I have tried many of the tesco sugar free fizzy drinks over the years and they all seem to be very different, some are great and some our poor. This sugarfree limeade ranks in the middle. I first noticed that tesco sold there own limeade when they were doing an offer on fizzy drinks. I decided to pick it up and try it as I had never actually tasted limeade before. I am a huge fan of anything citrus and I have been hooked on Lime cordial for years. This was cheap and I thought it was well worth a try. I will now go into a little more detail and explain why I am not totally happy with this particular drink.
A bottle usually costs around 65p but I got an offer where you could buy 4 bottles for £2. This is very reasonable and a fair bit cheaper than the other fizzy drinks on the shelf. I was very happy to part with the money because I am a fan of fizzy drinks but I do like to have them sugar free as I believe it is much better for you.
The bottle contains 2 litres of limeade which is a fair bit for the money. The label is green with the words "sugar free limeade" written across it. The bottle also tells you that it only contains 3 calories per 250ml which I believe is excellent. Compared to other fizzy drinks this is very good. The bottle is simple and also has a green lid. The bottle is quite big and I sruggled to fit it in the fridge. It has the typcial tesco packaging too.
What's it like?:
This drink is very fizzy! the fizz lasted for a good week and that it a good thing. There is nothing worse than a flat fizzy drink! The taste is initially of lime but then you lose the taste in the fizz. Its not very citrus and is more of a diluted flavour. I was disappointed because I was looking forward to the strong lime flavour you would get from cordial or squash. I can only have a small glass of this as it is extremely gassy and makes me burp too much. You can also taste that it is sugar free as it isnt very sweet. I found the flavour to be a let down and was disapointed. The drink when cold is though very refreshing and on a hot summers day I think I could drink a lot of it. I tried adding a ddash of lime cordial to it and it tasted much better. overall this is just far to weak for my likeing. Its great for kids though as it wont overdose them on sugar and I am sure they wouldnt mind the taste!
I am going to award this limeade a 3 star review. I think it is pretty good but I would prefer there to be much more flavour than there actually is. It is healthier for you than certain brands of coke. I think its worth a try though, you may really like it! Thanks for reading my review on tesco sugar-free Limeade! I hope it helped you out. Try it out, it may be good for you.

I bought this drink in a two litre bottle for just under 60p.
The drink is a pale lime green colour. It smells quite citrusy and uplifting and it's very tangy and refreshing. The drink is quite fizzy and because of this I don't drink it that often. Sometimes I will drink it with a straw as it's too fizzy for my liking when I first open it. The amount of fizz will drop once the drink has been opened and I find the drink easier to consume once it has dropped. However some people might like a lot of fizz and if you do like a lot of fizz then this is the drink for you!
The drink is tasty and refreshing. The drink leaves a pleasant aftertaste in your mouth after drinking and the drink really helps to cool me down after I have been exercising. The drink goes well with food as it helps to wash the food down, however I will let the drink stand for a while first due to the high amount of fizz in the drink. For an extra kick you can add a few fresh slices of lime to the drink. You can also add some ice to it aswell. The drink tastes even more refreshing then!
I wouldn't say that the taste is a genuine lime flavour as it does taste a little artificial. It has a synthetic lime taste to it that doesn't taste of natural limes. However the taste is far from unpleasant and I will carry on drinking it due to the fact that it is so refreshing.
A tasty limeade from Tesco.
I have seen the limeade drink when I previously bought the cherryade product before while shopping 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 after I tried the cherryade I thought I would try this vibrant green drink as it is sin free on my slimming world plan which is great as there is no added sugar. I had never tried limeade before so at a cheap price I couldn't really say no. After the thirsty work of shopping once I got home I was ready to try the green drink just like the cherryade it made a loud fizzing noise that lasted about 5 seconds bit it was still extremely gassy. I just remember the taste being sour and horrible. However I did keep the drink in the fridge so that other family members could help themselves, they were more than welcome to.
For a 2 litre bottle of Tesco Limeade it cost 52p, which I thought is a great price for a drink with a bright colour and sugar free but that's probably why it tasted horrible! 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 green label which contains all the ingredients and nutritional information.
As the liquid is almost a florescent green colour this really appeals to the buyer as it is just bursting with flavours. Which I later found to be flavours of sourness.
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.
Per 250ml this limeade contains
0g of fat
0g of saturates
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 how the drink is so cheap and that you can buy it from any Tesco store. The drink looks very appealing being bright green and really catches the consumers eye. It is great knowing that the drink is sugar free and isn't harming your teeth when you drink it.
What's not so good
The taste is disgusting and really isn't one for me it is sour and words can't describe the after taste that it left in my mouth. In my opinion the taste of the drink is really of a poor quality but this might be to your taste.
