“ Manufacturer: Tesco / Type: Soft Drink „
When it comes to soft drinks, my drink of choice is cherryade, recently when passing Tesco's we popped in for some groceries and at the time I bought this. It retails in Tesco for 65p for 2 litre, which I think is about an average price for supermarket own brand cherryade.
This, as you might expect, is dark pink in colour and being sugar free contains only 0.1g per 250ml. To be honest I'm only guessing this is good, as I have nothing to compare it to as this is the only bottle of pop currently in the house. Written on the back is a warning that this could stain your clothes, which is a consideration if you are given it to children or possibly unsteady drunken adults. Although to be honest as this is a dark pink, common sense may have already warned you of the probable consequences of pouring this on a white top.
**The all important taste** (unless you really were hoping to dye your clothes with it :) )
This has a nice cherryade taste, for those of you unfamiliar with cherryade it's like a sweet almost marzipan cherry taste, nothing like the real taste of cherries. I find it just sweet enough, without being too sweet, I should probably point out I'm not generally a person who likes sweet things. The drink contains a nice amount of fizz, enough to taste it, but not so much that it's annoying and the bubbles go up your nose. The pop also stays fizzy for a few days once opened, in case you are like me and only have a glass or two at a time. This tastes nice on it's own, or as a mixer with vodka or white rum, and has a nice light refreshing taste.
**Would I buy it again?**
Yes, this is a pleasant refreshing drink. It's nothing special as cherryade goes, indeed they all taste pretty much the same to me, but it's a nice drink and I would buy it again if I was in Tesco and wanted some pop.
I recently picked this up at tesco on an offer, they were offering 4 of there fizzy drinks for £2. I thought it was a good price and picked up too bottles of this. I used to love cherryade as a child and hadnt had it in years. I wasn't expecting much from this as it was sugar free and rather cheap. I was shocked to find that I actually really love it and it tasted great, i will now go into a little more detail on the drink.
As I said before it cost me £2 for 4 bottle of this. I believe they usually cost 59p for a huge 2 litre bottle. This is rather cheap when you consider a bottle of coca-cola costs almost double this for half the size. It great value and perfect for parties or just to have in your fridge. It is a real Student budget drink. The bottle Is tall and the liquid is a very red which instantly makes you think of cherry. The bottle also states that a 250ml serving only contains 2 calories which is excellent considering it is a fizzy pop drink, there is also only a trace of salt and sugar. There is no fat and also no saturates. I know they are using other ingredients which aren't great for you, but at least this is healthier than your average fizzy pop drink.
This tastes so much of cherry! The flavour is very strong and it doesn't taste sugar free. It is very fizzy and if your drink it straight out the bottle your are going to become rather gassy. I love the taste and with a couple ice cubes it is nice. It is a very refreshing drink and I could see it becoming a good summer drink for me, I have also been naughty and tried this with a dash if Bacardi and vodka and it makes for quite a good cocktail mixer. The drink has sweetners In it instead of sugar but I don't think this detracts from the taste, if you we're given a glass of this I would never be able to tell it is sugar free. It's very sweet and fruity and exactly what you want from a glass of cherryade, it takes me back to the days of being a kid, and isn't too bad for my body and teeth!
I would recommend that you give this a try, it is good value and lasts a while. I have a glass very occasionally, when I put the lid back on the fizz still remains for some time. It is a cheap drink and a good alternative to coke and other usual fizzy drinks. The value is impressive considering that you get a full 2 litre. Give this a try and I know you will like it. Great for kids and for adults! It's a treat. This gets a good 4 stars from me. It's not the best cherryade I have ever had. But it's up there!
I bought this juice as I fancied a change from my usual (pepsi) it was much cheaper at just 57p it was less than half the price of pepsi, always a bonus. When I first tasted it, it came as a refreshing change and was good served with ice, this juice has plenty of fizz and the colour is lovely but it has a slightly acidic taste and after checking the label I found it to contain no cherries! Only "extracts of carrot and blackcurrent" a 'cherryade' without any cherry!? Get this sorted tesco!
For some strange reason last week I decided to buy cherryade in the supermarket. I absolutely adore cherries, especially the yellow Rainier cherries, and so when we were in Tesco's last week I popped a bottle of cherryade into the trolley. My husband did comment at the time that it was a strange choice, and that it would probably be horrible, I'm a bit of a stubborn person and so this just made me insist that I would love it and so it stayed in the trolley!
I bought Tesco's own brand sugar free cherryade, it comes in a 2 litre bottle, and currently costs 57 pence per bottle. I do normally buy the diet versions of soft drinks, and so this was no exception for the cherryade. The bottle states that it contains just 4 kcal per 100ml.
