If by "now" you mean "for at least the last 20 years" then, yes.

They also make orange/pineapple/banana and orange/pineapple/strawberry juice. You can drink this stuff straight, or add rum as desired.

First saw it in 1985, in my college dorm vending machine. My then-boyfriend loved it.

I remember it from my childhood. Circa late Fifties.

Ping, Pong and Pili.

Pineapple-grapefruit, pineapple-orange and pineapple-lime.

I like the pineapple banana one. I rarely do fruit juice, I prefer to blow my carbs on the whole fruit so I get the fiber as well, but the pineapple banana mixes really well with rum, and I don't have to deal with yucky sour mix. It is great if you freeze it in an ice cube tray and make rum slushies with them.

Speaking of which, MOIDALIZE, can you recommend me any new product that might "help" my hamburger?

All pretty irrelevant. It's been established in recent threads that all fruit juice is garbage unworthy of human consumption - I mean, it contains sugar and often - brace yourself - juices other than what's on the label! They should ban the crap!

I used to be able to get one called orange-ruby red but they stopped making it.

I wish they sold different flavors of OJ frozen in cans. I'd buy those more often, sometimes just the thought of lugging another heavy bottle of Tropicana Whatever into the house kills the thought.

I hear they make a drink made of wheat and grass. What's up with that?

Hawaii's Own makes a frozen concentrate version that's ok if you're desperate, however the proportions are a little off so it doesn't exactly taste like POG. It's not labeled POG. They just list the three fruits on the label.

Okay, this is going to sound weird, but when I visited my sister in Mexico, she stopped at a juice bar in the Mexico City subway system and insisted I try a big glass of .... alfalfa juice.

I dubiously put the grass-green beverage to my lips, commended my soul to Og, and sipped.

Oh. My. God.

It was fantastic - like drinking the smell of fresh-cut grass on a hot summer day. Cold, slightly lemony, amazingly refreshing - I get now why alfalfa hay is cow crack.

OJ's in jail for the rest of his life. He don't get no tang, bitter or otherwise.

OK, so they've been mixing fruit juices forever.

But I'm pretty damn sure they will never, ever mix fruit juice with vegetable juice. That's just crazy talk.

My Mom actually used to make that concoction when I was a kid. I just now emailed her for the recipe and will get back to you when she replies.

I feel the OPs pain. I've only recently discovered how good pineapple can be on pizza.

Oh, yes. The acidity of the pineapple cuts the grease of the cheese. Pepperoni-and-pineapple is my default pizza order.

We always called it MOIDALIZING our juice.

I guess we'll have to stop now.

My vote goes to pineapple-orange-banana, straight up.
And you people better lay off of MOIDALIZE. If he blows, somebody might get hoit.

Dole used to make a really kick ass berry juice a few years ago. Of course, they stopped selling it right after I found it.

I guess I am the only one who hadn't heard of it either?

Is it marketed as just "orange-pineapple juice" or is there some clever name?

Orange/pineapple/banana & rum is a wonderful eye-opener on a lazy Sunday.

Yep. Frozen juice section at the grocery store. You have to add water.
Probably fancy names as well but this is how I buy it.

I do have to admit that the story of zombie orange juice does turn my stomach a bit.

I can't believe anyone considers orange-pineapple juice as something new. We had it back in the 50s, and it's still around, in every supermarket. Bottled, not frozen. And orange-grapefruit too. And now they have orange juice with 50% calories, that doesn't taste watered down.

No, they have it non-frozen in cartons and bottles, too, right next to the regular OJ. I've bought it that way for 20+ years.

Pineapple orange juice has been around since at least my first tenure at Sears. But I shall not mock you, for it is a wonderful thing and my native dickery is tempered by my happiness for you.

What's sad is that nobody makes banana milk any more. I blame the Turks.
