While shopping at Giant, I picked out some store brand products. I brought home Giant Festingos Tortilla Chips and Giant brand 100% Vegetable Juice. I wondered how the store brand of vegetable juice would compare to the popular V8. This associated content article is my review of Giant brand 100% Vegetable Juice.
Review of Giant brand 100% Vegetable Juice : Packaging
A 46 fl oz / (1 qt 14 fl oz) / 1.36 L bottle of Giant’s own store brand of 100% Vegetable Juice was purchased at Giant for $2.00. It contains about six 240ml (8 fl oz) servings. Packaging is a plastic bottle like V8. Curbside recycling has added a lot to the list of acceptable items. My curbside recycling takes many types of plastics including this #1 bottle. Package recyclability is something I consider to be important when purchasing products.
