Cawston Press Kids’ Blends Review

We were sent samples of the lovely new children’s drink range from Cawston Press, we packed them in our bag on arrival and headed off out for a hike in the woods.  

After slowly breaking our backs carrying the boys when they got tired we needed to stop for a thirst quenching drink, luckily these cartons were quite delicious even for us grownups!  

But to be honest I did not expect any less as we had already favourably reviewed the larger cartons and sparkling bottles from the range, you can refresh your memory of that review here.  Again as with the previous products only apples picked and pressed within 48 hours are used to make these drinks, so only the best for your little scamps.

These would make a lovely addition to lunchboxes and with going back to school literally round the corner now, its time to think about all the essentials ready for their return to school (and our return to sanity!).  Thankfully each of these cartons equates to one of your five fruit a day, so feeling better that I have managed to get some goodness in me today!  I have been slightly negligent on the fruit front myself, so a quick drink is a very easy way to remedy that! 

The cartons meet school-approved standards, using a combination of 75% fruit juice and 25% water, meaning they are not quite as sweet and sickly as juice can sometimes be and more refreshing.  The jury was out on which of the two flavours was most popular in our family, we had the in-laws with us and their foster kids and it was a pretty even divide between the Pear and the Mango flavours.  So give them a try and see which you prefer.

The drinks are being stocked in Sainsbury’s, Waitrose and Ocado, with an RRP of £1.79 for a three-carton pack.
