<<< As for Stefan's dilemma, finding only very expensive pomegranate
juice at the health food store... well, i don't know if there are any
Trader Joe's markets in... is it Austin where you live, Stefan? >>>

Yes, I'm in Austin. I haven't actually been looking in the health  
food stores, as there really aren't any that convenient to me. I  
think I must have been referring to the "health" section of the juice  
row at my local HEB grocery store. A single section in the juice row  
where they sem to cluster the organic and other unusual, and more  
expensive, juices. Hmm. then the next section is the regular juices  
and then you get into the sections of "fruit beverages" Hi-C and the  
like. I hadn't realized it until I was describing it that the quality  
and price of the juice tends to progress downward as you progress  
from the front to the back of the store on that row.

Unfortunately, we don't have any Trader Joe's around here, although  
from what folks on this list have said, it would be nice to have a  
few. However, we do have Central Market and that is a regional  
concept gradually growing from Austin outward to Dallas and Houston,  
and I assume eventually to elsewhere.

<<< ...but anyone who does have one not too far away, TJ's has bottled
unsweetened pomegranate juice and bottled unsweetened blueberry juice
for almost to half the price of the organic at Whole Foods. >>>

Whole Foods started in Austin, also, but they aren't as convenient to  
me as the grocery stores, so I don't go there as often. However, the  
closest Whole Foods is closer to me than the closest Central Market.  
As someone else mentioned, the flagship home office store downtown  
has a lot of interesting food items that you can buy and eat there in  
the store. However, we don't go there very often because they don't  
sell non-sugared/diet soft drinks because "They aren't natural".  
Well, *I* want something to drink with my meal and as a diabetic the  
fruit juices have too much concentrated "natural" sugar and often tea  
and water aren't really what I want.
