Soft drinks and Fruit juices – price survey

Soft Drinks and fruit juices are often much cheaper in France. This survey will help you find the best value items.

Shopping in France is not just about saving money, as the range and quality of the goods is usually so much better in a French supermarket. For example, we enjoy a French brand of fruit juices called Andros. In London, Sainsbury's "Taste the difference" lemonade made from freshly squeezed lemons, costs 6% more (exchange rate £1 = 1.06 euro) than a similar product in France, yet has 30% less lemon juice and 16% more sugar. In general British products have more fat and sugar in them.

Best Buys (All the best buys); Soft drinks are a good buy for channel shoppers. Savings range from 5 – 53% for popular brands. Not only that but there is a greater range and much more choice with regard to sizes in France. Fruit juice offers a mixed bag. Orange and pineapple juice offered big savings (up to half the United Kingdom price), as did the Tropicana range of branded fruit drinks. Own brand apple and tomato juices were cheaper in England.

CREDIT CARDS – we suggest you ring your credit card company before shopping in France – increased fraud means they are turning down shoppers cards if their spending deviates from the norm. Take your mobile – you can often sort the problem out over the phone.

Notes

Doing surveys and comparing products between countries is often very difficult. Not only do package sizes vary, but content as well sometimes. Special Offers distort prices temporarily. We have used the French sizes as a standard and worked out the English price pro-rata. Where it is impossible to adjust for differences (size of pineapples for example) we list the United Kingdom and French prices. We suggest you print these pages and take them with you as a rough guide. In general, French hypermarket labels are more informative and will show you the price per litre or kilogram as well (United Kingdom prices often just the item price), United Kingdom products come in smaller sizes, and there is less of a choice.

Whilst every care has been taken to ensure the accuracy of these surveys, and Day-tripper.net has carried out considerable in depth research, they should be seen as a guide only and not definitive.
