The perfect hangover cure in multiple flavours!
Member Name: kpdude
Advantages: Lots of flavours, great for hangovers!
Disadvantages: Not the best tasting drink, could be fizzier
I have indulged in the odds bottle of Lucozade over the years. When I was a child it used to be one of my favourite drinks and I have fond memories of always received a case on my Birthday's and over Christmas!
Now I will be honest, I kind of went off the flavour, and these days I only really buy it when I'm feeling rough in the mornings, especially the morning after a big night out. I don't know what the special ingredient is, but when ever I'm a bit hung over, I buy myself a bottle of Lucozade and it sorts me right out!
In terms of taste, there are 2 main flavours, Original and Orange. There are also other flavours, but these are not as common and you may struggle to find these in most places. Flavours I have tried are Lemon and Apple. From performing further research there are also flavours in Tropical, Cherry and Blackcurrant.
Although Lucozade would be classes as a fizzy drink, it is not too fizzy. What I mean by this is that is does not have as much fizz as drinks such as Coke and Sprite. I would actually prefer if it was more fizzy.
The Original flavour has quite a bland taste to it, but for some reason it's my favourite.
Lucozade is full of a substance called Glucose, which is a form of sugar. This ensures that if you will get an energy boost from consuming it.
Lucozade is generally sold in a 500ml bottle, but you can also find it in a 1000ml bottle, cans and even a plastic carton. The 500ml bottle is generally sold at around £1 a bottle, although if you buy it from the large supermarkets, they should be cheaper.
I would definitely recommend buying some Lucozade if you feel you need a energy kick, or are feeling a little rough. But if you are looking for a tasty and refreshing drink, there are certainly other things I would go for.
Summary: A decent drink for a much needed energy kick
