And now, some big questions:

  1. After the recent introduction of quadruple strength, where is there left to go? 8x? or 6x?

  2. The eternal question: what is the deal with barley water?

  3. What’s the most unusual squash flavour you’ve encountered?

  4. Do other countries do squash like the UK?

Got a 3litre vimto from home bargains the other day


Big problem in our household: the massive bottles of Ribena are too big to fit in with all the other dilute bottles in the cupboard so it has to sit on the countertop, creating an uneasy sense of disorder in the kitchen.

don’t drink squash or water





Dunno, never had it

“Raspberry” (does not taste of raspberry)

Big fan. Usually apple & blackcurrant or orange, lemon & pineapple which you don’t see much these days.

Prefer racketball

I’m beginning to understand why you don’t like squash

  • A drink for babies who can’t handle water
  • No, there is a place for both water AND squash in this world

Anyone drinking water is an idiot imho


Robinson’s lemon has been a reassuring constant in my life tbh


I get the little tiny bottles that are like the size of a…tape measure?

Dunno what concentrate they are, like a million?

Diluting juice


Fun fact, the welsh word for squash (the sport) is sboncen. Pronounced sbonken. Very good word to use for this kind of drink.


realised in uni I could make Tesco value vodka palatable by mixing with double strength Robinsons, basically wiped out the alcohol hit while still fucking me up very quickly. Vodka cranberry taken to the logical extreme really

top tip for all my drinkers out there


love the darker fruits but would NEVER have orange in this way, how odd

Squash is such a good juice alternative. I had an image in my mind for a photo of a pink drink with flowers in and ended up using grapefruit squash, it worked so well


The absolute king of squash. Always feel annoyed buying the smallest size if that’s all the shop has.
