Click pic to view comments - International sighting: Schweppes Spirit Lemon and Strawberry International sighting: Schweppes Spirit Lemon and Strawberry
Posted: 20:25 Thu 24-Jul-2008. Price: 49 Euro cents. Location: Carrefour supermarket, Roses, Costa Brava. Sub-flavours: Mandarin and Kiwi; Orange and Grapefruit.
Zeddy reports: I spotted these on holiday when in store for the stinking flanks of dried ham that the Spanish hang from shop ceilings (NOT!!). The Lemon and Strawberry one was very tart but nice, the Mandarin and Kiwi one OK (the kiwi was a tad lost in the flavour) and the Lilt-a-like one was lovely. I incidentally bought a can of Gini [French lemonade] there too. I love the stuff but apparently the Brits don't. The best one was cans of Mountain Dew for 36 Euro cents (I KNOW!!). The missus was doing back flips.

...Slightly closer to home, Zeddy seems to be making do with Sweet Rewards' "99% fat free and gluten free" Jelly'gnite Party Mix from Farmfoods, Hamilton, Scotland, exploding: "These are tasty! The stawberry ones were especially good. Like Haribo Starmix with real fruit flavour. They have real fruit juice in them so we can count them as one of our '5-a-day'. 29p for 200g! What value!"

Back with beverages, Lakeland The Home Of Creative Kitchenware are reviving the Sodastream (again), with new concentrates that include "high levels of fruit juice", "natural flavour" and caffeine-free cola, while first-time spotter "yorkhouse" hasn't been put off by the prospect of "our own whey powder" in Starbucks' Vivanno Nourishing Blends (in Orange Mango Banana or Banana Chocolate, 3.25), noting that they are a "New line of milk-and-banana smoothies launched in Starbucks on Wednesday (in London at least). 157-181 calories depending on variant and they add whey protein and fibre powder. None of the crunchy bits of ice you get in a Frappuccino but left an odd salty aftertaste behind (maybe I should have tried it with an espresso shot). The healthy eating agenda is presumably to blame for this..."
