FRUITY VINEGAR! a.k.a Cider Vinegar is made from cider or fruit must**, and has a brownish-gold color. It often is sold unfiltered and unpasteurized with the mother of vinegar present, as a natural product. Because of its acidity, cider vinegar may be very harsh, even burning, to the throat. If taken straight, (as opposed to used in cooking), it can be diluted (e.g., with fruit juice or water) before drinking.It is also sometimes sweetened with sugar or honey. There have been reports of acid chemical burns of the throat from apple cider vinegar tablets, but doubt remains as to whether cider vinegar was in fact an ingredient in the evaluated products. The pH of cider vinegar is typically between pH 4.25 and 5.00 if undiluted.
*Must (from the Latin vinum mustum, “young wine”) is freshly pressed fruit juice that contains the skins, seeds, and stems of the fruit.
So which flavour did i grabbed?? PLENTY!!!
APPLE, of course!! It’s the all times favourite!! Also the Lemon, which is a new flavour to me! Hope it’s not toooo sour!! Lastly, specially for my dad, a Mulberry flavour!!
As i was reading the health benefits written on the site i thot it will be good to share! I know many of you may have already knew this but for the benefits of those who don’t i think it is still nice to be able to just recap! =P

Sounds not bad already right??? hahahaa *mouth watering*
Here is my ready pack drink! Comes in 4 flavours with 6 packet each! So far i’ve tried Peach, Grape & Plum! i think grape is niceeee – no wonder its ‘voted’ the ladies favourite!! So nice until i splash my face with it (minor accident happen while drinking~ >_< children dun talk while drinking!!)! Momo (peach) is abit tooo sweet till i had to add more water! Plum is interesting.. it taste really refreshing! Now i’m all excited to try my apple cider!!
Now back date abit!! just few weeks ago! i bought this vinegar (another brand) too!!
This taste GOOD too! especially the pomegranate one!!! The other flavour i bought is black raspberry, it taste slightly more sourish, but my mom loves it..
The funny thing here is.. the above pic shows 900ml! but i think its less than that cuz the bottle seems smaller then my 600ml (Shih Chuan) one!! ……………Of cuz it seems smaller!! HAHAHA in actual fact, i only bought the 500ml one! chey~~~
Im now tempted to buy the Red Ginseng & Cherry flavour!!! They are having time sales NOW!!!! SEEE!!
I know i have weird taste.. but since i’ve already tried pomegranate.. no harm trying other UNIQUE flavours right?? heee!! >_< but this two flavours only comes in 900ml! i think i need to look for sponsorship already!! MOMMY~~~~~ hahaha!!
Also i realise one thing most seller will emphasize when promoting their vinegar!!
SLIMMING effect!! i think most girls really like this wonderful effect.. when u mention whitening, slimming, increase metabolism, i think most girls will stop and listen to you! hahaha.. well, i dono how applicable it is for them but for mi whitening & increase metabolism is definitely a “what did you juz say?” stop point for mi! stop point = stop and listen, stop and buy!!! geez!!
Well in conclusion, i just wana say.. vinegar is good but dun rely on it to slim down.. exercise is still the best way to it!
