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…
