Today at lunch I decided to branch out from my usual Snapple Diet Peach Tea. I've only seen the Snapple Diet Plum-A-Granate Tea in a few of the stores I go to regularly, so when I had the opportunity to get it, I snatched it up. A bit of background: I love plums and its one fruit that is always in stock in my house (yes, even when they're not necessarily quite in season). I'm also a big fan of pomegranates, although I eat them less because they're such a pain to eat. For those reasons, I was quite excited to try this tea.
When I opened it and took a sip, however, I was not so enthused. The first thing I noticed was how sweet this drink was. Overly sweet. Almost like you took the fruits and added a ton of sugar. Also, the flavor profile wasn't too wonderful, sweetness aside. The plum essence was more like an overripe plum, and I couldn't detect much pomegranate.
Each 8-ounce serving of Snapple Diet Plum-A-Granate Tea provides 5 calories. The ingredients include filtered water, citric acid, tea, potassium citrate, natural flavors, sucralose, and acesulfame K.
I found out that this flavor has been discontinued - which might account for why I rarely see it in the stores anymore. And since I really just didn't like the taste that much, it won't be missed by me. I shelled out $1.50 for a bottle in an overpriced cafeteria, which at first I figured was a reasonable amount to pay for what could be hydrating and delicious, but turned out instead to be a waste of money .
