As kids, most of our juice was the kind astronauts drank. Or if we were lucky, our mom popped a can of frozen concentrate out of the freezer and mixed it with 3 cans of tap water.
Today, our juicing tastes are far more sophisticated. Especially this time of year when we’re approaching Swimsuit, Beach, Gay Cruise, Looking in the Mirror Naked season.Sure, we could do our own juicing. Lord knows we have a several-hundred-dollar machine for that, but it takes a couple hours to juice for the week ahead. Not to mention shelling out tons of dough on fresh produce.
Going to a cold-press juice shop runs between $10 and $14 per pint, too.
That’s why we were thrilled when we found Suja, a line of organic, non-GMO juices that you can get at your local grocery store.
True confessions, we found it at Wal-Mart while on vacation a few months ago in a small ski town where that’s really the only grocery store option. There, it’s less than $3 a bottle compared to about $8 for a slightly larger size on the company web site.
All we know is that these juices are definitely worth seeking out. Even if you pay more to get them from the Suja web site, they’re still considerably less than what you’ll find at most juicing boutiques in major cities. And they’re delicious.
Plus, with the money we’re saving we’ve started a fund to pay for a seat on a Virgin Galactic flight where we can drink good juice in space.
$7.99 per 16-ounce bottle (or significantly less at some retail stores)
