    The value is in how easy it is for a frazzled dad to do something good for himself while getting the kids ready for school, without having to prep ingredients and clean a juicer.

    It’s in how the busy professional who needs more greens in her life gets App reminders to press Produce Packs before they expire, so she doesn’t waste the hard-earned money she spent on them.

Am I cynical in thinking that he probably thought, "I'll make the one getting the kids off to school the dad and the professional the mom. That will show how progressive Juicero is. That'll show them.

Also, no WAY the mom is ever described as "frazzled," these days. Imagine he reversed the genders in those two paragraphs. He'd be crucified.

Another awesome quote:

    Would you please explain the Math here….

    A family of 5, two juice pouches per head, implies 300 pouches per month.

    At $7 per pouch, my juice budget is $2100 per month…

    Think about it. $2100 per month as juice budget (many articles are using the irrelevant capital cost of $400).

    This solves the nation’s nutrition problem, how? (I’m glad you didn’t mention this would eliminate the world nutrition problem.)

they're stupendously expensive. And they've got this giant dumb thing on the counter:

And of course it was designed by Yves Behar, the one guy to make an uncomfortable Herman Miller chair.

I guess what I'm saying is you adding cynicism to this endeavor is like spitting in the ocean.
