I recently discovered this drink and I'm glad that I did! For most of my adult life I have had a full fat Coke addiction and could easily drink 2 litres a day :/
I have tried to cut down on my intake over the past couple of years but have struggled to find a healhier alternative which I could enjoy - I'm so fussy that I don't like tea, coffe, water, diet drinks..... basically anything that isn't Coca Cola!
Anyway, as part of my New Year's resolution for 2015 to lose weight I have given up Coke altogeher and I happened to find this drink through trial and error as I bought several of the sugar free drinks from Tesco as they were 3 for £1.50. To be honest the other drinks weren't something I could stomach on a regular basis but this one I really liked and I have stocked up.
It is nice and fizzy and has a lovely sweet taste to it. It doesn't really taste like lemonade, but it doesn't taste like rasperries either. It must just be a blend of the two fruits but whatever the taste is I like it.
My partner however says that it is far too sweet for his liking so it clearly isn't to everyone's tastes but at 7 calories a glass it is perfect for me and I find it very refreshing to have a cold glass when I get in from work. I imagine that it will be perfect for a summer refreshment too.
I bought this lemonade for just 54p from Tesco and that was for a two litre bottle.
The lemonade is pink in colour and it looks really nice. It smells nice too, a sort of sweet scent that smells yummy and inviting. The drink is easy to pour into a glass. It is a carbonated drink, so it is fizzy. However, it isn't too fizzy and it can be drunk at any time of day.
I find the taste of the drink as quite sweet and tangy. It does taste really different compared to usual lemonade and I like the taste. It leaves a nice aftertaste in your mouth after drinking and it leaves you feeling refreshed and hydrated. The only thing that I dislike about the taste is that it isn't very natural. I don't know what they use to colour the drink (I think it's cranberries but don't quote me on that) but it tastes sort of fake and synthetic and far too sweet. Like I said, I do like the taste. However, after drinking this for a few days I got bored of the taste and I was afraid that the drink may be rotting my teeth as it is fizzy and contains acid.
Would I recommend this drink? I would as it does have it's good points. It's a great summer drink as it's really refreshing and it tastes better when it's been chilled. However, the chemical taste lets it down somewhat.
I wouldn't buy it again.
We were persuaded to buy some Tesco pink lemonade by our little lad the other week. We went ahead as it was under 60p for a big two litre plastic bottle. I was actaully quite surprised he asked for this as he usually avoids anything pink at all costs.
The bottle is plastic and plainly packaged and looks cloudy and pink in the bottle. It comes with the normal screw top lid and I could feel the pressure of the fizz inside as I took off the lid.
Once it's poured into a large glass it looks sort of like a girly drink and it was very fizzy to pour and very fizzy to drink. The fizz seemed to remain in this drink for a long time after the bottle was opened too.
It tastes quite nice, a lot better than the 18p el-cheapo own brand ordinary Tesco lemonade I was unfortunate enough to try recently. It is sweet tasting and doesn't leave a queer taste in my mouth after I have drank it.
The little lad really loves this drink and says it makes his nose fizz. My other half isn't as keen as we are, she says it's too sweet and cloying a taste for her.
Personally I am pleased with this fizzy pop and think it makes a nice change from the usual Coke or Pepsi drinks we normally have. I will more of this.
I was at tesco this weekend topping up on food for a family bbq as we have had stunning weather here in scotland and it does not happen often so we thought we would make the most of it. While browsing the fizzy juice isle looking for juice i spotted the tesco own brand pink lemonade and thought it would be worth a try.
It cost under 50p for a 2 litre bottle, which i feel is good value for money as you can pay £1.90 for a 2 litre bottle of coke or irn bru. It can be bought from tesco instore or on-line.
It comes in a 2l litre clear bottle with a screw cap lid to keep the fizz in the bottle. It has the tesco label on the bottle with all the usual details on the bottle. The bottle can be recycled, which i like to do as i hate waste and to save room in my normal household bin as its only emptyed once a fortnight.
The juicy is baby pink in colour with a cloudy appearance. it looks nice in a posh glass or a plastic tumbler. My daughter calls it posh juice! When you open the juice it lets out a large fizz and keeps fizzy for a good few days in the bottle and does not loose its fizz when poured. You can taste the lemon well, its very refreshing. The lemon is not overpowering or to sour. There is also a slight after taste of cramberries which may add to the pink colour. It was a perfect choice for the bbq and went down well with the family and made a great impression on my 6 year old daughter who asked me to buy it again next time i go food shopping.
