    Today I bought two varieties of Fassbrause I found in a supermarket.

    Both are from the same brewery, which is well known in Germany due
    to permanent advertising presence :
    One a Cola-Orange-mixture and one in Holunderbeere https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sambucus taste .

    On the internet they are currently listed here :
    https://krombachers-fassbrause.de/mobile/

    They are sold at around the same price as normal Krombacher Pilsner beer;
    a glass bottle of 0,33 liter at 75 €-cent without pant.

    This is pretty expensive compared to cheapo-lemonade
    sold at around 39 €-cent without pant in 1,5 liters plastic bottles.

    I am not familiar with brand name lemonades like Coca-Cola,
    but I remember having bought 0,33 L cans of Coca-Cola
    recently at a price of 59 €-cent without pant.

    Pant is 25 €-cent for any plastic bottle and also 25 €-cent for
    any metal can.
    Glass bottles vary from 8 €-cent to 15 €-cent in pant value.


    These Fassbrause have many ingredients , and that is why I would not call these "pure" .

    I' ll try to list them , but am lacking the will to lookup correct translation for these :

    1.) Sambucus :
    Water
    Sugar
    Citron juice (2%) from Zitronensaftkonzentrat
    Gerstenmalz [malt]
    Sambucus berry juice (2%) from Holunderbeerensaftkonzentrat
    Kohlensäure ( carbon acid for the bubbles )
    Natural flavour (Natürliches Aroma)
    Hops

    2.) Cola & Orange :
    Water
    Sugar
    Orange juice (3%) from Orangensaftkonzentrat
    Citron juice (1,5%) from Zitronensaftkonzentrat
    Kohlensäure for the bubbling brausenden bubbles
    Concentrated citron extract
    Natural flavour
    Flavour Coffein
    Concentrated orange extract
    Hopped malt
    Colour E 150c
    Anti-oxident Ascorbin Acid
    Stabilizing Johannesbrotkernmehl
    Mk 10:18 What do you call me a good master, no-one is good .

    LOL. Looks like that there are Hartwall Omena limonade on sell in Ebay. Shipping costs just is huge ....

    ''Hartwall Limonadi Omena is one of the market’s most unique and most traditional soft drinks. A closely guarded recipe, originating in Vyborg and dating back to the Interim Peace in the Second World War, gives the product a soft, round and well-balanced flavour, which is almost impossible to imitate. The apple lemonade has a fruity and sweet taste, and a low carbonic acid content.''

    The 1.5 L bottle is sold there for incredible $9.60 / £7.20
    with shipping costs of $29 ..

    The 0.5 L bottle is sold for $5.90 / £4.43
    and shipping costs of $19 ..

    That is MUCH too expensive for some apple lemonade.
    And I do not consider the delivery costs ..


    On the German market 1.50$/1£/1€ would be a maximum discount price for
    a 0.5 L bottle of this Hartwall Apfel Limonade !

    Yup. That guy would ship it from Finland (I guess he is hoping that some Finn who is living abroad would order one).

    Here it costs just a same as Coke, Pepsi, Sprite, Fanta

    root beer, ginger beer, cloudy lemonade. The more old fashioned the better.

    With the exception of proper root extract cola all cola is garbage. Mountain Dew is awful too (though I admit I don't mind Lucozade, only the orange one though)
