Baby loves me Yes, yes she does
An ad came up on Twitter today for Carling which said: Carling Cherry Cider. Perfect for a summer evening.
This made me smile, as my first instinct was to laugh.
But, maybe I’m being unfair I thought. So I clicked through to the www.carling.com website to find out about this exciting summer drinking experience.
The first thing I discovered was that Carling are “not the only ones that think our cider is pretty special after picking up the coveted Gold Award in the Cider category at the International Brewing Awards 2013.” REALLY? Ok, I’ll let that slide, but let’s find out more about this Carling Cherry Cider.
I see a link – click
Looking for refreshment of a different flavour? We’ve expanded our Cider range to include new Carling British Cider Cherry.
Like our core Carling British Cider, Cherry is a blend as delicious and refreshing as our No. 1 lager, featuring a refreshingly crisp taste with just a hint of sweetness. And, of course, a beautiful cherry flavour.

That’s it. Alcohol Volume? Percentage of Fruit in the ‘Cider’? Nope. Nadda. Nothing.
Very helpful. Right, maybe I should look on the Molson Coors Direct site instead, as they own Carling.? This site allows you to ‘discover the full Molson Coors range, and our latest unmissable deals online.’. There’s a link to view their ENTIRE drinks range
Go to Cider and … Carling Cider is not there, in ANY form. Has no one told Molson that Carling Cider is part of their drinks range? It would seem not.
So, I’m still none the wiser. And neither is the main Molson Coors website who don’t seem to be aware they make Cider
Maybe Carling Cherry Cider is just bad dream, a bit like Cherry Coke, best forgotten.
