Supermarket with Fruit Juice Mixes that are Not From Concentrate

Hello everyone,

Despite much searching I have not been able to find mixes of fruit juices not from concentrate that I can buy in store to take home. The closest I've got is orange juice and pineapple juice (separately). It seems like mixes are always from concentrate, unless you go to a restaurant.

Any ideas? Preferably upper west or midtown.

  1. I was upstairs at Fairway this morning. There was a fairly good selection of fruit juices in the organic section (glass bottles). The Lakewood brand are not from concentrate and are pure juices. I usually get the cranberry but I bought the pomegranate to try this time. They don't seem to have mixed ones but they did have cranberry, pomegranate, blueberry, and cherry (and maybe some others too).

    ETA: I was in the Fairway on 74th & Bway.

    1. Many, if not most, grocery stories in Manhattan carry Bolthouse Farm "smoothies", which are wonderful mixtures of juices. The berry flavor is a mix of blueberry, raspberry and blackberry. There's a Green Goodness flavor that's kiwi and apple, I think. They're pretty expensive -- usually around $3.50 or $4 for 16 fl. oz -- but so darn good for an occasional splurge.

      1. This may be obvious...but why not buy fresh juices and just mix them yourself at home? Another option is to go to one of the many juice bars in town and get whatever mixes you want and take it home...

        Also, did you try the health food stores?

        1. also check the freezer section in latin markets for bags of frozen pulps from Goya or La Fey. you can find Dragon Fruit, Tamarind, Soursop, and some other exotic flavors.

              Food Emporium usually has a good selection, although I don't recall seeing soursop there. there are several bodegas on 10th ave in the upper 50's that may have it. otherwise you can order it online from Goya


              Macondo on Houston has a soursop mimosa that i haven't tried, but sounds interesting.
