The TreeTop Apple Juice I got at the local grocery store is from CHINA

I usually go to the Stephenville HEB because I absolutely loathe *store cards* that only give you a discount on goods if you give away your information and prove you are loyal. I'm loyal to HEB because they do NOT.  (Here's a podcast I did a couple of years ago on store cards.) However, every once in a while I run out of something and, rather than drive to Stephenville, I get whatever it is at Brookshires. Got some apple juice for hub and, as he was drinking it, he noticed the label said that it was from US-CHINA.

Makes you wonder, doesn't it? There aren't enough apple growers in this country to supply apple juice for Americans? Or is maybe one of the ingredients that can't be produced here and instead has to be imported from China? But no, the ingredients list says it is water and concentrated apple juice, not even any sugar added.

I put up this video on Youtube from Chet Edward's Town Hall Meeting in Granbury last year where a Hood County woman brought in a sack of some items she picked out of her pantry and then showed how so many of them were not from this country.

I'm not against imports from other countries but I'm against unfair trade practices. And I truly don't understand why we import apple juice from China. Now, if it's something that we can't produce here, I can understand. And, so far as I know, in this part of Texas, you can't grow apples unless they're grannie smiths. But in Washington state? I haven't heard talk about this for awhile but I also remember when farmers were being paid to let their crops rot in the fields while we bought imports. Maybe that still happens. But overall, I really resent going into an American store and seeing that the apple juice I"m buying, that has a Washington state label on it, might really come from China.

Just noticed this after serving a glass of it to my kids last night. This is an outrage. Time to boycott Treetop and write to them about it. Their label, if you read it, is hippocritical saying that THEY are the growers... Totally fraudulent. Damn Chinese imports.

Makes you think, eh? Have to look at every single dang label. I found a different apple juice to buy that has NO China label.
