Disadvantages: somewhat addictive, sticky and stains
This delicious energy drink comes in a variety of flavours including apple, lemon and orange. Personally I have always preferred original. This may be down to the times as a child whilst ill I was told by my mam that it will make you feel better. Strangely enough I did begin to feel better on every occasion. This may be psychological, it may be the energy boost or it may be that my mam was a miracle worker. At the time as an impressionable child I would have sided with the latter but my `grown up` logical mind, or at least I like to believe that is true, tells me it may have been its energy boosting properties. The ingredients are unhealthy but when consumed as part of a balanced diet its fine.
In a 380ml bottle, Lucozade contains:
Hi in energy and 37% of your daily sugar allowance. It is no wonder it gives you a quick boost. This high sugar content means that you shouldn't over indulge and is not really suitable for children but as with anything, if enjoyed as part of a healthy, balanced lifestyle you will not feel any bad effects. Many people enjoy or even need a cup of coffee in the morning before they can function, I am one of these chemically dependent people but if I am in a rush I find Lucozade has the desired effect. I also find that hangovers are a little more bearable and my Tennis game improves somewhat. Again is this psychological or a miracle liquid. It tastes great and I am always disappointed when the last mouthful has gone. I must asmit I may be slightly addicted to this product but hey, we all have our vices.
The only issue I have with this drink is that it does tend to stain quite easily if spilled and can be very sticky. But hey, the obvious answer there would be not to spill any. There are many energy drinks on the market but for me this one is my favourite based on taste alone. Prices vary but usually you can pick up a 1 litre bottle from anywhere between £1 and £2. Multipacks of 365ml can be bought for about 65-80p per bottle.
Summary: I dont know if it really gives you a boost or if its psychological but the end result is the same
