Ribena Winter Spice Review
Ribena have brought out a Christmas/Winter Limited Edition squash called Winter Spice that is meant to be drunk warm on a cold Winter’s Day. It definitely has a nice berry spice aroma to it, not strong spice but it is there. The first thing that you notice is that it is very sweet and very berryful almost like youre squashing dozens of blackcurrants on your tongue and of course that depends on how much you dilute the drink, less water gives you a stronger sweetness and blackcurrant flavour and with more water you get a more natural Ribena Christmas spice drink. Its actually OK, I thought it was going to be overwhelming with spices like many other drinks but its not, the mix of flavour is really good especially when you find the right dilution point for your tastes. I do like it as a Festive drink, some of out testers took it home and their kids did enjoy it as well and I think its good hot or cold.
