REVIEW: Organic OJ

Here in the UK we have plenty of choice when it comes to Orange Juice. You can get local, imported, organic, no name, fairtrade or premium. Whatever your politics...there is an Orange Juice to fill your glass.

And do not for a moment think that your Orange Juice is not Politics. By the time you have had your breakfast you have interacted with half the planet, as Martin Luther King, I believe it was him, so rightly pointed out.

If breakfast is politics then your daily glass of Orange Juice is possibly more important than the vote. The companies you support probably affect the planet more than most governmental policies.

So the OJ I drink to start my day is important to me. The better the OJ...the happier my day. I do not do freshly squeezed as I do not have the time during the week so for convenience I buy in cartons like most people.

I am embarrassed to admit that up until now I have been a Tropicana man. The flavour was good...what can I say...I am ashamed! But recently I have rediscovered the Organic OJ from Grove Fresh. By the way OJ is just one of their range of eight fruit and vegetable juices.

Now don't get me wrong...Grove Fresh ain't cheaper. Tropicana currently costs £1.69 and Grove Fresh costs £2.29.

But that extra 60p (approx US $1.10) per litre, or 15p (an extra quarter-ish) per glass, buys me a lot of taste and organic love.

And to be honest Grove Fresh tastes better. Not because it is Organic, although that helps of course. It just actually is a nicer taste of OJ for me. Seriously. I am hooked! Try it for yourself! Do the OJ Taste Challenge. Let me know what you think.
