We accidentally kept buying the Costco 4 pack of orange juice in the spring because we store the unused ones in the freezer (hey do we need orange juice?). We are still trying to finish it off (orange juice freezes nicely).

People are already drinking less than 40% of what they were drinking 20 years ago.

My consumption has also plummeted.  Not really sure why.  I like orange juice, but I just don't buy it or drink it much.

Among older Midwestern people, oranges used to be a delicacy.  People used to give each other baskets of oranges at Christmas.  When we would go to Florida when I was a kid, my dad would brink his own juicer to make OJ from oranges he bought at a roadside stand.

Ugh, bad math.  60%.

About all of the orange flavor I can stand in a beverage is that which you get from the Cointreau in a good Margarita.

I'm *IN* Florida and I don't even see oranges at roadside stands. I haven't had orange juice in probably the last year.

They bought their thicket, I say let them crash!

I haven't bought a carton (or bottle or jar) of orange juice in well over two decades. That shiat is not good for you. Way too much sugar, especially in fructose form.

mmm spiked orange juice

Same here. I thought it was just me. My god I used to drink what felt like a couple liters a day. Now, I can't even remember the last time I bought it.

People no longer drink orange juice because Wilfred Brimley invented diabetus

Spiked orange juice would not necessarily leave a bad taste.

Somebody make me a screwdriver.

I'm in Nor Cal and we have oranges up the wazoo (season is actually more winter-spring.)  Don't get the concentrated crap, always get 100% or squeeze your own if you can.  10x better than any store bought. If anyone ever gets the HFCS junk, you're not really drinking juice.

Most OJ is just orange flavored water like Sunny D. They remove the oxygen for longer shelf life and that takes the flavor out too so they throw in flavor packs to restore it.

Indian Valley is real OJ but it's $$$

OJ isn't really much of  domestic product anymore (greening disease) so the whole producers group that shoved ads down our throat to drink it stopped being a thing.

If you want to see what happened to the Florida citrus industry, just go to Clermont and go to the top of the "Citrus Tower".

tedthebellhopp: Italian ace juice> orange juice every day of the week


Is Italian ace juice actually from Italy in USA, or is it just the usual false branding?
 
2022-08-11 7:24:50 PM  
I use it in Mimosas. They are a great Sunday afternoon way to ease out of a hangover and into a nap.
 
2022-08-11 8:03:24 PM  
I drink an 8 oz. glass of fresh OJ every morning. I don't buy concentrate. I'm not brand loyal. I buy what's on sale. Been like that for 30 years. I need Vitamin C and Potassium. OJ is great for it. And it hits the spot.

That said, bottled fresh OJ has been one of, if not the biggest, dickheads of shrinkflation in my lifetime. In less than 20 years, we went from 64 oz, to 59 oz, to 56 oz, to the current 52 oz.

Price just goes up.
 
2022-08-11 8:09:19 PM  
A half gallon of WallyWorld OJ is about $2.60 or so right now.

It was $2.25 a few months ago.

Not any type of major increase, but its all about the aggregate price increase that's occurring in everyone's shopping basket.

"Death By 1000 Cuts" would be a fair analogy.

"Frog in a boiling pot of water" would be another.

The stuff the sell in stores has always been god awful crap I've never been able to stand. I grew up with about 4 orange/tangerine/tangelo trees in my grandparent's backyard and had fresh squeezed orange juice so often that any of the commercial stuff just tastes like sour chemicals to me. I've watched videos about what they do to it to keep it shelf-stable, how they store it, etc, and it's no wonder it only vaguely tastes partially reminiscent of what someone once imagined orange juice to taste like.

At the local grocery style, house brand, from concentrate, oj goes for 8.69/gal.  It's insane.

Hyvee has turned into Whole Foods these last few years
