      An interesting twist on apple juice

      Normally the only reason I have fruit juice in the house is to use as a mixer for cocktails and alcoholic beverages! My boyfriend spotted this apple and mint juice in our local Tesco and we were intrigued by the unusual combination of ingredients. We bought a couple of bottles to try, a 250ml costs 49p. It's also available in a 2 litre carton for £1.59 This is a very reasonably priced product and you get a good amount for your money.

      The juice comes in a glass bottle and has an odd little pull-ring to allow you to remove the lid. This is actually pretty handy for if you're out and about so you don't need to try and locate a bottle opener before you can have your drink. The bottle can be recycled after use.

      Product description: "Apple-mint drink. Made with concentrated juice. Pasteurized. Non-carbonated. No preservatives added. Product of Poland."

      The juice itself is a still drink and has a pale yellow colour to it like you would usually expect from an ordinary apple juice. There are no bits and it's a smooth fruit juice made from concentrate. It has a pleasant smell and I was curious to see what the special ingredient of mint would do for the flavour.

      The apple flavour is mostly at the forefront but you can definitely recognise the mint and this comes through quite strongly. It is an unusual taste that took me a little while to get accustomed to, maybe because it is different to what I am normally used to. The juice was a lot less sweet than most apple juice drinks and it had a very natural taste to it. I think the apple and mint juice is a very refreshing flavour and it is the perfect sort of drink that I would want to take with me on a summer picnic.

      This is definitely a good value juice drink and I would recommend it. The taste is unique and very nice indeed, I think it's a good alternative to plain apple juice.

        Just have water

        Tymbark apple-mint drink.

        I bought this from my local Tesco Express, where it was located on the shelf (as opposed to being in the refrigerator), as this is a long-life drink. The product is imported from Poland, and, as such, is located with other Polish products which are all kept grouped together, rather than being kept with the other drinks.

        It cost around 85 pence or thereabouts on the day I bought it. It is also available in long-life cartons which carry a much bigger quantity. The nutritional information tells me that it contains 39 calories per 100ml, not bad.

        Tymbark apple-mint drink comes in a glass bottle with lovely smooth rounded edges. The quantity is 250ml, and it has an old fashioned ring-pull lid, with a little ring that you pull up and out, then the lid pops off with a satisfying sigh. It looks like the sort of drink that you would pop in your picnic basket before heading out for a day on the village green, preferably in 1953 - lovely, old-style packaging.

        Inside the lid it says simply 'Patience' . I have no idea why - however, it made me smile.

        The drink is pale in colour, resembling ordinary apple juice. So far, so good!

        Unfortunately, it tastes of absolutely nothing much really. Just sugary water - I cannot detect any apple flavour whatsoever. The mint flavour is lost on me too, I'm afraid. Maybe if anything I would say a hint of mint, but if I had not read the label, I wouldn't be able to put my finger on any flavour at all.

        The blurb on the label claims that Tymbark contain 25% apple juice from concentrate, making it the second largest ingredient after water, but my tastebuds are just not getting that at all. It's a real shame too, because I really liked the look of this drink.

        Verdict: It will quench your thirst as well as any other drink, it's not unpleasant, but for a very similar flavour but without the added calories and sugar, I would recommend you get yourself a bottle of water.
