A few weeks ago I wrote the post Marks & Spencer Debuts Private Brand Hard Ciders about the launch of the new hard cider by the English retailer. The post received a good bit of attention including comments in the My Private Brand LinkedIn group by the Private Brand professionals from Marks & Spencer responsible for the new products and they graciously agreed to send me a few samples. Late last week a box arrived from England with 3 bottles of each flavor and a carrying tray. The packaging is distinctly English and distinctly Marks & Spencer, upscale, modern and very cool and even better it’s a great product My favorite is the Cheshire Chocolate Stout which despite its dark color and Guinness-like head is surprisingly light and refreshing with a pleasant chocolate taste.
Thanks Marks & Spencer.
