Can I buy Rivella in England?

Anybody got any idea where we can get supplies of Rivella (preferably blue) in the UK? We're addicted, and since we spend half our time in the UK it would be good to get a stash of the stuff

Thanks in advance

Re: Can I buy Rivella in England?

No idea.

But it's a interesting new spin on "Where can I find indispensible Brit/Yank/Oz food item in Switzerland"...

Re: Can I buy Rivella in England?

Why just England?

Try Irn Bru from Scotland. Another local drink for local people.

So much in common: small country, hills, don't like their bigger neighbours, inferiority complex, strange accents...

Re: Can I buy Rivella in England?

I dont think they would drink that foreign muck over there. Or many other places it seems...

"Interestingly, the Anglo-Saxon taste buds seem closely akin to mine. When Rivella launched a multi-million-pound campaign to break into the UK market in 1999, it failed to make waves among the British consumers. It is said that the milk-derived product “disappeared quietly from the shelves of British supermarkets” a year after its fanfare-filled launch."

Ah, you'll have to just buy some milk and a Soda-stream...

Just checked with them and there is a recorded announcement saying that the shop will be opening again. You can register on the site to receive their news letter.

Re: Can I buy Rivella in England?

I tried it once. Didn't really enjoy it. Then I read the ingredients, whereupon I decided I wasn't interested in trying it again.

Re: Can I buy Rivella in England?

Aldi did supply a copy of Rivella for a while but it didn't seem to catch on. I would buy it in the UK occasionally but certainly not by the case.

Re: Can I buy Rivella in England?

mixed together?

I have just been to a presentation with the UK supplier of Rivella. Apparently it hasn't taken off in the UK because British people see milk drinks as something for babies, or something to add to tea...
