Albertsons grocery stores Complaint - A whopper of a lie! - Albertson's "100% Pomegranate Juice"

Review by OdysseusDawn on 2009-07-08
ALL -- This one is amazing. Have you heard what great anti-oxidents reside in pomegranate juice? Prices are through the roof because of the demand. Albertsons thought they would take advantage. Their package states in bold letters, "100% Pomegranate". But the list of ingredients (in order of most to least) states: "Ingredients: Filtered Water, Apple Juice Concentrate, Pomegranate Juice Concentrate, Grape Juice Concentrate, Arona (what's that?) Juice Concentrate, etc." WOW! What a whopper of a lie, Albertsons! I guess you really think your customers are idiots!

After Albertsons' parent company agreed with me that this package is a problem and promised me a month ago that the problem would be corrected, I am still finding the product on my local Albertsons' shelves. Now they tell me that the package meets USDA guidelines. BS! I will never shop there again, because I can't help but wonder what other dishonest practices they employ. Albertsons is pathetic! Joe Albertson (the founder) must be turning over in his grave. Another American icon down the tubes!

Aronia are also called chokeberries. And Albertson's should be ashamed of themselves for that lie.

I have seen Minute Maid's "pomegranate juice" contains similar ingredients. POM (which IS 100% pomegranate juice) is expensive...about $3 or so for a small bottle, about $5-$6 for the larger bottle. Both pomegranate and acai berry are the latest "healthy drink" fads, although a lot of these juices/drinks contain very little of the juice from those berries...again mostly apple and grape juices, some which also contain water and high fructose corn syrup.
