How do you like Zobo?  Just heard about it for the first time and wanted to know how popular it is in Nigeria and what is tastes like for those of you that have tried it.
Re: How Popular Is Zobo Drink? by kimba(m): 12:52am On Mar 28, 2006
ive drank Zobo like 3/4 times. I dont know what it was made of, but its like everytime i drank it(usually at a friends house etc) i always ended up in the toilet, so i usually distance myself from Zobo.

But it tastes nice, has many flavors,

Re: How Popular Is Zobo Drink? by hotangel2(f): 5:59am On Mar 28, 2006
OMG>, zobo drink, i miss zobo sooo much. I used to drink it basically everyday. We made it all the time, you get the zobo leaves, sozk it in hot water (before you do that, you make sure you rinse the dry leaves), after soaking, (not for too long), add ginger if you want while soaking, After soaking, use "ase" to take the shaft away from the juice, add flavour (ur kind), and sugar, tie it in nylon, or pour in 'swan water bottle", Omgg, sweetness.

I miss zobo and kunu, and nunu and fura, and all that stuffs. Anyone every tried kunu? Talk about the way to heaven. Try Nunu, and you would be talking abt HEAVEN!. Zobo, is like paradise. When done right of course, with nice flavour. Aww, i miss all that.

Re: How Popular Is Zobo Drink? by wiseguy(m): 1:20pm On Mar 28, 2006
Zobo is a drink I look forward to every sunday. A woman where I worship used to bring it to me every sunday. When I come back home, I put it inside freezer and during the evening I will come out in the garden around the house with my wife and have a wonderful experience. I love that drink so much that my wife had to go and learn how to prepare it and what a nice drink she prepares for our sunday evening
Re: How Popular Is Zobo Drink? by Outkast(f): 3:34pm On Mar 28, 2006
You can actually make the drinks for those who live in the U.S(New-york, cos we have carribean people and they drink the same thing, they just call it sorrel) so you can actually buy the leaves and make them.[/color][color=#990000][/color][color=#990000][/color][color=#990000][color=#990000][/color]
Re: How Popular Is Zobo Drink? by Bisiriyu: 1:20pm On Mar 30, 2006
Zobo is a nice drink and it's easy to prepare as hot angel described it. I dont wash the leaves, i boil the leaves on fire.

In addition to the ingredients she mentioned you can peel pineapple, pound it and soak it in the zobo. Some even wash the back of the pineapple before peeling and soak it with it.

It's really nutritious, try it.
Re: How Popular Is Zobo Drink? by whiteroses(f): 1:30pm On Mar 30, 2006
i use to like zobo and it's nice but i hate it like sh** now because i went to someplace and the stew to amala was Zobo, i started throwing up. the woman has made zobo jucee outta the leaf and she mixed the used leaf with egusi. it was terrible since then i've hated zobo. she was like (eje eran sobo yin see mo pe fitamin ni) but zobo is nice generally. smiley

Re: How Popular Is Zobo Drink? by nikitareal(f): 1:41pm On Jun 16, 2006
zobo is as popular as 2 FACE IDIBIA.it taste nice.somepple mix it wit diff. flavour like pineapple,strawberry.
Re: How Popular Is Zobo Drink? by dominobaby(f): 10:42pm On Jun 16, 2006
Zobo really is a nutritious drink and while preparing u can add different flavours to it. We usualy boil our rather than soak it (h-a's style)

its no longer as popular as it was 4 yrs bk, then people rarely bought softdrinks anymore.

I've never bought it outside, prefer our homemade zobo

@whiteroses, that was one bad experience! 'fitamin' indeed!!
Re: How Popular Is Zobo Drink? by LAHLAXZA(m): 1:24pm On Jun 17, 2006
Zobo is the shyt, my family got introduced to it by a neighbour who came to live in lagos from the north.Ever since then i have been in love with that drink.My mum and my sisters usually made it so i am not quite sure what the whole process is but i know they boil it.I also love Kunu.

Zobo is a local Nigerian drink from the northern part of Nigeria. It looks like chapman and it's made from dry leaves called zobo leaves.

It's really nutritious especially when it's flavoured with fresh pineapple juice.

It depends on where you are. It's a very popular drink all over Nigeria.
Re: How Popular Is Zobo Drink? by Oracle(m): 4:17am On Oct 03, 2006

when we newly moved ot abuja, we went to visit a family freind and they offered us zobo drink, well i drank and for the next two days, i became really close friends with my commode, so i avoid that drink like a plague. now Chapman is the drink, if only i could just get the reciped of chapman drinks that would be great.

Re: How Popular Is Zobo Drink? by katherinae(f): 10:17pm On Dec 01, 2006
You can actually make the drinks for those who live in the U.S(New-york, because we have carribean people and they drink the same thing, they just call it sorrel) so you can actually buy the leaves and make them.


WOW i really really dislike sorrel, i had it once and didnt like it, i had no idea it was the same thing as zobo, clearly not my favourite drink
