      No squeeze needed

      I love orange juice as a drink and tend to purchase it to go with breakfasts most weekends. The only thing that stops me purchasing it sometimes is the cost but I recently took a trip to my Morrison's local store and found there savers orange juice priced at just £1.30 for a 2 litre bottle which I thought was excellent value.

      The orange juice is described as 'a pasteurised blend of orange juice from concentrate and orange fruit from concentrate'. It comes packaged in a large plastic bottle that looks similar to what you buy milk in with a simple label so it doesn't win any glamour contests but does the job perfectly well.

      The juice itself is the usual bright orange colour and a nice and has a nice smooth consistency with no bits. It states on the bottle that one 250ml glass of the juice contains one portion of your five per day fruit and vegetable portions. Obviously this juice like any other fruit juice is high in sugar but like anything it is fine when drank in moderation and as part of a balanced diet.

      I will say that I really enjoyed this orange juice to me it tasted no different than some of the more expensive brands. Served chilled from the fridge it makes a lovely refreshing drink and has a nice zesty taste and not at all too sweet which is what I like from a orange juice. My husband loved the fact it has no bits and the 2 litre bottle went a long way with 8 large glasses being obtained from the one bottle.

      Overall I would certainly recommend and purchase this orange juice again it tastes just as good as some of the fresh or branded juices, acts as one of your 5 per day and is excellent value. 5 stars from me.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A great tasting orange juice

      I am a huge orange juice fan and tend to drink it pretty often. Despite my love of the drink I still dont think this justifies paying around £3 for a single carton when I could instead buy one for a little under the £1 mark.

      I regularly shop in Morrisons and so my brand of juice is the Morrisons value range. The label was once a unattractive ugly black and yellow, much like the Morrisons sign/bags. Now, they have much improved their branding and instead it is a simplistic white with an orange circle with 'Orange Juice' written in. Beside this is a single orange slice, and above 'M Savers' the brand of the drink.

      A bottle contains 2litres. This is enough for about 8 cups worth.

      The taste is very refreshing and you can buy the two usual varieties for about the same price, that is, smooth and 'with bits'. The ingredients are simply: orange juice from concentrate 100%. This seems a little strange to me that the drink is 100% a single ingredient, but other than issues some people might have with certain drinks being 'concentrate', this is reassuring as its rare these days to see simplistic drinks and food types.

      A 200ml serving has 85 calories and there is no Calcium, Vitamin C, Iron and Vitamin A. There is 18g of total carbs.

      I prefer it to other known brands such as Tropicana because it is strong yet not too overpowering. Some drinks can leave a very unusual taste in your mouth afterwards, yet this drink doesn't tend to from my experience. It tastes great and is a great compliment to a breakfast meal or even just as a nice break throughout the day. A 2l carton lasts my family pretty long so long as we aren't a little overzealous, and even then 2 cartons cost less than a single carton of a better known brand. It is great value and truly refreshing.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Good tasting OJ

      A new Morrisons has opened up near to where we live and we are busy trying out all their own branded products. One of the things we have been trying out recently is there own brand of chilled fresh orange juice. We all enjoy a glass of OJ in the morning in our house and we have been drinking Tropicana with the juicy bits, however, this brand can get quite expensive unless it is on offer.

      Morrisons sell their own orange juice for 1.50 for a large 1 litre size carton. Probably the only thing that annoys me about this juice is the fact that I have to cut the carton myself at the corner with a pair of scissors. Sometimes I get it right, other times it just goes wrong and the juice gets everywhere. I would prefer it if it had its own open and shut flap or a knob on the top like the Tropicana does. However, as it is so cheap, I cannot really complain.

      This juice is great tasting and is very refreshing to drink at any time of the day. It is not made from concentrate (which I actually prefer) and the taste is as good as Tropicana is in my honest view. The taste is sweet and smooth and the colour is a good bright orange. There tastes nothing artificial in this juice. It really does taste like it has been freshly squeezed for me.

