Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: GlaxoSmithKline Lucozade Pink Lemonade Confirmed sighting: GlaxoSmithKline Lucozade Pink Lemonade
Posted: 18:05 Sun 28-Oct-2012. Price: 1.19/1-litre bottle. Location: Sainsbury. Nutritional unusualness: 57 kcal, 13.6g sugars per 100ml.
"Grocery Gems" reports: A lot nicer than the recent Lucozade Cola! Once poured I was glad to see that the Lucozade Pink Lemonade has the same lovely blush pink colour as the bottle. The drink is fizzy and very sweet as you would expect from a high glucose drink. For a "lemonade" drink it doesn't taste very strongly of lemons, which may be disappointing to lemon fans. It just has a soft fruity taste that is not immediately identifiable. The ingredients list the fruit juices (2%) as lemon, cranberry and raspberry. If you don't like your lemonade too "lemony" then this is the drink for you, but lovers of real lemonade should probably steer clear.

...Thanks "GG" - I found the flavour similarly tricky to pin down, until I remembered Maynards Sour Patch Kids from a couple of weeks ago. (And, with the launch earlier this year of Lilt-alike Lucozade Energy Caribbean Crush, maybe GSK will roll out extra-sugary versions of every soft drink on the market?) For a more "traditional" energy rush, there's also the option of: raspberry flavoured Mountain Dew Game Fuel (which I've seen in Asda, but only in 1-litre bottles); Emmi's Caffe Latte Cappuccino (pictured here with their similar Flat White product, which it may be replacing); or - for those above legal drinking age - Carling's Zest Refreshing Winter Lager with a hint of Spiced Orange, which I enjoyed for both its citrusy taste, and because including "Refreshing" in its name reminds me of Mitchell and Webb's sketches about two alcoholics.

Lovely and sweet.

Comment: Yes, I like Lucozade Cola as well! It's kind of smooth around the edges. Not that I don't also like other colas. I enjoy a variety of takes on the cola flavour.

Comment: Lucozade Cola got a huge thumbs down from me.. tasted like typical cheap cola. Can't beat Pepsi.
