What's Wrong With This Picture?
This is not a bottle of apple juice, but a high-fructose-corn-syrup cocktail with "essence of apple" somewhere at the bottom of the ingredient list.
Sneaky retailer, who slipped this "juice" in the same spot I normally reach for a bottle--you somehow managed to fool the Queen of Label Reading.
The worst part? I had just delivered a sanctimonious grocery lecture to the little one. He wanted to buy dry cereal because "it would build my muscles" much like the strong-armed child on the box.
We agreed that we would watch out for the tricky colors and pictures together.
