Found 27th Jan 2008
At Somerfield

St Helier pear cider 500ml bottle for 84p , so cheaper than IKEA kopparberg and 5% compared to 4.5% offer expires in Feb - the 8th I think found in 2 out of 3 stores visited - so not all Somerfields

also Ginsters cornish pasty for 60p if you don't want to drink the cider on an empty stomach

i find pear cider to be a more pleasant drink where as some apple cider's can range in taste from wine to beer, really worth trying.

good deal by the way, i am going try some of this brand.

I have to say that I always find pear cider tongue-numbingly sweet, but hey, if that's what you like ...

there's an old pear cider thread here

hotukdeals.com/ite…5-/

brings the student cider connoisseurs out of the woodwork


also quite like jacques fruit cider

jacquescider.co.uk

but it's not on offer at the moment - when on offer it is £2.62 for 750ml



Yeah it is quite sweet now you mention it and I think St Helier is more sweet than kopparberg

I quite like this apple cider

but not too keen on Strongbow , Bulmers , Gaymers

The St Heliers is ok - but not full fizz,sort of semi-sparkling.
That,& the Jacques are frequently on offer at Bargain Booze.The St Helier varies,but the Jacques is usually 2 for a fiver when it's on.
Merrydown is often 3 bottles for a fiver,but at the mo is just 2 for £4.
Bucketloads of other specials always on.

the koppeburg stuff is the best IMO, but this is still nice and at that price well worth it.

Thats a good price however it is not a cider. It is a Perry. If my grandad (Somerset cider/perry brewer) was alive today and read that he would have thrown a turnip. :x
