Do you prefer Ribena from a carton or plastic bottle? I was in my local artisan bakery, Greggs, yesterday and upon placing my carton of Ribena on the counter I was informed I could get a bottle for same price (meal deal thing) - I told her its nicer from a carton and she agreed. She informed me the manager has told her to push the deal, I asked if they're received much feedback and the consensus seems to be that parents push for bottle but their children insist on carton. What is your/ your child's Ribena packaging preference? Do you prefer Vimto? Should Greggs reintroduce raisin eyes on gingerbread men?

well this is a funny ask but we're a vimto family so no idea what the ribena from a bottle tastes like. I know I find the carton ok and that I don't like the dilute ribena at all. No opinion on gingerbread men lol

I'm a big fan of hot Vimto but I find its too "watery" with dilute - And fizzy vimto with a chip barm is a classic

Comes from the same manufactures of your all day pharmaceuticals and toothpaste must taste great from a bottle????

I prefer the carton and straw method because Ribena squirts in my mouth if you know what I mean. I don't like the bottle because I have to put the effort in and mouth Ribena if you know what I mean.

No idea what a chip barm is if I'm honest. haven't tried vimto hot it doesn't sound appealing. and my vimto is sweet we don't follow the dilute instructions well :D ribena in the other hand I can't get it to taste like the carton when I use the dilute stuff.

That is true. Except its manufactured by Suntory, a Japanese brewing and distilling company who have nothing to do with health products other than Oolong tea. But yeah apart from that you're right

hahaha chip barm = chip batch/butty/cob etc. Can't reccomend hot Vimto enough. especially bonfire night to compliment the parkin cake

Maybe I'll take the plunge and try it hot then, my 8 year old wants to anyway so I'll just have a sip from his glass.

I'm not one for blackcurrent but I hate the orange flavoured ones in cartons, they taste much better out of a bottle (a glass is best of all).

Coke is sold in glass because that's all some will drink out of. People say they can taste plastic and the paint on cans, so I guess cartons are the same

I refuse to drink tango from a can as I can taste the metal but for some reason only tango orange. not tried the other flavours so can't comment. easily drink 7up, irn bru, vimto from a tin. everything always tastes best from glass in my opinion.
