Lightbulb Best Place to buy Apple Cider

Hey CD,

I was wondering if anyone had a great place to purchase apple cider.

I found it for $4.99 a gallon at Target last night, but I am sure I could find it cheaper. If you know of a place please let me know...

Thanks in advance,
Matt

Have you tried Trader Joe's? I love their products and the prices are usually really good. They have wonderful New England apples so I expect they probably have good apple cider too.

I love hot apple cider, simmer it on low in a crock pot with a cheesecloth sachet of cinnamon sticks, cloves, some orange peel, or whatever spices you want....we had it at Thanksgiving...it was yummy! I think the brand was Zeigler's...it was good.

Great suggestion. I just called TJs and they have the cider for $2.99 for 64 ounces.

FYI: 1 US gallon = 128 US fluid ounces

Any other ideas?

Best cider I've had lately was from the farmers market, but that will set you back more than $5/gallon. I think that it is $6/gallon, but it's worth it.

Sometimes it is better to pay more for a good quality product. In many cases you get what you pay for.

We bought a two gallon jug of apple cider at Wal-Mart for $3.98 and thought it was delicious. This was early November, so not sure if the price has changed at all.

BJ's carries an Apple Cider that I grew up on back in Western NY! They keep it in the walk-in fruit/veg cooler room and I think it 3.99 gal.

I highly recommend!

I second BJ's -- much cheaper than a trip to Upstate NY!
