Fruit juice cheaper than unhealthy fizzy drinks


Next time you think about buying a branded fizzy drink, full of sugar and dodgy additives check the price of a carton of fruit juice first.

The last time I checked a 500ml bottle of Fanta was £1.58 whereas a litre of apple juice, £1.50. I grant the apple juice was made from concentrate but had no added sugar, preservative, aspartame, caffeine, high fructose corn syrup, benzene, or colourings.

Half price and twice as healthy? Do people buy fizzy drinks because they don’t look at price or is this the power of clever marketing?

Why don’t we insist our kids drink the healthiest drink of all, water out the tap?
