Home / News & media website / News / Fake News Alert: Mom Didn't Send Non-Alcoholic Cider To School


Phew! An entire online community just breathed a sigh of relief.

A photo that was posted on social media got tongues wagging when a user, @MissGU_ posted a photo of her child's lunchbox with a non-alcoholic cider next to it.

She captioned the photo with "But what did I do wrong mina because I didn't have juice so I gave her a non alcoholic savannah."

There was a lot of backlash from the online community after IOL reported on the story and posted the image. But, a representative from Savanna, as well as a few readers, pointed out that the image has been circulating for a couple of years now, with new memes and posts popping up every now and again.

IOL reports that the original post surfaced in 2020 in response to Savanna releasing its non-alcoholic cider for the sober-curious drinker. Since then, it has spawned a number of memes on Facebook and Twitter.

As part of its launch last year, Savanna highlighted that, even though the cider doesn't contain alcohol, it's still not suitable for anyone under the legal drinking age in South Africa. It also emphasized that it's not for sale to persons under the age of 18.
