Don't fark with the Duck!

/... Don't Fark with the Dark? Sure, why not.
//100% Pure Squeezed awful!


Still trying to figure out why Donald Duck brand OJ is so popular with those who do ecstasy.

gnosis301: I much prefer grapefruit juice.


Only freaks like grapefruit juice.

/fellow freak, though I prefer the actual grapefruit over the juice by itself

Article on how your "all-natural" OJ is made.


People need to hear more about this.   They need to know about the chemicals that these poison pushers are putting in our children's juice boxes.  Just what are these chemicals?   As the author clearly states:

I think if a food needs to have synthetic flavors added to it for us to enjoy it, then we ought to question whether or not it's actually good for us and worth eating. It's not so much that I think the flavors are unnaturally engineered chemicals (although sometimes, as with MSG, there is cause for concern). In this post, I'm not questioning the health or merit of added chemicals ("natural" or "synthetic"); I'm questioning the health or merit of so-called foods that are so devoid of flavor or color that we have to add back in chemical flavorings and colors to make them palatable.

He's just asking questions about "so-called foods".  Personally, I won't even eat oranges.  You should see the chemicals they use in those groves and plus they pick them all when they're green and then chemically ripen them with chemicals.

I only eat carrots for breakfast.  Carrots are full of Vitamin A and Vitamin A is good for vision.  I can see really well at night now.  I can tell the difference.

I believe you on the carrots. My wife and I will often get a 2-lb bag of carrots and juice them. It makes about two 32-oz cups. Chug one of those, and you have the vision of a hawk for a few hours.

It has a cumulative effect, as well. I've been doing that for about a decade (no, I'm not orange; you obviously can't do it every day), but my glasses prescription is about a third of the strength it was before I started drinking carrot juice.

CokeBear: Anecdote, not data: I used to drink a glass of OJ every day. Then I figured out just how much sugar I was consuming, and that it wasn't doing me any good. Stopped. I'd sell my shares if I had any in Coke (Minute-Maid) or Pepsi (Tropicana?).


Because neither company has a diverse business model or smart enough to adapt to changing consumer trends.  Not in the least.

Mr.Poops: majestic: Maybe it's because the crap you buy in the store is mostly bad for you?

This has to be partially to blame -- Orange Juice is nothing but glorified, reconstituted sugar water.


Was in a meeting once and someome asked me to pass him a bottle of juice, but one that wasn't from concentrate because he didn't want any sugar. Thank god they have ingredient labels because I was able to simply point it out to him without embarrassing him too much. You'd be surprised at how many people don't know that the reason fruit is so tasty is that it's essentially candy.

You should see the chemicals they use in the carrot fields. Terrible nasty stuff. How else do you think they keep those rascally rabbits from tunneling underground and pulling the carrots down into their tunnels, leaving nothing but a hole where the carrot once was?

ReapTheChaos: Name one major brand of OJ that adds sugar. I'm not talking about crap like Sunny D, I mean real OJ like Tropicana, Simply Orange, Minute Maid etc. Next time you're in the grocery store you should read the labels, none of them do.


Every major brand stores their juice by removing the oxygen in the juice, thereby making it shelf stable (along with cold storage of course). This also removes the flavor. In order to get it tasting like orange juice again, they add a flavor mixture (aka chemical flavoring packs) before bottling it. Those packs contain plenty of sweeteners.

Go squeeze a glass of OJ and compare it to the mass produced stuff. The mass produced stuff is nasty.

How about eating your fruits and vegetables, thus deriving the benefits of the fiber normally pulled out in the juicing. Then replace the juice with water, tap if palatable, bottled if you don't like how slow a good filter is. And oranges are kinda iffy, they're like little candies even with the fiber. Orchard owner have selectively bred for sugar concentrations for centuries now.

What a novel idea! If only someone else had thought of it, like 20 times in this very thread. You are a wizard!

A couple of white rums and orange juices at 10am starts the day off perfectly.

A couple more at noon really starts the day off nice.

THIS. My family used to have an orange tree in the backyard, up until I was 4 and we moved a few blocks away. I don't remember how often we made orange juice with breakfast, but I can still remember how good it tasted after over 30 years. Also, we had one of those juicers with a motorized widget thingy that was fun to use.

FormlessOne: Because folks hate being lied to by an entire industry? The only way you're going to get orange juice that tastes like oranges is to actually squeeze it yourself, because these assholes will use whatever loopholes they can engineer or exploit in USDA regulations to sell you substandard flavored crap and call it "orange juice."

Oh, and don't search for "zombie OJ" - entirely different subject, apparently, than "zombie orange juice."


THIS!!!

As a former Florida resident, I can tell you that what you buy in grocery stores (even the ones in Florida) that's labeled as "not from concentrate" tastes nothing like fresh orange juice, smells nothing like fresh orange juice, and LOOKS nothing like fresh orange juice.  It's simply not fresh orange juice, despite everything the OJ industry would like you to believe.

Go get some real orange juice.  Trust me, you'll never want to drink the other stuff again (although you might do it anyway since it's cheaper, more convenient, and available year round.)

Wow, I can't believe they had the gall to claim it was "natural tasting" on the label. The stuff is only palatable if you don't make it at full strength, so it tastes merely like flavored water.

Its funny, because pretty much the only vital nutrient provided by oranges (in any form) is vitamin C, and oranges are a poor source considering how much sugar you have to ingest.
Papaya, strawberries, bell peppers, and broccoli are all vastly superior sources of C (and other nutrients), with far less fructose, and thus are overall healthier.

There's really no reason to buy any oranges or eat raw OR drink their juices considering  how limited their nutritional value is compared to their sugar content. Might as well order a grande soy frap, its nutritionally indifferent and about $1 cheaper. And no peel to discard. Or Mexican to employ.

FarkedOver: Maybe this means we are just brushing our teeth more.

Toothpaste sales must be through the roof! BUY BUY BUY!


You can avoid that problem by using a toothpaste that doesn't have sodium lauryl sulfate. (Can also avoid canker sores that way.)
