Sorry, just had to get this off my chest:

A certain juice company in this part of the world has decided to market a new juice that contains "50% less sugar"!. Funnily enough, it also contains "50% real fruit juice" and half the vitamin C. OH REALLY?! You didn't happen to just dilute regular juice with water to try to sell it off as a healthier alternative did you? Grrrr!

Of course not - who would stoop to such lowly, deceitful means of marketing to earn more money for less product? Not any company I know of - oops sorry - not any company I am do not know of. All of them would.

What's more worrying than what they are doing is that there clearly has to be enough people out there somewhere [insert non-offensive word] enough to buy the silly thing for the marketing team to judge the exercise worthwhile. Either that, or people are too lazy/incompetent to dilute their own juice.

...Aargh, why do I care?! I don't even drink juice!!

100% Real Orange juice is the best ;D

Yummy, and it's really sweet as well!

Reflux! This reminds me of endless hours in organic and inorganic chemistry practicals praying that I would get some product and preferably without impurities.

No I like the juice just have to drink it in moderation to avoid the heart burn from the loss of my gall bladder.... acidic things give me heartburn since my removal.. but in particular Orange juice in high concentrates!

Night Seany!

In the UK it has been proved that tap water is cleaner & purer than any bottled water. But people still pay 5 pounds for a 1 litre bottle of Eau de Merde.

Yup.. We always drink bottled water!! My dad doesn't believe in tap water.. Quite expensive too!!

And tap water tastes a bit funny.. It has that "blood" taste to it.. Or the "iron" taste!

Your water tastes of BLOOD! weird.

I drink tap water but have to keep reminding myself that we now have a water softener and only one tap is drinking water. I do like badot slightly sparkly bottled water as a treat. It is great for the digestion. Perhaps we should dilute the orange concentrate with this and they will cancel each other out!!!!!!

Yup I think it's the English iron pipes!!
Maybe it's gone rusted or something..
Whatever tap water I drink around here, it tastes of rust!

(Blood because blood has iron in it.. and that's what it tastes like!!)
