Today's Review: Lucozade Pineapple Punch

I said yesterday that I'd keep my eye out for this pineapple Lucozade, and then half an hour later I went out and found it. I didn't make the trip just to look for it, it was purely happy coincidence. Like the Blackcurrant Bliss flavour, it looks like this one is only available wholesale, so I'd check your local corner shop to see if you can get your hands on them. But first I'd better tell you if this one is worth it.

I like a bit of fresh pineapple, hell, I like a bit of tinned pineapple, so this seemed to be right up my alley. For the most part, it's a pretty accurate representation of the fruit. It's not a perfect flavour, sure, but it's a neat new flavour that works quite well combined with the Lucozade to make a pretty refreshing drink. Sometimes the syrupy texture of the drink wins out over the pineapple, but the glucose nature combines pretty well with the fruit to give a good overall experience. Another great addition to the range, I'd suggest hunting down these two new flavours while they're still around.

My rating: 4/5


  1. Got on a "drink the empty sugar calories" path? Lucozade reviews all the time. OK, zero/low kcal one might be wort reviewing, but drinking 400+ kcals from a bottle? I rather eat Krispy Kreme instead :)

    1. I wouldn't call it a path, just an energetic detour. I mean hey, I try new things, and there are three new flavours, so now I'm done. I don't know where you're getting your nutritional information from either, 133 calories in this bottle.

    2. Hmm, "only" 133 kcal. Ok, apologies for the mistake :0 At least now I know. Usually I do not even look at these or just I do not drink my kcals. I got you - "Lucozade challenge" completed. I am currently on my "different doughnut a day challenge" day 69 of 100. :)))
