The Orange Juice Industry Is
One Example of the Need
to Defeat the Deep State

September 19, 2020 --

Please go to your local supermarket.  Look at the bottom of what used to be a half-gallon (64 fl. oz.) container of orange juice. More likely than not -- if it is Tropicana or Florida's Natural or Tree Ripe or Simply Orange, the brands sold at LPR's local Key Food  --   the amount in the container will hold 52 fl. oz., 12 fl. oz. less than a half gallon.  What were once real half gallons of orange juice have dwindled down to virtual half gallons.   

If it is Newman's Own lemonade or limeade, the container will hold 59 fl. oz, 5 fl. oz. below a half gallon. 

The only drink that still came in actual half gallons  that LPR could find was from Turkey Hill, and these half gallons contained different types of tea, not orange juice. 

Why can't the distributors let half gallons remain real, not virtual, half gallons?
