Soursop Juice [By SpectreUK]


This still Soursop Juice drink was manufactured by Pokka, in Malaysia. In my ignorance I’ve never heard of Soursop, so I checked on the taste of it before opening the can, as just by the name it sounded sour! My usual information source (Wikipedia) told me that Soursop tasted like; “strawberry, pineapple, with sour citrus flavour and an underlying creamy flavour reminiscent of coconut or banana”. There was an image of a green furry fruit on the front of the 300ml can, and the nutritional information on the back stated that there was 148 calories, 36g of sugar, and 44mg Vitamin C. The juice drink’s ingredients included; water, sucrose, soursop juice, citric acid and ascorbic acid. On opening the can, the smell reminded me of flat Lilt. The juice drink also tasted sweet and tropical. I picked up hints of pineapple and the creaminess of a flavour something like coconut and fortunately not like banana (as regular readers will know that I hate the flavour of banana in drinks). The print on the front of the can stated; “Good and refreshing” and it definitely was, but health research warns against over consumption of this fruit, as it could cause Parkinson’s Disease – tests continue on that one! Cinabar wouldn’t drink any stating that it was a “toxic fruit drink”, so I drank the lot and it was very nice indeed, but I don’t think I’ll go back for more as I’ll stick to the less risky Lilt!
