Am I the only one who finds it rather disturbing that the folks at the Yoga juice company thought it would be a fabulous idea to make their “Green Apple” juice the color of snot?
I dunno. These are the things I wonder about. I mean, apple juice that’s clear or even slightly iced-tea colored in the States has really culturally conditioned me to believe that there is no need for a split pea soup version of apple juice.
In case you were wondering what produces that spectacular hue, it’s called “clorofillina rameica.” That’s sodium copper chlorophyllin to you and me.
Man, the things you learn when you have a mind that works like mine. Snot juice. Who would’ve thought? Reminds me of those 7th grade science lessons about algae. The only reason I even have this monstrosity in my house is because my daughter insisted on it in the grocery store today. Frankly I find it revolting looking and can’t even bring myself to try it.
Ok, I’m done. You can go back to your regularly scheduled programming now.
