Vege Drink / Bovril stuff

  1. Someone on here told me about an alternative that's much cheaper - well i did my research and printed the details of it off and took them to my LLC today - she says she's never heard of it before but checked the ingredients and they are all the same - the packets are 14 for £6 - this stuff is called Marigold Vegetable Bullion - you can get it from tesco @ just £1.55 a tub and use just a teaspoon full per cup! xx

    Madly enough I actually had a pot of the Marigold stuff in my cupboard which I'd bought to use in a recipe about a month ago but not bothered with it since. I've tried it as a drink and I really love it! I'm sure it's going to help me out if I get peckish. x
  4. Haha - well i really liked the sachets my LLC gave me - she gave us all 2 to try! i reckon i'm gonna find em a great help too - the fruits of the forest water additive is really helping me get it down too!!!

    Yep I got that one this week - I'm trying not to use it 'too' much but I do like it a lot. It's nice to have different tastes isn't it? xx
  6. Yeah - i reckon it'd be much tougher without them - i mean i like water but there's a limit isn't there! I'm alternating between still and sparkling for a bit of variety too! x

    does the marigold stuff taste exactly the same? Im not a massive fan of the LL ones but I would try the marigold if it was a bit different.

    Also is there a reason why people on her say that they use retardex?

    Not a clue what retardex is.

    The Marigold stuff is really tasty tho - have you ever had a hot bovril drink or oxo?? It's like a lighter version of that really, but vegetable stock.

    Mollysmum, the full salt marigold is very similiar to the LL savoury drinks but if you want a little different, the low salt marigold does taste different. I like them both. Hope you find one you like :) I've used the marigold all the way through my weight loss and it's been a godsend :)
