One is ok anymore and they become sickly

Advantages: Good for people who don't like the taste of strong alcohol
Disadvantages: Too sickly sweet
Even though I actually like alcopops blue WKD is one that I am not very fond of. They seem to have been around forever and although I would be unlikely to ever buy myself one in a bar people have on occasion bought me one before.
No one seems to know what flavour the blue one actually is. Some people say it is blueberry and some people say it is bubble gum but to me it just tastes fruity with a slightly sour taste to it. It really does taste artificial and you can tell the fruit flavours are chemically produced.
The reason that I am not very keen on Blue WKD is because the taste to me is just too sweet and sugary and I find them really sickly after only one bottle. Any more than this and I would be sick and not from the fact I had drunk too much alcohol solely from the sickly sweet flavour of the drink.
The alcohol content is only 4.5% so they aren't too strong. I like the fact that they come in bottles as it is much more convenient for busy bars and dance floors in nightclubs. I have noticed lately that a lot of places are now selling these in plastic bottles instead of glass ones. I'm assuming this is to stop them being lobbed at people's heads but the plastic is a bit flimsy.
These are good if you don't like the taste of spirits but still want a drink as the sweetness of them really masks the alcohol in them and to be honest it is easy to see why they are called alcopops as you could easily drink this and not even know you are drinking anything alcoholic.
I will drink the odd Blue WKD but usually only the one as after that it just becomes too sickly and I need to move on to something else. These usually cost around about £2.50 in my local bars so they aren't too expensive and worth the money if you enjoy the taste.
