Breaking news, and just in time for summer - America's first ever low calorie craft cider brand launched on June 14th! Oh, happy day!
Ulee's Light Cider launched in Fremont's Schilling's Cider House, and is designed to be heavy on the taste but light on the calories and good for your waistline! Hallelujah. Most ciders weigh in at about 150-250 for 12 ounces, but Ulee's only has 99 calories per 12 ounce serving!
There's nothing worse than enjoying a beverage and then looking at the nutrition facts and thinking, "MAN, I could have had a (insert guilty pleasure snack here) instead!" At least that's where my head is at *shoulder shrug.*
Here's what they are offering:
- Ulee’s Light Cider Dry: light, refreshing with a pleasant apple nose, 4% alcohol, 99 calories per 12 oz.
- Ulee’s Light Cider Citra: citrussy taste, subtle hoppy nose, 4.2% alcohol, 99 calories per 12 oz.
Yaaaay! Any booze news is good news, but this is great news. Drink on, friends!
