I work in a produce dept and I hear the "it's too expensive line all the time. Here's the deal: firstly... since there are no preservatives it has to be shipped from the plant straight to the chains f.d.c. (food distro), or a small d.c. for convience stores etc. Compare to Nabisco etc. who can ship to a holding area at a warehouse and then to dc's as needed in very large batches. Half the Naked would expire by then. This increases the price to the retailer, which is reflected to you, also consider that the price is inflated because you inevitably will have to throw some away when it hits date on the shelf, prices are set to offset this loss, allowing full shelves all the time. Bolthouse is good... however... naked seems more consistent from batch to batch, sometimes bolthouse will get funky variations in flavor, especially the berry ones Vanilla Chai roks though. I drink them the day they go out of date, my boss lets me snatch em up before they get thrown out. 1 a day, almost every day.
Blue Machine FTW!!!
The only disc I throw well consistently is my lucky Wizard.
