Edited by:"YikYak"Found 7th Nov
At London Waterloo station: Lucozade are giving out x2 150ml lucozade orange drinks for free. I went back a few times.

Platform 1-8 is where i found two of their set ups.
Might be all day ?
Might be at other stations too.

Set up a stand at your local train station perhaps ?

Sugar free Lucozade is a bit of an oxymoron.

True. But these cans are not sugar free.

Ah, was Lucozade Zero or something the other week. What's the point in that? This also appears to have reduced sugar, hence the sweeteners.

What next? Sugar with reduced sugar? Now 10% less sugar in each 1kg bag!

It's all a bit rubbish really, there are very few flavoured drinks I can buy any more - all gone a bit aspartame mad. Given the alleged health risks around aspartame, though, I'm kinda glad my body rejects it.

Never really considered that before. Must be difficult. But as you say, in some ways probably for the best!

They gave us loads, 2 at a time, though it's quite gross haha

Other artificial sweeteners are available, slowly people are switching to them. Robinson's orange squash used to be all aspartame but now all the double strength ones are using Sucralose instead - which is much healthier. I don't think they like putting Aspartame in the concentrated versions as it could be a risk if you didn't put enough water in.

Risk of what? you mention "alleged health risks" however the extreamly extensive testing shows there is only an affect on those who can't process phenylalanine which is a much more serious problem as its much more abundant in meat/dairy/soy products. The only contriversey seems to be internet hoaxes and those with a vivid imagination, which has caused some companies to exchange it for sucralose or saccharin; but since there is no evidence they are any safer I imagine the same crowd will target them in due course.

There is no need for sweetened drinks - just stop drinking the cr*p!

I guess in the same way there's no need for food with flavour right? Lets all just eat Huel forever, I mean essentially we only need food to live right. Now eat up. Yum yum.

Water's pretty good, and cheap as long as it doesn't come in a bottle! Tea, coffee, beer, wine even - no need to add sweetener to any of them.

Seems to be people giving out these tiny cans of Coke / Diet Coke most days in Manchester, at the top of Market Street going towards the Arndale from Picadilly Gardens.

You get a voucher for a free 500ml bottle too.

I'm not quite sure what your point was then? I'm assuming you're saying don't drink things that are sweetened either with sugar or sweetener in the first place because they're not good for you? But it's not like beer and wine are good for you either and they still contain sugars too (It could be argued tea and coffee aren't exactly great either depending on what you do with them) but people enjoy them so they drink them.

You're not wrong but some people don't seem to be able to leave the house without some kind of 'pop' grasped in their chubby mit. We've all seen the articles of how many spoons of sugar there are in just a single can/bottle of this stuff - there's a view that sugar is addictive which may explain some of these unwise behaviours and there's a growing epidemic of diabetes which has the potential to sink the NHS.

Of course that doesn't make beer or wine a good idea but the scale of that problem is small in comparison.

Greggs giving bottles free after 2pm too

Aspartame kills brain cells. Don't know why it's so wide spread
