Everything you mention in your list is found in the refrigerated section of the store. The grape juice is usually found in the juice aisle with all the refrigerate after opening juices. Try looking there. And since you are not feeling well, try something with an antioxidant punch like cherry juice, pomegranate juice or cranberry. I buy the unsweetened (super tart) versions, but you can buy them sweetened as well. I hope you are feeling fully well in no time!

Yes, but I was going to work and wanted a cold juice, not a 2-liter jug of room temperature juice. And we don't have a Jewish or kosher section here. In the few stores that do, they don't include Kedeem juices - they don't even include macaroons.

I just bought Welch's grape juice at Walmart last week. I bought one of the bigger containers, but they also have the small bottles in the refrigerators in the checkout area.

NYC Refugee, what part of the country are you in, just out of curiosity?

The Costco near us (Northeast) has Newman's Own unsweetened organic grape juice, in two-packs of 48 (?) ounce bottles. That's a lot of grape juice. Sometimes they also carry Kedem at the same time. Sometimes they don't have Newman's, but they do have Kirkland grape juice.

I will mention that at my local supermarket where we do much of our shopping, it is curiously hard to find jugs of grape juice. I once spent 15 minutes trying to find it. There was an aisle of bottled juices but no "pure" grape juice, just several varieties of Welch's with other stuff added -- cran-grape, sweetened grape, blueberry-grape. Maybe they were sold out that week. They also usually have frozen concentrate grape juice. Sometimes you can find it in the refrigerated section near the milk & other perishable juices.

It's worth noting that non-organic grapes have a fair amount of chemicals in them. If you drink a couple of large glasses of conventional grape juice, you may be ingesting a ton of pesticides etc. Organic is a lot more expensive, but probably worth it. Just a thought.

No problem here. My husband and I did pretend we were drinking wine over the Thanksgiving.

I had this problem several times at my local store. Lots of "juice drink" which is mostly water and corn syrup. Actual grape juice was hard to find a couple of times.

Alex - I'll look. Thanks.

Peanuts - I'm in DE. Inland (yes, it matters). At the beach, which is a 40 min drive, selection improves and prices skyrocket. Here in the more agricultural bit, selection can be limited. And very sort of mainstream American. We have no Costco on the peninsula, BJ's is 40 miles easily, Trader Joe's is 2 hours, and so on. Thanks for the organic thoughts, I will keep in mind.

tiff - "drink" is not juice (and we know it) and I also didn't want chemicals and acids on a sensitive stomach, which let most of the blends out.

I've had farmer's market grape juice and it was divine, but not shelf stable. It went cloudy in very little time. I guess you just have to drink it.

Many 100% juices have other fruit juices mixed in, simetimes sugar is added - mostly to improve the taste. Lots of the 100% juice blends contain mostly apple juice, which is fairly low in vitamins, so look for juices that have more of the reds, purples and orange fruits. So - read the label.
I think one of the few 100% grape are made by Welch's, Kirkland (Costco), Newman's Own and Knudsen.

BTW:
One of the healthiest juices is 100% cranberry

What type of sick are you? I know you said no acid but orange juice is the best to drink when sick with most colds or even pineapple. Coconut juice is supposed to be good too
