Fruit shoots 24 Pack £5 @ Farmfoods

Found 2nd Jul 2014
While in my local Farmfoods, I noticed they are doing Fruit Shoots 200ml Bottles in packs of 24 for £5.
Only have the Orange and Apple & Blackcurrant Flavours.
But I thought was a good price :-)

BEWARE!!!! These really rot children's teeth.

Nationwide btw

A good price but agree with chrsinne, they are extremely sweet ! Not voted either way.

To lower the risk tooth rot dilute them about a third of the strength using water and make sure your kids are brushing properly as everything rots teeth

These drinks are full of sugar, I suggest not buying them for your children.

According to my local dentist these only contain one teaspoon of sugar.
Always thought they had a much higher sugar content.
Heat for price.

All drinks have sugar in even crisps do all u av to do is brush your teeth then u will be ok

Bought these yesterday for a party only 200ml bottles so only 1.6g of sugar in so okay for a treat as above you must brush your childs teeth obviously but these are no added sugar the old ones used to be bursting with sugar heat added op

These contain Sugar substitutes (aspartame etc), which are more dangerous to kids than Sugar.
Don't fall for cynical multi-million-pound marketing strategies that present these drinks as fun and fashionable.

ITT: People living roughly 5 years in the past.

The masses of sugar was removed from these years ago and replaced with sweetener. They have 1.6g of sugar in a bottle - in comparison, a servng of heinz ketchup has 4g.

Do people honestly think McDonalds would still sell it with Happy Meals if it had tons of sugar after all the slack it received?

Robinson's Blackcurrant Fruit Shoot H2O, ingredients:

Spring Water (99.4%), Citric Acid, Natural Flavouring, Sweeteners (Aspartame, Acesulfame K), Preservatives (Dimethyl Dicarbonate, Potassium Sorbate)

Robinson's Blackcurrant and Apple Fruit Shoot, ingredients:

Water, Glucose-Fructose Syrup, Fruit Juices from Concentrate (Blackcurrant 5%, Apple 4%), Sugar, Citric Acid, Stabiliser (Xanthan Gum), Vintamins (C, Niacin, Pantothenic Acid, B6), Acidity Regulator (Sodium Citrate), Natural Flavouring, Preservatives (Potassium Sorbate, Dimethyl Dicarbonate), Natural Colour (Anthocyanins).

So you get a choice: half a tonne of sugar; or 'spring water with artificial sweetener'.

And people *pay* for these!

didn't a study not long ago show that the whole aspartame is evil thing was a myth? and in fact had no real negative effecs at all. I maybe wrong but I deffo seen or read it somehwere

I'm sure the sweetener aspartame has been banned in the states they think it's cancer causing.
I also avoid these type of drinks much healthier to just dilute fresh with a bit of water.

My 6 year old little girl drinks these quite often and still has all of her baby teeth and no fillings. She doesn't appear to be glowing and has no other significant health problems that I can see.

It's all about moderation and common sense - I've no idea what I'd feed her or give her to quench her thirst if I took notice of all the fruitcakes warning me about everything we eat or drink! Dont give her tapwater as its got fluoride in, but don't give her bottled water either as you can get cancer from the stuff they use to make the plastic bottles. Don't stand outside with your mouth open catching rain as that's polluted from all the CO2 and chemtrails that are in the atmosphere. The streams and rivers are full of poisons, fertiliser and chemicals that have dissolved in the rainwater than runs from farmland saturated in dangerous stuff the farmers put in to boost crop yields and see off pests - and so on!

I'm sure you'd suggest feeding them smoothies all day long as it's "full of fruit goodness"? Check the post above yours... makes much more sense.

FYI, smoothies aren't fruit... they're made of fruit... The process of blending destroys fibre and the amount of fruit in smoothies leads to too much sugar in a child's diet. Unless, of course, they have them in moderation, just like, oh I don't know, fruit squash perhaps?

Just as an example - innocent smoothie 19 grams of sugar, fruit shoot less than a gram.

Just brush your teeth afterwards..... Possible the worse advice I have ever heard to compensate drinking sugar filled drinks

I was told by the dentist to much sugar intake can also rots the teeth from the inside too.
so brushing all the time will not help, prolong the problem.

we always make fresh juice for the little ones that come to owe house and that way you cant go wrong.
little ones love it and they are happy and so are there parents. every one is happy.

I didn't comment anything about the smoothies, but I'm sure a smoothie is a better choice then a fruit shoot.
If you are worried about destroying fibre in fruit you can use a slow juicer.

My children drink water, milk, homemade lemonades (usually sweetened with honey), diluted fresh fruit juices, fruit and herbal teas.
Occasionally something less healthy and sweet. And they eat fruit and of course brush their teeth too

Actually true as sugars soften tooth enamel and can be brushed away if you brush straight after.

Each to their own....if you don't like a product don't buy it, but for goodness sake get off the moral high horse and leave each parent to bring up and provide what they believe to be the best for their own children. Personally, hot! Handy for drinks on the run and happy to give them to my daughter as a treat every now and then!

What is the point in buying them if you are going to dilute them!! Makes no sense to me. I advised not buying them as I have first hand experience of the harm they do.

These have been £5 for a while now in Farmfoods , in fact the whole of 2014 , what's took so long to post this

Because I've only just been to Farmfoods for the first time in while and noticed them!
So I brought them and thought I know I'll post it on hukd to share with people that might be interested.
As I could see that no one else had!?

Appreciate all deals posted. I am aware of what these do to kids teeth, hence my comment. I have a niece going into hospital to have all her teeth removed, aged 4. Her parents blame fruit shoots.
