Sparkling Green Cocktail from Belgium

The colour of green is definitely look refreshing to us as compared to the pink and blue ones of the same brand on the shelf, so we bought a bottle thought it is one of the fruit juice.

We were wrong. It is something similar to those carbonated drinks in the market, hardly or contains no nutritional benefit at all.

The ingredient is just water, sugar, aroma, citric acid, co2, color E122.

If you like sparkling carbonated drink, try this one. It would be good to serve this at the party, it gives a loud "pop" sound just like opening a champaign. Best to be served chilled.

Marigold 0% fat strawberry yogurt drink

I bought a bottle of Marigold 0% fat Strawberry Yogurt Drink this evening. My daughter must have attracted to the cute packaging of the 250ml container in the chiller at the 7-Eleven outlet. Honestly I like the design and the cute handy container too.

I usually make my own yogurt at home but my daughters do not like its sourly taste, since she picked this one I thought it would be nice for her to drink some yogurt.

It says on the packaging that it contains live and active cultures, 0% cholesterol, calcium and fruit juice. It is a delicious fermented milk drink specially created to assist the everyday well being of you and your family.

Packed with the goodness of of Live And Active Cultures and blended together with the taste of fruit juice. It is a delicious and convenient way to get your daily boost of Live And Active Cultures.

The ingredients are water, sugar, milk solids, strawberry concentrate, calcium, and Live Cultures namely, Lactobacillus bulgaricus, Lactobacillus acidophilus & Streptococcus thermophilus. Contains permitted food conditioners, flavouring and colouring.

Nutritional information for the 250ml container as stated are:
  • Energy : 118kcal (493kj)
  • Protein : 1.8g
  • Total Fat : 0g
  • Cholesterol : 0mg
  • Carbohydrate : 25.8g
  • Total sugars : 24.8g
  • Dietary Fiber : 1.8g
  • Sodium : 155mg
  • Calcium : 168mg
My daughter took a few sips and said she doesn't like it probably because it was not chilled, it should be kept refrigerated below 7 degree C. I drank some and left the rest in the fridge . Hope she will drink it when it is cold.

It suppose to be a healthy drink but I find the taste of this drink is a bit artificial, glad that it is light pink in colour and not dark pink like the packaging. It is sold at RM2.80 per container at 7-Eleven.
