Ribena, a staple of every British child's diet. We're big squash fans and usually, Robinson's is our main drink but sometimes you just want the delicious taste of blackcurrants. You can't get blackcurrants here in the US and so we've been educating our US friends on this magnificent little berry. Delicious hot or cold.

When I first visited the UK with my grape juice mad American 3 year old it was the closest thing I could find that she would drink. Six years later she couldn't care less about grape juice any more but Ribena, which fortunately I can get at a nearby specialist grocery store but is much less expensive here, remains a staple of our household. And I had forgotten how much I liked it too.

Ribena was my favorite drink, when I was a child. My Mother would always buy this brand, she knew it was good for me and I loved it. A few years back I fell pregnant with my beautiful daughter. As many pregnant women know, woman have food problems and I cannot forget I could not even drink water. I was lucky to find a bottle of Ribena in a shop very far from where I live and so I was able to keep fluids down. I could not find Ribena for my children and me, but thanks to the British Corner Shop, my childhood memories came back and now I am able to give these memories to my children too.

As a child we always had Ribena in the house, on cold days we would have it mixed with hot water. In the summer we had it chilled or made into home made ice lollies. The rich blackcurrant taste just can't be beat!. I like mine a little stronger and am pleased that I shall also be able to purchase it from your company at a better price. If you like black currants you should treat yourself to a bottle of Ribena.

What more can one say to a cordial that is still on the market since 1938!

Absolutely delicious, both cold or hot on a freezing rainy and dreary day!

My kids love putting Ribena in ice trays and making ice cubes with them. When we can get hold of the thin popsicle sticks that they use for lollipops, they put those in when it is halfway frozen and eat them like ice lollies.

A taste of my childhood that is readily accessible again via British Corner Shop! I admit that Ribena is a guilty pleasure of mine, it is a lovely squash drink that can be mixed to ones taste by adding less or more of the syrup.

I appreciate the fact that the manufacturers do not seem to have made any changes to the original recipe that I remember from many years ago!

Ribena Blackcurrant is a really refreshing drink that will provide you with lots of important vitamins. While this is a drink that can be enjoyed year around, it is always a treat to have a glass of it on a hot summer day.

Also I view this as a healthier choice compared to other squash drinks.

A fantastic blackcurrant drink! Definitely beats the ready to drink version; maybe just because I like these drinks a little stronger..

Worth the price! Compared to Robinsons Apple & Blackcurrant I think this has a deeper, sweeter taste and it's a great drink to start the day with.

If you've not had it before; take the risk and order it!

Here she is, the best squash/cordial on the market. In my opinion, nothing beats the flavour of Ribena, and no other kind is as nice as the original. The ready made kind tastes wishy washy, and I don't exaggerate with the quantity of Ribena that I use in my squash. It's fantastic with rum too.

Ribena blackcurrant is a great squash/ cordial, made with real ingredients. You can really taste the difference with other supermarkets own brands or even some bigger brand. It is great for kids as substitute for fizzy drinks which can be very unhealthy and fake tasting. The best on the market for my family and I.

This is the best drink ever. No one has ever made a cordial that has come anywhere near the quality or fruitfulness of Ribena. Diluted as a long drink for the children it was a special treat. Added neat to a tot of dark rum it is pure heaven. Timeless quality.

This is the thing I miss most from home, and it's so hard to find over in the US. It's amazing any way you make it, and everyone has different ways they enjoy it, I think the best way is ice cold. The best one out there, the others just are not as good.

We love Ribena and life would definitely be a sadder place without it. The cheaper alternatives are nowhere near as good - this is certainly one of those products where 'brand name is best'. I also like that it's up to you how much syrup you put in a glass and therefore how much sugar you're getting. Cold, warm, or hot - wonderful!

Love it.

I grew up drinking Ribena and in my opinion it is still the best squash on the market today. Ribena has that rich syrup like quality, which stands it apart as a high quality drink when compared to some cheaper alternatives, which I think can sometimes taste a bit acerbic or manufactured. Ribena is the best!
