SuperMarket Own Brand Drink

Anyone else drink it?

i know asdas vodka is alright, but my mate has started drinking asdas smart price lager (3%)

i thought it would be awful but it actually wasnt that bad, 88p for 4 cans and 2.70 for 12!

which is a lot cheaper than carling, fosters etc. only loosing 1%.

anyone lol?

You don't state what kind of drink...........so on the fizzy sort, I always buy own-brand pop and juice, it's far cheaper

Re: SuperMarket Own Brand Drink

I buy Tesco's own brand 'Red Bull' called 'Boost' 65p for a litre which will totally get you smashed off your face. Great for long journeys too, as I found out going to watford for my car to be tuned .
