Haven't seen those varieties at my WallyWorld.. but, they did have Martinelli's at over $8/g and Musselman's at under $5. Both unfiltered.. I bought a few gals of the Musselman's

Never get pulp in your OJ. They have a acceptable maggot level in the pulp they add back to your "juice". And come on they do freeze the vats sometimes.
But yeah each vat was graded on color, aroma, consistency, mouthfeel and flavor among other things. And the appropriate additive was added to the juice to correct it so that all juice is just the same.
ISH! Better living through chemistry. Remember that from TV commercials in the late sixties? Most people don't know the half of what we are eating. Hey let's talk about hot dogs and bologna.... again, ISH!

Brings an ENTIRELY new perspective to the words 'natural flavors' from the juice I saw at wally world.

Yummy... Squirmy.... 'Natural Flavors'....

I saw this juice recently as well. We picked up a bottle of honey crisp and it just tasted like overly sweetened generic apple juice to me. I don't think it was actually derived from a honey crisp apple.

That said, it might be worth a ferment? I should check the SG with my refractometer. It might not even need additional corn sugar.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honeycrisp

Try aging a few Honeycrisp apples in a cool, dry & reasonably dark place for a couple weeks. Eat them when the skin is just starting to wrinkle. They taste like an awesome sweet cider & are just bursting with flavour. Earlier than that & they taste like a very good eating apple, I love the crunch & flavour.
Regards, GF.

Its crazy to see how many nasty things get into (and are acceptable) in the food you eat: FDA's Defect Levels Handbook.

At the factory, it's acceptable for orange juice (canned, anyway) to have 1 maggot or 5 fly eggs per cup.

The honey crisp juice is delicious. It has a "brightness" to it. I think it's an interesting flavor. I almost got this but was not sure because of the added flavors, and ended up using mussel and cider which is pretty good. I still want to try the honey crisp juice. Recently got a jug of just plain Walmart brand juice and glad I did not make a cider with this, as it is bland.

As for the oj story that's just nasty. I am one to get lots of pulp. Not anymore! Bleh!
