Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Unilever Adez Confirmed sighting: Unilever Adez
Posted: 17:28 Fri 21-Jul-2006. Price: 1.69/ litre. Location: Sainsbury's, Finchley Road, London. Sub-flavours: Pineapple and passionfruit (tested); Mango and apricot; Orange and peach. Nutritional unusualness: 4.9g sugars per 100ml; 20% Fruit Juices (from concentrate), Soya Protein Isolate (1.1%), Sweeteners (Acesulfame K, Sucralose).
Snackspot reports: "Surely they must have thought of the different ways this could be pronounced before they embarked on a multi-million pound marketing campaign?", pondered the B3ta newsletter - but, puerile AIDS-related puns aside, maybe they could have also avoided that acrid, bitter flavour that most people associate with artificial sweeteners. So foul I could only just bring myself to finish a glass of it, and that was mainly because there was nothing else in the fridge.

...Anyway, in other milk-like mixtures: Masterfoods are adding a Thick Shake to their Mars drinks range (in addition to the Extra Choc version seen in the top left here); a few London branches of Starbucks recently replaced their Banana Caramel posters with ones for Java Chip Frappuccino (before then changing them back again); while - back with the artificially sweetened - "Mizkitty" found the new Tango Clears at "two for 1.20 or 1.10 each" in United News, Halifax, relating: Orange one is pretty nondescript, standard fizzy orange flavour. Raspberry/ cranberry version is all tasty lovelyness and very addictive - had one bottle and went back and bought all the others in the fridge while they were on special offer.

Comment: oh and Starbucks are also doing a "Strawberry Cup Cake" - "crushed strawberries in a butter icing makes this classic cake a little cup of summer"...

Comment: local Starbucks have told me that Java Chip Frappuccino has been discontinued.

Pity as it was a GREAT flavour, insanely choclatey, though the choc-chips were a little large, making it hard to drink! Also they liked to stick together into huge chocolate rocks by the time you get to the end.

Comment: Adez - tried all varieties as the company were giving out free samples at my local country fair.

Have to say it tastes ODD..fruity but there is a very strange flavour underneath. I assumed it was the soya protein, giving it a soya-milk like taste. not nice.

Comment: I tried Adez today (2for1 at Tesco) and it is indeed foul. It just tastes like Sunny D. Not a good thing. The other carton is going down the sink.

Comment: I've tried Adez and I really like them and so do a bunch of people I know. An odd combination, yes, fruity and refreshing, yes! The name comes from Brazil I think.
