New Orange Juice brand - TROPICAL SELECT - sold at Shop Rites - "Patriot Brands"

So who is "Patriot Brands" from Warren, NJ, and why are you distributing such a poor 'juice' you call brilliantly "Tropical Select" with the green and orange and white to fit right in with all the others. I have my favorite brand (or if I have time, nothing like TJs or Fairwary's Unpastuerized) - and have had my share of pathetic store brands (Hello, A&P), great private labeled (Natalie's Tropical Island makes for Stop & Shop Premium) - I figured Shop Rite usually picks great new product with 'added value' if you will...- but this swill. Show yourself, "Patriot Brands". That company name sounds shady or just a branding middle man using third-rate juice sources. I'm doing a Benedict Arnold on you, Patriot..., ergo "Tropical Select". (By the way it IS a blend of FCOJ and pasteurized...apparently)...
