The worst thing I have ever drunk

Disadvantages: It was awful
Cherry Vimto - available in most supermarkets and convenience stores
2 Litres - £2.
I am a massive fan of Vimto - both still and sparkling. I prefer the no added sugar versions, however will do the sugary versions if no added sugar has run out. I also love cherries, so you would have thought with cherry Vimto win win right?
This was the most disgusting thing I have ever had the misfortune to taste. Not only is it not available in no added sugar (as far as I am aware) it tastes all icky, and not at all like cherries. The things that they slyly put into the original flavour that make it taste so good make this taste awful.
The product is not suitable for carbohydrate free diets.
The drink does have the distinctive flavour that sets it apart from other products, but with the cherries this is not good. When given to my nieces and nephews who normally go mad for Vimto products it was rebuffed, and went to waste for me a real waste of money...
It's only getting one star as there is no option for less....
Summary: Stick to the original
