So anyway, last night I went to the grocery store to pick up some apple juice. I'm a bigger bargain hunter than ever lately so I really study labels, prices and quantity now. I'm also trying to get a better handle on the amount of sugar my kids are consuming.
While perusing the juice isle I saw this product, what draw me to it was the 40% less sugar claim. I was intrigued so I took it down from the top shelf to take a closer look. Do you see what I see on the bottom of the package? The part you can't see when it's perched high up on the shelf. Yea that part - the part that says "Apple juice + purified water".
HELLO people - don't you get it? Of course there's 40% less sugar - there's 40% less juice!!! You're paying for less apple juice and more water - at twice the price no doubt!
Since the water coming from my tap is purified already I bought the store brand apple juice and will water it down - viola 40% less sugar.
