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!


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..)



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.

    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

    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…

    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!

    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!

    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 🙂

    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
