Everyone knows that Cranberry Juice is good for you. But when you try to buy it - there's Cranberry Juice Cocktail, which is a blend of Cranberry and other juices, sweetened with HFCS or sugar or something you don't want. Or you get Cranberry Juice, no sugar added - and it really isn't. In that instance I found it was NOT a code name for "Splenda added instead". But it was a blend of Cranberry and other juices, mostly apple. Apple juice is good for you too, but when I want Cranberry, darn it, I want Cranberry.
Then there's pure Cranberry juice from the health food section. At $7-something a bottle, I don't drink much of that either.
I'd found this a few months ago - for $3-change - and couldn't remember where I'd found it. Found it again last week - at Wal*Mart. Stocked up. Pure Cranberry Juice. Ocean Spray. Pure Cranberry Juice is quite - QUITE - tart. I dilute mine with water and drop in a few drops of Stevia. And know my urinary tract is getting that good Cranberry stuff, not a blend with a little Cranberry in it.
