I can't stand the apple juice either, and I found an alternative -
- "R W Knudsen" brand has a Peach Nectar and also Apricot Nectar, that has no added vit C, and only about 2-5% of naturally occuring vit C... I find them both very palatable.
(their Pineapple coconut has also no added vitamin C, for those who can tolerate pineapple)
- then here is also "L&A" brand Pomegranate Cranberry Delight that has NO added ascorbic acid AND no natural vitamin C
