Lucozade REVIVE (Birmingham, New Street) [by @NLi10]

I've been pottering through the range of new Lucozade drinks for a while now and while waiting for friends at a station came across this new addition to the range. The REVIVE packaging manages to look both girly and sporty at the same time without being too off-putting. Only after I bought it did I notice that it contained Ginger which I am not a massive fan of.

The flavour of the drink is lighter than expected and is slightly tingly. There is really a strong lemon taste but it's not unpleasant, and it's not too fizzy unlike the original bright orange Lucozade.

The packaging attributes the energising and revitalising properties of the drink to various B vitamins that are contained within it. I suspect upon reading the ingredients that a lot of the reinvigoration is due to the Caffeine. This isn't unpleasant, and doesn't make you hyperactive, and is just a nice boost to start the day. I think this would probably work well in a tired office environment, and less well for sporting activities.

For a pound it's not a bad pick me up. I think if I was in a similar situation and out and about or feeling a little bit rundown, then I may pick it up again. I don't think it's something I would want to have every day.
