Lucozade Energy Cherry
Advantages: Quite pleasant when you get used to it
Disadvantages: Didn't give an energy boost, very sugary and so fizzy!
I quite like the taste of the orange barley lucozade and the still isotonic orange drink but I am not so keen on the original flavour and so when my friend offered me a bottle of the cherry lucozade at work I was unsure whether to accept or not-but anything in the name of reviewing and so I rook it and this is my review!
Unlike the other lucozade bottles that I have seen this one is different in that it is predominantly black. It still has the lucozade name running up the centre of it and the same shape as the other bottles and so I do think you would know it was from the same brand. This one has pictures of cherries on the bottom as well as bursts of red splashes spraying from the top of the brand name.
Upon removing the black cap from the bottle I smelt the contents and found it smelt much like other cherry based drinks such as cherry tango. I first had a small sip of the red carbonated drink and found that I didn't really like it at all as it seemed to fizzy and a bit artificially but I tried again and found that as my taste buds got used to the flavour it was ok. The cherry flavour is of course artificial tasting but I find this with all cherry drinks I have tried. The drink is very very fizzy and I find that I can only take small sips of the drink rather than gulp it down or it just feels a bit much.
I can't say that this drink is my favourite lucozade because I much prefer the orange varieties. However, as a change every once in a while I think I would probably have this again. I can't say that it gave me any kind of energy boost though for my long working day sadly! The drink is not suitable for children under three years of age though to be honest my son is six and there is no way that I would give him this drink as they are full of sugar and he would be bouncing off the walls.
Each 380ml bottle contains:
I can be picked up in multipack form or single bottles from supermarkets should you be interested.
Thank you for reading my review!
Summary: I prefer the orange!
