Post-Christmas Fun

We sponsored the majority of this years taste test, and like many of the tests there were a lot of grimaces and stuff going down the drain.  These usually start out as such a great idea then half way through we end up thinking "Am I crazy? What was I thinking?!"  
They have come out with a lot more flavors of sparkling ciders.  
What a perfect taste test for the holidays.

 If I recall correctly there were a grand total of 15  flavors.  Mostly it was a race between Martinelli's and R.W. Knudson's, but Welches did have a small showing.

Loreli was a fan of most of the ones she sampled. However the rest of the flavors was a race between which actually tasted least like a candle.  Spiced pumpkin came in dead last on that one.  Seriously, straight up candle juice. 

Pretty much the "winner" was just the original Martinellis Cider and Welches white grape. So if you ever decide to try a funky flavor of sparkling cider, just don't.

  Oh, come on Spencer! It wasn't that bad.

Then the fun was over and we made the kids shovel snow.  
You want presents, you work!

We ran out of shovels so Jack just ate his portion.
