Rhubarb Lemonade Sparkling Soft Drink (Black Country Living Museum) By @SpectreUK

Rhubarb Lemonade Sparkling Soft Drink (Black Country Living Museum)

Cinabar's Birthday falls at the time of year when pretty much nothing is open. Not many museums or other attractions are open in the winter months for understandable reasons. We usually go away to a spa hotel for a couple of days, but the last one we visited had dropped in quality considerably due to lack of staff and a poor booking system. So we described to rest a little and visit whatever was open at the time.

We haven't visited the Black Country Living Museum for maybe more than ten years. I just figured it hadn't changed that much since last time we went. How wrong was I? Well, they have plenty more shops and plenty more actors to describe relatively olden times. Unfortunately the canal boat trip and coal mine weren't open, but we did notice that plenty more buildings are being built to house more recent times in the sixties and seventies. So we'll definitely visit later in the year.

We mainly visited for the traditional fish and chips lunch. It's always been excellent and didn't disappoint this visit either. Whilst in the seating area I tried this Franklin and Son's Ltd., Rhubarb Lemonade Sparkling Soft Drink. It was sparkling rhubarb and lemon flavoured juice drink. At 106 calories per 100ml the 275ml bottle seemed pretty heavy on my calories count for the day, but I had worked out like a crazy person early morning so I shouldered the weight so to speak.

Pretty fizzy on opening the bottle there was a decent smell of sweet rhubarb. This Rhubarb Lemonade Sparkling Soft Drink had a lovely sweetness from the rhubarb to start with, followed by a little apple flavour from the ingredients, and then the sheer sourness from lemon in the lemonade. It was a very flavoursome indeed. I'll certainly have a bottle of this again next time we visit the Black Country Living Museum and enjoy a fish and chips lunch.

Please see photograph for the ingredients.
