Bit rich when they dump artificial 'sugar' in it these days. I remember the glory days when this stuff actually tasted nice. Oh well. Happy memories.

Also Kia ora 2 x 1litres for £1.50......"jus for me n ma doooog".

Sorry, but all Robinson's no added sugar squashes are abysmal now, with a nasty sucralose aftertaste. However, the added sugar "namesake" of this - Robinson's Orange Barley Water - is utterly glorious, even if the RRP is scandalously high at 1.99 for 850ml (I only stock up when it's on offer).

"absolutely no added sugar" became a synonym for added sweeteners. Seeing this phrase in my eyes instantly disqualifies the product, whatever it is and I only can wish I'm not the only one as only then, possibly, companies will replace excessive sugar with truly nothing added. Sour, natural fruit taste is what we should be after instead of fake sweetness of additives. No amount of (patented ?!? WTF) barley flour would help this.
PS. Less ingredients the better - there are so many natural, fresh (to be kept in fridge freezer), not from concentrate fruit juices around - tesco branded, iceland, don simon, even aldi has some natural fruit juices - there's no need for squashes.

Have you tried it?

These were 39p in Farmfoods three weeks ago. I got eight of them. I go through one a week.

Have you tried it?



As a matter of fact I did, I bought one without noticing "no added sugar" phrase and as Elevation mentioned - aftertaste is not pleasant not to mention questionable health "benefits".
