Putting your taste buds to the test with orange juice

Ever wonder if saving money on generic brand foods is actually worth it? All week long we're putting your taste buds to the test.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- All week long we're comparing and taste testing to see if your taste buds can tell the difference between the most expensive and least expensive products.

Consumer reporter Bill McGinty hit the streets the lead the charge and save you money on one of breakfast's most essential items... orange juice!

McGinty set up shop taste testing with two different orange juices. The first was fresh squeezed Tropicana which costed $3.99. The second was simply the cheapest OJ he could find and costed $2.19.

So, could kids and adults really tell the difference? And is the Tropicana worth the extra $1.80 more?

"To be honest, they're very close," said one taste-tester. "No difference."

In the end, four people picked Tropicana, one person said there was no difference and one person liked the cheapest best.
