We are so used to various foods being bigged up as the next superfood, packed with nutritious goodies to keep us zingingly alive, that it has become difficult to be surprised by the next pick. One day its pomegranates, next its mandarins, then mackerel swims into view all to be washed down by a lovely bottle of cider.
What’s that you say? Cider is not a superfood. OH YES IT IS. And when you think about it, the tramps that live off of White Lightning and Ace do seem to linger longer than those wot sup Tennants Super (as proved by an unofficial, anecdotal survey I just made up). So will the Magners generation live forever? No, just cos a food is good for you, doesn’t mean you won’t lose all your teeth in a scrumpy fuelled fight!
