“ Manufacturer: Marks & Spencer / Type: Soft Drink „
My partner has just moved home. He was hesitant at first but his Landlord wanted his flat back, so we went on the hunt for somewhere nice. Luckily he has found a really lovely flat and is just settling in.
The good thing about it is also that there is a Marks & Spencer Food store within a 5 minute walking distance! Well, I say it's a good thing and in one way it is , because Marks & Spencer do some amazing foods and excellent quality products. They can be a bit expensive however, so it may be the case that my partners shopping bills now go up!! However, it is rare to be disappointed by Marks & Spencer food/drink.
We have popped in there a few times over the last week and the other day he bought some of this delicious Sill lemonade.
It tastes refreshing, lemony, zingy and sort of clean tasting! This is a great drink for our current hot weather. Speaking of which I cannot believe we have had a nice spell of it again!! It is essential to drink this lemonade chilled or add some ice cubes to it.
Marks & Spencer Still lemonade currently costs £1.99 for 2 x 1 litre cartons.
Lemon Juice (12%)
Lemon cells (3%)
There are 115 kcals per 250ml
Marks & Spencer state on the carton that they have 'squeezed 2 ½ lemons per carton' . That's the sort of thing I like to see about drinks such as this.
Marks & Spencer also state on the carton that 'The finest lemons have been selected from the Murcian and Andalucian regions in the South of Spain at their peak of ripeness to bring you this fine traditional still lemonade with a light, refreshing and zingy flavour which offers the perfect thirst quenching drink'.
This really is a top quality product with a good flavour and the taste of real lemons. I think its healthy too. and the price is great. I think it deserves a 5 star rating!
Whenever i'm in town, i'll be sure to go to Marks and Spencer's, even if it is only to get my dinner.. This Still Lemonade is a must have to set off a lovely sandwich as part of a meal deal!
At first, i wasn't really sure it'd be nice, as i don't like bits in my drinks.. But i was buying a meal deal and it was the only appealing looking drink on the shelf. The little 300ml bottle has a square bottom and a 'bottle shaped' top, is clear and made in a soft plastic with a clear label around it that shows the M&S logo and states that it is a Still Lemonade. It is simple but somehow made me think it would be of a high quality.
The taste is absolutely mind blowing! It tastes just like lemons, but a lot sweeter and without the tangy aftertaste you would get with just squeezing lemons into a glass. The consistency isn't very watery (but not thick either), so the drink actually swirls down your throat nicely rather than too quickly and it really quenches your thirst.
If you reaaaaally don't like bits in your drinks/yoghurts, then you may not like it.. But for me, they aren't a problem and definitely add to the flavour!
I don't particularly enjoy vegetables and fruit and try to eat or drink things that are fruit based and help towards my five a day. The Marks and Spencer Still Lemonade is one of those I drink. I have always liked lemon squash and lemon flavour, I have just never fancied an actual lemon.
You can get a 'to go' option (300 ml) which is served in the meal deals or you can buy the larger carton option (1 Litre) if I fancy a quick drink I buy the smaller bottle but I regularly buy the large cartons which cost 2 for £3. The smaller option is £1.05.
The flavour is very sweet and can be too sweet, if you don't have a sweet tooth you probably wouldn't like this. It can also taste quite bitter as well. It can be a bit hit and miss but is very nice, it has real lemon pieces (or bits as I call them) in, and makes me feel better about not eating fruit or veg.
The best way to drink this drink, is straight from the fridge, it isn't nice when it gets warm and it does go off fairly quickly and is seriously disgusting - I would drink this fresh, if the bottle has been opened I would drink the contents within a few days.
The ingredients are fairly natural as shown below:
Unpasteurized freshly squeezed lemon juice (13%)
Whole lemon (2%)
This drink has a very fruity taste and is very thirst quenching. I like it and it isn't too unhealthy and actually does contain fruit.
Marks & Spencer Still Lemonade
Description: Manufacturer: Marks & Spencer / Type: Soft Drink
I am a huge fan of still lemonade, I find it really refreshing and thirst quenching and it also reminds me of being a kid, when I used to make my own. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to find in shops nowadays, as it seems to be replaced more and more with fizzy varieties.
I was shopping in Marks & Spencers this morning and spotted this on the shelves so bought some, took it home and refrigerated it and looked forward to trying it out. A 300ml bottle cost me £1.05 which wasn't the cheapest, but being M&S, I hoped that it would be good and worth the money.
The bottle itself is clear, so you can see what you are getting and it instructs you to shake the drink before consuming. There is also nutritional info on the back.
I found this drink really tasty, it has little bits of lemon in it which I hadn't expected, and was quite tart, and not too sweet - just how a still lemonade should be, in my opinion.
Ingredients are as follows;
Unpasteurised freshly squeezed lemon juice (13%)
Whole lemon (2%)
I did really enjoy this drink, it was very refreshing and had a decent lemon taste which didn't taste artificial, in fact the whole thing tasted really natural, and though it was expensive, was delicious so I would certainly buy it again. It might be too expensive for everyday use, but as a tasty and thirst quenching treat from time to time, this product works for me.
In summary, if you like still lemonade with a natural taste, and little bits through it, then you should definitely try this one, it is great! 4 stars from me, simply because of the price.
I love my generally fizzy lemonade and usually tend to stick to the big brands. Recently I was intrigued by a variety of Still Lemonade on offer whilst browsing around my local M&S store, so thought I had to give it a try. So was this a worthwhile thing to do?
I have to say that it definetly was as it tasted like nothing else I've had before, but in a good way. The closest thing I can compare it to is probably lemon squash, however it didn't taste as watery as this. The taste was quite lemony and in addition it was had a refreshing flavour to it as well. It makes a great alternative to the fizzy lemonade I'm normally used to.
The bottle set me back just under £1, which is quite pricey for the amount you get but I guess with M&S you're paying for quality and you can definetly sense the quality of this particular drink.
If you love your lemonades, I would definetly recommend sampling this delight from M&S, you really won't be left disappointed. I just wonder if some of the other manufactors will start producing their own versions to offer some competition in the market.
I'm a secret 'fresh' lemonade drinker!
I love fruit juice, although I am fussy and stick to what I know. I have always drunk squash and love orange, lemon and lime.
The Product ~~~~~~~
Marks & Spencer offer 'still lemonade' that is made with freshly squeezed lemons, or so it says on the bottle.
The bottle holds 300ml (approx), it is a clear bottle with a silver screw top lid. The bottle isn't massive and I think it is just enough for a refreshing drink, I wouldn't want too much more.
The ingredients are:
Unpasteurised freshly squeezed lemon juice (13%)
Whole lemon (2%)
The drink doesn't taste watered down like so many juices, it does taste of lemon and is not too sweet, although if you drink a lot it can be.
It is fruity and has lemon bits in it, you can't really taste them, I'm not overly keen on bits in my juice but really enjoy them in this. Don't ask me why, I don't get it myself.
You are advised on the bottle to shake it before drinking, which I do, perhaps this shakes all the bits up, although they are obviously still there.
What I think ~~~~~~~~~~~
It is a get drink to have instead of a snack, I normally have it mid morning (I can never make it to lunch) - and it does fill me and I don't then need a biscuit or something.
The thing I like about it is the fact Marks & Spencer have put a reasonable size box on the size with a green outline and the green recycling sign. I like the fact they are sustainable as well as promoting recycling to its customers. There is information about where to find out about your local recycling scheme.
This drink needs to be kept in the fridge if it's not being drunk straight away.
The cost ~~~~~~~~~~~~
£1.02 for the 300ml or £1.98 for the larger container of 1 litre.
