Advantages Rich in Vitamin C; tastes indulgent; uplifts your spirit and makes you feel happy!
Disadvantages Expensive; not pure juice; too much added sugar.
Of course, water is the best fluid, but for people like me who don't find water interesting, fruit juices and fruit juice drinks can help maintain my daily allowance and help keep me hydrated. Fruit juices can be drunk as a part of our 8 glasses of daily fluids and can be used as a portion of our "5-a-day" fruits and vegetables. Do beware that some juices (and juice drinks) contain too much sugar - they may be very high in calories, or, similarly, not suitable for diabetic people. Please spend a minute or two and read the nutritional information on the packaging before buying if you need to reduce sugar intake.Many of us have heard about the Suncrest Company and their specialty (which is tropical and exotic drinks). However, what do you know about this exotic kind of drink? Do you really know much? Few people understand about these drinks, or especially about the fruits from which they are made; particularly when they are quite new to the UK. To review this product, I am asking, "So what is it that is different about this drink? What is this fruit of which is it made? Does it appear to be worth giving it a try? Is there any other use of it rather than just drinking it?"
All will be revealed soon; hopefully I can give you as much information as I can to assist your consumer choice, depending on your personal choices and preferences.
Before reviewing the drink, I believe we should first be introduced to the main ingredient: the Lychee. Where does it come from? What about the appearance and the taste of the fruit?I first saw this fruit in an oriental food shop. I liked it instantly - maybe because of the colour or the shape. I picked up one and smelled it, as I like to use my sense of smell in picking up things not only food! And when I tried it, I said, "yes!" to it. It can be found fresh, or peeled and frozen, or even in tins (you will discover the taste is a lot different from the fresh fruit to tinned in syrup).
Lychee, also known as Litchi, originally came from China. It is a woody tree, about 18-20m in height; it was, and still is, an important part of Chinese culture and diet. It was THE FRUIT for romance and passion due to the shape, colour and smell of the fruit. It used to be eaten for religious and health reasons, and is also known as the king fruit. It remained for years as only Chinese fruits but someone managed to grow it in so many countries over the world: it became very popular in Asia and the Far East but still the Chinese fruit has its unique taste and smell. A little expensive, like many exotic fruits, it is still well worth purchasing. The Lychee is very rich in vitamin C, good for defeating colds as well.
The shape and colour varies depending on the origin but mainly it is a small oval shaped, brightly dark pink to red with a thin crisp slightly rough surface that will break off and the fragrance itself is sweet enough to eat - a bit like a rosy smell - very irresistible.
