I gave up about 3/4 way through.
Bloody lovely, but far too sickly after that much.
Like sitting eating all the marzipan off a giant cake.

...
Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm..

Today's flavour : Orange

Not Sports-Orange, not Blood-Orange, Red-Orange, or any other Orange. Just Orange.
Just plain, simple, tastes-exactly-like-jelly Orange.
Tastes exactly like jelly!
Mmmm, Jelly.

Right then, I think this is more or less the end.
I bought a second box a while ago, when preparing to let Mum join in, and I've double checked both boxes that I've no other flavours left to try.
There's one untasted flavour left, Cherry Kola, but given how the last Kola went, I'm going to make the executive decision not to go near that one!

Overall Rating : 10/10
There've been a few bad eggs along the way, but nowhere near enough for me not to buy more boxes of these.
They're bloody gorgeous, and the huge variety gives you something (usually) nice to taste throughout the day.
I'd absolutely recommend these. But be sure to buy a 1.5Ltr bottle before you start.

Jay's Top Ten Picks
Ginger - It's got the kick!
Red Grape - A lovely grape flavour. Just like "Grape Soda"
Peach Iced Tea - Out of all the various Peach Iced Teas that I've tried, this tastes most like Lipton's Peach Iced Tea!
Watermelon - Super thirst quenching
Red Orange - Memories of Xmas stocking fillers!
Honey Melon - Glorious!!!
Pineapple - Not quite "Pineapple Juice", but a nice pineapple none-the-less.
Yellow Grapefruit - Definitely an acquired taste
Elderberry - Blue IcePops!!
Plain Ordinary Orange - Can't grumble! A good sweet orange flavour.

I have to say that I'm very tempted to indulge in these myself. Cheers Jay

Revenge of the Thread!

I'm still drinking these daily. They're great. It's awesome to have a variety of soft drinks each day, instead of buying a bottle of cordial and having to drink the same flavour over and over until it's gone.

This month's box of random flavours seems to have a couple of extra flavours mixed in that I've not had before.

Yesterday I had Cinnamon which wasn't as nice as I was hoping for. Far too sweet. I prefer my Cinnamon to be more spice than sweet. Rating : 2/5
Today I'm drinking Carrot and Orange, which is actually more spice-flavoursome as the Cinnamon one was. More of a Carrot Cake with a tinge of orange. Nice! Rating : 5/5

If there are any other oddities, I'll let you know.

Is that a significant price rise since the last time you bought them or are you talking about shipping costs? Are they not offering free delivery if tyou spend over £20?

I never did get around to ordering these.
Posted : Saturday, 29 May 2021, 15:41
Jayenkai
Yeah, it's the shipping cost.
It was zero just a few months ago, and it happily did that "Click the prime button, to find Free Delivery" thing..
Now, nada..
I mean, there's the odd box of just one single flavour, but that's not what I'm after!!!
Grrr.

I've ended up paying for the big 96 box in the screenshot.
It's still a stupid amount, but given there's twice as many drinks in the box than the other pack, it seemed like the lesser of two evils.

.. Fuxake..
*shakes fist* BREXIT!!!!

TBH, that postage cost is actually quite cheap. I've paid far more importing stuff - even before Brexit.

What you're getting, including cost of postage, is still very reasonable (when you compare it to ready-made drinks eg a small bottle of plain water is minimum 50p).

Just goes to show what a bargain it was before though.

Yeah, it's not been enough of a jump to make me reconsider getting them, put it that way

Ordered late on Saturday, the item was dispatched from a place in Spain, has already made it to the UK, has passed through customs, and is now with the Royal Mail...
...
God only knows how long the wait will be, now!

Royal Mail have been pretty ropey recently, especially with second class postage. TBF, international postage has been excellent - I ordered something from Italy recently and it arrived in 5 days, quicker than some UK orders...

Crikey! Turned up, today.
That's not too bad.
Our postman's enjoying the sun, it seems!

Nothing stands out, I'm afraid.