      I do think this is a quality product for the price and I am happy to continue to recommend it. I will be buying some more next time I go to the supermarket. I give it 5 out of 5 stars.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Value juice with a fresh and pure taste

      I have bought this juice several times over the past year as I tend to do my shop at all different supermarkets. I must say this is the best value juice for the size and taste, at around £1.75 for 2 litres I don't think you can go wrong. The taste is very pure which is how I like it and I defianaty prefer it to the more artificial tasting juices such as tropicana (which is also a great deal more expensive!!) I drink the juice at all times of day and we even had it in our champagne to make bucks fizz at Christmas! Ideal as a beak drink or in a packed lunch to count towards one of your five a day.

      I would definitely suggest you buy this juice if you are looking for a pure tasting orange juice at a reasonble price. It is quit big though and may hog your fridge a lil so probably worth baring that in mind..

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Nice juice

      Now I do like a glass of orange juice with my breakfast in the morning and tend to prefer the cheaper supermarket ones, in the longer life section of drinks as oppose to the fresher ones the chiller cabinet. Now I'm not saying that the chilled ones aren't good and hit the spot when needed, its just that although perhaps it's been a long time since these longer life ones have seen an orange, and have been pasteurised to within an inch of their life, I do prefer the tarter flavours than these economy brands can bring.

      Living further away from a Morrisons than I do from the Tesco's and Sainsbury's, I must admit I don't often get this juice, but when I do I tend to stock up. First off it is really good value at around the 65p mark for a litre. They also sometimes, as mentioned in other reviews two cartons for £1 which is a plus.

      Second the taste suits my palette really well, and I find this a really refreshing flavour. Admittedly the nutrients that might be in the fresher juices might not be here added to the juice which is made from a concentrate, but everything in moderation I say!

      In a 250ml service (roughly1/2 pint) there are 84calories, 18.2g sugar (which is close to 20% of a women's recommended daily sugar intake!) and 0.2g of fat interestingly I can't find any notice of Vitamin C though it must have some surely!!!

      Anyway a good budget buy.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Very good price however, it tastes horrible do not buy!

        I am a big fan of orange juice (with juicy bits) because i enjoy the taste and also it's good for you so it to me is a win win situation. I tried tesco value orange juice and found it tasted very nice and it tasted better than tropicanna does so i thought i would give morrisons a go. It cost around 65 pence for a 1 litre carton of morrisons value orange juice.
        *****packaging*****
        The carton looks very nice, morrisons have adopted a typical carton approach using a very basic reddy orange tone with an image of a large orange on the front. The font is large enough to easily read with it being predominantly white.
        *****content*****
        The orange juice has a weak orange peel scent and also unfortunatly has a very weak taste to it which is disapointing, also the bits are very weak and are not very juicy also there are not many of them so do not purchase this if you are a fan of the bits like i am.
        *****ratings*****
        cost : 10/10 for the size of the carton and the amount of juice you get 65pence is brilliant.
        packaging : 8/10 it looks very sophisticated and a very smart design.
        juice : 5/10 although it is cheap the taste is horrible.
        overall : 6/10 very cheap, however it is a horrible orange juice do not purchase it.

        Thank you for reading this please rate, comment and friend.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A great drink

        ==Morrison's Value Pure Orange Juice==

        Seeing as we are watching every penny at the moment I have been trying a few more of the products from the Morrison's Value range and this orange juice is one of them. At 65p per litre is represents very good value for money compared with the other branded pure orange juice which can often come in at around £1.50 p for a litre.

        The juice is not from concentrate so can really be compared to the premium juices such as Tropicana juice which is found in the chilled fridge in the supermarket. This juice is in a square box like carton and situated down the alcoholic drinks isle at the end with all the other mixers.

        The packaging of this pure orange juice is very basic and really what you would expect when buying a Morrison's value product as the box is bright yellow with green and white writing on the front. It doesn't look great although I feel slightly better than the blue and white stripes of the Tesco value brand. The carton does however cut well and means that pouring out a glass every morning is simple and easy to do.

