Advantages: Tastes lovely and is cheaper than more popular brands of cola
Disadvantages: Aftertaste is not as nice as more popular brands
I'm a huge fan of cola, and like most people I usually drink coca cola! When at uni I couldn't afford to drink anything too expensive. We had a local tesco and they sold this stuff. You can buy it via bottles or cans. I personally have never tried it out the bottle, I have only bought cans. I really liked this drink and I will now go into more detail about this product.
You can buy a pack of 8 cans for £1.99. This is good value as they are the same size (330ml) as coca cola, but are around half th price. They are brilliant value. The cans are made from aluminium. They are very cheap and that promotes there appeal! Great for parties or to stock up the fridge, without destroying your bank balance. Cola can be addictive, and most of the time it's expensive. This is a cheap alternative.
Tastes very nice, it has a great cola taste, it's very fizzy out the can and has a great cola smell! The after taste however isn't as nice as coca cola, it's tangy. If you didn't know this was tesco's own brand, you would think it was expensive. For the price, the Taste is fantastic. This tastes great out of the can, I also used this for mixing drinks such as vodka and Bacardi. This tastes much better than the tesco value cola, which is nasty. You will be pleasantly surprised with this drink, it's well worth the try.
The can doesn't look as nice as other brands, but this doesn't matter at all. The cans are red and they have an image of cola in a glass with some ice which is rather appealing on a hot summers day. They are also nice to hold and easy to open, can't complain.
I was really impressed with this product from tesco. The reason why I like this so much is because there is not much difference between other more successful brands. I don't see the point in paying silly money for expensive drinks when you can buy this for a much cheaper price, it's brilliant value and is worth the try. It may not be as glamorous, but it's perfect to have at home in the fridge. I am going to be giving this 4 stars as its really nice and surpassed my expectations. Give it a go! :)
Thanks for reading, hope it helped you out
