Discontinued Snapple Flavors You'll Never Drink Again

Snapple has been selling bottles of juice and tea in grocery stores since the early 1970s in New York City. Throughout the decades, the brand has evolved and grown over the years. One of the major changes was when Snapple changed its packaging from its longtime glass bottles filled with flavors like Snapple Apple and Mango Madness to plastic ones. The look may have evolved, but loyal fans of the beverage company will be glad to know that the fun "Snapple Facts" on the inside of every bottle cap remain an unchanged tradition. Another wavering aspect about the brand is its ever-changing line of flavors. 

Some of the staple Snapple flavors will seemingly never stop being made. It's hard to imagine the brand without classics like Peach Tea or Pink Lemonade. Aside from the basics, Snapple has introduced several different flavors over the years that have come and gone. Some were forgotten for good reason, while others were so good that fans are still begging the brand to bring them back to this day. 

We combed through some of the forgotten flavors of Snapple history to determine which bottles likely won't make their way back to the regular lineup anytime soon. It may seem unlikely that most of these flavors will ever return, but loyal fans seemingly won't stop hoping for them anyway. There are just some throwback Snapple flavors that have yet to be perfectly replicated by any other drinks brands.

Lime Green Tea

Green tea is one of those flavors that Snapple probably will never remove from its lineup because it's a universal basic drink. Back in the 2000s, however, the brand did offer a citrus-infused riff on the staple that is no longer available for us to taste. Thankfully, BevNet still has a 2003 review posted of Lime Green Tea Snapple that gives those of us who didn't get a chance to try it an indication of what this flavor tasted like back in the day. 

In general, it seems that, unlike the earthy and herbal regular green tea flavor, the old Snapple was much heavier with the proportions of lime to tea. In fact, the review states that it was difficult to detect those distinct green tea flavors, which might be why this is one of Snapple's less popular products in the grand scheme of things. If the mashup flavor ever makes a comeback, it seems as though the brand would likely alter its recipe to make it a little more balanced than the original iteration. 

Samoan Splash

Samoan Splash is a throwback Snapple flavor from the 1990s that was introduced during a time when the brand was trying to offer more one-of-a-kind flavors in its lineup. Samoan Splash, which contained orange, banana, strawberry, and cupuacu, was part of the brand's Island Cocktail line of flavors, according to a 1996 report from Supermarket News. Strawberry and banana was a trendy flavor combination in the 1990s, so it seems like a smart marketing move for Snapple to push this tropical flavor. Additionally, according to the Paley Center for Media, commercials for the flavor relied on the U.S. audience's unfamiliarity with the cupaucu fruit from Brazil, boasting about its deliciousness. 

The execution of Snapple Samoan Splash was probably not as good as it could have been. An IPacific review of the flavor compares the taste of this Snapple to a banana and strawberry drink you could get at a basic smoothie shop rather than anything resembling the true flavors of the Pacific island. 

The entire line of Snapple sodas

Snapple fans might fondly remember that, aside from the iced tea and juices, the brand also sold a line of caffeine-free sodas back in the 1980s. There were multiple flavors like Tru Root Beer, Peach Melba, French Cherry, Cream D'Vanilla, Passion Fruit, Chocolate, and the popular Cherry-Lime Rickey. According to a 2010 open letter to Snapple about the product line in the Dallas Observer, the sodas seemingly disappeared from the shelves sometime in the mid-1990s. While it's been decades since Snapple has sold soda, fans of the flavors remember the product fondly and seem to wish that the brand would bring back the tasty line. Snapple did respond to the Dallas Observer's inquiry about the line and didn't give any indication that the flavors would ever make a comeback in the future. 

Some users on In The 80s claim that they haven't even enjoyed Snapple since they got rid of the soda line. "I would've [sworn] I was the only one who had ever had Snapple soda. Nobody knew what I was talking about any time I spoke about it," one fan wrote. "Wish they'd bring it back."

Guava Mania

Tropical flavors were all the rage for Snapple in the 1990s, which was also the decade the brand introduced its Guava Mania flavor (via South China Morning Post). The pleasantly pink juice drink took on the flavors of guava, kiwi, and strawberry in a sweet and refreshing blend.

Snapple has totally revamped its tropical line of flavors, and guava no longer seems to be a major focus for the brand. However, back in the 1990s, it was touted as one of the most unique options in the lineup, and the brand hoped that its customers would eventually graduate from simple flavors like lemon tea to something more spontaneous (via The Free Library). Even though it's long been out of the product rotation, fans who remember Guava Mania aren't happy that it's been gone without even a limited-time return. "Hey @Snapple whose idea it was to get rid of Guava Mania Cocktail, FIRE THEM IMMEDIATELY," one Twitter user wrote to the brand. 

Summer Peach

Summer Peach Snapple is one of the discontinued flavors from the brand that many people still remember fondly. It was full of citrus flavors like oranges with that distinct sweetness from peaches in a colorful juice that resembled a summer sunset. A quick search on Twitter about the flavor results in dozens of people begging the brand to bring it back. Despite the pleas, Snapple said that the flavor is unlikely to make a comeback. "Unfortunately, Summer Peach has been discontinued. However, we'll be sure to pass along the demand to our team," Snapple wrote on Twitter to a fan asking to bring back the flavor. 

