I love the original lucozade and drink it on a regular basis but I also like to try the different flavours now available for a change. One of the many flavours now available is orange.

The orange lucozade comes in a variety of different sized bottles and even a can version. The most recent bottle that I purchased was the 500ml at a cost of £0.99. I think this is a fairly good price for this size bottle but if you look out for special offers you can often find multi-packs of individual bottles for a good price especially in Iceland.

The drink itself is a sparkling orange glucose drink, and is designed to provide you with energy. This drink is very high in sugar and contains the following nutritional information per 250ml:
175 – Calories
34.5g – Sugar
Fat – Nil
Saturates – Nil
Salt – Trace

One of the things that I have noticed about the Orange flavoured lucozade is that it is not as fizzy as the original flavour. Also it tastes quite sticky and sweet, I know it contains lots of sugar but the original does not taste overly sweet like this does. You can taste the orange but it is a little weak in flavour and tastes more like a fizzy orange cordial with added sugar. It is actually made with 5% orange juice from concentrate but I find it hard to tell it is actual orange juice from the taste. I do still buy this lucozade if I need an energy boost and the other flavours are not available but it is never my first choice. I would say that it is still worth a try if you have not had it before but to me the original or lemon will always be my favourites.
