Here's one bright spot for Florida with this awful flu season--orange juice sales are up big time according to multiple reports.
Fox News says that sales have jumped significantly for the first time in years because of increased demand from people potentially trying to avoid or fight the flu. The Business Insider says that in January there was a bump up in sales for the first time since 2013--and that OJ sales are down a whopping 50% from 2001.
The Washington Post goes on to hypothesize that the years of declining sales comes likely as a result of people who've begun watching their sugar intake.
