Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, August 10, 2014

Pepsi is betting that the tangy, sweet juice from cashew apples can be the next coconut water or acai juice. Farmers in India are a bit baffled by Pepsi's interest in their cashew apples. While the cashew is a favorite nut worldwide, the so-called apple from which each nut grows is almost always left on the ground or thrown away, where it begins to ferment within 24 hours of picking. And the juice by itself, while highly nutritious, is abundant in tannins that impart an acrid taste. "I thought it was a little strange that they wanted to buy cashew apples -- but I didn't like to question a new source of money," said Sanjay Pandit, who cultivates about 300 cashew trees in the village of Kondye.
