San Pellegrino have re-released their Orange and Lemon sodas in the original sugar-only recipes without artificial sweetener or Stevia. It's not quite the original recipe (10% less sugar than before) but I can't taste the difference whereas I most certainly could with their artificially sweetened versions. Apparently these were released for Ocado only but they have now turned up in Home Bargains at £3.00 for 6 330ml cans.

It might only be a limited time re-release. You can read more about this here:

Ingredients
Water,Lemon Juice (16%) (from Concentrate 11%, Lemon Juice 5%), Sugar, Carbon Dioxide, Natural Lemon Flavouring, Stabiliser (Pectins)

Barrs are really missing a trick by not re-releasing the old Irn Bru recipe in a "Special Edition" and selling at a premium price. I know people who would spend a fortune on a can of full-fat Bru on the rare occasions that it was an absolute necessity .

I guess it takes a lot to admit you are wrong, which is why I was surprised - and delighted - by the Limonata re-release.

"If it ain't broke, why fix it"? comes to mind. It's about the only fizzy drink I can tolerate (on the rare occasions I drink any)

As a Glaswegian I'm vaguely aware of the furore around Irn-Bru's sugar content being changed, but not sure on the latest with that one.

It's all to do with greed.
Artificial sweeteners are sooooooooooooo much cheaper than sugar.

By the way, this was one of the Deals of the Week so plenty of stock featured on the displays just inside the doors.
I bought them in Crow Road, Glasgow but have also seen them at the Govan branch.

Try Cawstons range of apple based drinks. It's a premium product and it tastes great, the rhubarb flavour is my favourite. On offer in Asda at the moment.

Will have a look when I'm next near an Asda. Really only drink fizzy pop when in a pub or now and then in the middle of summer Good to have options, though
Thanks op.
Had only just come back from Home Bargains when I saw this deal.
Went back out and got 5x lemon and an orange one. And I got the wife to stop off at the pub on the way back.
Hoping that the orange one is good because I've been buying Dalstons @ £26 for 24 cans.

Nope. Sugar Tax.

Have you seen the price of these even with artificial sweeteners?
Nothing to do with sugar tax.
Might extend my sift drink selection from Coke and Pepsi
Actually, having sampled a few of these over the past few days I have to come to the conclusion that both versions are nothing like the originals. The Aranciata is really nice and the reduction of sweetness works well in this version. It's not sharp or bitter but it is noticeably less sugary than before. Not a bad thing with the natural orange flavour and juice which is subtle and very pleasant.

The Limonata version however pales in comparison with the original. It's supposed to be sweet and sharp. Somehow the lack of sweetness seems to reduce the lemon bitterness too. The hit of the drink, which was always it's most pleasant feature, is therefore seriously diminished.

They're still better than the Stevol versions but not a return to the great drinks of before. I hope Home Bargains get some imported original recipe versions back in soon.

There's a lesson here: Don't tamper with perfection
