Not very nice tbh, but good price.
I think I'll stick to Fentimans.
Think it's all stores - same offer in Farnham. Low sugar version 9p cheaper.
Terrible offers at Waitrose at the moment. This one is about the best of a bad lot!
Even £1.28 isn't that amazing, it's only a litre or perhaps less! £3.29 is an absolute joke for non alcoholic fizzy pop and I agree it doesn't taste as nice as Fentimans.
I used to love this, used to pay around £3-4 for a 750ml bottle before the sugar levy came into action and instead of charging extra they changed the recipe and now it’s terrible.

You could say that about 90% of UK fizzy drinks since the sugar tax came in. I do wonder if any of the so-called "experts" realised beforehand that setting a 5% threshold for sugar before tax kicked in would make even companies who already had a sugar-free version of their drink radically change the formula of their sugared version?

I suspect those experts just thought the companies would only charge more for their sugared version to account for the tax and keep the sugar level the same. Nope, very few did! Even though Coca-Cola did keep their formula for Coke, they still managed to wreck plenty of their other sugared drinks to the point where they're actually quite nasty now, despite almost every one already having a sugar-free version. Maybe that was the real point - turn people off *all* flavoured fizzy drinks? Heck, I'm mostly on water and sparkling water now myself (even flavoured versions of those are foul!).

And now, there's rumours they're going to have a go at sweets next. Er, why not actually get decent tasting sweeteners sorted out first? It's incredible that after all these decades, there isn't a sweetener that doesn't taste awful when used in place of sugar, if my experience of drinks has been anything to go by.

Absolutely agree. The taste of all these lower sugar and such versions of drinks is awfull. I wouldn't drink them if they were free, that's how bad they taste to me.
thanks for the information. i was about to order a few bottles but lower sugar really ruins the taste so that's a no from me
Tastes nice
good price
it’s hard to find anything without artificial seeeteners these days
