Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Bundaberg Australian Peachee non-alcoholic beverage Confirmed sighting: Bundaberg Australian Peachee non-alcoholic beverage
Posted: 14:29 Mon 26-Sep-2005. Price: 99p/ 340ml bottle. Location: Waitrose, Finchley Road, London. Sub-flavours: Australian Lemon Lime and Bitters. Nutritional unusualness: Slightly higher than usual 12.6g "carbohydrate" (almost certainly sugar) per 100ml.
Snackspot reports: Almost certainly an official import of this Antipodean delicacy, given that it credits "Bundaberg Brewed Drinks UK" on the sticker (plus the unimpeachable reputation of Waitrose of course - I was convinced I saw Kelly Macdonald from out of Trainspotting in there the other day). Anyway, this could be a sweet (but pricey) replacement for the now rarely-seen RAC 124 energy drink (and, I suspect, would go great with vodka or something) - that's if you can stomach the usual "It's always cloudy in a bottle of Peachee - quite unlike the perfect blue skies in Queensland, Australia" space-filling nonsense on the back.

...(Oh and the Lemon Lime and Bitters version isn't bad either, the "Bitters" element giving it a hint of Roses Lime Cordial.) Meanwhile, in slightly clearer carbonates: Independent Retail News anticipates that Sprite 3G will go on sale in October (89p/ 250ml) and contain "glucose, guarana and caffeine from green coffee beans"; while "Matthew" astutely confirmed previous speculation with another story that "the usual Pepsi Max taste has been enhanced with the introduction of ginger and cinnamon" to create a special Christmas Pepsi Max Punch.

Comment: I'll be buggered if i've ever seen this 'delicacy' gracing the shelves or fridges of any of the shops that I frequent here in Sydney. Maybe it is a strictly Queensland imbibement..... in which case I suspect it is foul, knocks several IQ points off and probably makes you talk in a slow drawl as well.

Comment: Their Ginger Beer is the most amazing thing ever. You remember when Ginger Beer was a proper brewed drink and not just water with sugar and flavour added, well this is it so seek it out! Alas I only know of one wee shop in Glasgow that sells it...

Comment: Ok Ok - we also brew ginger beer, and before rushing to try Antipodean offerings - at least try the home brewed offering and come to your own conclusions - Wooff Wooff!

Comment: This is great stuff. Its sold in quite a few farm shops around where I live in Sandwich, Kent. They obtain it from a co called Slurpz -appropriate name for a drinks co!! Peachee is really smooth, love the G beer.
