Snapple Refreshing Green Tea

Snapple Refreshing Green Tea

A few years ago Snapple switched over to their “All Natural” line. I was completely stoked because it wasn’t that long before then that I discovered that HFCS played a key role in causing the hell that went on in my stomach every night. I probably ingested far more bottles of the new teas than any one human should. It wasn’t too much later that I started to see these cans pop up in gas stations. They were about half the price of the glass bottles, so I was understandably interested in them. I quickly realized that while the glass bottles were sweetened with cane sugar, the cans still used HFCS. I never understood why that was. I can’t imagine that cane sugar is that much more expensive, since a bunch of other companies use it and keep their prices low. Perhaps some people (I’m looking at the folks from the UK) actually preferred the HFCS version and complained. I will never understand that.

This flavor is what companies want you to think that green tea tastes like. In reality it is reminiscent of green tea you would brew at home in only the most distant of ways. There is so much “sugar” in this that it tastes more sweet than anything. It tastes less like green tea than the Arizona tall boys do. If you’re just in the market for an inexpensive sugary drink, perhaps you’ll like this. If you’re actually a fan of green tea I would probably skip over this one and grab one of the Snapple All Natural teas instead.
