The company has been great to work with and were more than willing to send me samples. Twice.
After some delays, I received both sample packages!
Slo Drinks is a xantham based thickener, which comes in packets specified for specific drinks including soda, tea, wine, coffee, juice and beer. The packets also have a number 1 or 2, indicating the consistency. 1 is syrup consistency (nectar) and 2 is custard consistency (honey).
Slo Drinks come with a sheet of information that says:
"Slo Drinks flow slowly so they are safer to swallow. To make Slo Drinks, we deposit individual sachets with doses of our thickeners which dissolve quickly and are tasteless.
Our thickener works with alcoholic drinks and only requires mixing with the specified amount of fluid to reach the prescribed consistency Stage 1: Syrup, 2: Custard and make it flow slowly enough for the drinker to cope with.
As a result, you simply add the contents of the relevant sachet into a glass, add a favorite drink and change it into Slo Wine, Slo Cider, Slo Lager, Slo Beer, Slo Bubbly or Slo Mixer.
They will taste the same as ordinary glasses of wine, cider etc., but flow slowly."
I wanted to try these for myself.
The only difficulty I had was the packages are made to add to ml of the fluid. There was no easy conversion to cups (that I found), so I converted as close as possible!
