What is low-sugar juice?
I would think normal people would put these in that category:
Juicy Juice 100% juice “no sugar added”: 26g/8oz
Apple and Eve “1/3 less sugar”: 22g/8oz (Made with vegetable juice)
Let's compare to the evil drinks:
Hi-C Fruit Drink: 28g/8oz
Or we could (OMG!) poison them with chemicals and give them Splenda-sweetened drinks or (OMG even more!) diet soda.
Seriously? Can we just call a spade a fucking spade? Juice IS sugar. Deal with it. Argue that juice is fine, and serve juice. Argue that sugar is bad, and don’t. But don’t pretend like a “low-sugar” name makes things any better.
If you are worried about adequate nutrition in your population, give them 100% juice drinks. If you worried about obesity (probably a bigger deal for poor North Carolina), give them water or something with an artificial sweetener.
There are plenty of reasons to argue for and against the juice box, and it's fine to want to get organic things (though I believe unnecessary). But you don't get to plop down "low sugar" and make things healthy. I'm not the only one who thinks juice and smoothies are as bad as other sugary drinks.
Even your organic, no-sugar added, hipster juice boxes are still just fucking sugar.
