9. 'Juice' Drinks

Whether it's Kool-Aid or it's cheaper cousin Flav.R.Aid, black people love juice drinks. I use the word loosely because it's not really Tropicana or Welch's they're tossing back. It's flavored water. But they call it "juice" anyway. Guess you don't want your kids to think you're cheap.

But how can you hate flavor mixes? It's 15/$1 and they make an entire jug! You can even buy individual sips on the corner for dime or a quarter usually. Sometime even called 'Dime Jugs' or 'Quarter Juice'.

And of course, to sell to the black community you have to have every flavor they want from every fruit known to man. Watermelon, Strawberry, Banana, Kiwi. I even saw a Kamquat bottle once. But I was too scared to try it. It was an unnatural green color. I think it has something do with color codes in their outfits, but this claim has not been proven yet.
