Ribena Minis ‘Less Spills, Less Mess’

Ever since I was a child, I have loved Ribena. The original blackcurrant version is, in fact, the drink I most associate with being young, my mom insisted that it was far better for me than fizzy pop (of course she was correct) and so we always had the cordial, that I seem to remember had a foil top. These days, we usually have Ribena squash in our kitchen cupboards – old habits do die hard it seems.

Last month saw Ribena launch a brand new range. Ribena Minis combine Ribena’s, delicious flavours with a ‘Less Spills, Less Mess’ cap.  The idea is that these are ideal for putting into lunchboxes and packed lunches, either for school, or as part of a picnic, and also that these are bottled drinks that you are not afraid to put into your bag. The bottle will only release liquid once the bottle has been squeezed, so even if the top comes off, you are not going to find your sandwiches ruined, or your bag swimming with liquid, as you would with a normal bottle. Accidents do happen when children are faced with bottles, but these bottles incur a minimal amount of spill and mess.




Ribena Minis currently come in three different flavours; Brilliant Blackcurrant, Oh So Yum Orange and Amazing Apple & Mango. Joe loved the Apple and Mango flavour, whilst I am still partial to the original blackcurrent. The choices all contains real fruit juice and no added sugar so they are also kind to teeth and work towards your five a day, making them a healthy choice as well as a less messy one. In addition, the bottles are easy to close and seal again, so drinks can be put back into bags – they don’t have to be consumed all in one go. This means there is less waste too.



Ribena Minis are such a good idea. Tasty, healthy and with that less spills, less mess cap, they are perfect for packed lunches, winter picnics, comfort hydration breaks and frankly, if you have little ones, they are worth just keeping in the fridge.

  1. Haha my friend reminded me the other day how she always remembers we had Ribena (cordial) on our cupboard! Which is true and we still do although I don’t really drink it much now. This looks good cos I hate bottles that leak!

  2. I love Ribena, it’s my go to when I am poorly, I prefer the full sugar one and blackcurrant but I know that my nephews and nieces like the sugar free versions.

  3. Can you reuse the bottle? It seems like it has a very good quality. I hope I can find it here in the Philippines. I like to bring juice drinks in my bag from time to time. Unfortunately, spills happen and my bag’s items are in danger of being soaked with juice. I like the colors of the bottles too.

  4. Fab! I love Ribena, I still have hot Ribena when I’m sick which my Mum used to do for me when I was a kid. I don’t have kids but I want them in my lunch box

  5. I still love Ribena! It was always such a nightmare in the cartons though, and so bad for staining, especially white school tops!

  6. Finally, they have the bottles! I like the cartons but sometimes they get messy when squished (All parents have been there!)
    I am so buying these for my Ribena fans
