Honey and Red Ginseng (Vanguard Store, Birmingham) [By @SpectreUK]

This Honey and Red Ginseng drink intrigued me in the shop. I like honey, but have no idea what Red Ginsing tastes like on its own. I may have had it mixed with other ingredients in drinks before, but not so prominent. Here it's mixed with honey although there isn't much of a percentage of it next to the amount of apple concentrate, so I was expecting this drink to taste more of apple and honey. Mmm... Apple and honey! On opening the golden coloured liquid's bottle I had a sharp smell of what could only be described as hotel showergel. Granted probably a pretty swanky hotel with all the trimmings. The type of place you'd want to steal (liberate) the showergel from, and anything else that wasn't nailed down on checking out! Nevertheless showergel is what this Honey and Red Ginsing drink smelt like. Its only saving grace is that it didn't smell like Dr Pepper! Blurrgh! It actually tasted like those chemically enhanced blueberry Skittles mixed with honey and soap. I need something to wash down the flavour. Pass me the Dr Pepper... :-s
