There’s (Another) New Hard Seltzer Coming!
Some people think that hard seltzers may seem like just a trend, but one of the top-selling beer brands in the world doesn't think so. Just to be clear, I don't think so either, and my fridge is stocked with my favorite seltzer, Truly, in every flavor at all times.
According to Beverage Daily, the CEO of Corona maker Constellation Brands thinks "seltzers are here to stay," so the beer brand is getting in on the game.
Corona will launch its own hard seltzer this spring. The brand's four flavors will be tropical lime, mango, cherry, and blackberry lime. Each serving will be 90 calories, with zero carbs and zero sugars. They will be 4.5% ABV.
The hard seltzer category is reportedly worth $550 million right now, but expectations are for a worth of $2.5 billion by 2021.
Here's why I love Truly so much and assume why others love seltzers as well: it's easy to drink. You don't feel full like you feel after a cider. It's not full of sugar so you don't have that sugar hangover the next morning. It's low calorie and effortless to drink plus you get a good buzz for a small amount of liquid! My fave.
Also note that my favorite Truly flavor is pomegranate. Just in case you want to try that out.
