Lovey Sweet Taste :)
Review from Ribena EMEA - BV
I love this product!! I've been drinking Ribena for years and probably will for years to come. It's got a very sweet blackcurrant taste that comes through. It's great with ice or mixed with lemonade :) The only negative is that it due to it's almost syrupy consistency and dark purple colour, it could stain on clothing or furniture. Due to the high sugar content it's not wise to put too much in your drink and make sure it's suitably diluted. But apart from that, this is a delicious, refreshing and thirst quenching drink!! :) Perfect for summer days out in the garden for everyone!!
Is it really a healthy product
I was looking at Ribena and the product description is contradictory. It states that it contains Acesulfame K and sucralose, which are artificial sweeteners, and later states that it doesn't contain any artificial sweeteners! Which is it? Totally lost confidence in product as I have to avoid artificial sweeteners
My absolute thanks to the other reviewers who've saved me from wasting money on this. Ribena was the ONLY drink with no sweeteners. And they've got a sugar free option already! Not ever buying this again....
Avoid this product
Laced with artificial sweeteners and tastes awfull avoid ! Used to be a good selling product until they added artificial sweeteners. Buy rocks instead much better
Sadly ruined from original recipe
I used to love this stuff, it was our go to hot drink for sore throats, add a bit of honey or lemon or just plain. Sadly now it contains sweetness and tastes awful, have switched to Rocks or Belvoir who still make sweetener free black currant but sadly this is ruined, it really tastes awful and would never give it to my kids
Bring back the original recipe!
Yuck, what on earth has happened to Ribena? I’ll tell you - looking at the label it now contains artificial sweeteners and has reduced its actual blackcurrant content even lower - it tastes RANK! I’m not going to bother buying this toilet cleaner again when there are other brands of blackcurrant cordial available that taste so much nicer. Poor show Ribera.
A classic drink I've loved since childhood has been ruined. I opened a bottle and thought it was off but then realised they've removed the sugar and the majority of the blackcurrant and replaced them with sweeteners. Madness when there were sugar free options available for those who wanted them. Not only is it now unsuitable for family members who have reactions to sweeteners (not to mention the serious health worries associated with them in general) but I will never buy it again as it tastes so awful
Recipe has been butchered and now contains sweeten
Recipe has been butchered and now contains sweeteners, tastes awful.
Ribena was always my go to drink whilst growing up but sadly it’s not been contaminated with sweetners which cause an horrible after taste! Definitely not the Ribena I grown up with and certainly won’t be buying again until the recipe is restored!
Since Ribena started adding horrendous sweeteners to their non-diet versions. I have discovered much better options that the kids love. Try Rocks Blackcurrant or Belvoir Blueberry and Blackcurrant. Delicious and only sweetened with natural sugar.
