Orange Juice Experiences A Boost In Sales Thanks To Brutal Flu Season

For the first time in almost five years, in the midst of an especially brutal flu season, orange juice has experienced its first sales spike. According to a report by the Wall Street Journal, sales for the drink rose 0.9% to 38.66 million gallons in the four weeks leading up to January twentieth. Since 2001, the US orange juice market has plummeted by 50% as health and diet trends have shifted away from the drink. While Americans are eager to cut calories and sugar from their diet by avoiding orange juice most of the year, flu season has many people returning to old traditions in an effort to avoid the illness. However, according to the National Institutes of Health, there is no evidence that drinking orange juice protects people from contracting the flu.
