Snapple Refresh Noni Berry Juice Drink Review

Snapple  Refresh Noni Berry Juice Drink

On my last grocery shopping excursion, Snapple Refresh Noni Berry Juice Drink leaped into my grocery cart and made quite a scene by screaming, "Take Me Home NOW" over and over again. It seems this low calorie juice drink really wanted me to try it. Well - who was I to argue, especially since I was curious to find out what "noni juice" tastes like, and more importantly, according to various voodoo priests and suspect internet sources, it's the next cure for whatever ails you because of it's high antioxidant levels.

Well, I don't know if it will help make your body any stronger but Snapple Noni sure tastes good. It's not too sweet and the flavor is sort of like an apple and pear mix. In other words, generic since just about every "juice drink" has 1 or both of these juices mixed in, but this was still good for the drinkin'. Since the name is "Snapple Refresh" I waited 10 minutes to see if I would feel ... refreshed ... and well, I was still tired from my long day, and I still wanted more than anything to go take a bath and curl up with a good book - I'm reading City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare and it's double awesome sauce!!

But I digress - in short, this left me feeling just as refreshed as any other beverage does, but I really liked the flavor and I really liked that each 1 cup serving of Snapple Refresh Noni Berry Juice Drink provides only 15 calories and 1 gram of sugar.

Snapple Green Tea Metabolism (Original) Review

Snapple Green Tea Metabolism (Original)As I was headed to a workout, I stopped at a gas station to grab something for my car. I decided that I would pick up something to hydrate with - and that I could review! As I scanned the available options, the clean but elegant label of a bottle of Snapple Green Tea Metabolism caught my eye. We have already reviewed the Snapple Red Tea and White Tea, so it was high time that the Green tea got it's time to shine in the spotlight.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 8 ounces
Calories: 60
Total Fat: 0%
Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 5 mg, 0%
Carbohydrates: 15 grams
Fiber: 0%
Sugars: 15 grams
Protein: 0 grams

Thankfully, the bottle was already chilled, so I had about half the bottle on my way to the gym, and it made me go mmm! The tea flavor really comes through with NONE of the bitterness associated with green tea extract. It is mildly sweet - a little sweeter than most flavored waters, but certainly nowhere near sweet tea. This Snapple has a simple, clean flavor profile which was quite enjoyable.

So why "Metabolism" you ask?! Well, apparently there is a small study that shows green tea extract (in particular, the antioxidant EGCG), has been found to boost metabolism slightly. I liked that the bottle of Snapple Green Tea Metabolism tells us the exact amount of EGCG in the bottle (55 mg), although it would have been nice to know just how much is needed daily to affect metabolism (apparently it's 90 mg).

Snapple Diet Trop-A-Rocka Tea Review

Diet Snapple Trop-A-Rocka TeaI discovered the new Diet Snapple flavor created by Bret Michaels as part of his Celebrity Apprentice stint - Diet Snapple Trop-A-Rocka Tea - and as a fan of the show, it was my duty to try it, plus the combo of pear, peach, and cinnamon flavors sounded like something I would like.

Let's talk about the taste first. Forgive the pun, but Diet Snapple Trop-A-Rocka Tea ROCKS! I love peach and pear flavors, and cinnamon is a must on so many things I eat, so this tasted absolutely amazing to me. It was thirst-quenching but tasted like a treat too, which was fantastic. The flavors really worked incredibly well together, but what surprised me was how well the cinnamon brought out the other flavors.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 cup (8 ounces)
Calories: 5
Total Fat: 0%

I love the little Bret Michaels snippet on the bottle: "My new tea is taste bud tested and rocker approved. I chose to create a Diet Snapple because I am a lifelong type-1 diabetic and I know together we can find a cure for diabetes. And just like being a diabetic doesn't mean I have to sacrifice having a rockin' good time, Diet Snapple doesn't sacrifice great taste. My Snapple-osophy is simple: awesome taste, the best ingredients and low calories. And now The Best Stuff on Earth is better for me."

Snapple Diet Plum-A-Granate Tea Review

Reviewed by Tanya Jackson | Sep 28, 2010

Snapple Diet Plum-A-Granate TeaToday 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.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 cup (8 ounces)
Calories: 5
Total Fat: 0%
Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 5 mg, 0%
Carbohydrates: 0 grams
Fiber: 0%
Sugars: 0 grams
Protein: 0 grams

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.

Snapple Diet Lemon TeaI do make sure to drink plenty of water daily, but I must confess that I cannot drink water all day every day. I need a little flavah sometimes! Sometimes, that flavor might come from flavored water, like VitaminWater 10 Multi-V Lemonade, or light iced tea beverages. When I'm in the mood for tea flavor, I usually reach for Snapple Diet Peach Tea is my favorite flavor, but I figured I was doing myself a disservice by not trying the other varieties. Since I like citrus, I opted for the Snapple Diet Lemon Tea, which cost $1.29.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 8 ounces
Calories: 0
Total Fat: 0%
Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 5 mg, 0%
Carbohydrates: 0 grams

I was expecting a lot from this and frankly, I was a bit disappointed. Lemon teas are often too sweet and not tart enough, and I also think that artificial lemon flavoring doesn't pair that well with green and black tea. This drink was no exception to that, much to my chagrin.

Each 8-ounce serving of Snapple Diet Lemon Tea has 0 calories, 5 mg of sodium and not much else. The ingredients are, filtered water, citric acid, tea, aspartame, potassium citrate and natural flavors. It is, after all, a diet tea-based drink.

Diet Snapple Peach TeaI picked up a bottle of Diet Peach Snapple as a post spinning class refreshment. I've been grabbing this stuff for years now, and I thought to myself: What makes me choose Snapple? Especially the peach flavor? I pondered that question more carefully as I sipped my $1.29 beverage.

I've always gone for peach-flavored things, whether it's gummy peach rings (remember those??) or peach yogurt. Snapple is no different for me. This drink has all the peach-tastic flavor combined with the health benefits of green and black tea with zero calories. According to the Snapple website, this tea has 71 mg of natural antioxidants per 8 ounces. Not bad! It's pretty thirst-quenching too.

Snapple Diet Peach Tea provides no calories, 5 mg of sodium, and nothing else. The ingredients include, filtered water, citric acid, tea, natural flavors, aspartame, potassium citrate, and malic acid.
