Welch Grape Juice Now Kosher ....Kedem Lowers It's Prices

I went into two different supermarkets in Monsey and noticed thousands of Kedem Grape Juice boxes with prices reduced to half the normal price .....

What was happening? 

Was Kedem finally having some rachmonis on the hard working people with large families????
In my  naivete, I thought that Kedem finally decided to give back to the community ....by lowering their prices!

Nope ... no such luck...

I asked the managers of the supermarkets what Kedem's cheshben was?
Ahah! 
They were laughing their heads off ... and whispered a big secret to me .... shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh..... 
"Welch got into the kosher market and the OU will now give a hechsher on the grape juice!"

What??????????????

So the  truth is that  Kedem that dominates the Kosher Grape Juice market, is freaking out that Welch Grape Juice, that is organic with no sulfates, and very reasonably priced, will now be an alternative to the frum families!

To think that all these years they were ripping off the arumehleit...

Pass me some of that juice ,.....im'me'chayeh

It would be strange to buy Welch's Grape Juice for kiddush and arba kosos, no?

Along with Polly-O cheese, which is less than half the cost of anything offered by a Jewish company. I also hear that KRAFT cheese products will also be getting a hechsher. Woo Hooo....no more monopoly and long live competition in the good old capitalist USA

There goes the kosher monopoly and who knows maybe even yiddeshkeit for some of these people that just were frum for the money

You know that Grape juice was never used for Kiddush or Arba Kosos until the Zailimer Rov gave the hechsher to Kedem And wrote on it ' kosher for kiddush & arba kosos". Until then only the conservative Jews used Grape juice for these things. ALL Orthodox Jews used wine only (You remember the concord grape wine -extra sweet!!!).
Do your home work about this. You'll be shocked.

It would be alot stranger to spend double on something u can get for half the cost.

Does this Welch grape juice taste as good as the Kedem black/red one though?

First of all, qt one point Welchs had a hechsher. Second, tastes nust like Kedem, they both use concord grapes...
