Knudsen Cider and Spice

Knudsen Cider & SpiceEnjoying a delicious cup of warm, spiced, apple cider can take the chill out of autumn–or at least simulate autumn in October for us Bay Area residents. Cider and Spice is guaranteed to get you in the mood for all things October and Halloween. And the scent of it warming on the stove top fills the kitchen with those wonderful memories of mulling spices.

Cider and Spice is an excellent alternative to hot chocolate as an easy way to warm you up on misty mornings–you just open the bottle and pour.
