Don’t Mess with My Snapple*

Published February 7, 2018 by Nan Mykel

I’ve been infected by a history complete with crimes against the good of the public, like the buyout/death of alcohol-powered vehicles long ago, the man who  holds the patent for a life-saving drug whose imposed cost has put it out of reach for the 99 percenters,  and yes, even the recent theft of tips for underpaid waitservers. I won’t go into details, you can find it all out elsewhere on the internet. What I am fearful of is that the giant drink conglomerate that just bought out Snapple will do away with its diet brands (5 and 10-caloric Snapple).  I had finally found a non-carbonated low-calorie drink (such as a lemonade-tea version) that I could drink for 10 calories a 12-ounce cup, and a 5-caloric equivalent of a peach-tea combo.  My first thought was that Snapple was being bought to keep it from rivaling the larger diet drink companies.  The only Snapple I could find at my grocery yesterday was the 120-calorie version. Surely a buyout can’t stop production so soon!  It just put the fear in me and brought out my paranoia, in addition to everything else that’s happening nationwide.
