Fentimans Rose Lemonade Review. *

Update: Since this was posted, I have since been informed that the packaging had to be like it was, or the bottles would have smashed.
Disclaimer: These four samples were sent to me directly from Fentimans at my own request-I love Rose Lemonade, and I wished to review them. What follows is my honest opinion. 
fullsizeoutput_da Hello-
Now, we all like pretty things, don’t we? (For the sake of this post, I’ll assume we all do.) But look how pretty this Lemonade is! Pink, in a very cute bottle, and it has a rose flavour. What more could anyone possibly want? This is what I usually treat myself to when I feel glum, but I was delighted to be given the chance to review this.
(And before you ask, that is indeed my hand in the photo.)
For this review, I will be looking at packaging, taste, as well as the product itself. Let the review commence!
Packaging: 
Now, I like it when brands make an attempt to be ethical, simply by cutting down on their packaging, and the amount they have. I will admit to being a little bit disappointed with Fentimans; there was four bottles in a massive box. (Emphasis on ‘massive’.) This may have just been because this came as part of my Blogger Mail, but there was a lot of bubble wrap inside. There wasn’t really a need for this; the bottles were unlikely to have arrived damaged, but this risk could have been managed with less packaging.
As you can see, I was really happy to receive this package; four bottles of my favourite drink! (I usually have a bottle when I feel blue..)

Branding: 
I love the colour of this-largely because it’s pink, and as a product, that screams ‘unique’ to me. There’s just something pretty and charming about this product. It makes me feel nostalgic, I guess.
It also has good branding, in the respect that it has a very ‘retro’ feel; it reminds me of the illustrations from Milly Molly Mandy. There was also a similar drink that I use to take fishing as a child. Nostalgia is a good thing, right?
It’s also easy to open-a bonus to clumsy me!
The product itself:
fullsizeoutput_dbI have a lot of Lemonade. As somebody who detests sparkling water-it’s a sensory thing-this only had a slight tinge of this, meaning there was an appropriate amount of fizz. It also tastes nice-like rhubarb and custard sweets, but with less range, and more of a sweet influence. It may not be to everyone’s taste, though-if I can use the analogy of Marmite-but best not spill it over yourself, as wasps will come after you.
Overall, I do love Rose Lemonade, but I would love to see an adjustment made to the packaging. I give this product a rate of fourteen out of fifteen.

    I love the bottles, I would keep them just as ornaments once empty! 😍 x

    I don’t like it when brands over use packaging either – I understand that the glass would be breakable but it’s always way over the top, which is such a waste. It does look really tasty though and I really want to give it a try x

    As a rule, I don’t trust pink lemonade (bad experience with something that tasted like a cross between the most bitter bits of a grapefruit and hand soap). However, you actually made this taste delicious 🙂

    Always feels it’s a hit and miss with rose infused products but we’ve rated this once before and we loved it! So pretty as you say and tastes good too!

    Aw no, so much unnecessary packaging makes me sad too! However, I do love rose lemonade and this brand is one of my favourites! I totally get what you mean about it tasting like rhubarb and custard sweets! Yum!

    I love fentimans! Their dandelion and burdock is my fave, it’s so strong. It’s how D&B should taste. Rose lemonade is actually the only one I haven’t tried yet. I didn’t want to buy it in case it was horrible. But after reading this, I’m feeling the urge to go and buy one right now!
    p.s. I adore your layout!

    This looks and sounds awesome. I love pink lemonade but don’t thing I’ve ever had rose lemonade but it sounds great. I also love the retro look for lemonades.

    I used to love the Milly Molly Mandy books when I was younger, and now you’ve mentioned it, I can totally see what you mean! I’d never heard of this brand before this post, but as a lover of certain rhubarb and custard sweets, I definitely want to give this a try. I absolutely LOVE marmite, so maybe this will go the same way if I do try it? Hmm…

    Ahh I love this stuff – it’s a perfect summer drink 🙂

    It does sound nice! Maybe I’ll have to give it a go to see if I really do like it! X

    Sounds delicious! Great post!

    What a great honest review! I’ve never tried this flavour so will have to give it a go. I like how you didn’t focus just in taste either! Plus I also hate it when they send so much packaging, so unnecessary

    Rose Lemonade is *my favourite drink ever* after tea.