        The juice itself is a lovely yellow colour and although not thick or with fresh bits of orange has a lovely orange smell to it and looks really appealing. The drink is best served as cold as possible and I always like to drop a large cube of ice in to give it more of a bite.

        I was concerned that this pure orange juice would be too sharp and a little bit more acidic than the more expensive juices but this wasn't the case. I find Tesco's value pure orange juice very sharp to taste but this brand has a sweeter and smoother taste and gives the morning mouth a great freshness and certainly quenches any thirst I have.

        I have been buying this juice now for a good number of weeks and am really happy with it. I find the price really good compared to others and although it is the cheapest you can get doesn't taste as bad as others I have tried such as the Tesco Value juice. I would highly recommend trying it and for the price I can't complain so I feel a score of 5 out of 5 stars is well deserved.


        I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you

        Many thanks for taking the time to read.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Great taste, definite try!

        -Introduction-

        Morrisons value OJ comes in a 1litre yellow carton, with 'Orange Juice' written in white across the front. We often get these on offer 2litres for a £1. Its really great value for money. We used to buy the slightly more expensive ones, but have totally converted to Morrisons orange juice now.

        -Positives-

        THe price is just fantastic! I drink quite a lot of orange juice and its an expensive habit when your drinking Tropicana! At around 60p for a litre, you can't go wrong!

        The taste is well, great! Its orangey and tangy, without that sickly sweetness I dislike in some of the more expensive brands. It is not watery AT ALL, even though it is from concentrate.

        It is a proper orange juice colour! When I look at some of the cheap Orange juice brands, they seem to glow unnaturally (think Sunny D!). This is definitely not healthy and I'd rather go without! But this orange juice is a lovely colour and smells, well, like orange juice!

        None of the stupid ring pull designs, which break off or leak! Just a nice simple snip off the end job. Easy and simple!

        -Negatives-

        Packaging may put some people off, very cheap looking.

        It does not have 'bits' which I know many people like.

        -Conclusion-

        Great taste and price. Definitely worth a try for your purses sake!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A great juice totally recommended

        I have found some orange juices can be very bitter or just generally not nice, and this has made me wary of cheap and value brand orange juices, but I tried the Morrisons value range orange juice one day, and found it to be very nice indeed.

        The Morrisons orange juice comes in a plastic bottle, much like a milk bottle and is about 2 pints of juice. The plastic is clear, and the lid is orange. There is a label on the bottle that says what it is, and has the nutritional information on the back of the label.

        The juice itself tastes like ... well orange juice lol. It is a smooth orange juice, which has no bits in it. There is no sharpness to this juice, and no bitterness either. I have tasted more expensive brand name juices that have no difference to this juice, in a blindfold test, you really would not be able to tell the difference between the two juices. The juice has quite a long sell by date, although I usually don't get to keep it that long, it is usually gone within an hour or two of getting it home!

        This juice costs around 60p ( it seems to change each week!) which I think is a total bargain when the more expensive brands cost anything up to £2 a carton for the same amount of juice or less. This is one of the value range items that I really do recommend as it truly tastes no different to the top brand ranges, and it even better than half the price of the major brands.

        This juice is availabe in all Morrisons supermarkets usually found in the milk and butter aisle. It is usually well stocked, so you should be able to get a bottle or two of this whenever you want to. I can find no faults with this orange juice, so 5 out of 5 from me.

        Well worth trying

        Morrisons Value Orange Juice

        Description: Manufacturer: Morrisons / Type: fruit Juice



        Anyone who has read some of my earlier reviews (thanks so much, I really appreciate all the reads, rates and comments!) will know by now that I am a big fan of the supermarket ranges which save me money by spending less on posh packaging.

        There was a time when I would walk past the "cheap looking" brands, assuming that the ones with fancy packaging would be better. Since then, I have been pleasantly surprised by how good some of the items in these ranges actually are. The packaging only gets thrown in the bin, so does it really make sense to spend extra money on it? I think not - especially when we are all trying to save money and spend less. I prefer to spend my money on other things wherever possible!

