If you're familiar with the earthly paradise that is IKEA's Swedish Food Shop, you'll know about Kopparberg cider. They sell an apple and a pear version.
Last night I found myself in one of J. D. Wetherspoon's fine pubs, where they are currently serving not only apple and pear but blackberry Kopparberg. I couldn't resist and had a bottle of the latter.
It was pink and tasted of Vimto.
4.5% abv Vimto.
I had a look at the Kopparberg website today. Here are the flavours of cider they make:
- Blueberry and lime
- Elderflower and lime
- Raspberry and blackcurrant
- Summer fruits
- Super Cider ICE Blueberry and Lime (turquoise, probably an alcopop)
My God. I may have to camp outside IKEA with a placard until they import more flavours.