Other Tesco Fizzy Drinks
Tesco do many other cheap fizzy drinks such as lemonade,orangeade,cherryade,dandelion and burdock, cola. These are all at the same price or cheaper.
A drink that really has to be given a miss the drink just doesn't match up to the lovely colour of it but lives up to the cheap price.
Now its summer (supposedly) I have switched from drinking my usual vodka and diet coke to vodka lime and lemonade as I always feel that this is lighter and much more refreshing on a summers day or evening. Seeing as how buying the lime cordial and the lemonade separately is added cost (although in general a bottle of lime cordial will last a good deal of time) I decided to give this limeade from Tesco a try.
At 56p for a 2 litre bottle I thought it seemed like very good value for money as I tend to get around 4 or 5 large glasses of the drink out of a bottle of this size. The fact that it is a sugar free drink also appealed to me as I tend to opt for the lesser calorie content of drink especially if I am going to mix it with vodka and add those extra calories.
The design of the bottle is nothing special and really nothing different from any other 2 litre plastic bottle of drink. The label that it uses is fairly cheap looking but again for 56p a bottle its not something that I find a problem. The colour of the liquid is visible through the clear plastic of the bottle and the bright green colourings aren't really very appealing but having said this green is the colour you would expect with a lime drink such as this.
On first opening of the screw capped bottle the drink inside was very fizzy and full of thousands of little air bubbles which was a good thing and again something which I would have expected however I must say that these bubbles didn't last for long and the next day the drink tastes a little less fresh and less lively and I think to keep the fresh fizziness the whole bottle really need to be drunk on the same day as opening. It didn't last me more than two days but I don't think that on day three there would have been any bubbles left.
The taste of the drink was of course very lime tasting but a very false lime that was quite sharp and no wholly enjoyable. Having been drinking the classic Roses lime cordial and lemonade I have been used to getting a light and fruity citrus taste but with this I had a deeper and mustier taste of false limes that really wasn't up to scratch. I found the lime flavour too strong which made the fact that the lime flavour wasn't nice even worse.
I did finish the bottle as I didn't want it to go to waste but I can't say that I found the experience very enjoyable and I definitely won't be buying another bottle of this fizzy pop any time soon. Not only was the flavour very manufactured in taste but it didn't keep the fizz well and overall spoilt the taste of my vodka!
I think a score of 1 out of 5 stars is being rather generous but that's the lowest I can give it! I wouldn't recommend it! Urgh!
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you
many thanks for taking the time to read.
My grandkids do not get a lot of fizzy drinks when they come to stay at ours and we try very hard to make sure any they do get are of the sugar free variety but with kids this isn't always easy.
Their favourite fizzy drink is limeade and the limeade they have learned to love is the one from Barr's and there isn't a sugar free version of it so when I saw Tesco`s sugar free limeade I had to give it a go.
Three days after buying it the kids were round to stay and I couldn't wait to announce that granddad had some limeade for them if they were good and so after a time out playing, we headed in for lunch and a glass of limeade.
I enjoy limeade too so I joined the kids with a glass and we all sat down with sausage rolls cakes and limeade, after one sip of it the youngest grandchild asked me what was wrong with her juice and I knew then this limeade was not going to be a big hit.
I told her there was nothing wrong with it just that it had less sugar in it so it was better for her teeth, then I took my first sip and I was totally in agreement with her, it did taste like it had something wrong with it.
The lack of sugar means a whole lot of saccharin or other sweeteners and this tastes way sweeter than the Barr's full sugar version and it has a bitter after tastes too, my eldest grandchild claimed to actually like it but didn't finish it and he has never been known to leave any juice in his glass.
This limeade looks like a typical limeade and it keeps its fizz well enough for a cheap juice but the sweetness of it and the stickiness of it means it is not terribly nice or refreshing and certainly not one I will ever buy again.
It is low calorie and it is better for your teeth and it is cheaper than Barr's with a 750ml of Barr's limeade costing around 70p and 2 litres of this costing just 99p, so for that I will give it two stars but the aftertaste and sugary sweetness rendered this pretty much undrinkable in my honest opinion.
It's not very often I drink limeade because I don't go much for this kind of flavour, I'm usually more of a Coke kinda girl but in Tesco the other day I decided to get something different for a change. You can't miss it on the shelf because it's a radioactive green colour, it doesn't look like it's going to be very good for you but it hasn't got any sugar in it so it's not bad for your weight or teeth!
It's got a funny taste, I don't mean that in a bad way either because it's dead unusual and proper nice. It's tangy and even though there's no sugar in it it's lovely and sweet, I don't think it tastes much like fresh limes but the flavour is more like the lime cordial you have in lager. It's a fizzy version of that but sweeter and deffo not as harsh on your throat as you're drinking.
