I'm not a regular TJ drinker, but do go through phases where Bloody Marys are my pre-dinner cocktail of choice. So I usually have a carton or two of passata, usually sourced at Lidl or Aldi, in the back of a cupboard.

Some of the Juices I'd had in the past are just too thin, so I find this to be the perfect consistency, diluted by the rest of the ingredients, but you could just add water to thin it to your preferred thickness.

Not sure it's even got salt in it, but that's easily added.
So, checked Lidl passata, first thing duckduck came up with was:
<<LIDL passata smells of poo>> from December 2019.
Guess I need to let that info evaporate from my brain before I give it a try.

So, I checked today. Indeed it seems the Migros tomato juice I enjoyed all my life (I used to love that stuff when a child already) is gone!

I figured - in the name of research for VenusC - I try the Sarasay. It seems thinner than the one they used to sell, which tasted much richer. Also it contains sugar - wtf? - yet definitely not enough salt .... but that's me and no problem to add while getting all the pepper and chilli into it as well. They label it explicitly = well visible with "vegetable juice" Someone please tell Migros about tomatoes? It's drinkable but not as nice as I want it to be and I won't buy it anymore for that reason and because of it's extra sugar content.

I did not see the Alnatura one. Maybe my Migros is too small to carry it. It's not in the cooler is it? I wouldn't like that as I like to store it for when I'm in the mood.

So yes, VenusC, tomato juice has become a problem in Switzerland. And from this moment on I will keep a close eye on suggestions on this thread as well. I mean seriously, this beats the brown sugar problem by far!
I don't remember the Sarasay lebel mentioning "vegetable juice" and usually I do check the labels. I knew it contains some added sugar but the rest is tomato juice....might be wrong or they changed the recipe?It doesn't bother me tbh. When I cook for my kids sometimes I add a bit of sugar anyway because they wouldn't eat anything otherwise. I know all the theory, it's bad.

Yes, alnatura is definitely healthier, but de gustibus and all that....When I was a kid I drank tomato juice made by my grandmothers, the kind with salt and even some oil at the top of the bottle. Home made stuff, not made for fancy cocktails but for soups and stews etc. So I'm not very picky but I did have to adjust my cooking and habits to please my little people.

I think curley's just making the point that technically tomato is a fruit, not a vegetable, therefore the label's not strictly correct.

The label isn't suggesting that it's got additional vegetable juice added, just that that is what it contains.

Consider it a FWP, but why there's no tomato juice in shops? Coop sells a concoction of red goo, migros - I think they have something that resembles tomato juice. That's it. Innocent only make stuff that contains oranges. Please spare me the recipes of how to make one at home - I would like the convenience of simply grabbing one off the shelf and drinking it.
Back in the old days ('when I was a young lass/lad' song) we used to buy unconcentrated juice which contained: tomatoes and salt. No celery, challots and other bayleaf, pepper, olive oil palaver.
So, if anyone knows of a place, please let me know.

Im a big tomato juice fan and I would suggest to try this one:
