I recently had a one week trip to Arizona. It was a fantastic week of mountain biking and hiking. While visiting the Grand Canyon I took this picture in one of the stores on site. It is for Minute Maid ‘Lemonade’, showing a couple of nice yellow lemons, and then clearly stating that it is 0% juice. I was so amazed I had to take a picture. Is it really possible that you can call it “Lemonade” when it has 0% juice? Could they not have put in even 5%? A few weeks ago it was Honey, this week Lemonade. What is this trend of food items that are not food at all?
Simple economics no? Chemicals are cheaper than actual produce… so, as a corporation in search of additional profits moves further in that direction, you move towards chemicals. Pretty soon, lemonade will come in pill form.
