Its now jan. 08. and im flying through money at the supermarket. hardly ever eating out. i just fly through money. i was in the usa in oct. and im spending more on food here and the selection and quality was better back in usa.
Tropicana Premium, one of the few juices not loaded with chemicals and sweetners, is now 4.50 a liter. that makes it almost 5 dollars a gallon. bought one last night, squeezed from rotten fruit. made me sick. it happens often.
these prices are killing me.

If you bought juice and you can prove it was made out of rotten fruit you should report that to the Anmat, Bromatologia and call the company as well

if things were that straightforward in argentina, it wouldnt be the mess it is. this is a very third world country, believe me. a cop will stand there and watch a car almost kill you in the crosswalk and do absolutelly nothing. cars have no headlights, nothing is done.
no reporting things make little change. customer service is appalling. we drink rotten juice and the prices are rising. certainly im not the only one drinking lousy juice here. oh and how i pine for apple juice, juice blends with kiwi and strawberry and pineapple juice, apple cider. all things i can buy easily and cheaper back home.

Tropicana is a PepsiCo subsidiary. The fact that they're selling you juice made from bad oranges seems to me to be typical American corporate practice -- when they can get away with it. So why blame Argentina and Argentinians instead of the corporate bandits from your own country?

dear ms. or mr. fishface,
the fact is though, that the juice in argentina is lousy and getting more expensive each day.
so much better in other countries, lousy juice in argentina. beware. its coke, and soda pop here and beef fat cookies with artificial flavor.
