Today's Review: Tesco's Dr. Fizz


It's not entirely festive, but it's a new drink in time for Christmas, so here we go. This is Tesco's latest addition to their cheap and cheerful carbonated drinks range, which is completely original and doesn't resemble a popular brand name drink.

It's touted as a "fruit flavoured" drink, much like the popular brand name equivalent might be. Not that I can tell exactly which fruits are contained within, but it doesn't taste much like fruit to me. Still, it does have that distinctive taste that a popular brand name soft drink with a doctorate might have, if just a little off. It's quite sickly, quite a bit more syrupy than the popular brand name version might be. But hey, it's under 60p for two litres, so it's not too bad. Just okay really. I'd much prefer a popular brand name version, if it existed. Dr. Paprika or something.

My rating: 3/5

  1. I've always wondered how Tesco can get away with blatantly ripping off these brand names.

    "Dr Fizz"... really? Even the design of the logo and decoration/colour of the bottle mimics Dr Pepper.

    With all these own-brand imitations supermarkets make (Asda, Lidl, and others) their own rip-off products, but why do they never get sued?

    1. I assume they have a team of lawyers that can advise them on the closest they can get to the brand without getting sued.
