Snapple is the brand name for a variety of drinks which are sold in glass bottles, soda-style cans, and plastic bottles.

Snapple was founded by Hyman Golden, Arnold Greenberg and Leonard Marsh. The word "Snapple" is derived from a carbonated apple soda. Currently, there are four different types of Snapple: Tea, Juice Drinks, Lemonade, and Diet.

It is easy to recognize the different varieties because each type of drink has a differently colored cap:

  • Teas: blue caps
  • Diets: white caps
  • Juice drinks: green caps
  • Lemonades: yellow caps

Snapple's motto is "made from the best stuff on earth," a reference to its all-natural ingredient usage.

Snapple and Education

Snapple has recently agreed to sponsor the New York City school system, which is desperately strapped for cash. In return, Snapple vending machines are placed ubiquitously throughout schools in the city. It is interesting to note that Snapple was able to acquire the deal in part because New York City officials did not want to encourage the consumption of high-calorie sodas, which have been linked to childhood obesity and are considered unhealthful.

Snapple Caps

Snapple is also known for putting facts about the world on the underside of the bottle caps. A full listing of these "Real Facts" (as they are called) is available on their website. (See link below).

Advertising/Spokespersons

In 1993 Wendy Kaufman, an employee for the Snapple corporation, was recruited to be the commercial spokesperson for the drink. This was because she had taken it upon herself to answer letters that were coming into the company RE: the product. Kaufman's advertisements centered around her reading letters out-loud and delivering comedic responses; she was dubbed "The Snapple Lady." These commercials ran until 1997 when she was unceremoniously fired from the company, but fan response was so huge that she was brought back in 2002.
