Today’s random find comes to us from Giant Supermarkets! Apple Cider Seltzer is now a thing? It must be, because Giant has it as one of its private label Fall Favorites Limited Edition items.
Nothing says Autumn like being curled up in a bulky sweater, sipping from a mug of…ice cold bubbly seltzer…of the apple cider kind, right? WHO ARE WE KIDDING?!?! Well, at least, it’s not Pumpkin Spice Seltzer, but I’m sure someone is making that a thing as we type! However, someone ventured in making an Apple Cider Fl Seltzer, and it wasn’t that bad.
The fall festive label was certainly eye-catching as I steered away from the Pumpkin Pasta Sauce. Not to mention, the price point being well under $1.00 per bottle made it worth trying and buying 3 bottles. If it was going to be gross, we knew someone who would have loved it anyway. Actually, we didn’t find it gross at all. It was surprisingly delicious.
The seltzer did have a warm cinnamon flavor with hints of apple. These flavored seltzers usually just give the essence, but it felt you could actually taste something reminiscent of apple cider. Maybe minds were playing tricks on us, but I’m tempted to mix this with some actual crisp apple cider or straight up apple juice for a nice fizzy touch.
Hopefully, they carry this flavor into the Holiday season, because it’s quite nice. I only ask that there not be some basic pumpkin spice nonsense hitting my seltzer water anytime soon.
If you haven’t guessed it, one of us is not dealing well with pumpkin spice everything this time of year! HA!