        I am also trying to be healthy and lose the few extra pounds that I gained over Christmas. I am trying to ensure that I eat five portions of fruit or vegetables each day too, which isn't always easy. Fruit juice forms one of those portions and can be a good way to up your intake.

        A one litre carton cost me just £0.57 which was almost half the price of some of the competing brands.

        The juice is from concentrate so never going to be as tasty as Tropicana but for the price, is surprisingly good. It is a rich orange juice and not thin or watery as I had expected. It has an extremely refreshing taste which is slightly tart. I don't like orange juice to be too sweet so this one was just what I would choose.

        Now don't get me wrong, there are certain to be other brands which taste better than this one, but for the price, it is a delicious and refreshing fruit juice that does the job perfectly well. I have also used it to make an orange sauce (served with duck if you are interested.....it was delicious!) and found it to be great for that too. If you are looking for ways to save money, you should certainly consider giving this product a try, and don't forget, it is one of your five a day - result!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A really nice orange juice!

        The other day whilst in Morrisons I decided to get myself a drink. I was so thirsty and basically gagging! Now I spotted this in the 1 litre version which retailed at 56p but I decided to go for 3 small cartons which were priced at 37p. Noticing they had straws with them I thought they'd quench my thirst! The straws are simply clear, thin bendy things and nothing special though but do a job!

        The Packaging:

        Well whether buying the 1 litre version or these 3x200ml they all look the same really. The only difference being of course is that the individual sizes come in a clear plastic wrapper holding all three together and of course come with straws like I've already mentioned!

        So the carton is bright yellow and has only dark green writing on it. On the front of the carton I'm told it's Morrisons 'Value' Orange Juice 'From Concentrate' and the size is stated and there is an at a glance nutritional chart on there. Other information ion the carton includes ingredients being listed (Orange juice from concentrate 100%), a full nutritional chart is displayed, I'm told how to store the product and contact details for Morrisons are given. Make no bones about it this is cheap packaging but you can't go wrong with 100% orange juice can you?'.....

        The Drink:

        No you can't go wrong with this at all actually. It is what it is and that's a light orange in colour flat opposed to fizzy juice. It's oranges and that's it. It's naturally sweet, a little bit sharp but tastes like it's made from very nice oranges indeed and has a really fresh and lively feel to it. Thin in texture, no bits, like I say it is what it is and it's a highly pleasant and refreshing, tasty juice! Simples!

        Nutrional Information Per 200ml:

        Calories: 85
        Sugar: 18.8g
        Fat: Trace
        Saturates: Trace
        Salt: Trace

        Only to be found in Morrisons stores.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A good choice ;-p

          I really love orange juice but it can be expensive so we but Morrisons own brand regularly as it is so cheap at 56p for a litre carton!

          The container it comes in is a plastic square recyclable one with a plain white and yellow label saying 'Value Orange Juice From Concentrate' and is made in the UK and there is usually a good few weeks on the use by date which is printed on the bright orange plastic lid...

          It doesn't look expensive but the taste isn't much different than some brands I have tasted although it isn't as thick and as much pulp in - but some people prefer smooth anyway.

          If I had to describe the texture I would say is it a really rich flavoured orange juice with plenty of concentrate in it but it's not too sweet if you prefer your juice sweeter?

          The Value drink is rather smooth I think and is very tasty and really good for a natural vitamin C source too :)

          The guideline daily amount if you have a 250ml glass full is 5.3% of your calories which are 105 per glass. The sugars are really high at 22.7g but no fat or salt which is cool...

          It is pasteurised and needs to be kept in the fridge as well as used within four days once opened.

          The juice tastes lovely chilled and you can make ice cube and ice lollies from it as well which are really yummy!

          Value is a really good alternative to more expensive option for those on a budget like us and I don't feel I am losing out by not having a famous name as it's all made from oranges anyway...

          For a really healthy change from fizzy pop I would say try it, I think it's worth four stars!
