As we are all a bit more health aware these days, cutting down on the pop can be a good idea. We all struggle to eat our five portions a day as recommended by the WHO, so juice can be a good alternative. You'll find these bottles and cans of pineapple juice in bars, off licences and also some supermarkets. If you actually want to buy a lot of juice, for breakfast and so on, then this is not the best option. These bottles are more suited to evening drinking or for use as mixers. For those who don't know, Schweppes is part of the Coca Cola company, at least in the UK anyway. They are well known for producing good quality mixers including tonic water, ginger ale, bitter lemon, soda water as well as russian. More often than not if you order a gin and tonic at the bar, it'll be a schweppes which is the mixer. In a 200ml bottle there's approx 10g of sugar, surprisingly actually quite a few grams less than a schweppes orange juice. You can also buy the same product in small cans of 125ml. Typically the product is a wholesale one, meaning you'll buy them in packs of 24 for about a tenner. Priced invidually you'll pay at least a pound, so a pretty good markup for opening the cap for you. Whilst the taste out of a bottle is never the same as cutting open a ripe pineapple and pulping it yourself, it's not a bad product, sweet and delicious. Good on it's own or with something. Essential for a number of great tropical cocktails such as a Mai Tai (rum, lime juice, apricot brandy and pineapple juice) or a pina colada (rum, pineapple juice, coconut cream)...mmm just the smell will take you to the warm shores of your favourite island in no time. Cheers!
This is such a delicious pineapple juice! It comes in a one-drink size bottle, and can be purchased from most pubs - I've never seen it in a larger bottle which is a real shame, I think, because that means I only really drink it in pubs, bars and restaurants. The taste of this pineapple juice is really authentic and leaves you in no doubt that good quality fruit has been used to make it. I find with pineapple juice that the uality varies enormously: one of the most common problems i have is that it tastes a bit watery. There's absolutely no sign of this problem here, and there also isn't the other problem, which is the slightly bitter taste of pineapples that you're pretty sure were a bit over the hill when they were juiced. On top of all that you get the reassurance that, for me, comes from such a well known and long established brand: for me there's no finger-crossing needed when I order this at the bar, just anticipation of a really delicious fruit drink.
