    A drink made with fermented pears used to be called a 'perry' when I was a kid!!

    Amazing what a bit of marketing does.....I'll have a 'Babycham'...:tongue:

    I learned this on Giada De Laurentiis's Everyday Italian show on the FOOD Network that 1/2 sparkling apple cider and 1/2 lager is called a shandy. I don't drink beer. But I think that I would drink it more as a shandy than drinking beer as it is. (I never liked the taste of beer as it is.)

    A shandy in England is half of lemonade: half of beer (either bitter, mild or lager.):rolleyes:

    The drink is a perry. But perry and particularly babycham - the best known perry - are looked upon as the drink of old ladies, which might not be a big market to target. Cider by contrast is something a bloke can drink. I suppose by calling this perry a pear cider they are trying to get away from the old lady image and position it as a man's drink. The bulge in the opening seconds is surely no accident - they are trying to suggest that virile men drink their product.

    Have you ever tasted babycham? Hard to believe anyone ever wants to drink perry. Yuk!

    I went on the BABYCHAM web page. I really was oblivious until my mouse rolled over one of the bottles...and got a really LOUD "pop". Scared a skidmark in my manties. :biggrin1: I turned down my monitors on that site.

    I like pears. The pears here in America are delicious. That is why I figured that Magner's Pear Cider would be. Maybe pears in the UK aren't good.

    Anyway, I never had a BABYCHAM or MAGNER'S. But they sound delicious. It is too bad "blokes" will turn away a drink associated by older women. Sometimes, men drink some really bad stuff though for the sake of manhood. WHAT-ever on that. If the drink is delicious and palatable...I will drink it.
