New! Improved! "100% Good...

...10% Juice."



That's what's written on this Juice Bowl can.

I nearly choked from laughter when I read this. Guess they're hoping to fool some of the people all of the time. Needless to say, it definitely tasted like 10% "Juice," and 90% of what was left over in the "Bowl."

-Kurt

I laugh at that as well. I can buy a 2 liter bottle of juice, and it will only contain like 5-10% of actual juice.

- if the contents text contains the phrase "Corn Syrup," discard the item immediately...

No kidding, but it didn't matter to me - ended up riding a combination of 20 miles on a '70 Dunelt and a '61 Schwinn Paramount following that drink. The 10 miles on the Paramount were effortless, but the first ride of the two on the steel-rimmed Dunelt with 70psi tires took the wind out of me - and probably burned off a good 500.

Not "that" Dunelt? If so, it's a '65.

Juicy Juice. 100% fruit juice. Though most of it is usually apple, no matter what the flavor.
Northland's Cran-Raspberry. 100% juice.

Any time you see "cocktail" behind "cranberry juice" it's not all juice.

Then, there's nothing like fresh-squeezed OJ. I'm gonna get one of those juicers like they have in those roadside stops in Florida. Those things are awesome. Just toss a few oranges in, and bam! OJ!

It's a '65? How did you find that one out?

Being from Florida, orange juice is the only thing I have generally drank...for the past 15 years or so. Have hit bottled water a bit more then usual in the last year though.

Take care,
