Ribena Plus REVIEW

Last week, I was lucky to be offered some Ribena Plus samples for Family Howe to taste and review.

Tristan adores the Ribena Plus Red Apple flavour saying it's "delicious" and "tastes like apples".

Reading the label, it's 44% juice (pre-dilution). The Ribena Plus Summer Fruit option is 40%. The original Ribena in Blackcurrant squash is 22% juice, and original Ribena in No Added Sugar Blackcurrant squash has 35% juice.

These Plus varieties are a little different to the original/standard Ribena - after opening, they need to be stored in the fridge and drunk within 21 days. And, they are diluted differently, consisting of a 50ml Ribena Plus to 200ml water (1:4 ratio). This means you'll get through a bottle quicker but it seems to bridge the gap between squash and fruit juice.

Family Howe are thoroughly enjoying them, especially almost-4 year old Tristan, who is requesting the red apple juice every meal time! And Daddy Howe is drinking his way through Summer Fruit - which makes a lovely change from tea all the time!