I like it served cold either in the fridge for a few hours or by adding ice cubes. It is a perfect drink for a hot summers day for a picnic or bbq. It very thirst quenching and great tasting and i will be buying more for that reason and its also cheap to buy.

Whilst walking through Tesco, I was looking for something that wouldn't harm my student budget. I came across pink lemonade. Being a typical girl, the pink colour drew me towards it. And the 62p price for 2 litres was a bargain for me. So I chose to purchase this instead of getting fanta or cola.
I enjoy normal lemonade so figured that cranberry flavoured lemonade would be just as nice. Also, there is no added sugar which I thought would be a good thing. I was totally wrong. It didn't taste very sweet. It was almost tasteless. I suppose it's nice for a party where no one really cares, or just as a diet fizzy drink. But it's not something that I'm going to buy again.
For it's price, I suppose I can't really expect it to be all that.
It's supposed to taste of cranberry but I still can't taste it.
This is by far a great alternative to the plain basic clear lemonade sold in many supermarkets. The Tesco pink lemonade is something that I tend to like buying in order to save some money or whenever I fancy a change of fizzy drink rather than buying the usual branded coca cola or tango orange fizzy drinks.
The pink lemonade costs only 55p for a (2L) bottle which is a bargain compared to other 2 Litre standard size bottle drinks sold in shops.
It comes in a standard wide plastic bottle with the name tag label placed on the middle of the bottle drink.
The colour of the pink lemonade is clearly visible and looks very appealing and nice to look, as the first think that catches your eye is the lovely bright pink colour of the lemonade.
The drink its self tastes very nice and fruity indeed as it is bursting with refreshing and delightful tastes all of which tastes nice and sweet but not too over blaringly sweet. Its very thirst quenching and when ever I buy a bottle it does not seem to last long in the fridge as we tend to consume it within less than 3 days.
The drink stays lovely and fizzy right to the end. But I would recommend placing it straight in the fridge for best results f or a longer added fizz so that the fizz does not prematurely go flat.
I have no negative things to say about the lovely pink lemonade as I can surely say that its on my list of most recommend drinks to buy and for 55p this a real bargain not to be missed.
This was a bit of a random purchase! I was looking for a nice fizzy drink to have whilst watching a film, and I decided on Pink Lemonade, instead of my usual Diet Coke!
I was attracted to it as it reminded me of childhood parties and, as a girlie girl, I loved the colour! I was then impressed that it was low in calories, and even more impressed when I saw the price!
The 2 litre bottle is only 55p from Tescos - what a bargain! You cannot even get a can of Coke for 55p nowadays! I was expecting this to cost about £1.
The bottle is a normal clear bottle, with a pink twist cap and a pink label showing a glass of the lemonade.
The liquid is a light pink which shows through the clear bottle which is even more attractive!
When opening the bottle, there is a strong fizz sound made, and the drink is lovely and fizzy right to the end. However, we drank the whole bottle in one go so I'm not sure how long the fizz would last if it was left for a while.
We drank the drink after it had chilled in the fridge for a couple of hours and I think this really improved the flavour.
The taste is sort of fruity, and is slightly sour which I find quite nice and refreshing.
We used to have this drink at parties with a scoop of icecream and it really work well!
This is a lovely drink and well worth the 55p, and for 5 kcal a glass, you cannot go wrong!
I bought this drink for the first time when I was pregnant. Having never tried any brand of it before I did not know what to expect. On first taste it was very fizzy and seemed to stay fizzy for quite some time after opening. Although it was so good it never lasted very long. It has a very tangy, tart taste which really makes your tastebuds tingle. There is also a hint of sourness about it. It is very thirst quenching and perfect for a hot day sitting in the garden. It was the only thing that would really satisfy my thirst when I was pregnant and I ended up really craving it and couldn't get enough. I tasted it both from the fridge and from the cupboard and it was a lot better chilled, as most soft drinks are. Overall it tastes like it is made by a premium manufacturer rather than just Tesco own brand, and is definitely a lot cheaper.
At under 50p for a litre of drink, this is the perfect drink for anyone sick of diet coke and similar.
A girly, sweet scent, this has plenty of fizz for the money, and tastes just as good flat!
I bought this for a drink in the summer, but this is a great buy for mixing up girly drinks and cocktails in your own home, for pre drinks or parties.
In terms of the stats, this has low calories when compared to ginger beer or full fat coke, so you get a sweet treat, without paying for it on the hips.
My brother and sister both under 10 love this, and it goes down really well with malibu, or other sweet based rums. I also find it appealing for covering up the yak effect of vodka!
Great for kids, students, or just a sweet sugar kick after dinner if your being good this new year, this is well worth the 47p price tag and worth picking up next time you do your big shop.
