Fruit Saline since I was a kid.

published

Saline is the only drink I know that quenches your thirst when nothing else will. I have been drinking it for 60 odd years, learned from my wonderful parents who enjoyed it.

Love it but hard to find!

published

Love this product. It is the best effervescent refreshing drink on the market in my opinion. Unfortunately it is extremely hard to find on the shelf. I drove around to all IGA and Foodworks I know and managed to get 4 tins then I went on line and purchased 6 tins interstate and paid the postage because I wanted the product so much. I have asked shops to stock it and they said they would try. wait and see!!

Less refreshment than I expected:

published

After finally tracking this old favorite down at IGA, I discover that the packaging has been significantly downsized to 300g

Best ever liquid refreshment for summer

published

I also am having a hard time locating where to buy this product, which is frustrating because I love it - great for a hot summer day.

Approached Mckenzies in Australia about buying it directly - their response is that they do not sell direct to the public. But it is apparently sold at Foodworks, Spar, IGA (some only - our local IGA does not stock it).

Great Refreshment

published

Very effective in rehydration. Disappointing that it's so hard to find these days. Much better than other sports drinks and less expensive.

375 g to 300 g

published

another company makes a change for profit with out saying a thing ... beer and others... its a refreshing drink ...

Lactic acid buffer

published

I am having a hard time finding stores that stock this great product. Best used to rehydrate and as a lactic acid buffer to reduce cramps and muscle sore as a result of dehydration when working out or execercising. Much preferred option to more expensive highly coloured, sugar and salt solutions.

A Lifetime Of Drinking It

published

Always had this around as long as I can remember ( I'm now 65 ) great pick-me-up hot day drink and I also mix any flavour cordial -400ml in total with 4 teaspoons of wards, let it go flat, and then pour two trays of small ice cubes -- doesn't go rock hard like normal ice cubes and is divine !!!!!

LOVE FRUIT SALINE...

published

Mum Always had it in her kitchen cupboard. We all loved it Anytime.. PLEASE DON'..T stop making it. ! Refreshing Drink .

Great quick fix

published

Great for thirst and if you are felling a little off on those very hot days. Drink quickly while still fizzy to get the best results - I have it after mowing the lawn too as a pick-me-up. I started on it when I was a little kid because my grandmother always kept some in her kitchen up in the Pilliga.

Hard To Find

published

Have been drinking wards saline for many years, find it very refreshing & great on a warm day especially after gardening or working up a sweat. I also love the taste. Have to drink it fast while still bubbling. Always use a dry spoon because if you get it wet the saline goes hard & has to be thrown out. Hard to find now not in Coles or woollies. Can be found at Ita & costs under $5 for 375 gram tin.

Best in it's field

published

I often suffer from BAD indigestion,which progresses into nausea. Often I wake during the night vomiting,so I tried baking soda, which gave some relief but tasted awful. I noticed a tin of Saline (Wards it turned out to be) that my daughter bought as a healthy refreshing fizzy drink for Summer. So I tried it and as well as being a refreshing tasty drink,settled my stomach IMMEDIATELY! I guarantee it really does work m

alkaliser

published

using it in the morning to balance my stomach acids instead of bicarbonate powder only. Love the taste helps me absorb vitamins throughout the day because of its alkalising effect. Better than a straight lemon in hot water and easier to take and prepare. Will continue to use it enthusiastically!
great taste
Careful regarding sugar content.

Very refreshing but not perfect traditional "energy" drink

published

I stumbled across this product in an IGA store while looking for another, similar effervescent powder refreshment drink. This drink is a white powder that must me mixed with a small amount of water (1/2 glass or less) and downed immediately while still fizzing. It's like an energy shot. The sensation of the fizzing, combined with the strong lemon/slightly peachy flavour and the sound of all the bubbles exploding and even the feel of some tiny bubbles bursting on your face make this a full sensory experience and leaves you with a real buzzy charge.
Flavour, action on adding to water
Some people may not like the slight peach taste.
