  • Amazing, what great legal minds. I think my 5 year old son could have solved this debate for a fraction of the cost. But hang on a minute, where does soup fit into all of this.....?

  • Surely it comes down to the consistency / viscosity of the fluid that determines whether its a beverage or a food?

  • Solid and requires chewing = food
    Liquid form, requiring no chewing = drink, with the obligatory legal exception to the rule being liquidised "food" = food
    Hardly rocket science, but fun nonetheless.

  • Re Amit’s comment - those who understand the litigation process will appreciate this is the second level of appeal and that Counsel will therefore have been instructed years before the Innocent decision.

  • Lucozade is used by my husband for a glucose drink to help keep his blood sugar levels up as he is an insulin dependant diabetic. I should think many diabetics use lucozade as it isst acting, also it was always on the bedside table as a pick me up to gain energy after illness. Lucozade have shot themselves in the foot by producing lucozade sport which is aimed at athletes ect. people like my husband are the ones hard done by as they use it for health purposes.
