Captain Cooks – Smooth and Spiced Rum Review

Sometimes you can only afford a cheaper option when it comes to rum, buying the cheaper rums is sometimes a gamble on it’s quality but was I left surprised by Lidl’s own rum Captain Cooks Original Smooth and Spiced.

The back of the bottle has a small message which is very basic, its reads ” This amber – coloured Captain Cooks Spiced Rum Based Spirit Drink captivates with its mild spices and its incomparable flavour. It provides an excellent base for mixed drinks.”

The Rum is 35 percent alcohol and it comes in a fully recyclable bottle.

The spirit gives of a very strong artificial vanilla smell, it has a slight chemical taste to it but is pleasant enough to be enjoyed as a cheaper alternative to the more expensive premium rums.

Mixed this rum is very good, the artificial chemical flavour is gone and you have a lovely sweet vanilla flavour which works extremely well with a cola but should be just as good with a beverage of your choice. This is far from some of the best rum I have ever had but if I ever am in need of a cheap rum to bring to a party this may be the one that I choose and if you would like to try this rum you can find it in the alcohol isle of your local Lidl.

Grape Kool Aid Review


image 4


Grape Kool Aid is just one of the many Kool Aid flavours available, for those of you who don’t know Kool Aid is a very popular American Beverage and is something that I have always wanted to try.




Citric Acid, Maltodextrin, Calcium Phosphate, Salt, Artificial Flavour, Ascorbic Acid(Vitamin C), Red 40, Blue 1

From looking at the ingredients Kool Aid Grape isn’t actually that bad for you, the only things I would really worry about if I was giving this to child would be the artificial flavouring and the Red and Blue dyes that are used.

Kool Aid Grape is not very nutritional it has zero fat, carbs and proteins but it does contain 10 percent Vitamin C and 10mg of sodium, on the bright side it is caffeine free.

I was very surprised to read that there are no calories in the beverage, I’m not sure if the ingredients and nutritional facts are the same for each flavour and I probably wont know until I try another type of Kool Aid.

Making Kool Aid is really easy, the instructions say to pour the entire sachet into a pitcher, add one cup of sugar, add a gallon (four pints) of cold water and stir, however it is possible to make one single pint size glass and that is what I did.

The first task is to add the Kool Aid, I added about 1 and half tea spoons

Next add 1 table spoon of white sugar

finally fill your glass with water and stir the mixture.

Grape Kool Aid is a dark purple coloured mixture that was so dark that I could not see through it at all, the taste didn’t surprise me the best way I can describe it is that it tasted like grape flavoured sherbet mixed with water, the grape flavour is very artificial and a little sour to the taste

I would have preferred real grape flavour as I’m not a big fan of artificial grape but if you like the artificial stuff and are a big fan of grape sherbet then I am sure you will love Grape Kool Aid.

Looking forward to the next flavour
