Arizona Iced Tea Versus Snapple Juice Drink

Post  MightyA on Fri May 15, 2009 10:18 pm

There are so many new beverages on the market that look good. I've been trying many of them. This review is comparing Arizona Diet Blueberry Green Tea with Diet Snapple Cranberry Raspberry Juice Drink.

In the past I've had Diet Arizona Iced Tea without any flavor and enjoyed it. This particular flavor I had in a cafe with lunch. It came in a 20-ounce bottle however it also comes in 16-ounces, 42-ounces and 128-ounces.

Arizona beverages started out you might say as a beer! Owners John Ferolita and Don Vultaggio started distributing beer in 1971. They were successful but saw that consumers wanted ready to drink iced tea products. In 1992 Arizona Iced Tea was born.

The ingredients are premium brewed green tea using filtered water, sorbitol, natural flavors, citric acid, black carrot extract, sucralose, acesulfame potassium. With only five calories per eight ounces and no sugar Arizona Blueberry Green Tea is a nice alternative to diet soda for me. I like to think it's almost healthy!

Please note: sucralose is made from sugar and sorbital is a sugar substitute as well.

The taste was really pleasant. I can't say that I tasted any blueberries. In fact looking at the ingredients I see natural flavors so they add sugar free syrup I imagine. It was warm in the café and warm outside. This was a refreshing drink with my wrap.

The cost of this 20 ounce bottle was in the $2.00 range.



Diet Snapple Cranberry Raspberry Juice Drink was delicious. I had this over the weekend. It was warm outside; this was very refreshing. It was slightly tart. It put a pucker on my face but was sweet enough to satisfy my tooth!

I took a second look when I went to pay the $1.65 for 16 ounces for it because it says Diet on the bottle but then it says low calorie. I assumed previously that Diet meant no calories. With only 10 calories per serving it is certainly a diet beverage but it not a no calorie drink. Sixteen ounces is considered two servings which is still a nice low number of calories if you drink the whole bottle which I did and which is easy to do.

I don't like Snapple, too expensive and too sweet for my taste.

Interesting comparison. Personally, I don't find much of a contest between Arizona and Snapple. Arizona makes a flat out better product. And ****, you can buy 24oz cans of a lot of their teas for 99cents at most corner stores. Even their regular products have half the sugar of soda and Snapple. They also tend to use real sugar instead of corn syrup in a majority of their drinks, which is nice from a natural, simple food standpoint and I personally like the taste of real sugar over corn syrup better even in soda. Definitely, to each his own, and some of the Snapple products taste good, but Arizona beats 'em on price and quality without trouble.

I prefer unsweetened fresh brewed "sun" tea.

Generally, I don't like sweet drinks. I've been there and done it with nearly every flavor of Snapple. Arizona is a lesser of the two evils.

On the other hand, this Texas Tea can be mighty satisfying.

Ingredients
2 oz Vodka
2 oz Tequila
2 oz Triple Sec
2 oz Bourbon
2 oz Gin
2 oz Rum
2 oz Sweet and Sour Mix
3/4 oz Coca-Cola

Directions
Fill a 1 gallon pitcher with ice. Add all the ingredients except the coca-cola. Stir, then add the coca-cola and stir again. Pour into your favorite glass with ice and enjoy.
