      A lovely drink on the odd occasion

      I don't often go the the drinks machine at work, I usually have tea or coffee but today I fancied a cold drink, and wanted something more than water, so I went to have a look. I was pleased to find they had Oasis, as I didn't really fancy a fizzy drink. I chose Blackcurrant and Apple.

      The bottle contains 500ml of the drink, and is a clear plastic bottle, with a bright blue label, and blue screw top. The deep burgundy coloured drink shows through the clear plastic. Oasis is written end on across the label, with blackcurrant apple and the registration mark below that.

      There is a photograph either side of the name showing apples blackcurrants and other fruits splashing into water. On the reverse of the label there is the work Oasis again but about half the size and above it says still and fruity, and below it is written "Thirsty? job done"

      The label tells us this is a still apple and berry fruit drink with sugar and sweeteners, and that it is best served chilled. Right at the bottom of the label it had "another (well tasty) product of the Coca-cola company.

      When I twisted off the cap and took the first taste it was very refreshing, with a strong blackcurrant taste. The apples added a nice tang to the taste, and made it a real thirst quenching drink. The flavour was just right for me, not too sweet and not too tart, a perfect mix. I really enjoyed it. I definitely think this was better for having been in a cooled machine, I don't think it would have been nearly so refreshing if it had been in my bag all day, and been at room temperature, although it still would have been drinkable.

      I find a can of coke which is about 300mls often is too much to drink all at onee, and I often end up wasting some, so I thought this would be too much to drink at one sitting, although that didn't bother me becuase it is a still drink so wouldn't loose it's fizz, and had a screw top so I could fasten it again and save the rest, but it wasn't too much. It slipped down so easily before I knew it I'd drunk the lot. Good job it isn't alcoholic!

      The only thing that I would say was a negative, was that this drink is quite high calorie, for a drink. I usually drink diet drinks which are negligible in calories, so to me this was a whopping amount, at 88 calories for the bottle. Perhaps I should look for Oasis zero!

      Nutritional info per 500ml bottle

      energy 88kcal
      sugar 20.6g
      everything else was trace or nothing

      The ingredient information says that it contains a source of phenylalanine, so anyone with an allergy to that should steer clear.

      My bottle cost 80p from the works drinks machine.

        I do like Oasis and I buy them daily but I think the new Oasis advert on TV is dreadful!- I do not wish to see animals get hurt! I think it is appaling that you have put that on national television and I shall let you know I shall not be buying your products again and neither will most of the people I know until that advert is removed!
        hope you act on this issue.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Everyone has a favourite soft drink, and being that most are widely available in many shops these days, it's possible to discover new ones, or even rediscover an old favourite. The range seems to grow bigger all the time, but a nice alternative to carbonated soft drinks is Oasis, which remains as popular as ever.

        Oasis has been around for a while - about nine or ten years - and seems to be a hit. I used to drink this mainly when all varieties of Oasis came in a glass bottle, not a plastic one. I only rediscovered them last year, and Berry Apple (or Summer Fruits as it's now called) was the variety I used to drink regularly.

        You can still get the Summer Fruits flavour, but I haven't heard it referred to as 'Berry Apple', if that was what it was called when it was launched.

        Oasis is a nice refreshing drink, sweet, fruity and not at all sour. It's cherry red in colour, and this is unsurprising really - it tastes mainly of cherry and strawberry. Several fruit juices are put into the drink, and these are apple, strawberry, redcurrant and cherry.

        Oasis Summer Fruits comes in two varieties - the original one, and a low calorie version (or 'light'). It's easy to distinguish between the two, as the light version has a lighter-coloured label. The labels on both varieties have the 'Oasis' logo in big white letters, on a red oval background, and the words 'Summer Fruits' next to it.

        You can really taste the fruit flavours, and combined with still water it's a pleasant and not overly sweet drink. On the bottle's label you are advised to drink it chilled, and refrigerate after opening - this may be to ensure you get the best taste from it.

        Oasis costs you about 85p for a 500ml bottle, so that's not a great deal of difference to fizzy drinks of that size bottle. The standard Summer Fruits flavour is widely available, but the light variety is less so - check around if you'd prefer this type as it can be found in larger shops/stores.

        Nutrition Information

        Per bottle (500ml)

        Energy - 785kJ/185kcal
        Carbohydrate - 9g
        Protein - 0g
        Fat - 0g

        These figures are for the original Oasis Summer Fruits. Obviously the nutrition figures are considerably less for the light variety, which is virtually sugar-free. You can taste the difference between the two but both are equally nice and drinkable.

        I definitely give Oasis Summer Fruits the thumbs up - you'd be hard pushed to find a better ready mixed soft drink, especially at that price. I would recommend both varieties to anyone who enjoys a nice soft drink from time to time.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          There seems to be loads of different types of soft drinks that are available these days, ranging from fizzy drinks to more ordinary fruit-flavoured drinks like squash - Oasis is one type of these drinks. Oasis drinks come in several different flavours, but my favourite is probably the 'Summer fruits' one, which contains strawberry, cherry, redcurrant and apple. There is another widely available flavour, the citrus punch one, but I’m not so keen on it. Both flavours are widely available in most shops and supermarkets. The Summer fruit flavour has a dark blue label, with the 'Oasis' logo written vertically in white letters, in a red oval shape. The rest of the label has pictures of strawberries, apple halves, cherries and redcurrants on it. There is also a small part of the label with the nutrition information, ingredients, and other consumer info. The bottle is also clear, so you can easily see inside that the summer fruits drink is a dark red colour. Twisting the cap off, you can't really smell anything once it's opened - it does smell a little of strawberries and apples, but not much else. Taking a sip, it doesn't have a particularly strong taste at first, although the taste of apples and strawberries does hit you in the aftertaste. I couldn't really taste either cherries or redcurrants in it, if it didn't say on the label that it contained these, I wouldn't have guessed they were in it! The overall taste of the drink is fairly sweet, too. It says on the bottle to 'drink chilled', and I agree; it does taste much nicer, and more refreshing when it has been left in the fridge for a while. The Oasis Summer fruit soft drink contains water, sugar, fruit juices (about 5%), and other flavourings and colours. Each bottle of Oasis is about 500ml in size - I don'
          ;t think I've ever seen it available in any other size bottle except this. A bottle of Oasis costs about 85p, although I have bought it for a couple of pence cheaper in some places. Oasis fruit drinks are also made by Coca-Cola. Nutrition Information (per 100ml): Energy: 157 KJ/37 Kcal Protein: 0g Carbohydrate: 9g Fat: 0g My overall thoughts about 'Oasis Summer fruits' soft drink is that it is a nice, refreshing drink, which is about as nice as any other soft drink I've tasted. The drink is very thirst-quenching, and has a nice, refreshing taste to it - even more so when it's chilled, as I said above. One disadvantage is that it does contain quite a lot of sugar, as is the case with most soft drinks, but I would definitely buy it again. I would say that it is nicer than most fizzy drinks, particularly as it doesn't contain as much sugar. It is also a bit more expensive for what you get, just a simple fruit drink, but it's worth it. If you like fruit drinks, or prefer a soft drink that isn't fizzy, then I would definitely recommend this.