I think this is a proper refreshing drink, it's mega fizzy when you first open the bottle but goes flat quite quick so you're best to drink it asap after you open it. And I'd leave the bottle for a few seconds after you first open it because it will just bubble up in the glass and over flow if you try and pour it straight away! It's not them sort of bubbles that get up your nose when you start drinking the pop but I'm not mad keen on mega fizzy drinks so I left this one for a bit because the bubbles DID look a bit fierce! lol
You can get other flavours in this Tesco No Added Sugar range like cherryade, lemonade and even things like blackcurrant and other stuff like that that I don't fancy as a fizzy pop flavour. This lime one is yummy though, it tastes wicked and is also refreshing now the weather is starting to get warmer.
I tend not to buy fizzy drinks unless it is a special occasion and with it being christmas and new year I thought I'd get some! I tend to buy supermarkets own make as, all though there is a difference in taste it is nothing major, however a lot cheaper.
What is it?
It is sugar free fizzy drink. Its flavour is lime so therefore has a citrussy taste to it. It comes in a 2L bottle.
How much did it cost?
As I bought it at christmas I think that they had offers on and I think it cost around 73p, I don't think it is much more normally and is most likely to cost less than a £1, which I think is great for 2L of pop!
Where can you buy it?
It is purchasable in Tescos.
What is the packaging like?
Like most bottles of pop it has the clear, long bottle with a sticker / label stuck the whole way round the bottle with a vibrant green background and white writing reading 'Sugar free Limeade'. It has a green screw top lid and all the nutritional values.
What first made me buy this bottle, despite the offer and never really liking citrussy pop as I never thought it worked was the green liquid which was bright and appetising, unlike many of them that look faded.
It also looked fizzy as most of them look flat or can go flat quick and once it is flat it is just like lime squash which I have never really liked.
Upon opening the bottle for the first time I could hear that schhhhhh of fizz which pleased me and upon clearing into a clear glass you could see that the colour of the drink was indeed very vibrant.
Next was the taste test! Upon first tasting a sip I couldn't really taste any sweetness, all I could really taste was this over sweet liquid entering my mouth that I had to swallow down quick! However upon taking a mouthful I could taste the lime and the citrus in the drink and combined with the fizz it actually tasted really nice, which surprised me as I have found a citrus fizzy pop that I actually like.
I propbably wouldn't drink more than a glass or two a day though as it is soo sweet and would most likely get sickly after a while. I also don't find it a good thirst quencher as it is sweet it tends to makes you more thirsty, like sweet pop corn in that affect which makes you very thirsty and lines the roof of your mouth.
I would reccomend and it would be great for fun parties, especially halloween ones, however I would have a bucket of water by your side too!
However as far as flavour goes it is a very tasty drink!

In Tesco last week I fancied a bottle of pop but found the other flavours somewhat uninspired, even my usual favourites of Dandelion & Burdock or Tango just didn't interest me. I was about to walk away when I spotted a lurid green bottle of Tesco own brand Limeade, even better it was sugar free so I could fit it into my diet without worrying about the calories.
I've drunk limeade in the past but honestly it was so long ago that I cannot really remember what it tastes like, although I love the flavour of lime so picked up a bottle and put it in my trolley.
I was parched when I got home so decided to have a glass straight away. The bottle opened with a refreshing fizz and I was pleasantly surprised to see plenty of bubbles fizzing throughout the green liquid in the bottle.
Taking a sip I was impressed with the pungent lime flavour, admittedly it does taste a bit of chemicals but overall it's a very pleasant tasting drink indeed. It has a lovely sweet flavour that surprised me considering it's a sugar free drink, presumably that's the sweetners Tesco have used but I must say they have been blended very nicely in this drink and there is no bitterness whatsoever.
Once the bottle has been opened a couple of times the pop will start going a little flat but this isn't really a problem specific to this drink as it happens with most fizzy drinks, especially the supermarket own brand varieties.
I do find Tesco's Limeade doesn't really quench by thirst very well, which surprised me actually as fizzy citrus flavour drinks usually hit the spot well when it comes to their refreshing properties. However, it's a very tasty drink that is a real change from the fizzy flavours I usually buy and for that reason I shall certainly buy it again when the fancy takes me.
A 250ml glass of Tesco Sugar Free Limeade contains just 3 calories and absolutely no fat or sugar at all so a couple of glasses will be fine whether you're dieting or not. I did find it a little bloating however so I don't recommend you drink too much of it too quickly!
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 46p each or 3 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 green plastic cap that's very thin and a little fiddly to put back on. The bottle has a green label with the Tesco logo, nutritional information, calorie content, ingredients etc and there are just 3 calories and no sugar what so ever 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. The limeade was quite fizzy without having too many bubbles to get all up my nose when I swallowed and it does have a lovely lime flavouring to it as well as being a vivid green colour, if a little watered down in appearance.
