Lucozade Energy Cherry
Disadvantages: far too sugary
As a rule I absolutely hate Lucozade! However, recently I have been a little under the weather and not getting very much sleep so I have been struggling somewhat for energy during the day. My mum called round one morning clutching a six pack of Lucozade which shocked me as she knows how much I hate the stuff!! Looking closer I realised it was a different flavour, and that was Cherry. I normally quite like the taste of cherry drinks though I wasn't convinced I would like this very much.
Lucozade Cherry comes in a 380ml bottle and came in a pack of six (it may well be sold seperately but I have never seen it on sale singly). The bottle is plastic and has the same appearance as the standard Lucozade bottles but is in a black and dark red colour with red bubbles bursting out all round the rim of the bottle. There is a curve in the centre of the bottle which makes it easy and comfortable to hold. Lucozade is written in the familiar large yellow lettering up the side of the bottle along with pictures of bright red chunky cherries around the base. It tells us on the bottle that Lucozade gives you a physical edge!
Cherry Lucozade is a sparkling soft drink which is a dark burgundy colour. As soon as you remove the lid from the bottle you can smell the strong cherry aroma which is really appealing!! The first taste of the drink really surprised me in that it was just bursting with flavour and it was very refreshing on the hot day. The cherry flavour is really strong and it doesn't taste like an energy drink at all, just like a standard soft drink.

I was shocked to see that one bottle of Lucozade cherry equates to 51% of an adults sugar GDA!
I can't honestly say that drinking the Lucozade had any effect on my energy levels at all! I'm not too sure what I was really expecting but at no point did I feel like I had gained any energy at all, I simply felt that it satisfied my thirst and was tasty!
Would I recommend Lucozade cherry? No not at all, simply due to the sugar content in there! Yes the drink is very nice but it didn't have any effect on me sadly though I know people who swear by it. The six pack of Lucozade was priced at £2.00 on offer at Asda so it was an ok price to pay for six bottles but I wouldn't personally pay any more for them.
Thank you for reading my review.
Summary: An ok drink
