Starting to run out of opening statements, lol. I’m open to suggestions, I kinda like ‘Hello Foodies’ but my quest for variety just like with food makes me want new ways of saying hello from time to time.
So, today’s product I tried for the first time at the Tasteoff Lagos about 2 weeks ago, now here goes.
Wilson’s Lemonade is a purely Nigerian product, it’s really refreshing especially when served cold. I thoroughly enjoyed it on the Tasteoff day, they gave me extras and even sent me 2 cartoons of both flavours for free! Awesome aren’t they? The lemonade which come is two flavours does taste like lemons so you know it’s made with real lemon juice and it isn’t too sweet because cane sugar is used to sweeten it according to it’s label.
Here’s their company bio: Wilson’s Juice Company is an innovative beverage company, refreshing consumers with real-fruit (not-from concentrate) based juice drinks. Led by Wilson’s Old-fashioned lemonade, Nigeria first NAFDAC approved all-natural lemonade juice drink—NAFDAC number B1-6369L, our company’s portfolio also features Wilsons’s Pink Lemonade.
Our Company is geared towards initiatives that promote active and healthy living. Seun and Seyi were both athletes so that’s very important to them. The company is based in otta, Ogun state and started on a small scale by selling lemonade drinks at Covenant University and has expanded to a mid-sized operation where we are now available in select retail stores across several states nationwide; Abuja, Lagos, Kwara, Akwa Ibom, Ogun and Oyo.

Better still, you could order online from Konga.com and have it delivered to you the way mine was.
So, now to the fun stuff.
You can serve the original lemonade in long glass, chilled with a slice of cucumber.
The pink lemonade, made from lemons and our beloved Zobo is simply classic! Serve it in a cocktail or martini glass with a slice of fresh fruits and I tell you no one will guess you served it straight out of a bottle. It has an exotic taste, don’t worry, I love both flavours equally 🙂 .
Now, if you want to totally wow your guests, make them come visiting even when nothing is happening, then add a tablespoon of grenadine syrup gently to the 3/4 full glass of lemonade, the syrup naturally settles at the bottom because it’s thicker and heavier than the lemonade.
Go on, visit a supermarket close to you and pick up a pack of old-fashioned lemonade and pink lemonade or order online from Konga.com/wilsons and impress your guests with this refreshing naturally flavoured drinks!
It can be used to serve guests as is or in a mixture with freshly squeezed juice.
3-11-14 My little fans, after this post was done, a friend and fellow blogger Neker’s Nibs also got to do a review as well. The pictures she took of her kids enjoying the lemonades were so cute I had to add them to the post 😀 .