Cherryade is basically a fizzy soft drink made from cherry juice. I guess that cherryade should really be red, but this was more of a neon flourescent bright pink colour.
So most importantly how does it taste? - one word 'awful'!
My husband was right yet again, although I haven't admitted this to him yet as I've told him that I actually liked it! I thought that this tasted very sweet and sickly and synthetic. It certainly didn't taste of cherries! It also left quite a strong chemically aftertaste which I couldn't get rid of for absolutely ages. It's difficult to describe the taste of this as it didn't taste of anything in particular, it was just sweet and sickly.
On the plus side though the cherryade was really fizzy, and the bottle didn't lose any of its fizz either, even after being kept in the fridge for a couple of days. I did find that it was slightly more tolerable when chilled and poured over lots of ice, it was pretty nasty at room temperature, but slightly better chilled. I didn't actually finish the whole bottle, I ended up pouring half of down the sink, when my husband wasn't looking of course!
I won't be buying this again, and maybe next time I might actually listen to my husband in the supermarket when he says that I won't like something (well actually I probably won't as I'm far too stubborn to do that!).
I am a huge fan of fizzy drinks of all descriptions. One of the better ones I have been trying of late is Cherryade from Tesco. It's their own brand and pretty good stuff, I have to say. I like to keep a good stock of this in our house. It's a good rice at only 56p for a large sized bottle - two litres, to be exact. I enjoy a nice long drink of this after I get in from work - even before I have a cuppa. It is thirst quenching, incredibly fizzy and makes my tongue go bright red! The little lad loves it too, though my other half isn't so keen and says it is sickly. I don't this is the case though, and I actually really do enjoy it.
The overriding taste of this fizzy drink is cherries - obviously. The cherry taste is NOT artificial in my honest opinion, I actually find it a very natural taste and very enjoyable. A lot of these fizzy drinks can quench your thirst initially but then soon after I can feel incredibly thirsty again. I actually don't find this is the case with this drink. It quenches my thirst good and proper.
This drink is best served very cold and straight from the fridge. This isn't always easy though as the bottle is so large we have to lay it on it's side in order for it to fit in. It retains its fizziness for a long time after the bottle has been opened - usually about three to four days. Though by this time it is mainly all drunk.
As this drink is sugar free it contains nil calories, which is fine by me as I am still watching my calorie intake. The other half is not so keen on the little lad drinking it too often though as it obviously contains artificial sweeteners.
Overall, it's a good tasty thirst quenching drink and nice and cheap and recommended highly.
I always have drinks stocked because I have lots of grandchildren who are always wanting a drink. Now the warmer weather is here, I am buying more than usual because they are wanting more colder drinks. This one is a favourite in our household.
The drink is sugar free and only costs 52p for a 2 litre bottle from Tesco. The price is cheap but it is good value for money with a nice taste. It is a nice red colour since it is cherryade. Some colours of the flavour are not a refreshing look inside the bottle but this one is really nice.
The taste of the cherry is quite strong, it is not a bitter taste, just a nice smooth taste. It is quite fizzy and with this drink it does hold the fizz for some time after pouring. Cherryade is a favourite with my grandchildren because they love cherries. This drink is suitable for them for a drink straight from the fridge. I find that the drink is still quite fizzy again once the drink has had the top replaced and opened again maybe the next day or even later in the day in a few hours or so, some brands are quite flat and don't hold the fizz at all.
The drink is housed in a clear plastic bottle, the drink is a bright red colour as would be expected for a Cherry flavour. When the top is removed, this drink has a strong smell of the cherries. Some drinks don't always smell of the flavour they are supposed to smell of but this one does.
When poured into a glass, it fizzes well. It holds the fizz in the glass for quite some time and just for a little less time than one of the branded drinks. The taste of the drink is nice, I can taste the cherries and it has a very fruity taste. One that I did expect but not quite as strong because this drink is really cheap to buy.
It cost only 54p for a 2 litre bottle, for this price the taste of the cherries is good. It is a sugar free drink and doesn't contain many calories. The amount of calorie content for 250ml is only 2 calories. It contains just 0.1g of sugar per 250ml too. So if you drink a lot of fizzy drinks and are wanting a low calorie one, this one would be a good one to buy.
It is a refreshing drink straight from the fridge and I prefer to drink this one cold and not room temperature. Drinking it cold is just a better taste for my liking, this one suits my family well. Some of my grandchildren drink it at room temperature because they younger and the cold isn't always how they like to drink their fizzy drinks because they only have a small cup of a drink.
