Tastes amazing

You must love blackcurrant! Expensive!

Ribena, Ribena, Ribena, I love it! Ribena Blackcurrant, Ribena Apple and Ribena Strawberry - you name it as long as it's Ribena! So why do I love Ribena so much? Throughout my childhood, there were 6 children in my immediate family. My parents would never buy us Ribena as it would get drunk too...

expensive if not bought on offer!

Ribena is a lovely blackcurrant juice drink, and one of my favourite staple drink that I can dilute to taste and drink every day! I like to save money, so at all times I have a bottle of diluted ribena under my desk at work so I can make loads of drinks throughout the day. The concentrated...

The cost compared to other brand, sugar content

Different people have different remedies for when they have a cold or a sore throat and for some reason whenever I was feeling poorly as a child my Mum would always make me a cup of hot Ribena with a slice of lemon on it, telling me it would help my throat to feel better. Some years later and...

“Its Bogey Coloured”

published 29/07/2004

Its bogey coloured

Very artificial in taste

First things first - I know this is the blackcurrent category but ciao have ignored my requests for a specific category. The release of the film Shrek II has brought in its wake an array of all things bogey coloured (because that’s the colour of ogres) and whilst browsing around Sainsbury’s the...

It tastes nice and I have it hot or cold

It's full of sugar and it's pricey

This story DOES have a point but takes you on a little journey with some of the characters who have all expressed their opinions on behalf of MARSDEN. So if you don’t like quirky opinions – bugger off now! ~~ The Players: ~~ - Mrs O’RileyO’malleyO’lawks – a...

Lack of more flavours, high sugar content

Ribena has been one of those drinks that have been around for ages and I suppose one of the reasons why I have only recently started enjoying this fabulous drink is because it has been rather over shadowed by its more illustrious competitor Vimto. Ribena is made by the giant conglomerate Smith...

Rich In Vitamic C

High In Sugar

I sometimes get fed up with fizzy drinks, as often they give me indigestion so I do tend to drink a lot of water, which can be very refreshing but let's face it, it is a little bit boring. Sometimes I simply fancy a nice soft drink to quench my thirst and once in a while I enjoy a bottle of...

it's drinkable

is very expensive and there's not a lot in it

We ran out of juice on sunday and had to go to the local garage for some as we needed it for the kid's packed lunches the next day. Hubby went in, while I stayed in the car, and came out again brandishing a 1 litre bottle of Ribena Original. Into the car he gets grumbling and mumbling about...

Satisfactory

an interesting colour

sugar content, price

I was in Tescos the other day and, as I am not a great fan of fizzy drinks, but am like a slave to ribena toothkind, i decided to buy a 2l bottle of ribena original because my norm, ribena toothkind, had run out. My conscience was ok because on the front of the bottle, on a purple label around...

Not quite as healthy as the ads imply

Ribena beverages have yet to make their way across the Atlantic on a commerical basis. Indeed, a visit to one of the official Ribena websites (http://www.ribena.com/flashindex.html) confirms that the land of my birth in not among the 22 countries in which these drinks are sold. So for me, Ribena...

“Ribenaberry Yummness”

published 13/07/2009

Lasts a long time, full flavour, tokens to collect

Quite Expensive

Im quite fussy when it comes to drinks and as I try not to drink fizzy drinks (unless theres alcohol involved lol) it can be quite hard to find a "squash" drink that I like but I have to say that Ribena is awesome, its full of flavour and a little bit goes a long way. Its very strange though...

“My childhood drink! Yum!”

Plenty of vitamin C and tastes great!

Can have a high sugar content

Hello fellow Ciaoers! I hope your well, rested and ready for the weekend! I decided to do a review on my favourite childhood drink....Ribena! You may have seen it on the shelf at the supermarket, tried it yourself or seen the ads on television, but pretty much everybody knows the Ribena label! So...

“Fruit in a bottle”

published 12/08/2005

really Fruity taste

A shade sweet perhaps, and a bit pricey

II'm feeling a bit nostalgic tonight, I find myself wandering back to my childhood with a glimpse of the Ribena bottle standing on the kitchen counter. To be honest we never got Ribena very often it was too expensive which it still is to this day. On the occasions when we did though it was a big...

Lovely Taste!

a lot of sugar....apperantely

When you think of Ribena, well when I do at least, I don’t imagine it has a lot of sugars. I don’t know whether because it’s still, or even because it’s blackcurrant, but I was so surprised to see the amount of sugars that were in the original. So, I usually tend to go for...

Great taste, lovely smell

Expensive

The Bottle The bottle is clear plastic and the lid is a solid dull gold coloured plastic. Around the lid and top of the bottle is a gold foil which makes it look very luxurious. On the front of the bottle is the brand and product name that the bottle is 100% recycled and is rich in vitamin C. On...
