Note to self: Tropicana brand Apple Juice is vile.

You may now return to your regularly scheduled program.



P.S. I'm also offended at "100% Apple Juice" followed by, "From concentrate with other ingredients." There are seven ingredients listed. Argh.

Are the Seven other ingredients all apple juice?

Nope.

How about Cement or Moon rocks. I find those add alot of flavor and not much by way of fat and calories...

Cascadian Farms' organic apple juice frozen concentrate is quite good (which is possibly against the odds), if that's a brand you can use.

I sympathize. There is nothing quite like a glass of vile apple juice. At least it wasn't Donald Duck brand.

Ingredients: Apples, Apples that were bruised and no longer for resale, Apples that fell from the tree and were picked up, Apples that had brown spots, Apples that were home to worms, Apples that were bitten by the orchard's mascot (Mungo the horse), Crab Apples

no, THAT I could deal with. What I'm having trouble accepting is the mathematical impossibility that a product could be 100% fruit juice but not have fruit juice as the sole ingredient.

You probably need to shift your mind a little into Schrodinger's territory. Let's back up and focus on the Apples with worms in them.

Suppose a worm in an apple has eaten apple for most of his life. In the existential, you-are-what-you-eat sense of things, you could consider the worm as being an apple as well. He hasn't stopped being a worm. He has just developed a simultaneous alter-existence that is also his counterpart. He is more of a taoist than most of us can ever manage.

So when you take this worm/apple and add him to Tropicana Apple Juice, you have conflict of a verbal and existential nature. He is apple, so he is part of the 100%. He is worm, so he falls outside the 100%.

Venn diagrams have no place in Eastern religion.

So the ingredients list before you is not so much a contradiction as it is a personal question about your beliefs and world views. What is it you, Karen? Have you imbibed 100% apple juice, or did you swallow the worm?

Great. You've forever linked apple juice and tequila for me. And I think that tequila is nature's way of letting humans know that even though you can drink it doesn't mean you should drink it.

Even apple-flavored tequila wouldn't help.
