Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Sunny D Summer Fruits Confirmed sighting: Sunny D Summer Fruits
Posted: 15:38 Sun 16-05-2004. Price: 1.08 for 1.5 litres. Location: Morrisons, Norwich. Nutritional unusualness: Orange, lime, grapefruit, mandarin juices used.
"Matthew" reports: So, this replaced the Tropical one. Dammit, WHY? They've had blackcurrant, apple and kiwi, tropical... and all these half decent interesting flavours get replaced. It's less Summer Fruits, and more Orange All Over Again. The other fruits are barely tasteable. So yeah, Sunny D - now with yet another variant of orange in its range. Idiots.

...Sorry, forgot I had this sighting kicking around from a while back - anyway, another disappointed customer there for the controversial, recently sold by Procter and Gamble, violently coloured "fruit drink". Still, on hot days like today, Matthew will soon be able to slake his fructose cravings on the likes of: Panda Fruiti Pops (now "with 10% fruit juice", in Fruit Salad, or Apple and Grape); the newly "sport-capped " Calypso Rapidz (around 59p-69p, in Tropicool Twister and Summer Slipstream); Shloer's Posh Squash (2.49 for 500ml, in White Grape, Strawberry and Black Pepper, and Blueberry and Rosehip); new Peach and Orange flavour Tetley 'T' of Life; or Twining's Wild Cherry Iced Tea. And then brush away that "no added sugar" afterwards with new mint and apple, watermelon or lemon flavoured Refresh, Revive and "Wakey Wakey" Zones Aquafresh toothpaste (1.99 for 75ml tube).

Comment: Any drink that includes vegetable oil in its ingredients...

Comment: oh does it have to be "extra virgin" vegetable oil for you and your posh friends? ;)

Comment: Sunny D strawberry was the best drink ever. Also - Posh Squash, £2.49 for 500ml? TWO-FORTY-NINE? Yeah, good luck with that.

Comment: Sunny D is the coolest thing to have on the drinks holder on your bike (bar a can of Stella)

Comment: "Snackspot" - and 'first cold press' only please.

But seriously, when have you ever tasted a drink (perhaps some squash or homemade lemonade) and thought to yourself "hmm, just the right about of sugar, the correct citrus level, ahh the only thing missing is some spry crisp'n'dry"?

Comment: well, i'm quite happy to consume vegetable oil in other foods, so why not in a drink, especially if it might be good for you?

not sure if I've posted this before, but i've always felt it was a bit daft complaining about "non-milk fat" in ice-creams, which apparently comes from pigs or something. I mean, it's not like the fat in milk isn't secreted directly from cows into it, but apparently there's nothing disgusting about that...

Comment: The milk thing has always confused me. Offer a guest cow's milk in their coffee and you're a good host, offer them cat's milk and suddenly you're a social outcast.

Comment: Do you use that kitten milk whiskas do now? http://www.whiskas.com.au/products/kitten/

Is that actual cat's milk? I want to try some.

Comment: oh tell me about it - otherwise what's the point of keeping all those other mammals round the house?

Comment: American's have an expression 'like trying to herd cats', but I can tell you that's nothing compared to trying to milk one. I have the scars to prove it.

Comment: Those little cartons of milk for cats are really confusing. How are they supposed to get the straws through the little foil-covered hole in the top?

Comment: never have been a fan of Sunny D. very tart, not too good, nothing but sugar... ick

Comment: I love sunny D. I always feel like I am drinking liquid vitamin c. I'm so glad iced tea has really caught on here. Though to be honest I still have my parents send me packets of crystal light. Whenever I serve to people here they cannot believe how good it is and where can they get some. Has anyone tasted the strawberry and pepper flavour shloer? Who comes up with these flavours? Are there people in the world who sprinkle pepper on their strawberries?

Comment: apparently it's something of a delicacy: http://www.snackspot.org.uk/thread.php?story=0311191211sbc

(strawberries and black pepper, I mean)

Comment: I'm returning to my unconfirmed ways...

I had Panta Fruiti pops today in Grape and Apple. It's certainly unique, and the grape overpowers apple. I bought it from Sainsbury's petrol station.

Calypso Rapidz were sold at my school about a 6 months ago. They were just Calypso in a 75p bottle. They were available in Forest Fruits and another flavour.

Comment: I found a new flavour of fruiti pops recently, I believe soon to be released, but it's very hush hush.

Comment: I got Lemon Aquafresh. Should I submit it, as it's not technically a snack?
Posted: 11:10 Fri 03-Sep-2004 by Snackspot # permalink comment
Comment: yeah that'd be ace - perhaps you could address the issue of whether it could conceivably be *used* as a snack?
Posted: 14:39 Fri 03-Sep-2004 by "pocketdynamo" # permalink comment
Comment: Considering the recent trend for sweet/savoury cross-over snack products. I'm thinking vanilla snack-a-jacks here. There is a perfect oppurtunity for the sweet version of cheese and crackers. substitute lemon aquafesh for your boursin and your snack-a-jack or relevant sweet biscuit for your water cracker. I have a few hours free on Sunday so I may experiment. 60946
