(WTNH) — A drink considered a breakfast staple for decades is apparently on the decline.

According to Business Insider, more and more Americans are turning away from orange juice. Nutrition experts and health bloggers have been rallying against orange juice in the recent years calling it a scam.

Nutritionally, orange juice is not much better for consumers than a glass of soda. Sales of orange juice have been down 13 percent in the past four years.

Orange groves in Florida are feeling the impact, the sunshine state is on track for the fifth straight season of declines in orange output, representing the worst decline in more than a century, according to Bloomberg.