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 and the only downside (for some people) is that this contains aspartame. I don't really let this affect what I eat or drink although I am trying to be more conscious of what goes in to my food & drink now and because of this ingredient I am rating this 3/5.
Me and my boyfriend love nothing more than at the weekend to relax and buy in some junk food and watch a good movie, since the credit crunch has hit us so hard over the last month we have been looking at ways to make our little weekend feasts more affordable, and I think that Tesco Sugar Free Limeade is one of the best discoveries we have made yet.
Tesco Sugar Free Limeade is a lime flavoured fizzy drink that comes in a 2 litre bottle, this drink is bright green in colour though dont let that put you off as it is free from artificial colours and flavours, so you know that it is more natural than it looks.
Tesco Sugar Free Limeade tastes great in my opinion, my boyfriend who is normally fussy about food and drink also likes it (which was actually a shock to me), it doesnt taste too strong of lime and it is nice and sweet, it also isnt too fizzy or too flat in my opinion, though if you leave it for anything over 2 days it will go really flat which ruins the taste of it.
You can buy a bottle of this for around 40p in Tescos at the moment which is a great and affordable price, if you think that a 2 litre bottleof Sprite (though I do admit Sprite does taste better) costs almost £2 in some shops and £1.50 in most, and a 500ml can costs 50p, so 2 litres of Tesco Sugar Free Limeade is cheaper than a tin of Sprite, thats a great alternative and a great way to save money.
Though dont let it get on your clothes, its stains everything and can be a real pain to get out, it also can leave you with those green marks on your lips which can be annoying too.
So in 250ml of Tesco Sugar Free Limeade there is:
So this drink is just like flavoured carbonated water, and wont harm you too much as there is no added sugar, though carbonated drinks can be bad for your health, so its still best that you keep this drink for a little treat.
I have 3 kids who seem to view fizzy drinks as a challenge-who can drink the most which means that im always on the lookout for bargain fizzy drinks(paying £1.45 for a bottle is NOT an option as they drink it all the day i buy it!) Well in Tesco recently i noticed the range of tesco fizzy drinks they have at a fantastic 39p a bottle! The limeade flavour is a fab bright green and sugar free-always a good thing with kids its also only 1 calorie per 100ml(not that im obsessed with calories!) and contains no caffiene or carbs-another plus point! Also the bottle is made from pet plastic so completley recyclable-we can do our bit for the planet!The taste of this drink however is quite-well strange is the best word i can think of(sorry i know thats not very descriptive!) its very sour tasting kind of like sucking a fizzy cola bottle-when it first goes in your mouth all you can do is wince! once you get used to it it does taste ok ithink its just that first taste that is not nice-i would have preferred a sweeter taste to be honest! its a bit artificial tasting but most limeade drinks are so thats not a criticism of this specific drink just limeade in general! Also be really careful if you give it to kids-my little sons yellow top is now yellow and green and it does not wash out completley so be warned! All in all its a good value drink and the kids love it and at 39p a bottle you cant complain!
Tesco sugar free limeade As you all know by now I love a good buy and I have found another one. I drink a lot of sugar free drinks and usually its Safeway?s. Lately I have been doing a lot of my shopping in the new Tesco?s store in Alloa as it is well set out and the staff are really nice and helpful. Enough of thee blethering Margaret get on with it. A couple of weeks ago I was looking at the cans (soft drinks) for Ross and I saw they had Tesco? own make of Limeade sugar free it?s usually 39p but was on a special offer three for £1 so in goes nine bottles ( just as well I liked it eh! ) it fair makes my day when I get a bargain. It?s a normal 2 litre bottle with a flash on the top with 39p all the way round. Sugar free is stamped on it in red so it?s easy to see . It is the most beautiful shade of lime green but be careful if you give it to children as it stains. I got it on a white top (I dribbled manky thing that I am) but it washed out OK. It tastes really nice a strong lime taste it draws you?re cheeks (both sets) together Lol . It is quite sour but I like sour things It?s brilliant if you are cutting down on calories as it only has 1 cal per 100 ml. (3.1/2 fl.oz) For those on the Atkins diet tit?s brilliant as it contains no caffeine and no carbohydrates The bottle is made from PET so is recyclable where facilities exist. It is every bit as good if not better than Safeway?s but Ross thinks Safeway?s is sweeter so he likes theirs best I suppose it?s just what each individual prefers it is really nice if you put some ice in the glass it is brilliant in this hot weather! I give Tesco?s sugar free limeade 10 out of 10 It?s the loveliest green I?ve ever
seen That?s Tesco?s sugar free lime It?s so good I think you should Give it 10 not 9 It?s so sour it draws your cheeks Even the ones that?s in your breeks Your knickers will seem a bigger size But you will really feel alive I hope you enjoyed this and understood my poem Lol margaretxx
