It seems like the orange juice thats been sitting in the fridge for awhile always tastes sweeter than the juice just brought from the grocery store.

Can juice ripen in the container ?

Packaged fruit juice actually contain artificial flavour and sweetener (even the one which claims 100% fruit juices). It gets more sweeter because of Added Fructose. They can be very harmful if taken in high quantity (juice left for more days in container).

For healthier life eat real fruit rather than the packaged juice.
