The juice in Amtrak sleeping cars was always kind of weird and nasty, as well as being some kind of off brand.  If they don't have it any more, it is no great loss.

The warm diluted juice?? Came out of a generic white box I think. I gave up on it, getting a better taste in the DC which may have been the same, but maybe if kept cool it tastes better.

Food on Via Canadian is a big selling point, local sourced, cooked by chefs on board. Amtrak has Congress doing what it can to give the traveling public the cheapest edible food, hoping some day people can travel coast without eating on Amtrak.[/quote]

Local sourced by way of Sysco... Not that Sysco and Aramark can't provide good food but still. Ha.