My grandchildren love this drink. It is one of their favourites. They don't drink fizzy drinks continually but when they come to visit me, they like their treats. This is a good value drink. It has a good taste and not one that has a nasty taste. It is nice and cheap, good quality and worth it.
A good tasting drink and one that myself and my family enjoy drinking.
I rate it 5 stars.
I have seen the cherryade before while hopping in Tesco with my mum and never really thought about buying it. Up until recently I have been drinking Coke Zero and fancied a change so I thought I would try this bright red drink as it is sin free on my slimming world plan which is great. After not having it since I was a young child I was looking forward to having some but served chilled because that's it at it's best. So at a cheap price I couldn't resist.
Once I got home I thought I would try the drink it was it made a loud fizzing noise and at this moment I thought all the fizz would be lost but I couldn't be more wrong it was extremely fizzy and the taste of cherry was a much stronger taste than any other cherryade drink I have tried before. This may be because they have all contained a lot more sugar than this. To keep the drink fresh after opening I keep it in the fridge so that everytime I have some it always gives me a refreshing taste. After being opened a few more times the same amount of fizz was still there and it tastes as great as the first time I tried it.
For a 2 litre bottle of Tesco Cherryade it cost 52p, which I thought is a great price for a drink with a great taste and sugar free! This price for a 2 litre fizzy drink is excellent compared to other competitors on the market considering they can be up to as much as £2.50. With the price being so low you can stock up and have more bottles for the same amount you'd pay for a top brand name.
As I have already mentioned the drink comes in a 2 litre plastic bottle with a bright red label which contains all the ingredients and nutritional information.
As the liquid is a vibrant red colour this really appeals to the buyer as it is just bursting with cherry flavours.
On the label there is also a a picture of bubbles to make the product attract to the younger customer to emphasise the fizzyness of the drink.
~~Ingredients and Nutritional Information ~~
Carbonated Water, Citric Acid, Fruit And Vegetable Concentrates (Carrot, Blackcurrant), Acidity Regulator (Sodium Citrate), Sweeteners (Aspartame, Acesulfame K), Preservative (Potassium Sorbate), Flavourings, Stabiliser (Carboxymethylcellulose).
Per 250ml this cherryade contains
2 calories (<1%)
0.1g sugar (<1%)
0g of fat (0%)
0g of saturates (0%)
salt traces again (<1%)
For me I don't normally understand the nutritional information as it isn't displayed in a simple form but on the bottle it is well labelled and from what I can see there is hardly any sugar and only 2 calories from a normal side cup.
~~What I like about the drink~~
I love the strong cherry taste and the refreshing feel that it gives me after I have had some. I also love knowing that what I am drinking is good for me even if it could be dying my insides bright red at least they will look nice! The drink is also good because even though there is next to no sugar in it, it still tastes amazing even better that a lot more expensive brands.
~~What's not so good~~
The drink may stain as it is a strong colour so be careful!
~~Other Tesco Fizzy Drinks~~
Tesco do many other cheap fizzy drinks such as lemonade,orangeade,limeade,dandelion and burdock, cola. These are all at the same price or cheaper.
A brilliant refreshing drink for only 52p! Which is sin free on slimming world!
I picked up a bottle of this from Tesco for a mere 44p, that was for the two litre bottle too. I thought that was excellent value myself!
The drink is the standard cherry colour which is a light red shade. It also has a shade of pink in the light. The drink comes in a transparent bottle which is handy as you can see how much of the drink you have left. The drink pours well, although it is VERY fizzy so stand back when opening it! The drink is a great summer drink as it is really light and refreshing. I would describe the taste as quite sweet and fruity - it tastes just like premium cherryade - you wouldn't be able to taste the difference.
The drink tastes as it's best when it's been chilled. Chilling the drink first makes the drink much more refreshing. You can serve the drink as it is or you can add a topping of REAL cherries for a juicy kick. The drink can be drunk with or without food but I tend to drink it without as it can leave me feeling a little bloated. The drink leaves a pleasant cherry flavoured aftertaste in your mouth after drinking and I find that the drink quenches my thirst better than most other drinks.
The drink is very sweet but it's not too high in calories either, so it can be drunk without you having to feel guilty! Yes, it's a great summer drink but it's also great drunk all year round. I drink it every so often as I like a change and I don't really stick to one preferred drink all the time. It's suitable for people on a gluten free diet too.
One last thing - The drink temporarily turns your tongue red, so be aware of that!
Cherryade isn't the Juice that I normally drink. It's normally Diet Coke, and other Juice such as Lemonade or Orangeade, but I do reach for the odd Limeade and Cherryade. I bought this the other week and have bought it before and also have tried the Asda version.
