I bought my sweetheart some "healthy" orange juice the other day. You say, why are you calling it "healthy" orange juice, Andrea?
Isn't all orange juice healthy?

Well, I thought so!!! But recently I've been noticing some "even better for you" orange juice in the store labeled "LIGHT AND HEALTHY!!!" So, I decided to get it for us, since we deserve to be light and healthy, right?
Tell me if you see anything wrong with this carton?????

Let's look a bit closer, shall we?

Can anyone tell me what the heck ORANGE JUICE BEVERAGE is?

Let me tell you what it isn't.


It might be made from oranges because clearly there were a few "pulp-esque" strands floating in this "beverage".

The carton says it's 100% pasteurized orange juice, but I'm not sure I believe it! Tropicana goes on to note, vitamin D3 is in this wonderfully watered down drinkable liquid. They make themselves especially clear by saying vitamin D3 is NOT found in any other orange juice. I'll tell you what vitamin D3 is.............IT'S GOT TO BE WATER, FOLKS.

Heck Orange Julius from the mall food court contains more JUICE than this "beverage".

Beware of labeling!!!

I like orange juice from orange julius.

Once, while with m'first wife, we stopped at a orange julius drive in and I went up and got two juices, but, being stoned at the time (actually, while I was married the first time, I was ALWAYS stoned) I drank hers before I got back to the car.
I sat down, she looked at me, I looked at her, then I looked down at the two empty containers in my hands....we laughed, I said I would go get her another one.
Got about halfway back to the car before I realized I had done it again. Danged stuff is good!
So, I went back again, but I'll be darned if I didn't do it again.
By now she was pretty disgusted and ent and got her own.

She didn't really think it was so funny when I asked her to bring me back one, too.....

Orange Julius at Home?

Should we have an OJ party? We could all bring different kinds of orange juice drinks.

Shoot! Orange Juice gives me some WICKED heartburn.

Me too! I can't keep it down.

I can handle a nice Mimosa in the morning, though. Dang, the first time I ever had those was at the beauty shop the morning of my wedding. That was a nice wonder I wasn't nervous.

I love the artificial orange flavor. Tang! Yum! Tang is so good! Or, at least it was when I was 9. Do they still make that stuff?! I'll have to look next time I hit the K-Rogers.

How about that dreamsicle too?! T.G.I. Friday's makes an awesome frozen dreamsicle drink mix.
