Don’t Mess with My Snapple*

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.

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 82 now.
