this is not much a review but a question, why are there so few flavours without asperatine (aka aspartame) and is the absence of this chemical the reason the few flavours are more expensive? thank you for your timemy 4 stars are for the flavours without the chemical, there would be 5 stars but for the lack of flavours
I've always been a fan of diluting juice but have found that as I have got older the flavours are not as suited to my taste. So for years I haven't touched the stuff. But recently I was advised about drinking water for health reasons and since I can't stand plain water unless I'm lying in the sun on holiday I looked for a decent diluting juice and found high juice.
The flavour is stonrger as the concentration of juice is stronger at 55% of total content and therefore the flavour is more intense. The juice is adaptable to hot or cold water and can be mixed with soda water and added to spirits such as vodka quite nicely (not recommended for kids)
It is free of artificial flavourings, colours and flavours and all of the other bad stuff that kids shouldn't have. It does have 88 per 200ml serving and each bottle makes 250 servings. This is a little more calories than other diluting juices but you can flavour to taste.
Speaking of taste there is a while range but I like the Apple, Cherry and rapsberry as it is a strong flavour.
The main down side is the price. It is about £1.60 - £1.90 depending on where you shop but is often on special.
All in it's a good quality juice that cools you down in the summer and heats you up in the winter.
We bought this product from Tesco's as the juice we wanted had sold out. First impressions were good it had been clearly thought out, it had handles set into the bottle to make it easy to carry although I'm not sure if this is so they can put less juice in each bottle.
Robinsons has been established in 1823 as it says on the bottle so they should be a brand trust. There are no artificial colours flavours or sweeteners, meaning that it is more natural, and the making of it is more friendly to the environment, than other low quality drinks.
Looking at the ingredients there is a higher percentage of actual fruit in the drink than there is in other fruit squashes, such as Tesco's. It also has less energy per 100ml than other drinks meaning that it is much less likely to send young children hyper, although it does say that it should be strongly diluted if given to a toddler.
Overall this is a nice tasting drink that hydrates well and has much less bad stuff in it than other cheaper drinks however it is more expensive.
My review relates only to Robinsons High Juice Apple Flavour, as this is the only one we have had any experience of as a family. I say this, but a long time ago we tried the Grape & Melon variety and found that really delicious, but have never again seen it on sale in our small town, so I understood that this flavour may well not exist anymore, which is really a pity, as it was very popular with our children and incredibly tasty and refreshing.
However, on with the show, as they say. The Robinsons High Juice Apple variety is one of our staples in our household, definitely one of our favourites as a refreshing and thirst quenching drink after a hard day at work or school, or just for an anytime drink. The great thing about this juice is it really is HIGH. Its way up there in the taste stakes, with the most wonderfully appley flavour, very crispy and tart tasting, but not too tart and sweet enough to make you say yum when you drink it. My children both think its really good, in fact they are drinking it right now whilst playing a board game with their father...it disappears quite quickly, you know, in our house! I love it too, even though my sensitive stomach means that I can't drink it as often as I would like, mainly because there are simply certain things that I can't have too much of because for some reason or other they do not agree with me, no reflection at all on the juice or the fact that it is not good, just my jippy tummy!
It is available in our local Somerfield at £1.38 which is reasonable, I think, compared to other juices. I really recommend this.
High Juice - made by Robinsons, is available in ten different flavours. These include; Pink Grapefruit, Cherry & Raspberry, Apple Strawberry & Lychee, Blood Orange, Grape & Melon, Apple, Orange, Peach, and Pink Grapefruit - All of which are readily available at most supermarkets.
Robinsons pride themselves on using 55% real fruit juices in their High Juice range. This is really good, as many other fruit squashes only use a tiny percentage, if any, of actual fruit in their products. In general, the High Juice series of squashes are fairly heathy - containing only around 0.1g of fat, and just a trace of salt.
The real benefits however, are that they contain natural sugar instead of sweeteners. Although sweeteners will prevent tooth decay, and can help control weight - they do add a nasty saccharin taste. This is one of the reasons why I can't drink either Robinson's regular fruit squash or their Special R Range, as the sweetener is all I can taste. Most importantly, these sweeteners contain Aspartame - a product which studies have shown can cause headaches, and also relate to more series side effects.
