Orange Juice Taste Test

Whether you enjoy orange juice with your breakfast or with a mid-day snack, OJ is one of the most beloved beverages. In fact, Americans drink around 3.2 gallons of orange juice per person, per year! When purchasing the citrus-flavored treat, buy juices labeled 100% orange juice to ensure you're getting only OJ. Some other terms you'll find on the packaging:

PASTEURIZED
Almost all supermarket orange juice is pasteurized (heated to a high temperature), increasing its shelf life and ensuring that the juice doesn't separate.

FROZEN CONCENTRATED ORANGE JUICE (FCOJ)
This is orange juice with the water removed. When prepared according to package directions, FCOJ has about the same amount of vitamin C as not-from-concentrate juice.

FROM CONCENTRATE
Water has been removed from this juice for storage, then added back in before bottling. In terms of nutrition and price, buying a carton of OJ "from concentrate" is about the same as mixing it yourself.

FORTIFIED ORANGE JUICE
These varieties have added nutrients. Choose ones that have the same Percent Daily Value of calcium (30% DV) and vitamin D (25% DV) as a glass of milk.

Read on to find out which juices are our top picks.

    • See What Little Ricky From "I Love Lucy" Looks Like Today

      When Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz welcomed a son into the world, so did the characters they played on I Love Lucy. Lucy Ricardo gave birth to "Little Ricky" in season two. But real-life Lucy and Desi didn't want their baby on screen for obvious reasons, so they cast a wide net in search of a set of similar-looking twins. (Having two children alternate for one role helps shows adhere to child-labor laws that limit camera time for the industry's youngest actors.) Desi Arnaz chose15-month-old Joe and Mike Mayer based on a photo he'd seen of them at a Twins Club picnic, where their mother was president, the Idaho-Press Tribune reports.

    • The NES Classic is back in stock at a bunch of Target stores right now

      The NES Classic has been permanently out of stock ever since it first launched last November. Nintendo has been hustling to increase production to meet the unprecedented demand, and it looks like it might be working. Target stores across the country currently have the NES Classic in stock and ready for you to buy right now. According to NowInStock's Target stock checker, Targets all around the country currently have between 1 and 10 units on shelves. A quick check of areas around New York, New Jersey and LA show some stores with stock, so it's definitely worth putting your ZIP code in and checking stock. Target stores are reportedly getting daily stock, so if you don't find anything today, it could be worth camping out your nearest big Target early tomorrow morning. The amount of stock different stores receives depends on size and location, with big suburban stores near big cities normally being the best bet. There's also a rumor going around that ToysRUs stores are getting a huge stock dump on January 26th, which could be worth checking out. Right now, Walmart and Target are the only two physical stores getting any inventory, but it seems that Nintendo is slowly starting to catch up with demand. As more units have been coming available, prices on second-hand resellers on Amazon have been falling. While the NES Classic ran about $250 before Christmas, prices are now down around $150. That's still a huge increase over the $60 RRP, but it shows that the NES Classic supply is very slowly catching up on demand. To keep track on stock, you're still best off using BrickSeek  and NowInStock , which offer features to help you track and receive notifications for online stock. For your local stores, the best bet is still to try and call and speak to an employee in the releveant department, who may be willing to help you work out when stock will next arrive.

    • Al Gore's Prediction Comes True

      When An Inconvenient Truth was released more than 10 years ago, the most criticized scene of Al Gore's climate change documentary was the flooding of downtown New York City from sea level rise and storm surge. Well, as the former vice president explains in the first official clip of An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, that prediction came true. The new film, which premiered last week at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, is a follow-up to the groundbreaking 2006 documentary. It follows Gore's efforts around the world to influence international climate policy and galvanize support for the climate change movement. The overall message is more hopeful compared to its predecessor,

Bill and Hillary Clinton made a conscious decision to give Clinton a normal childhood — at least as normal as possible — by discouraging press coverage except during public events.
