None for me, thanks. My husband likes Wheatgrass Juice Shots 'yuck' and v-8 but is not allowed fruit juice due to diabetes.

V8 when I'm low on veggies, and Cranberry (with vodka of course).

I rarely drink juice. Probably to busy drinking coffee.
(I can't quite stomach O.J. till I've eaten some carbs. I'm not sure why. I use to love v-8 but it now causes heart burn at times.

I'm a juicer. I make my own. My favorite is Apple. I also like a Grapefruit/Apple/Pineapple mix.

This week it's Pomegranate, because it has more antioxidants than orange juice. For variety, I alternate pomegranate, orange juice not from concentrate, Naked Juice Green Machine (looks disgusting but is delicious), and orange carrot juice.

I like to drink V-8 Juice but stay away from store bought fruit juices. I prefer to eat fresh fruit and keep fresh veggies on hand to make my own vegetable juice (green juice).

Since my pregnancies have gotten out of the habit of drinking juice (was not allowed particularly after I was found to have gestational diabetes). On the rare occasion that I do it is either orange juice or more often 100% natural Cran Grape by Northland.

Although I've been trying to cut out artificial sweeteners, occasionally I will indulge in a diet soda. And I absolutely love cranberry juice, but avoid drinking it becuase of the high calorie content. So, once in a while I'll have a diet sprite or 7up with just a splash of cranberry juice. That way I get my "fix" with a lot fewer calories.

I almost never drink juice because it's such a calorie counter... better to just eat the fruit or veggie.

Most common store-bought juice is veggie - V8, regular or spicy, usually drunk 1/2 & 1/2 with no fat broth as a hot soup. I also indulge in a bit of a good fresh apple cider in fall because it is SO good. Otherwise I eat my fruit raw, in its natural state, every day. I used to juice berries when I lived in California but can't grow enough good juicer ones here to make that work.

I very seldom buy juice. Mostly try to eat fruit. Seems more filling than a couple of glugs of juice. When I do buy it, usually Minute Maid fresh squeezed, lots of pulp and vitamins c and d.

The only fruit/veggie juice I drink since joining SP is Green Machine’s Naked All Natural Fruit & Boosts SUPERFOOD. I’d been eyeing it for years at the market but it was too expensive and I didn’t think I was worth the cost since I wasn’t dieting. No more… a two qt. container @ $5.88 from Costco is more than worth the benefits. There are eight, 8oz servings per bottle that includes apple juice, mango puree, pineapple juice, banana puree, kiwi puree, spirulina, chldrella, broccoli, spinach, barley grass, wheat grass, parsley, ginger root, blue green algae, odorless garlic… with no sugar added. One serving is 140 calories, 15mg sodium Yummy!!!!

When my four children were small they would ask why the only juice I would buy for them would be orange juice and then they only got it as homemade popsicles. I always said the same thing "If God had meant for you to drink juice he/she would have hung cans or cartons from trees." The truth is that I think you should eat the pulp as well as have the juice. I notice my kids now say the same thing to their kids.

My absolute favorite time and food of the day is the early AM. I make a cup of black coffee-hot and fresh-and have it with a small glass of OJ- very cold- and alternately sip from each while I read a page or two from 6 books on topics that I want to learn about. My adult ed and my first fruit of the day.

I sometimes will buy juice as a treat but like the whole fruit better--tastes better and more variety, plus you get some bulk

Voting with the majority here -- I'd much rather chew my fruit than drink it.
