainly one I will indulge in from time to time.
