Juice

Juicy Juice says it is an all natural 100% juice but it also says it is a flavored juice blend from concentrate with other natural flavors and added ingredients.

Contradictory not? Help me understand!

    "natural" is not a regulated word, it means nothing, just a marketing ploy. You could slap a "natural" on a bottle of hfcs and get away with it.

    I wouldn't trust juicey juice but that's just me. We don't give juice. As a treat my dd gets apple cider straight from the organic farm.

    ??Something wrong with Nestle ?? Wait maybe, I don't really want to know...but tell me anyway.

    Natural doesn't mean organic. It just means that it doesn't contain chemicals or preservatives.

    Oh my, where to start?
    Child labor, something about them wanting to buy and deplete the great lakes, illegal marketing, and they kill babies. They give samples of formula to mothers in third world countries where clean water is scarce, the mothers dry up and can't nurse and their babies die because they can't afford formula at all and/or over dilute it to the point where it's not substantial enough. I honestly don't know a lot about nestle and the boycott, but I know enough to want to avoid Nestlé.
