View Full Version : Buying Orange squash

08-25-2009, 02:35 AM
Does anyone know if I can get robinsons orange squash in the supermarkets in orlando?

I have to have lots of water as i'm pregnant with twins while i'm out there but hate the taste of water so was not sure if i can get squash out there.

Never looked for it before so not sure if to pack a bottle or not

I think you can buy it in the international section of walmart. If I remember correctly it was very expensive though.

You can buy it - I think it was about $5 per bottle though - if I were you I would take a couple in your suitcase - just wrap them in a towel to stop them from breaking!!!

OR - you could by the Crystal Light powder they sell. Its sugar Free, I get the pink lemonade one and its really nice!

The Crystal light sachets are fantastic for the parks, you can just fill your water bottle in at the water fountaion and add a sachet. My LO only drinks squash and she loves these, there are lots of different flavours! :thumbsup2

Yes we bought it while we were over there, I think we bought 2 bottles for the kids to have over the two weeks. Personally I'd rather spend $10 than risk all the mess if the bottles were to crack or something. :)

Sometimes Publix sell it down the ethnic aisle along with the Heinz Beans and other UK type groceries.
Whilst I didn't actually go shopping for Robinson's I did notice on one of my shopping trips that the Vineland Road Publix had some 'summer fruits' cordial in but the not the Orange, so I assume it's a bit 'hit and miss'.

Always take with me wrap it in bubble wrap then put in black bag tape it up then wrap in towel, if it bursts worst case it will all stay in the black bag !!

Bring some with you if you're prepared to risk sticky orange flavoured clothes for a week - otherwise Publix can sort you out.

thanks for all the replies, think i will visit the supermarket, dont want 15 days of sticky clothes!

I have bought it in Walmart ands Walgreens in the "ethnic" aisle, as my DH can't drink plain water! It was about $6 a bottle, but worth it to save the worry over sugar-free orange flavour clothes!!!!!!

I like the tip about freezing the Capri suns and taking them to the parks.
Can you get something similar in the US?

In Walmart yesterday, the cost was $4.29 a bottle. We always take squash with us in the wine tubes with carrier bags and bubble wrap all around them.

I would definitely try the Crystal Light sachets, you can buy normal ones for a 1.5l bottle of water (usually 5 sachets in a box) or the 'on the go' sachets for 500ml bottles of water, they are soooooooooooo fabulous, i'm addicted to them and have passed my addiction on to others ;)

Lemonade is my favourite, followed closely by pink lemonade, any of the green tea flavours, iced tea, lemon and lime, raspberry, strawberry, fruit punch, there are so many, I think you'd really like them!
