Pineapple juice is a wonderful way to add some flavor to your meals, or even serve as a delicious beverage to drink!
However, finding it in stores can be a little tricky. Because it comes in both canned and bottled types, some companies may choose to keep it in different sections of their stores.
So where can you find pineapple juice in grocery stores, and what brands are best? In this article, we’ll cover everything that you need to know!
What Grocery Store Aisle Is Pineapple Juice In?
Pineapple juice can be found in the canned food aisle of the grocery store, near the pineapple chunks and canned pineapple rings.
However, if you’re looking for bottled pineapple juice meant for drinking as a beverage, this can often be found in the fruit juice section near all of the other fruit juices, such as apple juice and grape juice.
This may be located further up or down on the shelf, as its considered to be less popular to drink than other fruit juices. Therefore, retailers may opt to keep the more popular juices around eye-level.
So, if you don’t see it, be sure to look up and down the shelves thoroughly until you find it.

What Are The Best Pineapple Juice Brands?
We surveyed users of Reddit, as well as other lovers of fruit-based drinks in order to learn which pineapple juice brands are loved by consumers.
Ultimately, we found out that the number one choice wasn’t a juice brand at all. Instead, it was recommended to make your own pineapple juice from a fresh pineapple. This is believed to give the absolute best taste that you can possibly get.
However, there were a few brands in particular that stood out among shoppers.
For example, people really love Trader Joe’s fresh pineapple juice, highlighting both the fresh taste and the cheap price – making it an incredible value.
Additionally, Dole’s canned pineapple juice was considered to be a solid general-use pineapple juice for cooking, or even for certain drinks.
Finally, Lakewood Organic is a great choice for those that don’t prefer the taste of Dole’s.
Where Is Pineapple Juice In Walmart?
Walmart carries several different brands of pineapple juice. However, because the store is so large, it can be difficult to find them!
Walmart is well aware of this problem, and has developed tools you can use to locate pineapple juice (and other items) in their store, without having to speak to an associate.
Here, you can see a picture of several different pineapple juice brands within the Walmart app, such as Great Value, Langers, and Dole.
If you look, next to the text that says ‘In Stock’, Walmart’s app will show you what aisle that specific item is on!
The Walmart app ties itself to your local Walmart, so pineapple juice may be located on different aisles from store to store.
For example, you can see in the picture above that pineapple juice in this Walmart is located on aisles 23 and 38.
Download the Walmart app or speak with a Walmart associate, and you’ll have no trouble finding the pineapple juice that you’re looking for!
Frequently Asked Questions About Shopping For Pineapple Juice
Finally, let’s look over some frequently asked questions regarding shopping for pineapple juice at grocery stores.
Why Is Pineapple Juice Often Sold In Cans?
Pineapple juice is often sold in cans, because it is very sensitive to light.
Pineapple juice contains the enzyme bromelain, which breaks down very quickly when exposed to direct light.
Storing it in a can helps it stay fresh and usable for a longer period of time.
Can You Buy Pineapple Juice In A Bottle?
Absolutely! In fact, more and more grocery stores are now offering bottled pineapple juice for purchase.
Typically, you’ll have the option to purchase either in a bottle or a can, depending on your preference.
Today, grocery stores stock more varieties of pineapple juice than ever before.
Although it can be difficult to find (due to both canned and bottled pineapple juice being stocked in different locations), pineapple juice is an excellent ingredient to add to certain meals, or even just to drink.
Find it in the canned food or juice section of the store, and enjoy it!
