Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: St Clements Squeeze Confirmed sighting: St Clements Squeeze
Posted: 22:19 Mon 04-Jul-2005. Price: 50p-ish. Location: A great sandwich shop in Chester. Sub-flavours: Orange, Apple. Nutritional unusualness: A trace of protein.
"Daniel Thornton" reports: "We all need a Squeeze," says the bottle, but I disagree. This one needs to be poured. Poured right down the drain. "St Clements" branded but AG Barr distributed, it proudly proclaims its healthy credentials - 50% juice, 50% fizzy spring water (and mumble mumble preservatives which surely makes the sum over 100%), unfortunately it tastes thin and watery. Which I suppose it is, but it's also deeply unpleasant, not at all refreshing and made me feel quite ill. It's also available in an apple variety, which I suppose could potentially be better. But I doubt it. You're far better off getting a litre of Smart Price orange juice and a couple of litres of 20p Lemonade. It's cheaper, nicer and you get more. (And the bottle is stupidly tall and thin for a 330ml.)

...This may not have rung "Daniel Thornton's" bells, but the healthy-sounding "fruit juice and mineral water" combo looks certain to resurface elsewhere, whether in the form of Calypso's relaunched "Ice Pop"-style tetrahedral Jubbly Freeze Drinks (in orange, blackcurrant, strawberry, or tropical), or T and T Beverages' h2eauplus - a still spring water apparently laced with everything from dietary fibre, aloe vera extract, artichoke extract and lemon juice, to "added vitamins and minerals which have been specifically formulated to assist the female body".

Comment: h2eauplus?! that's got to be the worst name for a product _ever_, and i like a pun as much as the next snackspotter.

Comment: Jubblys?? When I were a lad we called them jubilies and they left many a school boy with a purple face during the summer.

Comment: some news stories refer to it as just "h2eau", but maybe they added the "plus" to avoid confusion with the 1980s Perrier slogan which used the same (god-awful :) pun: http://www.aber.ac.uk/media/Modules/MC30820/best-british-ads.html

Comment: I remember St Clements drinks in the 80s and they were really nice, especially the tropical one they did in a can.

Quattro was another nice drink out around that time too, anyone remember that one?
