After the success of Boots Christmas crisps, in Brie & Cranberry flavour, I thought I would give their new seasonal drink a try. It comes in a fairly plain bottle, with a robin on the bottom of the pack, and in appearance is a slightly pink fizzy looking liquid.
I realise that this drink is in the low calorie range, but as someone who regularly drinks Sprite Zero and diet pop I was under the impression that you can have low calorie and lots of flavour.
Sadly this drink was a bit muted for my taste buds. I could pick up on some fruity flavours like grape and plum, and even a hint of spice from some cinnamon, but it all felt like it had been watered down. Even the fizz wasn’t strong enough for my preference, but others may like a lighter amount of bubbles. After the mild taste washed away, all I was left with was a vague sweetness that seemed to linger on the palette. If the flavours were stronger I would have found this a lot more appealing, it wasn’t horrible, it just wasn’t amazing. To be honest I’d rather buy a bottle of Diet Coke in the Boots meal deal, at least I know where I am with that. Bit of a shame really, but if you are in Boots – did I mention how fab their Brie & Cranberry crisps are?
