Taste is exceptional!
I purchased the Lemon Lime and Bitters flavour. I was very happy to find that mixed with soda water it tastes just like the drinks you purchase at clubs and pubs. Will definitely purchase this flavour again and will try the lemon flavour also.
The best that money can buy!
As a type 1 diabetic I am very pleased that Bickford's offers a genuine diet cordial, that is, with natural sweeteners and no sugar. Because the labels are so similar I mistakenly bought the "sugar" version. Could you please consider using a taller label with a prominent DIET logo across the top. Thank you.

Misleading Labeling - Bring back the diet cordials
Can't believe what Bickfords have done, added sugar to the diet drinks, 6 x the calories and hardly changed the labels. We are former Bickfords drinkers too. I suggest everyone who agrees goes to their facebook page to register their displeasure.
Please bring back Diet Lemon, Diet Lemon / Lime & Bitters and Diet Lime
We have stopped buying Bickfords since they stopped making the diet range. Looks like we're not the only ones. Who was the genius who thought fixing something that wasn't broken was a good idea. And then removing a successful product range. This is no way to run a railroad (or a cordial drink company). Please bring back the diet range.

Light lime cordial - a major disappointment
The new light lime is very disappointing, less lime flavour, far too sweet, and contains sugar just when we are all trying to reduce our sugar intake. What an own goal, please bring back diet lime - it was really very good.
August 5th 2019 Update: Diet lime and lemon
Congratulations Bickford for listening.
Just great to have Diet Lime and Diet Lemon once again - you won't be sorry.
No sugar, aftertaste gone and almost no calories, your customers will be very happy.

Misleading labels, terrible outcome for health
Like others, I used to buy the diet lime and diet lemon cordials. I first noticed the difference with the new "light" versions with the caps getting sticky, then I read the label.
I buy diet versions purely because I don't want added sugar. This will be my last purchase unless the diet versions return.
Questions & Answers
I have an unopened bottle of lemon Lime a Bitters which has a use by date of nov 2017
Is it still drinkable?......
I think drinkability could best be judged by the taste. As cordial has no nutritional value (sugar?) what is there to degrade? I love the no added sugar version of Bickford's, as I am a diabetic, but my bottle has a BEST BEFORE DATE not a USE BY DATE. This may give you some comfort, but again let taste be the judge.
What happened to Bickfords Cranberry cordial? It was the best flavour of all their brands.
