    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

    thanks

    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!!!

    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'.

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

    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!
