Pros: 100% Vitamin C and 420 milligrams of Potassium in 14 fl oz.
Cons: Except for...
I was still worried about the pesticide usage and the unfair treatment of trees while I took my first sip of this product. Compared to Sunkist Orange Soda, Mott's 100% Apple Juice is a definite winner in the taste department. You can drink it easier since there is no carbonation to worry about during ingestion. The product only has three ingredients, water, apple juice concentrate and ascorbic acid for Vitamin C. Sunkist Orange Soda has a list of over 5 ingredients and has a higher caloric intake per serving than apple juice!
My mind began to wander again, "Would Mott's advocate the use of free range cows or chickens around their trees?". I was obviously troubled as my activist mind had me almost ready to protest at Mott's headquarters on behalf of the innocent trees. Yet, I drank another sip of Apple Juice which turned into a gulp and realized that protesting was a fruitless effort. The product has no preservatives in it and the bottle was designed to be recycled. In fact, I would be affecting the cycle of renewal if I did not turn in this bottle to the local recycling center!
