    Lucozade changed their recipe last month and cut the sugar content down by two thirds, people got very angry about it because it's always very popular among diabetics for bringing sugar levels up quickly, and because it apparently tastes awful now. Yours may have been from a batch with the new recipe.

    They've reduced the sugar across the board, you'll have to hunt through for bottles specifically with the old sugar content.

    This is assuming that's the issue, what does it say for the nutritional values on the bottle for sugar?
