If You Want 100%, Squeeze It Yourself

My household is brand loyal to a particular orange juice. It’s 100% juice, so you know, it’s better than some concoction of cheaper stuff. Right?

Well…

Turns out that even though my juice is still factually 100% juice, it also happens to be it’s still 100% artificially flavored. All of them are. Gizmodo let me in on the dirty little secret here.

So, it’s not really the specific brand of juice that I crave, it’s just the flavor pack they use that I love so much. <sigh> Why does everything have to be ruined by science?

  1. Now I am really bumming. I have long been a lover of Simply Orange, suckered in by their name, the way the juice visibly “settles” in the plastic carton, and the idea that I was paying more for, well, better juice!

    Now I am hooked on Charlie’s Honest Squeezed Orange Juice based out of Auckland, New Zealand. They state that their only ingredients are “squeezed orange juice and vitamin C”… I will be doing some investigating. Especially since for the first (and likely last) time in my life I have a tree FULL of oranges in my back yard ripe and ready for the picking!

    Thanks for the info. Even if it did break my heart a little…
