Not quite as orange in real life. . I was really looking forward to trying this as it looked lovely and ‘fresh’ orangey. It is more like a sparkling squash with a kick than a fresh orange drink. I still liked it although it wasn’t what i was expecting. Good price for the case though.
First came to our attention when eating out. Pleased to see you supplied it when i looked it up.
Not quite as orange in real life. . I was really looking forward to trying this as it looked lovely and ‘fresh’ orangey. It is more like a sparkling squash with a kick than a fresh orange drink. I still liked it although it wasn’t what i was expecting. Good price for the case though. Here are the specifications for the Fentimans Traditional Mandarin and Seville Orange Jigger 275 ml:
- Fermented botanical orange drink with ginger and herbal extracts
- Fentimans fearless fermentations
- Retro soft drink
A refreshing drink with that elusive depth which mainstream ‘fizzy drinks’ never seem to achieve and without any artificial aftertaste. A good orange zing to it with the hint of the ‘botanical ingredients’ (speedwell, juniper, ginger). The fentimans’ range and the presentation of the bottles offers that magic of a bygone era and the anticipation that you are about to enjoy something special. It is probably that overall sense of occasion which makes these feel a treat whereas when i drink mainstream fizzy drinks i am just quenching thirst. The others in the range are well worth a look at for similar reasons and i have tried both the ginger beer and dandelion and burdock, which are equally special.
I love the taste of this drink. It a shame it is no longer available from amazon on the save and subscribe service. I would recommend anyone looking for an orange drink with a difference to try.
Reviews from purchasers :
- Fentimans fizzy juice
- Uses mostly natural sweetness – very low in added sugar
- Not quite as orange in real life.
Rapid delivery and great price.
The best description is to take any standard carton of orange juice and carbonate it using a soda stream machine. Simple i’ve done this before. I put ordinary orange juice into my soda stream machine and that’s the exact result i got. I might have known this would taste something the same.
