They r starting to sell together with another huge company (which I forgot the name) it’s kosher u can now buy in boro park at breadberry. The plan is to bring down the crazy price of grape juice, and of course sell bigMarch 30, 2016 3:39 am at 3:39 am #1144805
At one time, Welch’s made a kosher run.
Manischewitz also at one time sold grape juice.
I doubt it will be significantly cheaper than Kedem. I have often seen non Jews buying Kedem grape juice. They make an excellent grape juice and you can get it on sale for $3 for a 64oz. bottle.March 30, 2016 4:17 am at 4:17 am #1144807
@daasyochid. U r right I don’t know why I didnt see that beforeMarch 30, 2016 4:35 am at 4:35 am #1144808

Grape juice is expensive? It’s cheaper than orange juice, and just about any other fruit juice.March 30, 2016 10:36 am at 10:36 am #1144809
I don’t think it’s typically cheaper than OJ, certainly not than apple juice. It’s certainly possible to get it at a similar price to OJ, though.March 30, 2016 11:31 am at 11:31 am #1144810JosephParticipant
Grape juice is a shelf item, which should costs less, while orange juice is a refrigerated item.March 30, 2016 3:24 pm at 3:24 pm #1144811
Kosher grape juice requires hashgacha temidis; orange juice does not.
Also, a high percentage of the volume of orange juice is bugs, so it should be cheaper.March 30, 2016 4:51 pm at 4:51 pm #1144812apushatayidParticipant

What is your favorite tasting grape juice brand?
I’m so used to Kedem that anything else tastes unusual.March 30, 2016 5:29 pm at 5:29 pm #1144814
How many brands of kosher grape juice are there?
Off the top of my head, I can think of Kedem, Rashi (do they still make that?) Nature’s Own, Manischewitz/Welch’s, Hadar, and Tam Pri “grape juice beverage”.March 31, 2016 3:10 am at 3:10 am #1144815147Participant
I know nothing about grape juice, quite simply, because I cannot medically drink grape juice. I can only drink wine, which works fine for me.March 31, 2016 4:14 am at 4:14 am #1144816The QueenParticipant
The only grape juice we buy is Kedem. The first time I drank a different brand was on a trip to Israel, and the taste was awful. (except that an Israeli guest we hosted recently, thinks our Kedem is awful tasting and his Israeli brand is delish.)March 31, 2016 12:52 pm at 12:52 pm #1144817yaakov doeParticipant
I doubt that Welch will sell for less than $3 for 64oz which has been the price at Stop & Shop since Chanukah. Of course you can pay more elsewhere.March 31, 2016 1:47 pm at 1:47 pm #1144818

147, Curious is it because of the sugar content of grape juice or something else.
Please dont respond if you dont want to..April 1, 2016 2:11 am at 2:11 am #1144820147Participant
2scents:- Nothing whatsoever to do with sugar. I drink plenty sweet wine. It is solely to do with acid content, and for same reason hence that I don’t drink orange juice.
Grape Juice is nothing short of a fruit juice full of acid, but alcohol in wine kills the acid.April 1, 2016 2:59 am at 2:59 am #1144821

Huh? The pH of wine is not much different from grape juice; both are acidic.April 3, 2016 4:57 pm at 4:57 pm #1144824mik5Participant
Got 2 big bottles of the Welch’s grape juice. Will be trying it out for the arba kosos on Pesach, be’ezras Hashem.April 4, 2016 3:39 am at 3:39 am #1144825

When Welch’s came out with kosher grape juice years ago, there was quite a fuss because it was a non-Jewish firm taking away business from a Jewish firm. Manischewitz had a from-concentrate grape juice a while ago that I thought tasted pretty bad. Apparently it was a failure, because it was closed out at a low price. This new Manischewitz-Welch’s mixed marriage will probably taste pretty good since Welch’s has been making grape juice for a long long time.April 4, 2016 7:25 am at 7:25 am #1144829takahmamashParticipant
We got used to the Israeli grape juice, but Chetzi Chinam actually sells the big bottles of Kedem cheaper than the Israeli grape juice – so we switched back to Kedem.April 4, 2016 11:11 am at 11:11 am #1144830YesOrNoParticipant
Anybody ever taste Soloveitchik Grape Juice?
It is sold in Israel Non-Mevushal in glass bottles.
Tastes sweet, fresher and lighter than KedemApril 4, 2016 2:28 pm at 2:28 pm #1144831

Grape juice may be used, if necessary. The Brisker Rav used grape juice. So did the Chazon Ish.April 4, 2016 6:11 pm at 6:11 pm #1144833apushatayidParticipant
“Will be trying it out for the arba kosos on Pesach, be’ezras Hashem.”
I would try it out beforehand, just in case.April 4, 2016 11:32 pm at 11:32 pm #1144834
I can’t imagine it would be so awful that he couldn’t drink four cups of it.April 5, 2016 2:53 am at 2:53 am #1144835charliehallParticipant
“You have to use wine. “
I exclusively use the watered down Kedem “light” grape juice. The label specifically says kosher for arba kosot.April 5, 2016 3:26 am at 3:26 am #1144836
Do you ask grape juice bottle labels all of your shailas?
I mean, they’re saying it’s considered grape juice and according to some opinions etc., but it should be a posek who determines whether you should use wine (as many poskim, including R’ Moshe, hold) or don’t need to, not the Kedem company.