This comes in a 2 litre bottle and I think the price of this is around 48p which is an average price for a Supermarket brand of Fizzy Juice. The bottle looks alright. Just a clear plastic bottle and you can see the light red coloured Juice through the bottle. The label is red as well so it all looks quite bright.
On the label it states the nutritional information per 250ml of this Juice and this only has 2 calories per 250ml so good if you are trying to keep your calories down.
So how does this taste? It is a nice enough Juice. The Juice tastes sweet enough and although not overly sweet it is fine. There is a good amount of Fizz in this Juice when you first open this bottle and although it takes me a few days to get through a bottle there is still fizz when I am nearly finished the bottle, but a good bit of the Fizz has disappeared after a couple of days. It is still tasty enough and drinkable. The Cherry taste through this is strong enough and you get the nice tang of Cherries which doesn't taste all that fake.
I will keep buying this Juice for a change from my normal Juice that I drink. I don't think I would drink this kind of drink all the time, but that's just because Fruit flavoured Fizzy drinks aren't my favourite Juice, but still a nice flavoured Juice.
Cherryade is the one drink that I love, but am rarely allowed. The parents have outlawed it on the grounds that it sends me hyper (despite being sugarfree) and the boyfriend despises the taste and smell of it. So, when I get back to university, it's naturally the first thing I purchase!
Due to my University town being small and, well, Northern Welsh, the only supermarket in a reasonable distance is Morrisons. Therefore this review will be Morrisons Cherryade based, though to be honest I don't think there are many things you can do differently when making it - and it probably all comes from the same place anyway.
A bottle of cherryade in Morrisons will set you back the princely sum of 54p for 2 litres. There's no added sugar, and from reading the ingredients, no added colourings or E numbers (though how they make it bright pink naturally is beyond me). The ingredients are simple - a bit of carbonated water, some citric acid, some fruit/veg extract and some sweeteners/acidity regulators/preservatives. As such, for glorified sparkling water, there are little to no calories in it. Looking at the ingredients, there are also no actual cherries in it. Shock horror for a value drink!
The taste of this drink is quite a pleasant one, and whilst it may not contain any cherries, it certainly tastes like it does. The bright pink colour stains EVERYWHERE, including, I imagine, your small intestine. It smells (to me) beautiful, like a summers day, whilst I can believe that to others it smells only of chemicals. Cherryade is not to everyone's taste! One other thing to mention is that it seems to go flat quite quickly; much like Fanta does. Though I prefer it flat rather than so bubbly it's hurting my nose.
As I said earlier, drinks like this have an effect greater than alcohol on me. Give me a glass of this and I'm bouncing around everywhere, essays are done in minutes and I'm the happiest person on the planet. And no horrible sugar low either! The effects of cherryade are massively underrated to be honest.
Being a student again means that I rarely buy expensive or branded food products anymore. I usually stick with squash but during those intensive assignment periods, a quick break to get a glass of squash could run the risk of running into someone else in the house and being distracted for the rest of the afternoon! Much more safe to surround with ready to eat and drink products and not leave the room until the assignment is done (except for toilet breaks, obviously!).
Cherryade is a favourite of mine from when I was a child and my mum used to buy it. I can't remember which brand she bought but this 45p bottle from Tesco tastes exactly like I remember. The sugarfree element is the big seller for me, as being stationary at a desk does enough expanding to my waist line without me adding to it. I suppose it may not be sweet enough for some tastes but I drink Diet Coke because normal Coke is too sweet so bear that in mind when I say it's great tasting!
The colour is a little garish and I suppose no cherryaid actually tastes like cherries! But as far as Cherryade goes this is just as good as any other product you will buy. The taste doesn't seem to have been compromised by the lack of sugar and it's lovely and fizzy and great straight from the fridge.
I also drink it with vodka and ice or sometimes with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and some maraschino cherries to make it into a cherry float.
There is not really a lot to complain about. A good standard product from Tesco that won't break the bank or expand your waistline!
I really love drinking fizzy drinks and have tasted many different kinds of pop drinks, and this cherryade is just one of many which I really like drinking. I have grown up drinking the sugar free cherryade and have drunk it every since I was a young child, as it was something our household could not live without.
Now that I am in my 20s i still continue to enjoy drinking it and on a regular basis, and the fact that it is sugar free is a real bonus and I don't have to worry so much unlike other sugary drinks which can be bad for your teeth etc.
A (2L) bottle cost about 45p from Tesco's supermarket. It's come in a big standard size plastic bottle with a bright red top lid. The label on the bottle is also red in colour with the letters cherryade printed in big white letters.
