Curse you, Pasteur!
We're running low on food, so we don't have a lot of citrus to juice. Well, we have none. So, Chris went to the store to pick up some agave and some other stuff for his siblings (we were babysitting) and he brought home some Odwalla grapefruit juice. We LOVE grapefruit juice. We also love Odwalla. But.
We do NOT love Odwalla's grapefruit juice. Oh Lord. It was disgusting. It was vile. It was an abomination of nature! I took a teeny sip and my tongue was assaulted by a cloudy, almost brown mass of liquidy death. Grapefruit juice is supposed to be pink, light, fresh, sweet with just the right amount of bitter. This stuff was pure bitterness with the sour from the grapefruit and was just awful.
It made us sad to think that most people try this and think that this is was grapefruit tastes like. It totally isn't!!! Grapefruit juice is so delicious, you've heard me talking about it before! I was telling my mother about how delicious it is and she was scrunching her face up in disgust--BECAUSE SHE HAS ONLY HAD PASTEURIZED JUICE! It's very sad that most people wouldn't think to indulge in fresh juice because they don't think it would be different, you know?
Why does pasteurized stuff have to taste so different than the original product? I wonder how different raw milk tastes, now that I think about it (lol, although I never want to find out!)
I'm off to lunch with my mom to Fresh Choice now. :) I'm finally past the stage where I gorge on bread and potatoes rather than the actual salad! lol
