By Royal Appointment-Robinsons Blackcurrant Squash

AdvantagesRefreshing and versatile


"...One item she brought was Robinsons apple and blackcurrant, no added sugar, squash. She was quite right because although we had the orange squash, since every one has all ways said they didn't like blackcurrant, we didn't have this at home. So she did us all a favour because we all ended up liking it and I will probably be buying it again. ○◊○ Who are Robinsons? ○◊○ The company started as Robinson & Belville ..." Read review

Winter Warmer, or Summer Cooler

AdvantagesRefreshing, subtle flavourings

DisadvantagesStrong sweetened taste

"...to toddlers. Please note that Robinsons Apple & Blackcurrant contains a source of Phenylalanine - one of the main ingredients in artificial sweetener. Although Phenylalanine is actually an important part of our diet (assists protein) there are people who cannot metabolise phenylalanine and as such the warnings are included on all products containing phenylalanine. Robinsons Apple and Blackcurrant's taste is actually dominated by the apple ..." Read review

Its very Special

Advantagesnice flavour, sugar free, added vitamins, no artificial flavourings or colours

Disadvantagescontains artificial sweeteners

"...this along with C-Vit and Robinsons as a child. I took my Ribena to work the next day and was disappointed to say the least. The flavour was a very strong blackcurrant flavour which when I added extra water to became insipid like. I took this as a good excuse to go back to drinking my diet coke. The next week I decide that I will try C-Vit with the same results. I can remember liking this as a child but found the taste very strong again now. The ..." Read review

It Will Be A Refreshing Summer

Advantageslots of flavours, good price, nice appearance

Disadvantagestoo much water makes it horrible

"I have always loved Robinson's juice it has been with me my whole life and they have widened their range of drinks to appeal more to younger children but still the older among us love it. I loved it when Robinson's used to do offers with the drinks and you could save up tokens and get something free or they would do competitions it increases sales but also makes drinking more fun or maybe I am on my own with that thought. The Robinson's bottles ..." Read review

Nearly as popular as orange

AdvantagesGreat taste without using half the bottle

DisadvantagesIt gets used to quickly

"...- not just orange. Robinsons Apple and Blackcurrant has become a real favourite. I must confess to trying cheaper supermarket brands but they just don't make the grade, no taste and very weak. The taste of Robinsons Apple and Blackcurrant is excellent. It really does taste of apple and blackcurrant, more blackcurrant than apple I think.. Also you don't need to use half the bottle to get a good taste. Only a little in the bottom of a tumbler gives ..." Read review

Sweet and refreshing

AdvantagesLight and refreshing

DisadvantagesCan be expensive if you have kids are drink lots of it

"I buy robinsons squash usually when they are on offer in asda, two 1 litre bottles for £1.50. They come in so many different flavours, I love the blackcurrant and apple one, it is very fruity, sweet and refreshing. There is also strawberry and kiwi, peach, pear, orange and summer fruits flavour. I cannot taste the difference between the no added sugar and one with sugar so I always go for the no added sugar one. I like mine to be very weak as ..." Read review

BLACKCURRANT and bitter taste.

AdvantagesContains vitamins and real fruit juice

DisadvantagesSlightly bitter taste, and needs to be made strone.

"Robinsons Special R Apple and Blackcurrant fruit squash is a concentrated soft drink, which has to be diluted with water to drink. It is somewhat dissapointing compared to the other flavours in the Robinsons range, which include orange, lemon, summer fruits, cherry and so on. The blackcurrant taste is very distinctive, yet something has gone wrong with the blending of the apple flavouring. When you drink it you kind of get a distorted blackcurrant ..." Read review
