Guava Juice (Pinoy Foods, Birmingham Indoor Market) [By @SpectreUK]

Pokka is a Japanese company that has been canning and bottling ready to drink tea and fruit drinks since 1977. Pokka export to 50 countries in Asia, the Middle-East and Europe and has 27 restaurants located in Singapore, Hong Kong and Macau.

I picked up this imported Guava juice drink in Birmingham Indoor Market. The drink is made from real guava juice and is rich in vitamin C. It has a very tropical taste with a hint of mango to the flavour. There is a sweet syrup tang, but not overpoweringly sweet. I found guava juice very moreish and easy to drink. Although thirst quenching, I found the can emptied far too quickly and I was left wishing it had been packaged in a larger carton, rather than a tiny can. Believe it or not, I’d had a good workout (in a vain attempt to burn off some of the flab) and found this drink a healthier alternative to an energy drink, although I also had to raid the fridge for a glass of orange juice to further take the edge off my thirst.