The cherryade has a nice bright red colour and looks very appealing to the viewing eye. For the price I think it tastes very nice, tasting of a nice sweet cherry flavour. There is not that much difference from the more expensive cherryades. So for the price this is well worth every penny.
Nutrional Informational per 100ml:
The cherryade stays fizzy for quite sometime when kept in the fridge. I have nothing bad to say about this drink as it's just such a lovely tasting, refreshing and thirst quenching drink. I would highly recommend you try it and you will be saving a few pennies at the same time.
Its no secret in our house that I am a pop-a-holic. I love fizzy drink , really dont enjoy squash or juice at all which makes me pretty unhealthy I guess! The drink of choice for me has always been the tooth rotting elixar coke, up until recently that is ( Ive just had some major dental work done ) I have now given up on the full sugar and only drink sugar free pops.
I have been experimenting a fair bit and would say that of the cola sugar free variety Pepsi Max gets my vote and in the non cola pop section Tescos cherryade is pretty damn hard to beat. The sweetners that are used in this drink are very well mixed with the flavours and dont leave you with that artifical taste synonymous with saccarine. I dont enjoy many flavours of pop other than coke my two favs are cherry and cream soda ( which tesco also do and is beautiful! ). One way to use these which is slightly out of he norm is as ice cubes , load up your ice cube tray with cherryade or cream soda and pop a couple of cubes when they are done in your drink..lovely!
Tesco sugar free cherryade ticks all the boxes for me. Its cheap at just over 40p for two liters , has a refleshing fruity taste and will keep my teeth looking good not to mention my waist line!
I brought a bottle of this Sugar Free Cherryade from Tesco because I fancied some pop but wanted a fruity one instead of Coke or cordial pop. I looked at a few different ones but got this flavour because I haven't had cherryade in ages and a 2 litre bottle was only 46p.
It's bright red like you'd expect cherryade to be and when you open the bottle it fizzes up good, I thought it was going to be too fizzy because a lot of Tesco own brand pops are waaaaaay too bubbly but I think this one is perfect. It doesn't fizz over the top of the glass but what's left in the bottle keeps its fizz good for a couple of days after you've opened it.
The taste is lovely and fruity with a nice sweet cherry flavour. It's sugar free so the sweetness is obviously sweeteners but they've mixed them proper nice to get the pop tasting like it's got sugar in it. I love the light cherry taste in the pop because it's not madly overpowering but is loads more refreshing than other pop I've tried from Tesco.
I used the rest of the bottle as a mixer for my vodka the other night and it was perfect, I don't buy cherryade that often but will deffo buy this one more often now I know it can be drunk on it's own OR as a mixer. The sweet fruity taste went proper nice with the harsher taste of the vodka and toned it down a bit but without covering all the vodka flavour up.
There are other flavours in this Tesco range of pop and all the ones I've tried have been quite nice, this is the best of the lot though and I reckon it's deffo one of the best cherryade's I've had in ages. For the price I don't think you can moan much and I love that it's only got 2 calories in 250ml because that means I can drink as much of it as I like without worrying that it's going to rot my teeth or make me put on weight!
Recommended... delish sugar free fruity pop!!!
I love pop and I adore cherry flavoured anything so when one night in Tesco with my mate I decided to treat myself to a bottle of this!
2L clear plastic bottle with a red plastic screw on/off cap to the top of it. Around the middle of the bottle there is a reddish and pink label on there and I'm told it is Tesco 'Sugar Free' Cherryade and that it contains no artificial flavours or colours and there is an at a glance nutritional chart on there. Other information given on the bottle includes ingredients and allergy advice, a full nutritional rundown chart is given as is storage advice and contact details for Tesco are given. All in all it's a nice enough informative bottle!
The Drink Itself:
Transparent and red in colour it's nicely sparkling opposed to being overly fizzy or anything. As soon as you open the bottle you get a lovely and distinctive smell of sweet cherries but it really is a natural smell!
I really like this refreshing cherryade. Not too sweet but naturally so, not only does it smell of cherries it tastes of them too and although cherryade sounds like a kiddies drink this really isn't and for me it's a grown up version of a classic flavour!
Once poured it doesn't go flat immediately, can be mixed with ice or alcohol and it has a nice tangy sharpness to it and it is a refreshing little number! Once stored I found that it stayed fresh in the fridge without losing it's life for about 4 days too which I think is a good amount of time when it comes to carbonated drinks! Recommended from me and very worth it's small price tag!
Nutritional Information Per 250ml:
