What Am I? The Random Summer One

Below I’ve listed the key chemicals or elements found in a commonly available  product, which may (or may not) be slightly UK-centric.  All chemicals drawn below are part of the same product.  I’ve drawn the chemical structures of principal components where simple and appropriate; given the E number or CAS number (however tempting Sigma-Aldrich catalogue numbers would be) if no simple chemical structure exists for an additive; and given the chemical formulae or name if neither of the above make sense.  See if you can guess what this is!  If no one gets it within 24 hours, I will post a clue.  If you guess on Twitter (@kjhaxton), please DM your guess so others can play.

  1. Caffeine, citric acid, trisodium citrate, sucrose, vitamin C, a bunch of flavones, and some lactones (34686-71-0 and 18436-37-8). I’m out of ideas!

  2. Citrus and caffeine don’t normally go together, but the one thing I can think of is iced tea. The lactones seem to be implicated in peach flavouring so … peach flavoured lipton iced tea?