When I was looking for a bottle of fizzy pop in Tesco the other day I couldn't decide what I wanted so I ended up buying this pink lemonade because it looked unusual and very pretty in the bottle. I always thought pink lemonade was just lemonade with a bit of food colouring added but the colour comes from cranberries and the ones in this drink are from North America.
It was a bit of a let down though and one thing that did my head in was that it doesn't say on the label that it's a diet drink but it is and that means there isn't enough sugar in it for me because I'm not mad keen for tangy lemonade and thought this one might be a bit sweeter than usual because of the colour.
The thing is even though this isn't very sweet it's not that tangy either and I can't hardly taste the lemons in this lemonade. It's been sweetened with a bit of apple juice but you can't taste this at all and to me it just tastes like flavoured fizzy water instead of lemonade. I also think it's got a bit of a chemical taste that is probably because of the sweeteners that have been added to it, it's not overpowering and you won't notice it after a few sips but it's there and is quite strong at first.
I had 2 glasses of this pink lemonade and it made me feel proper bloated, I thought I'd tell you this even though that might be because I don't drink much fizzy pop but I did find it very gassy.
It's quite a refreshing drink but it doesn't take long for it to go flat once you've taken the top off so if you're going to buy a 2 litre bottle then make sure there are a few of you there to have a glass to save wasting it. I'm just not mad on the flavour of this pop because even though I don't drink a lot of fizzy pop I know the difference between good and bad quality lemonade. When I fancy it I usually get Schweppes because that is the only lemonade my local shop sells and that tastes nice of sweet lemons, I was expecting this pink one to taste nice and fruity but it was a disappointment for me and I won't buy it again even though it's cheap at 54p a bottle.
I love a good fizzy soft drink but am trying to save costs whether possible so when I saw this 2 litre bottle of soft drink for just 47p or 3 bottles for £1.20 I had to pick some up and put them in my already overloaded basket!
The 2 litre bottle is just a standard plastic bottle (can be recycled where facilities exist - 90% of the UK at present) which is clear and has a pink plastic cap that's very thin and a little fiddly to put back on. The bottle has a pink label with the Tesco logo, nutritional information, calorie content, ingredients etc and there are just 5 calories and 0.4g of sugar per serving so this is a pretty much guilt free fizzy treat for me.
This drink is lovely and fizzy when i open it and I drank this bottle over a couple of days and providing the lid is securely fastened there is no reason why this won't keep it's fizz for the entire time. This pink lemonade was quite fizzy without having too many bubbles to get all up my nose when I swallowed and it does have a lovely flavouring to it which comes from the North American Cranberries as well as being a vivid pink colour.
This is a great bottle of drink to buy for kids birthday parties or just for an occasional fizzy treat. Sometimes I make up ice cubes with fizzy drinks for my nieces & nephews and this is so cheap you can make a ton of ice cubes and even if they get wasted (dropped on the floor etc) it's not the end of the world.
I don't get a horrible sugary coating on my teeth with this drink as I go with some other fizzy soft drinks. I am rating this drink 4/5 as it's a decent price, recyclable bottle and is quite tasty and delicious, however, it's not the nicest pink lemonade I've ever tried, hence knocking off one star.
I adore pink lemonade but I don't drink it very often as it generally a a full sugar drink and I very rarely drink those. So when I saw this drink in Tesco I thought I'd try it. What isn't clear from the name of this drink is that it is technically a diet drink with only 5 cals per 250ml and 0.4g of sugar which are naturally occuring which is all good and it only costs 47p per 2 litre bottle. The final icing on the cake was that the drink was described as being "made with real North American cranberries".
When you pour your first glass you are greeted by a pale pink liquid with plenty of bubbles bursting and no discernible scent. With the first mouthful the first thing I noticed was how bubbly it was, although these were small bubbles. Once I got over that initial sensation I was waiting for the fruity taste but it wasn't really there. There was a hint of lemon which had the sourness tempered by something - probably the cranberries. On the whole I would say that it tastes like sparkling water with a weak fruit juice added. On looking at the ingredients label it becomes obvious why the fruit taste is so low when there is only 6% lemon juice concentrate, 2% apple juice concentrate and 2% cranberry juice concentrate.
This drink isn't undrinkable but it wasn't the fruity treat I was looking forward too. One good point is that although very bubbly the small bubbles do make it more refreshing and less likely to make you gaseous. However when you consider it is a diet drink that costs the same as a chocolate bar what can you expect? I think next time I want pink lemonade I will blow the diet and budget and go for a more expensive, full fat version.
