Ribena

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
I think I'm a Ribenaholic. Those £1 bottles of the ready-to-drink stuff are sooo addictive. I always thought Ribena was a bit c**p, either in cartons, or that big cordial you have to addd water to. But those £1 bottles seem to taste different to Ribena in any other container. They give a real rush to the head when you drink them. I'm starting earlier and earlier now, this morning I had one at 9am!
Do you think they are putting anything funny in them>

    Serious? I don't think it tastes any different.

    I like the Ribena Really Light. It's only like 20-something calories in the big bottle.

    Well you never know from forum to forum. BuzzJack wouldn't even let me discuss the Pussy Cat Dolls, or Scunthorpe...

    This is all beside the point. Ribena rocks. If George Best had been addicted to Ribena instead of alcohol, he'd still be with us today. He would have had no teeth, and may well be diabetic, but he would have at least been alive, to give us the benefit of his views on Dimitar Berbatov.

    If Hitler had just had some Ribena, things would have all turned out different....

    Yep, and it would've been "wish we'd gone for Robinho instead." ;)

    I really don't like the stuff. I always feel sick after drinking Ribena, for some reason. Bloody sugar rush.

    If Ribena makes you feel sick i'd hate to find out what beer does to you..

    Last time I went on a big night out, (which was a while ago, admittedly) it did very little.
