Cant get the subscribe and save price :( Havent found anything close to Ribena, most supermarket brands are too watery. When did they change the formula? Was it recent if so places like farmfoods and B&M might still stock the old version
When I see it on offer in supermarkets now, the shelves are full! No one seems to want to buy it
What have they actually done with it?
You sure you didn’t finish all 24 cartons That may have had something to do with the headache (embarrassed)
Not a deal as iceland and b&m sell these cheaper, was looking at these last week on amazon so never bothered.

I don't need ribena to cause me flatulence!.🌬🌪😷
Or they could have just had the balls to stick to the original recipe and let adults decide whether to pay the extra and how much sugar they want to take in. I've not bought it since they changed the recipe and chucked away the bottle I bought, not realising they'd changed the recipe until I took a mouthful. Obviously sales have not gone down enough for them to change their mind.
This is the sugar tax 'drain cleaner version' XD Sugar - New: 11.5g - Original: 26g /250ml Ribena drinks now contain under 5g of sugar per 100ml bottle and have been replaced by controversial sweeteners Acesulfame K and Sucralose. The company has also thickened the drink so its consistency appears to be the same as before by adding Polydextrose - an ingredient known to cause bloating, flatulence and diarrhea. (Sorry, DailyFail link)
Better than offer price £2 Asda price no offer £1.99 for 1.5ltr
This is the normal one on the top of bottle it say "Bursting With 30% Friut Juice"

A great price for this. Next size down 850ml is £2.50 so almost double for 10p more. Yum
Totally agree with all the comments about artificial sweeteners - they all taste vile, even when they claim to have 'natural' origins, or are put in for padding/preservative reasons like maltodextrin :p Instead of treating us like kids & simply reducing the sugar, removing it, or simply selling some full sugar versions, they add artficial crap! I refuse to buy any drinks or foods that have any of that rubbish, and I'm hoping enough customers do the same - affecting their sales - to force a change.
Pathetic. There were plenty of diet/low sugar variants on the market for those who can stand the awful taste of artificial sweeteners. Why the hell couldn't they just leave the full sugar versions alone? Idiots. Ribena Suntory is also on my boycott list. The manufacturers of Belvoir and Rocks are doing well from me so far.
Ribena said they were cutting sugar out for the good of the nations health. I don't believe that. I think they were scared they'd lose sales with the amount sugar tax would add on. Ribena was a premium cordial as it was, I would have been happy to pay more to keep it with the original recipe. I suspect many others would too. I didn't even know they'd changed the recipe with the sneaky way they did it. I took a mouthful and nearly spat it out, I questioned my senses. Then I looked at the bottle to see they'd put sweetener in it. I never bought it again since. Some drinks have good implementations of sweeteners, like Pepsi Max, I can't even taste the sweetener or the disgusting after taste. Ribena though as someone said above does possibly take like cat vomit (not having tried cat vomit I can't be sure). Obviously the sales loss wasn't as bad as I'd hoped it would be for them to relent. Still, bring back original recipe Ribena!
Also available in Morrisons, £3.75 each or 2 for £4
I remember the first time I tried the new unsweetened version, I wrote Ribena an email complaining that the batch must Have been incorrect. Had an email saying all Ribena will taste like this now :(
