RIBENA: AAHhhhh…It Makes My Day


My family simply loves blackcurrant drinks. RIBENA blackcurrant and glucose juice cordial is definitely one of the few beverages that BONDS my family.



Most interestingly, I spotted both Papa and son producing the same sound of “Aahhhhhh….” as soon as they start taking a sip. Same reaction, same sense of satisfaction, unaware that each other is producing the same sound at different parts of the day:) It’s like “It makes my day!”

I usually add 1 cup of RIBENA concentrate to 1.2 litre of room temperature water and cool it in the fridge.  Then just throw in a few ice cubes before serving and my guys at home will adore me and the RIBENA, of course, for creating a simple and yet thirst quenching and icy cold blackcurrant drinks:)  It is rich in vitamin C but as we know nothing is good if overdosed - so I avoid serving it to our boy everyday in case of the sugar content.



For Darren, who tends to develop cough easily, we do not give him the blackcurrant drinks. But he still has his opportunity to have a close fight with Brendan in chewing up the RIBENA blackcurrant sweets in no time. Of course, Papa and mommy will always reserve our share first before it is snatched up:) It seems that, for us, the sweets have this “keep alert effect” (with its sour flavour and sugar)  in maintaining a safe long distance drive when we drove over to Malaysia.

Papa Ed was telling me that he looks forward to enjoying a glass of RIBENA blackcurrant drinks every evening during dinner. Looks like I can work less hard in perfecting my culinary skill because a glass of RIBENA blackcurrant drinks is my secret in luring the hubby home early everyday.
