It is supposed to be 'lemon and coriander flavour'

It's GRIMOLA. It tastes like Lemsip, it's made me gag, I had to sling it! Bleeeeeer!

You do not want to be buying foul flavoured crap. By plain and put your own lemon & corinader o it.

I had a similar experience with some Thai flavoured supernoodles. Synthetic lemongrass taste. Was actually the vilest thing I have ever ingested. It was 8 years ago now and I can still remember very vividly how truly foul they were.

Oooh yes. Waitrose one is fabulous. I was coming on here to defend it if required but no need!