Costing around 40 - 50p more than the standard Robinson's squashes, the product still offers value for money when you consider that the quality and content of ingredients is of high standard.
My favourite flavour is the Apple, Strawberry & Lychee variety which is especially fruity. Blood Orange and Grape & Melon are also good choices, but the latter can be quite hard to get hold of. All of these flavours last a long time, and don't have to be chilled - but serving with ice can be a good option for the summer.
The only potential downside to this product is the slightly higher price - and I suppose there could be more flavours on offer - but neither of these are serious criticisms.
I would definitely recommend Robinsons High Juice to anyone - with their excellent range of flavours. They also provide a good alternative to those who either can't stand the taste, or are worried about the chemical side effects of sweeteners. They are a bit more expensive than other squashes, but you get what you pay for in terms of quality of ingredients. In my opinion, the best squash around, and probably the closest you'll get to a fruit juice flavour in a squash.
Robinsons Hi Juice (made by Britvic) is a firm favourite in our household. I suppose it's technically a squash but it's as close to being a fruit juice as squash gets. It's more convenient than a fruit juice though as it stores in a plastic squash bottle out of the fridge and stays fresh for several months. It's made with 55% fruit juice though making it taste very similar to the fresh kind you keep in the fridge and have to drink up in a few days.
You can get this squash in loads of great flavours:
Apple, Cherry and Raspberry
Apple, Strawberry and Lychee
Grape and Melon
We've personally purchased Apple, Cherry and Raspberry, Grape and Melon, Orange, Peach and Pink Grapefruit. The only one I wasn't too keen on was the Peach though no-one else had any complaints about it. I think it was just that I didn't like peach much to be honest. The others were all a big hit with all the family including myself, my Mrs, my teens and my 3 year old Grandson.
It's good that we know we're all getting a decent bit of fruity goodness along with the great taste. Some squashes are cheap and full of little besides sugar and artificial flavours but these high juices are packed with real fruit and few additives besides. They're all very high in calories though so the Mrs pointed out that it's best to drink just one or two glasses a day and drink water in between. I checked the Apple, Cherry and Raspberry and found that there are 196kcal per 100ml. It doesn't say if that's diluted or undiluted but common sense dictates that it means undiluted!
I have to be honest about availability, I'm a bit unsure at the minute. We used to get this from Sainsburys but can't get it there at the moment. You should be able to get it from other supermarkets though and the price is about £1.20 per 1lt bottle. Four stars from me for this one - it tastes great and it's quite good for you but it's also high in calories and quite expensive for a squash style product too.
Blood Orange Juice from the Robinson's High Juice is damn tasty!
Here Are Some Facts About The Blood Orange.
The blood orange is a hybrid of ancient origin, possibly between the pomelo and the tangerine. It probably originated in Sicily .
Their are three types of blood orange:
The Moro, a recent addition to the blood orange family, is the most colorful of the three types
The Tarocco is a medium-sized fruit and is perhaps the sweetest and most flavorful of the three types
The Sanguinello (sahn-gwee-NEHL-loh), also called Sanguinelli in the US (its Sicilian common name)
Sometimes there is dark coloring on the exterior of the rind as well, depending on the variety of blood orange. The degree of coloration depends on light, temperature and variety .
Taste? sweet and juicy and slightly less acidic than regular oranges .
Looks? The blood orange is identified by its crimson, blood-colored flesh, almost on the reddish side compared to a grapefruit .
Touch? Its skin is often smooth but can be pitted more often than not .
Blood oranges are a good source of Vitamin C. The fruit's red pigment, anthocyanin, is an antioxidant that reduces the risks associated with many ailments, including age-related illnesses .
Blood oranges contain about 130 percent of the recommended amounts of Vitamin C, and diminish the risk of heart disease, some types of cancer and "bad" cholesterol build-up. They may also reduce the risk of cataracts, and aid in the body's healing process .
One medium-size orange contains 260 milligrams of potassium, 15 percent of the FDA's daily recommendation .
