Fentimans Rose Lemonade (Waitrose)
I have been a big fan of Fentiman’s Victorian Lemonade and Curiosity Cola for a fair few years, so was pleased to see a new flavour in their range. As a fan of their Lemonade and a fan of rose flavouring (for example Turkish Delight) I was expecting to be in for a treat.
As it happens I felt this drink tasted a little mixed up, and I didn’t feel that the lemon and rose flavour complimented one another. The base lemon flavour is of a good quality, and the floral aftertaste is by no means bad, I just found myself craving regular Fentimans Lemonade while sipping this drink. The slightly sweet rose aspect seems to soften the zingy sharp lemon bite that I usually like so much.
I would be interested to know what other people who have tried this particular offering thought.
