Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Schweppes Winter Blend Lemonade Confirmed sighting: Schweppes Winter Blend Lemonade
Posted: 18:59 Tue 27-Nov-2007. Price: 0.89/ 1.5 litres. Location: Morrisons, Camden. Nutritional unusualness: Contains sweeteners (aspartame, sodium saccharine), 4.2g sugar per 100ml.
Snackspot reports: Well, it doesn't look like we'll be toasting the Christmas season with Relentless Juiced, Fanta Still (in Orange Citrus or Orange Tropical), or Pepsi Raw, but instead you can always raise a glass of this "Warming Aromatic Bitters and Zesty Lime" version of the same company's Summer Punch Lemonade. Even cold, it tastes a bit like Mulled 7-Up, but it's still preferable to (for instance) Non-alcoholic Koppaberg Pear Cider (1.39, Tesco), or the prospect of Hot Dr Pepper - plus, it's got less than half the sugar of most full-strength sodas, rivalled only by the (curiously not-really-advertised) 3.5g sugar/ 100ml of Caffeine Boost Lucozade.

...In rather more alcoholic alternatives: I've only tried the "Sweet Lime" and "Apple" flavours of Cobra Bite (3.74/ 4x 250ml bottles in Tesco, also available in Lemongrass) - Sweet Lime's pretty good (if expensive compared to Becks Green Lemon), and the Apple one's like Snakebite without the (optional) blackcurrant. Speaking of which, Tesco believe that they're "the first retailer to bring mulled cider to the market" (at 2.99/ 75cl), and I'm determined that this is going to be the year when I finally try Marks and Spencer's controversial mulled white wine - most likely by sticking a mug of it in my microwave rather than one of the glamorous scenarios depicted in Marks' TV ads (apparently it's OK to turn up to an office party in your underwear if you're a model of some kind, yet inexplicably not so advisable for the rest of us...)
