I got 1 pack of 24 a short while ago and I really enjoyed them (and they were good for nursing the hangovers too), the flavour was nice and they dissolved quickly and I thought they were good value for money
I enjoyed them so much so that I ordered the pack of 4 x 24 thinking they would be the same.
They are not.
While they are still "in date" they don't taste the same as the ones I purchased initially. The ones I purchased first had a newer manufacturing date on them and dissolved a lot faster than these older ones.
If you are purchasing them I'd say purchase the 1 pack of 24 because I've purchased the 4 pack of 24s and have been left with some that have 5/6 months left until they expire at a push, and thats like 40 odd drinks worth. So save your money and just buy 1 pack of 24 as and when.
I would send them back to get a refund and but I've already opened one of the packets. These would have got 5* had I not received such a big order only for them to be so much staler than the ones I had initially. Loved the first pack I had but really disappointed that I've ordered a 4 pack and they're not as good.
