I have cold - get me some Lucozade!
Member Name: ally_kats_mama
Advantages: Tasty, fizzy, great after sports/colds
Disadvantages: Lots of sugar!
Lucozade has been around for a long time. It is a drink I have on occassion. I do not have it too regularly as I don't like to drink too much of an energy drink but it is a very tasty drink.
It comes in a 500ml bottle which is a tall and shapely bottle. It is almost hourglass in appearance and it makes it very easy and comfortable to hold. Depending on the flavour of the Lucozade you have chosen will determine the colour of the label. If you have purchased the Original flavour then it will red/yellow/orange label with LUCOZADE in its type face on the bottle. The rest of the bottle will be clear plastic so you can see the sun coloured drink inside. It has a screw top lid for ease when you are out and about. You can easily drink some and just stick it back in your bag. A bottle of Lucozade usually retails for £1.00-£1.50 depending on where you are purchasing it from.
Lucozade is available in many flavours. There is Original, Lemon, Summer Fruits, Apple, Cola, Orange, Cherry, Tropical Fruits and more. My personal favourites are the cherry and lemon. I find the lemon flavour very refreshing. All of them taste really nice and the taste is strong and long lasting. It feels nice and smooth as you drink.
The drink is very fizzy and when you first unscrew the bottle it lets off a mist of fizz! I like the fact that it is fizzy but this also tells me that there is a fair bit of sugar and the like in Lucozade which doesn't make it great as part of a regular diet.
I drink Lucozade the most when I have been ill with a cold. I always find myself zapped of energy so I always reach for a bottle of it to pick me up and kick start my energy levels again. Most people drink Lucozade after playing sports or doing a work out
Lucozade is not recommended for children as it is an energy drink and will cause them to be hyperactive. I am unsure if there are any other side effects to this. It is also not to be used to rehydrate youself after sickness bugs.
Lucozade is the best energy drink out there in my opinion - I personally cannot even have a can of Red Bull near me without wanting to be sick! It has been around for a long time and has retained its popularity. It is a nice drink but not one for a regular basis.
