Ribena - Raspberry and Rhubarb (Ocado) By @Cinabar

Ribena - Raspberry and Rhubarb

The sun is shining, the sky is blue today, we are ignoring the wind howling in the background. I was after a nice summery soft drink and decided to try out this Raspberry and Rhubarb edition of Ribena. Firstly, I always get confused when a new variety of Ribena doesn’t include blackcurrants, because that is their thing, but here we are. These are just the two fruits in cordial with no blackcurrants in sight.

I poured some Raspberry and Rhubarb Ribena into the glass and topped it up with water. I could immediately smell the rhubarb and couldn’t wait to give it a try. When I took a sip, I realised it was actually the raspberry that shone through first, sweet, fruity and juicy and then at the end of the flavour came the sharper tangy flavour of rhubarb. It was quite a moreish taste and one that is like summer in a glass. Sweet then a little tart. OK, so maybe I can cope without the blackcurrants because this combo is definitely a winner for me.
