I don't get it, either.  I see all sorts of juices advertising Acai, and a lot of "natural" brands of prepared foods are now colored with Aronia.  I avoid both of them, as I don't care for the flavor.  I'll sometimes buy something colored with Aronia, but I almost always prefer the version that was colored with artificial food dyes.  Aronia has a slightly astringent taste (that's not quite right, but I'm not sure how to describe it) that's strong enough to notice in foods where it's used for a coloring agent.

Acai is more likely to be a major ingredient, and it has a sickly-sweet aftertaste that I don't like.  I don't buy those products.

Why Acai?
Someone must have realized that he could pay some poor 'Third World Ghost' a dollar a bushel for these things!
And that same person turned them into 'mystery health juice' for the 'well to do' folks. Wow.

It's true! Santa Claus uses one on his sleigh! good grief.............
