Crispin Honey Crisp Review

It probably wasn't the smartest idea. That I drink this today. I'm sick. I have a super shitty cold and I realize that drinking will not help me on the road to recovery, but I'm so miserable. I reasoned with myself that this cider has honey, and honey is good for a cold and outstanding for a sore throat.

Plus, don't I deserve a little happiness for my misery? I do.

First, I forget to turn my bottle upside down and swirl. Boo, my first fail.

Next, even though this is delicious, of that I am certain. I'm not entirely certain that I am taking in all the flavors. Smelling I know enhances flavor, and I can't smell anything I'm so stuffed up.

It's sweet, light and crisp. It looks beautiful in my tall Crispin glass.

No, they didn't pay me for this review (but Crispin, you CAN hire me). I had the great luck of meeting a Crispin rep at Costco while shopping with my sister. A four pack (variety) for 13.99 and glass (today only) with my purchase. I am a sucker for commemorative glassware.

I highly recommend this tasty cider, but I must admit I will have to try again as I cannot honestly tell which cider I prefer. I need a non-sick trail to be sure...

  1. That's exactly the kind of logic I would use if I had a cold too. There's honey in it - must be good for you! First, I hope you feel better ASAP and second, that sounds delicious. I love hard apple cider. I want some now.

  2. Yum - I'm going to raid the beer fridge right now and see if we have any cider in there! Feel better soon; you better try Crispins again when you are well to make sure you can stand by your recommendation :)

  3. I LOVE this cider! It's the only one I've liked so much. Didn't know you were supposed to turn it over and swirl before opening. I'll have to try that once I kick MY cold.

    1. So I have to confess, I didn't either. I saw my sister do this I asked why and she said because some collects at bottom and you want to distribute evenly. I remarked that she's so smart, she agreed, laughed and showed me thei.instructions are on the bottle. Glad I'm not the only one that didn't notice.;)
