They have wrecked the taste by cutting the amount of sugar in Ribena the new stuff tastes awful! I believe they have added an ingredient to make the new recipe seem as thick as the previous one.

I hear what you saying, but cutting down the sugar is not necessarily a bad thing...and whilst i appreciate that taste is subjective, i applaud the effort in the attempt to reduce the sugar content while retaining some remnants of the ribena flavour

No probs
I agree with jona77...last bottle I had I thought there must have been a mix up ,tasted like the low sugar bottle but was full sugar bottle,not happy...hot for price though.

Nah in my book it’s another tax if they didn’t want the extra profit give it to charity. The point is where will it all end?! It’s s nanny state gone mad!

Not Ribena, but I must say I do like Robinson's Apple and Blackcurrant despite it having no added sugar so that is worth a try at a pound a bottle.

I'll be boycotting this new crap, and would encourage others to do the same.

Agreed but it tastes like ass now... And that decision should be down to the buyer not dictated to by another tax

just saw this offer and was going to ask if the recipe had been changed becuse of the stupid sugar tax, and yes it does taste bad now!
time to find an alterntive!

I’m actually drinking Vimto now instead though I believe the recipe changed on this too though it’s not a noticeable taste difference unlike ribena! I think it’s the ingredient they used to make it appear thicker in consistency that has really affected the taste now the parent company did the same with lucozade ( reduced the sugar content)and that tastes crap now too!

I won't be buying Ribena anymore, I'm not interested in artificial sweeteners, they already offered a light version for people that don't mind their drinks tasting of shit so they should have just put the price up a few pence instead.
I had a 4 day migraine and couldn't figure it out. Looked at the Ribena and saw that it now has artificial sweeteners in, known migraine triggers.
Pretty much all squash now has artificial sweeteners in so it's water or full on fizzy drinks for me from now on.
There's a small but sizeable minority that this affects from a migraine perspective. Also there is the controversy over the health risks of artificial sweeteners, even compared to sugar.

If you’re looking for alternative squash-type drinks, look in the cordial section of the supermarket, as these tend to be aimed at adults and are less likely to be low-sugar or sugar free. Elderflower cordial is really nice and the Bottlegreen and Belvoir versions are both free from artificial sweeteners.
I have to agree about the taste now, wish I hadn't bought my current one after finishing my stash of the sugar version. No more hot Ribena for me
