I've been after this one since I saw that advert with the two battling Vimtoads, so I guess that can be classed as effective advertising? Anyway, I finally found this in Sainsbury's, and it's a still Vimto drink, but with pineapple, mango and strawberry flavours instead of the norm. Pineapple and mango are my kind of thing, so I was quite looking forward to a more tropical Vimto.
The pineapple is pretty strong, that's the main thing I can say about this. It's a nice enough pineapple I guess, but it's quite overwhelming, and a little too artificially sweet. I know I can't expect pure pineapple juice, but this is just a little off. If the other flavours were in balance it would be alright, but the mango and strawberry are very much in the back seat. There are hints of them here and there, and they were quite nice when I picked them up, but overall this drink isn't all that great. Maybe they should re-mix it up some more.
My rating: 2/5
