“IT’S THE GREATEST thing I’ve ever drank – I’m literally counting down the days until my next delicious ice-cold can.”

“It’s absolute muck.”

These are the only two responses you’ll get when you mention Orchard Thieves cider. It’s only been around for a couple of years but already we’ve had to ask the question: Which is better, Bulmers or Orchard Thieves?

1. The main point people make about it is that it’s “too sweet”. Well, that’s a not a bad thing for some

4. It’s become public enemy number one in the sesh community

5. Orchard Thieves is basically a meme at this stage

6. For those that drink it, the criticism is rude
