English term or phrase:instant drinks
I'm looking for a single word that would include all types of instant beverages like instant drink, instant soup, instant cappuccino, etc. This is to be used in a company portfolio, describing their various activities.
The closest I get is "instants", but I would like to hear if someone could think of something better/more creative.
Explanation: Since these are reconstituted powders to liquid and they are not all strictly drinks, I would use "The/the Instants" with a capital "I" to indicate the whole line. Otherwise, if they were just drinks, I might like the sound of "Quick-Drinks".
This is essentially then what I suggested as well. I don;t think there will be any confusion as Ruth suggested as this term will always be used in context. Thanks. 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
Explanation: ... seems to cover drinks, soups, etc. in a very general sense, although someone else might come up with a better answer.
