Couple caught selling fake orange juice for 20THB

Be careful drinking orange juice in Thailand…

This couple were caught faking fake juice from water, sugar and orange colouring.

One customer became suspicious after tasting the terrible concoction and then filmed the Vietnamese couple brewing it outside their home in Saraburi.

Pictures show them mixing water from a hose with orange food colouring and ‘saccharin’ – a sugar substitute that is about 300 times sweeter.

They sold bottles of their fake orange juice for 20THB – shifting between 40 and 50 a day.
