Check the health food section of your local grocery store. That's where they hide all the good stuff! And there are always a few brands on sale.

Juicy Juice - 100% juice and usually reasonably priced

of course I haven't bought any in YEARS. But when my nephew was younger Juicy Juice was the only brand we'd buy.

Sorry, I don't "buy" juice. I make my own. It takes me about 5 minutes in the morning and i have a fresh lovely green juice.

Read the label, it should say 100% juice.
Just because the juice was at one time concentrated (like frozen juice) and then reconstituted---it is still 100% juice, if the label says 100% juice it is 100% juice. Since you use such a small amount, I would suggest nothing larger than a 1 quart size (this would be 4 cups).

You might try looking in the produce section of the grocery - like wherever they stick the fancy baby-lettuce-blends and pre-cut fruit cups and refrigeration-required dressings and such? that's where the (UBER EXPENSIVE) "real fruit juice" brand are kept in the places I shop.

To get it "fresh/not-from-concentrate" is challenging, as it is SO much more expensive, that many stores won't carry it, because not enough people will buy 2-cups-for-five-bucks when they could get a whole quart of from-concentrate for 2.99.....

I am more or less looking for something to have here and there, not going to sit and drink an entire bottle. Plus I like to use juice with my smoothies. I had thought about a juicer, but not sure I would use it enough.

I buy Knudsen Just Cranberry, which is exactly what it sounds like, just cranberry juice, *nothing* else added (not other fruit juices, not sugar). I use it sparingly, as it's so concentrated I'll often cut it with water.

Commercial products can be quite expensive. Have you thought about putting a little money away each week towards buying your own juicer and doing your own? :)

Remember juice should be limited to no more than a cup a day and only count as 1 serving of fruit/vegie.

I love juice, but I am finding that it is EXTREMELY hard to find "real" juice anywhere! It is all from concentrate, or has a ton of added sugar. Anyone have any suggestions on where to buy the real stuff, or what brands to look for?
