I wish one of those Best Choice execs would taste this swill being passed off as Sweet Tea. My wife bought a 12 pack and 10 of them are gathering dust. Nowhere on the box or cans does it say where it was made. Just that it's proudly distributed by some outfit in Kansas City. They wouldn't be so proud if someone forced them to actually taste one.

I tend to buy apple juice in clear plastic bottles if I can. Majority of apple juices are stamped, CHINA and I refuse to buy those brands, including generic. The only brand that I have found stamped USA is Mussleman's Premium Apple Juice, with the American Flag on the label. It's usually around 2.55 per bottle which is alot in this economy. I look for it on sale and then stock up. Grape juices, and others besides apple tend not to marked CHINA. Although I've seen some of those marked Argentina too.
It's important to be an aware consumer these days. I know so many folks who for obvious reasons, shop for price and never realize how much is not MADE IN THE USA. So sad.

It's a concentrate from China. That says it all. What's wrong with selling American raised and produced food products? Are we afraid U.S. farmers might make some money? What a stupid country we live in. No concern for the welfare of our citizens.

It's because it MIGHT take a LITTLE work to find products MADE IN AMERICA. Like reading the labels!!!!! There ARE other options available for American made food items. Just ONE example would be a local farmers market. Although it IS a bit late in the season for that.

What makes it easy is the large chain stores. Wal-Mart, Super K-Mart et al.

Problem is people look for the easy and fast way out. Not wanting to pay an extra ten cents for a QUALITY product hurts us all.

Acceptance of these sub-standard products if the big problem. I would be willing to bet that there is a lot more that is found and never reported.

Why would we purchase apple juice from China? There are plenty of apple orchards and juice distributors in the US. DON'T BUY FOOD FROM CHINA IS WHAT WE SHOULD BE SAYING!!!

getting close to Christmas. Folks need some cash. These food contamination deals generally come out smelling like a set-up. Easy for the consumer to complain about. Hard for the distributor to dis-prove.
