One hundred percent!
(Not counting those other ingredients)

Dear Tropicana:

Can a bottle be said to contain "100% APPLE JUICE" if, according to the same label, it contains "OTHER INGREDIENTS"?

I don't doubt that Tropicana 100% APPLE JUICE contains apple juice; nor do I doubt that the apple juice it contains is, in fact, made of apples.

But the ingredient list for Tropicana 100% APPLE JUICE should read:

INGREDIENTS: 100% APPLE JUICE.

not

INGREDIENTS: 100% APPLE JUICE FROM CONCENTRATE (FILTERED WATER AND CONCENTRATED APPLE JUICE), NATURAL FLAVORS, MALIC ACID AND ASCORBIC ACID (VITAMIN C).

I'm not even all that bothered by the multitudinous sources of your concentrates ("CONTAINS CONCENTRATES FROM GERMANY, AUSTRIA, ITALY, HUNGARY, ARGENTINA, CHILE, TURKEY, BRAZIL, CHINA, AND THE UNITED STATES"), even though that's four of the seven continents we have, until something really noticeably major happens.

I just don't much care for your math.

Hochste lust!
D.o.C.
