Ribena has been a constant in my life ever since I was a kid. My favourite was always blackcurrant out of a carton. I am 27 now and it is still very much my favourite blackcurrant drink.
You can purchase Ribena in the small cartons with a little straw to pop through the silver circle in the top or you can buy 500ml plastic bottles. There is something about the bottles I personally just cannot warm to; maybe it is nostalgic reasons for the cartons. The cartons and the bottles have the same design - deep purple with little blackcurrants on. The bottles are alot handier than the cartons if you are out and about but the cartons are great for lunchboxes and children. There is also a concentrate bottle available for home use which you dilute with water. Personally I do not like the dilutable Ribena. I always feel as though it has a metallic taste to. Almost like swallowing iron. I really do not like it.
Ribena also makes other flavours; off the top of my head I know of strawberry, orange and apple.
Ribena from a carton is a wonderful taste. It is sweet and you can really taste the blackcurrant. The blackcurrant taste is very fresh and hydrating. It is deep purple in colour (which does stain if you get it on clothes!). It is best served cold but I am like that with most drinks. I like everything ice cold.
It must be said that Ribena isn't the healthiest of drinks out there as it has a high sugar content it is a once in a while drink rather than an everyday drink.
