For as long as I can recall, Lucozade has been a reliable jolt of energy to either get me functioning or keep me functioning.
I’m having a 330ml can right now and I had to check ingredients before buying.
The issue is that the formula has changed with lower sugar ingredients.
Which is fine for most people without issues, for me, the hit of energy is necessary and it now contains a substance I know I dislike (Aspartame),
I find Aspartame sends me a bit funny and I do make a point of avoiding it, so most ‘low calorie’ or ‘diet’ drinks are off the agenda for me.
So I’m back to a mix of Irn-Bru and coffee and praying that at least some soft drinks will have a decent sugar content in future.
For people with diabetes the point is more serious.
Whilst my need is as an energy lift/boost and I don’t think I’m diabetic, it means a change in habits and in what I’d do.
