Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Shloer White Grape and Blueberry Confirmed sighting: Shloer White Grape and Blueberry
Posted: 18:49 Mon 16-May-2005. Price: 2.49/ 4x275ml. Location: Asda, Longwell Green. Sub-flavours: White Grape and Exotic Fruits. Nutritional unusualness: None noted.
"Stuart Campbell" reports: Shloer have made some fairly disastrous attempts to broaden their brand recently, but this is more of a back-to-basics move, presumably aimed at the designated-driver market with pub-sized bottles of juice in zany alcopop-style colours. To be honest, your reporter may as well have been wearing a dress at the supermarket checkout when the assistant rang these through. Anyway, these are pretty nice (I think there were other flavours too, but was too embarrassed at the time to make a mental note) - the usual Shloer mix of interesting flavours almost but not quite swamped by grape juice (29%, to 5% blueberry) - so if you're driving everyone else home or just having a "detox month", and the pub's fresh out of rose-petal cordial, this might be the very thing for you.

..."Stuart Campbell" kicks off this week's bonus beverage bonanza - blueberry looks to be big this summer, as the makers of "Pomegreat" have recently launched both "pomegranate and blueberry" (and "pomegranate and raspberry") flavours. And, in other fruity tomfoolery, "Zeddy" reports paying 1 for 5 sachets of German "Mystic Dragon" Capri Sun in Poundland, East Kilbride, Scotland, containing "3% banana, 2% strawberry, and 1% dragon fruit juice".

Comment: Is the "dragon fruit" in the Capri Sun likely to be this new variety of grapefruit, or the pink egg-shaped "dragon fruit" full of tiny black seeds that I once saw on sale in Waitrose?
