When it comes to finding a way in which to infuse yourself with energy in the morning, your mind will likely wander to a nice cup of coffee. For many, there is no drink which quite packs the same caffeine punch as coffee. Once considered to be extremely exotic, you will not find it difficult to find a household which doesn’t have a couple of grounds scattered around the place. For those that are looking to enjoy a quick-and-easy drink, look no further than Nescafe’s Dried Instant Coffee. Should you wish to sample a more authentic taste, we would suggest trying Union Coffee’s Roasted Coffee Beans. Whichever route you opt to go down, you can be sure to feel ready for the day ahead. 


If you were to consider what type of beverage epitomises Britain, it is hard to overlook tea as the prime candidate. Studies have suggested that, as a whole, the country consumers around sixty billion cups each-and-every year. Whether you are looking for a nice way to start the day, or are accustomed to taking a tea break from work, you know that you will be able to enjoy a nice light flavour. There are countless types on the market, in order to cater to different personal preferences in regards to strength. From Typhoo to Tetley, PG Tips to Taylors of Harrogate - the list is seemingly endless.


Whilst traditionally children were almost-solely limited to drinking water, times have changed; now, there are a number of tasty alternatives to choose from. Everyone has a sweet tooth, and there is nothing wrong with wanting to indulge a little from time-to-time. If you are trying to remain healthy, it could be that Robinsons No Added Sugar Squash will keep you satisfied. Alternatively, Vimto’s Squash is certain to put a smile on your face with its intense flavour.

Fizzy Drinks

Whether you are young or old, it is important to recognise that there is nothing wrong with wanting to treat yourself once in a while. If you are someone that accepts this to be true, it is likely that you enjoy the occasional fizzy drink. Those who have an acute palette for flavours may wish to experiment with Irn-Bru, created in the Lowlands of Scotland. Alternatively, if you are more of a traditionalist, original Coca Cola could be just what you are after.
