A drinkable snack that provides all of your 5-a-day? Sounds like magic! Indeed, juice brand Sunmagic is set to launch their Fruit2day range in the UK later this month – which conveniently liquifies your 5-a-day.  Positioned as a ‘healthy snack’ for adults and children who are ‘on the go’, the drink uses a unique manufacturing process to ensure that a piece of fruit is consumed with every mouthful. Two flavours will be available to eat / drink; Mangoes, Peaches & Apples and Raspberries, Grapes & Pears.
