Falstaff--Peril

(no subject)

I took a trip to the big Tesco on Kennington Lane today. (It turned into a much longer trip than planned, since I got on the wrong bus and then took a few wrong turns on foot when I "recognized" certain landmarks—at least I got some exercise out of the deal!)

I purchased a couple of bottle of "Orange, lemon & pineapple squash Contains 10% fruit no added sugar" mostly because I wanted the two 1-litre bottles. Ohmygosh, this stuff is nasty! Way too sweet! I drank almost half, then topped off the bottle with water. Then I drank half of that and topped it off again. At 25% dilution, it still tastes as sweet as if I'd just opened it! I wonder when the overpowering sweetness will diminish.
