Who buys this stuff?

While at the grocery store the other day, I noticed a section of candy themed "juice" drinks in the juice box section. I don't understand why any parent would purchase what appears to be liquid candy for their kids to consume, especially when there are perfectly delicious 100% juice boxes available in the same section for a comparable price. I don't know a single child who doesn't enjoy real juice!

My rant for the day...carry on!


  1. Ugh! I am with you. It seems the more obnoxious, cartoon-like, and candy-related, the more the kids want it. My boys always seem to be drawn to the florescent "yogurt" in the grocery store, simply due to bright packaging or famous cartoon characters. I guess the upside to this picture is perhaps it is more "honest" marketing- after all, this "juice" is more like liquid candy (as you said), and it looks like they're not even trying to do much to disguise it as "healthy". And good for you, this could be categorized under "What my kids aren't eating." Hooray!

  2. I agree-this stuff just looks NASTY!
