That stuff is full of sugar though, you might as well give your kid a can of soda.
But soda is acidic so I will go for the sugar content
Neither will do you much good

That's fair enough, I was trying to make the point that in the UK we give our kids squash as it basically flavors water without adding loads of sugar. Buying squash out here isn't a healthy drink to give to your kids.

Robinsons is best from Amazon as it's around $6-8 a bottle down my way, but around $5 up in Maine.

Sometimes though, it appears at the Christmas Tree Shop, last summer they had it for $1 a bottle, but only for the Orange and the Lemon barley waters.

i tried one of those biglots curry sauces the other day, was just as good as Sharwoods. I also picked up some rip off jaffa cakes (strawberry flavoured), they were spot on too (I notice Aldi no longer have their Jaffa Cake copies )

Not enough frozen processed powders in packets is their problem.
