Default Boone Farm

A while back I obtained about 50 BF bottles and was reading the ingredient list. They all say apple flavored wine contains no fruit juice. So what do they ferment if there is no fruit juice? Mike

likely sugar, water and nutrient then add in artificial cool-ade type flavors.

Interesting.

Quote:
In some U.S. states, such as Utah, some Boone's Farm products are labeled as malt beverages and not as flavored apple/citrus wine products, as state liquor laws prohibit the sale of wine in grocery and convenience stores.[

Oh my.

My wife will get a KICK out of this one. Boone's used to be her favorite way back at college.

Not even a hint of real ingredients, hilarious! :-P

Do you live in Texas? Looks like it's labeled differently due to different state liquor laws. Texas are the strangest.
