Advantages: refreshing, full of energy
Disadvantages: not for mums to be
Now this is a drink I think we ALL love,a sparkling drink, which is made by GlaxoSmithKline. Tried and trusted with me for over 40 years.
When I was a little girl it was only the original flavour in a normal size bottle, which was then made of glass, with a yellow coloured cellophane wrapping on it, with a top cover of shiny metalic gold foil.
Oooooh how we loved being ill to get this special drink. I used to drink it then put the cellophane on the tv screen which were all black and white in those days lol, I had my own lucozade coloured one.
Nowadays the drink comes in a plastic bottle in 2 sizes, a 500ml (the small bottle) and a 1 litre (the large bottle)
These retail at around 60p for small, and Home and Bargain have them from 39p to 59p, and around £1 for the large bottle.
The flavours are also a better variety now, there is original, orange, lemon,apple, cherry and cola maybe a few more. My favourite is orange, then again cherry comes close too.
Lovely drink, very refreshing, good for energy with its glucose, best served chilled.
The ingredients in it are
Glucose Fructose syrup 24%
Orange juice from concentrate 5%
Preservatives (Sodium Benzoate, Sodium Bisulphite)
Stabiliser (Acacia Gum)
Antioxidant (Ascorbic acid)
Colour (Beta Carotene)
I have also found that the ingredients are NOT on the multi pack bottles, but will be on the cardboard packaging that they come in.
Not good for mums to be, too much glucose would be bad for baba.
Well known family brand name too
Love it, especially as you dont have to be ill to drink it, and comes in sweets too.
Summary: excellent, tried and trusted drink
