I love a good hard cider.
Blame it on my low alcohol tolerance & general dislike of anguishing that taste too much like alcohol,
but one of my go-to drinks when I’m out is an Angry Orchard.
So on a foray to the local liquor store, I stumbled upon these babies:
Maeloc, a Spanish hard cider that is strawberry flavored.
Honestly, what drew me to it was how stinking cute it was.
It’s like if the store Anthroplogie made beer in store & sold it to cute, suburban housewives, this is what Maeloc is like.
And somehow, it tasted like that too.
When I first opened the bottle, a strong artificial strawberry smell hit me right in the face.
While I won’t say I was 100% put off, I was like, “Wow okay, hey strawberry.”
It has a taste that I can only describe as strawberry medicine, it actually made my mouth feel a little numb (what the hell is in this?”)
but….I liked it?
Honestly, I’d buy it again, they syrupy sweet cider was one of those things I didn’t know I wanted, but totally did.
So yeah, if you’re interested in trying something different, grab yourself a four pack of Maeloc!
Update: I tried to drink one the other day & it had the WORST fake strawberry taste.
It literally has the entire apartment smelling like cough medicine.
So if you do want to try these, make sure you drink them quickly.
