It’s fall and one of my favorites is Starbucks Carmel Apple Cider or whatever the hell they call it these days. It’s the right blend of spices and apple. Trader Joe’s Spiced Cider is loved by many, but I felt the balance of spice was a bit off.
The Pros: 100% juice
The Cons: Some of the spices come through way too strong. Cloves should be respected, that’s the first thing that hits you.
The Verdict: Skip. Get fresh cider. It’s not terrible, but it’s nothing I’d repurchase either.
The nutritional information:
My final thoughts this was such a bummer. I heated up a mug to try it warm. Nope, clove was even stronger than. The glass is still sitting in front of me as I write this and I find that I have no interest in it. The only thing left to do is to see if I can turn this bottle into a drink mixer and booze it up. If I can make it work I’ll post it. Otherwise, walk past this item at Trader Joe’s.
