Useless Juice.

We don’t drink juice “for fun” in our house; it’s only for low blood sugars, considered almost as medicinal as the insulin hiding out in the butter compartment of our fridge.

So when I came home with these juice boxes unintentionally, I was pissed.

35% less sugar?  That’s exactly what I don’t want!

Useless juice.  I’m bringing it back and swapping it out for the fixes-a-40mg/dL-at-4am kind of juice.  The high octane juice.  Proper juice.

  2. How do they take the sugar out of the fruit? Or perhaps it’s 35% less added sugar compared to juices that have added sugar? I agree, buy the real stuff, it’s less confusing!

    They water it down! It tastes gross, like when people add ice to juice (also pointless) . I have tried them and end-up drinking three to get my sugar to come up, which makes sense mathematically (35×3=105). I buy juice in bulk and it is the real 100% stuff. I was drinking pure before I was diagnosed. I never understood why sugar is added to stuff God already made sweet. Don’t mess with God’s design! that includes watering it down. Soapbox too high, thank you.

  4. I agree less sugar in fruit juice sounds like more water. So now you can drink 3 for 1.

      I drink three to get the same results for one “real” juice box. They have about the same fluid ounces so…

    My sister has bought juice for me on occasion, and it’s always organic or some such nonsense. I don’t need a microbrewery beer here, sis, Bud will do just fine!
