A SPECIAL edition of Lucozade has been released – Grafruitti.
Judging by the labelling, this is a drink that will aspire to the youth with a graffiti styling and with the name being an amalgamation of this and presumably tutti frutti. Either way, this beverage is a mixed fruit flavour drink that is ‘powered’ by glucose.
There’s always a bit of a stigma surrounding energy drinks. They’re manufactured as performance enhancing drinks geared for athletes to prolong their stamina. But they don’t come across as very good for you, especially when they are guzzled by children who aren’t doing exercise for the amount of time a Lucozade might warrant.
Regardless of this, and as this blog is about reviewing the foodstuff itself, what is it like? In all honesty, it could easily be fizzy Vimto. There’s not a lot of difference between the two in terms of flavour, so if you’re a fan of fizzy Vimto then you’ll like this. The only real difference between the two is that Grafruitti tastes a lot more sugary, as it is fuelled by glucose. If you are drinking Lucozade in the way that it is meant to be drank and you like fizzy Vimto, you will definitely enjoy this. If you’re not really drinking Lucozade for the athletic purposes, you may just as well stick with fizzy Vimto. But both are very nice.
