Robinson’s Fruit Creations Pear, Blackcurrant and Cherry (Sainsbury's) By @Cinabar
We drink a lot of orange or blackcurrant squash here at Foodstuff Finds. Recently I’ve been venturing into the cordials section of the supermarket and trying to find something a bit different to make a refreshing soft drink. I spotted this Robinson’s Fruit Creations Pear, Blackcurrant and Cherry drink, promising twice the fruit. I poured a decent portion into my glass and topped up with water. It looked pleasingly pink, and I gave the drink a sip.
I have to admit I was hoping for more pear in the flavour, and I thought there might be the hint of pear drops in the flavour, but the pear taste was very mild indeed. The other fruit flavours were sweet, but the blackcurrant and the cherry took over, and made a pleasant berry drink. I did like the cordial, but it was similar to a number of berry medley type of drinks I’ve had before. The real sales point for me of this drink was the idea of the pear, and I found this particular flavour a bit too subtle. The pear could have been the showstopper and not just a background taste, but not to worry it was still a nice fruity drink, and one I’ll continue to enjoy.
