Amazing Discoveries: Apple Cider!

Published January 4, 2011 - 5 Comments

I honestly don’t know if I’d ever tried apple cider in my life.  Maybe as a kid?  I don’t know.  But I’m willing to say that my first experience with hot apple cider took place very recently, and was a very pleasant surprise!  As an adult I had convinced myself that apple cider was simply hot apple juice.  Yeah yeah… I realize now how silly that was.  But I couldn’t convince myself that I wanted to spend money on hot apple juice, even if it did have a few extra spices thrown in.

Well, Tim Horton’s hot apple cider is anything but “hot apple juice”.  I’m still battling a lingering cold, and hot apple cider feels great going down my sore throat!  I find that it’s a tad on the sweet/sticky side, though.  It’s not so much a refreshing drink. 

Now I’m intrigued because I’m told that Starbucks has a caramel apple cider!  I’ve never actually ordered anything at Starbucks before, since I don’t drink coffee.  But now I want to try it! 

One thing that did confuse me a little with the Tim Horton’s apple cider.  I looked at the nutritional information online, and saw that it had zero Vitamin C.  I’m no nutritionist, but don’t apples pack some Vitamin C in them?  What could Tim Horton’s do to reduce it all the way to zero?  Still working on that one…
