Woodchuck, Hornsby's, et al, are not really cider of ANY type....they are malt beverages - Think Wine Cooler with apple flavoring instead of grape, etc....

when i was in college, i was one of those girls that would NEVER EVER drink beer so i always had hard cider. now that i'm more aware of what's in the cider as far as cals and all that - i've learned to drink beer. ok, that's not the only reason that i drink it but it plays a large role now

I love scrumpy aka hard cider! But I prefer the British or French varieties over the apple juicy American versions. The originals are far superior to the new versions popping up on the shelves of our stores. Woodchuck is too sweet and has a bad aftertaste sort of like spoiled vinegar (IMO), and the other brands made here in the states have the same problem - forced fermentation. The European versions which is allow for time to ferment the cider in a wooden barrel. True Scrumpy can have incredibly high alcohol content. As with all things drink its been corrupted by American Breweries.

I'm not surprised that the hard cider had more calories, but it's so delicious! I'll still pick cider over beer anytime. :-)

It makes sense to me...I'm guessing the cider has more sugars in it and possibly more alcohol. Plus the bottle's a little bit bigger.
