    Who else is a squash drinker?
    I drink Robinsons no added suger orange all day every day :eek:

    It now comes in double strength - which is great because the bottles are easier to carry and pour.
    The trouble is I haven't quite got it right yet - my drink is always to weak or to strong :(
    It took me 40 years to perfect my squash making skills at this rate I'll be 80 before I get another decent glass of squash :rolleyes:

    *goes to kitchen to check out if the Robinsons squash bottle bought this week on auto-pilot is double strength or not* :eek:

    ETA whew!! its the normal strength. I don't drink it but the kids do ... had visions of them making it to their usual strength ... they go through it fast enough as it is :lol:

    I've been buying the double strength for a while now, only not robinsons. Hubs always insisted on squash being robinsons until he caught me tipping morrisons/asda/sainsburys own into a robinson bottle, I do this with other brands too :D (I shop where the deals are) ;). But whichever brand you buy you do save money. You need to get glasses with ridges around them (mine are from wilkos) that way you can use the ridges as a measure. :D

    LOL - just had images of your kids all hyped up on double strength squash.

    I think it's only the larger bottles that have been made double strength the smaller bottles are still old fashioned single strength.

    I didn't know they even did a double strength one until I read this thread :eek: been buying Robinsons for yonks, shows how much notice I take of certain things.

    Bought the small bottles this week cos they were £1, plus all the big ones had all gone :lol:

    Give the own brand ones a go, sainsburys are the best followed by morrisons, trust me, they'll never know the difference, just do what I do for a couple of months and pour the own brand into the named brand. ;)
