    Can you get these in the UK???. They are sachets of sugar free powdered drinks made up with 1.5 litres of water. Lots of interesting flavours such as pear, elderberry,mandarin and the usual pineapple, orange, apple etc
    Packet says Bolero swiss formula sugar free instant fruit flavoured drink. 100% daily value vitamin C.
    made by (think eurostok Ltd Bulgaria) cost the equivalent to 14p per packet.
    I love them, keep me going all day

    I've personally never seen that particular brand, but will look around in shops for it.

    I've never seen them either. There are plenty of shops around now that specialise in Polish produce maybe you might get lucky in there (thinking it is that part of the world). You tried ordering them online? I am yet to find something that you can't order online lol

    I just googled Bolero sugar free and one of the first things that popped up was a link to an eBay page. Unfortunately the auction was ended, and the sellers haven't got anything else listed at the moment. But I will keep an eye out for it.

    Thanks for that - I think they are the same people who were selling on eBay.

    I have ordered the pack of one of every flavour - £6.99 with no charge for postage. That's 23 sachets, each making 1.5 litres. That's just over 30p a sachet, working out at just over 20p a litre.

    I will let you know when it arrives and what the different flavours are like.

    Thanks very much for that link.

    I promised I would let you know what I thought of the Bolero drinks. As you know, I ordered the mixed set. They arrived very quickly and there were no problems with ordering or delivery.

    So far I have tried the following

    Watermelon - OK, but wouldn't have it again
    Raspberry - too sweet, threw it out
    Pear - absolutely delicious
    Multivitamin mixed fruit - really lovely
    I have the ginger one chilling in the fridge right now. Had a quick taste and it seems fine, but it is not really cold enough yet (like my drinks really cold).

    So I will definitely be ordering the multivitamin and pear varieties again.
    The powders come in small sachets which you put into a container with 1.5 litres of water and shake. They mix up very easily with no powdery residue.

    All in all, a success, and I really do thank you for the recommendation.

    looking forward to getting my drinks, have ordered the multi pack and the multi vitiamin ones to start with, thank you so much for bringing something different to us. I have bought their sugarfree caramels, I assume its the same company, the sweets are lovely.

    I too have bought these drinks. Your views are shared by me. I love them. I cannot believe that they taste so good yet only have about 5 calories per glass (no Weight watcher points). I did not see Grapefruit available, but I did see that Blueberry is to be sold by them soon. Mmmmm, can't 'weight':clap:
