This morning I was running through Heathrow Terminal 5 for a flight to Berlin when I caught sight of an almond drink in Pret a Manger.
The sandwich retailer has made a few useful additions for vegans, so I thought it safe to give these two new drinks a go. I should have just kept heading to the boarding area.
At £2.99 a bottle, I expected these almond drinks to be of a high quality. In reality, I would have settled for tasty.
The banana and cashew variety was not completely unpleasant, but I expected a much more enjoyable drinking experience. The cocoa and date was undrinkable, in my opinion. Perhaps there are plenty of people out there looking for bitter and watery chocolate drinks, but I’m not one of them.
I drank one because it was just OK and threw the other out. Not the best £6 I’ve ever spent. Pret a Manger should stick to vegan sandwiches, in my opinion.
Have you tried these Pret almond drinks? What did you think?
