In Which I Am Confused

While getting a few groceries the other day, I saw this: 

I understand there are some pretty dense people out there, but do we really need to stoop this low? I mean, I think it's pretty evident even to an infant what juice is without having to label it as a "beverage". 

What stupid things have you seen lately?

Imagine the other options it could say "Apple Juice main course", "Apple Juice appetizer"...
I bet there were directions on the back of the bottle about how to drink it, too!
Stupidity? Oh, I must be too used to it around me to notice anything glaring.

Kat said...

Maybe it wasn't pure juice.

Jenn(ifer) said...

Seriously. I fuckin' love Hannaford. (oops I swore)
But look at it this way: it has 3 guiding stars and you really can't get any better than that.

Well, at Hannaford anyways ;-)

Can't be too careful, people will drink anything. Have a look at this

The Social Frog said...

That's Hannaford for ya!

You never know. Although I'm sure it was in the beverage aisle.

P.S. Your masthead is the shit.

Bee and Rose said...

That's just plain dumb,isn't it? I love that you took a picture of it! lol!

Lola said...

They have to write that, because there's probably no apple juice in it whatsoever. Of all the grocery stores I hate, they're the worst!

Miss Grace said...

It's apple juice beverage because it's not 100% juice, so they can't call it apple juice.

It's like how they actually call american cheese "cheese food." Because it's not actually cheese.

Heather said...

100% juice is cheap enough that most people who can afford to buy juice at all, can choose that over "almost juice" every time, so I don't know why they even bother. If it says juice "drink" that's an indicator too that it isn't 100% juice.

Maybe they're implying that its gots something more than juice in it. Booze maybe???

Moonspun: That's what I was thinking, too. "Set glass on counter. Remove cap from bottle. Pour slowly."

Kat: It probably wasn't.

Jenn(ifer): Hannaford is a pretty bitchin' place.

Single Parent Dad: That is just wrong. And pathetic. And wrong.

The Social Frog: It sure is.

X: One of many beverage aisles, yes. And thank you!

Bee and Rose: A man's gotta have something to do while the wife is comparing the price per pound on two types of cereal.

Lola: Hannaford is one of the only grocery stores around here. I kinda have to deal.

Miss Grace: It's not?

Heather: I know. It's just silly how they label it.

Cape Cod Gal: That'd be nice. I'm not sure what I'd like in my apple juice, though. Maybe a shot of Hot Damn.
