With the arrival of autumnal rain showers, I am continuing my series of sunshine-themed products as a sort of protest against summer ending.

If you can't have Mediterranean sunshine, surrounding yourself with jolly summer staples is the next best thing and one of those is lemonade. Pink or cloudy, fresh or sweetened, there's always something deeply cheerful about a glass of lemonade.

Marks & Spencer Sicilian Cloudy Lemonade 750ml

Price ‑€2.59

Price per 100ml ‑ 34C

The ingredients list here is exactly as you would want it to be - short. It includes carbonated water, Sicilian lemon juice, sugar and pulped lemon juice, and is completely devoid of E numbers. The result tastes great.

Per 100mls, you get 41 calories, 0.1g of fat, 9.7g of sugar, and 0.1g of protein.

Rating: 5/5

Price per 100mls ‑ 4C

This is perfect for kids who will love the sweet flavour. Contains Aspartame.

Per 100mls, you get 15 calories, 3.7g of sugar, nil protein and nil fat.

Tesco Old Favourite Pink Lemonade

Two litres

Again, a sweet sparkling fun soft drink that children will love. It also works well for making pretty party cocktails. Also contains Aspartame.

Per 100mls, you get 3 calories, less than 0.1g of fat, 0.3g of sugar and less than 0.1g of protein.
