To be fair, with WIC their options for cereal are limited to a handful.
in NJ they removed kemach crisp rice/corn flakes
please prove me wrong

Don't they allow Corn Chex?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

In NY they just added Taanug. I wish they would add Unger's - the best quality of all the kosher brands (it's Malt-o-Meal special run with a sticker).

Not sure this is true. IIRC they use a different type of grape which contains less sugar.
They both use Concord grapes, the only difference in ingredients is that the light lists water and the regular doesn't.

They’re also usually the same price.

As I pointed out. Also the non-lite has water added (INGREDIENTS: GRAPE JUICE, JUICE FROM CONCENTRATE...). IINM only the glass bottles have no water whatsoever (and is not Mevushal) which is why I give that one at the Seder to my kids that don't drink wine.

Granted there is concentrate but the light lists plain water in addition. IINM that is the singular difference between regular and light, the water added.

-1. As per Kedem, they use a more sour grape for the light and then they add more water. The rational is that more water is necessary to get its ideal taste (due to its sourness) and the added water is considered "limashviach taamo".

Very interesting, I’ve not heard this before. Where can I see this information?

Grape concentrate added does not mean that it has water. It means that they sweetened it for consistency but in order to avoid adding sugar they used concentrate.
The thing with the hamster is that running on the wheel is actually what it is trying to do.

But there still seems to be some disagreement as to it’s Halachic status

Is "juice from concentrate" the same as "grape concentrate"?

I read "juice from concentrate" to be reconstituted juice.

Why would they do this differently in the plastic bottles than they do in the glass bottles?
