Daymer Bay: Pear, Elderfower & Jasmine Juice (Degusta) By @SpectreUK
Staying with my healthy(ish) month, I have this Daymer Bay Pear, Elderfower & Jasmine drink to try. Named after a long sandy beach in North Cornwall, it’s a mix of natural flavours of fruits, plants and water, with no added sugar, is packed full of vitamin Bs, and has no artificial flavourings, preservatives or colourings. It’s also suitable for vegetarians and vegans, and is less than 80 calories for those that are trying to cut a few pounds. So this drink is uber-healthy? Does it sound too good to be true? I don’t know I’m just a blog writer… “What does it taste like?” I hear you ask…
Well on opening the bottle there was a predominant smell of apple juice, which is high on the ingredients, if not in the title. Dominant apple is mixed with pear and elderflower, and a touch of jasmine at the back of the aroma. The pear takes over on initial taste. This refreshing pear flavour quickly mixes with the apple, then a thimble full of elderflower and a tickle of jasmine to finish. This is a tasty drink, though it could be considered as a pear and apple juice with a twist. Refreshing over ice, I’m sure, rather than gulped down out of a bottle between boring meetings in an overly heated office … I’d rather be on that long sandy beach, even in chilly January, and that’s a fact!
