FCOJ was developed in a US Govt spook lab facility building in New Orleans, which still sits on Wisner, right by City Park.  God only knows what else came out of those labs.

My ex wife litigated on behalf of Big Juice for years, and she wouldn't tell me exactly why, but she steadfastly maintained that she would never touch another drop of juice as long as she lived.

I find it a bit too spicy. But 50/50 mix with V8 is spot on for me.

probably the part where it spends literally years of its life as a deoxygenated white liquid in ginormous tanks, waiting to be bottled on demand - after the addition of flavor/color packs.

or it could be the part where it is literally impossible to grow oranges without a (illegal) metric fark-tonne of (illegal) pesticides, that's always good.

fair play, I'm not always up for the spice my-ownself. heck, sometimes I'd rather just have plain tomato juice than even V8.

TFA: "When you make orange juice at home, each batch tastes a little different depending on the oranges you made it from. I hope you're hearing warning bells in your head right about now. ... The reason your store bought orange juice is so consistently flavorful has more to do with chemistry than nature."

The same is true for everything home made: beer, wine, bread, spaghetti sauce, meth, pickles, etc.

I remember having that orange juice bird doll as a kid.  Probably a souvenir of Florida.

I just don't like orange juice. I don't even drink Screwdrivers. And for eating, I'll take a couple Clementines over an orange.

Too much effort for a bloody mary? It's not too hard to say 'I'll take a bloody mary, please...mild, not spicy' to your waitress bringing you breakfast menus.

/don't want an entire charcuterie board in my bloody mary, thank you very much.
//pickle, olive (green), pepperoncini

Like the Zing Zang a lot, but sometimes I like to play around with a recipe. You can adjust things as you see fit for whatever mood your in. (Let's face it, if you're drinking a Bloody Mary, it's probably early and you're probably in a "mood"). The following is what I'd use on the regular and adjust as needed.

V-8 (spicy if you feel like it)
Lemon (or lime) juice
Worcestershire, few drops to taste
Horseradish, to taste
Hot sauce, to taste
Celery seed
Vodka (obviously)

Garnish with any mixture of celery, pepperoncini, olive, pickled okra (or any pickled veggie). Rim of glass should have some spicy/salty thing on it.