For those who are now craving a Summer Peach Snapple, one Twitter user seemingly found a dupe that bares close resemblance to the flavor. The Summer Peach lemonade from Calypso is apparently the answer. "Idk if ppl remember the summer peach Snapple, but it was my favorite thing ever as a kid. It only came out during the summer months and I was starting to think I imagined it lmao. I had this Calypso today and it tastes the EXACT same," the tweet read. 

Apple Pie

Snapple Pie was a real limited edition flavor from the brand that captured the flavors of the holidays inside a refreshing juice drink. The brand first introduced the apple pie flavor in 2003 before bringing it back in 2005 alongside a cranberry and raspberry Snapple Pie flavor (via Food Ingredients First). Snapple Pie wasn't just a festively packaged version of Snapple Apple juice. This bottle was an attempt at capturing the flavor of flaky crust, warm baking spices, and fresh fruit in a drink that resembled more of an apple cider rather than a clear apple juice. In fact, CNN reported in 2003 when announcing the flavor that it is also a rare Snapple drink that tastes just as delicious if you heat it up like a warm cider. 

A review from The Impulsive Buy of the unique flavor states that surprisingly, out of all the apple pie-flavored products for sale at the time, Snapple best nailed the flavor of homemade pie. It might be one of those Snapple flavors that was a flash in the pan, but it might be so weird that the company will have to bring it back for a limited time one day in the future. The apple pie fans can dream, at least. 

Mint tea

Those of us who remember Snapple Mint Iced Tea likely remember it fondly. It was a bright and flavorful drink that tasted like freshly brewed tea. Snapple first discontinued the flavor in 2007 before bringing it back for a limited time in 2009 following customer demand (via Progressive Grocer). In more recent years, it's been off the shelf for what seems like good, as confirmed in a tweet from Snapple to a fan asking for the flavor to make a comeback. "There are no plans for a Mint Iced Tea revival tour at this point," the tweet read. "But you never know when our nostalgic summer cravings might be too much. Keep letting us know which flavors you want to make a comeback, or keep around." 

Snapple mint tea fans are taking that comment to heart. One Twitter user told the brand they would "commit to buying several cases" of the mint flavor if it was given another chance. There's even a Facebook page of more than 260 followers who are begging Snapple to bring the flavor back. If this flavor does make another return, it will be due in part to loyal fans' dedication to the flavor. 


Another gone but not forgotten relic from Snapple in the 1990s was the Melonberry Snapple. As you might expect from the name, the flavor was a mashup of watermelon, strawberries, and cherries in one drink that resembled a soda more than it did a fresh juice. However, that didn't make it any less delicious or thirst-quenching when you popped open one of these bright pink cans. Snapple first filed a trademark for the name Melonberry in 1993, but unfortunately, the flavor is no longer a part of the brand's core lineup, as the trademark was canceled in 2005 (via Alter). 

Even though Melonberry has been unavailable for years, a few of us fans have yet to totally forget what a sip of this Snapple tasted like. "This melon berry is very refreshing and when it's ice cold it's absolutely delicious. It tastes just like [freshly] squeezed juice," one Influenster user wrote in a review. 

Peach Passion Fruit Tea

Snapple Peach Passionfruit Tea was one of the brand's refreshing white tea options that seems to have plenty of fans that would like to see it come back. It was lightly sweetened with juicy flavors of fresh peaches and tropical passion fruit (via Instacart). Unlike some of the other teas in the lineup, this flavor felt more like a freshly brewed tea with just a little sugar rather than a sweet juice disguised as a tea. However, as the brand has evolved its lineup to be more succinct, it appears as though the flavor quietly disappeared from its lineup without even a proper goodbye.

If you just take a quick look at reviews on Influenster for this Snapple bottle, it's clear it had a massive group of supporters who liked to pick up a cold bottle at gas station stops and grocery stores. "I don't know if Snapple discontinued this product or not, but I can't find it anywhere," one review reads. "I love the taste and the fact that it is 'lightly sweetened.'"

The complete Snap Punch line

Similar to the line of sodas, Snapple had an entire line of fruity Snap Punch drinks that were full-flavored and often sold in two-liter bottles. In the 2010s, the drinks — with flavors like watermelon, grape, cherry, and mango — were popular sights in the soda aisle of the grocery store. Not only were they widely available, but the flavors were a hit with customers. "Just take me straight back to my childhood. Summer time at the pool. Drinking these and pretending like I was on the top of the world," one Influenster user wrote in a review of Snap Punch Cherry Punch. "Good times let me tell ya. If you wanted to relive what it was like to be sunburned at 4 p.m. on a Thursday at the community pool then this is the drink for you."

At some point in recent years, Snapple quietly discontinued Snap Punch for good, as was confirmed by the brand in a tweet from 2021. "Snap Punch drinks are no longer being produced, but you should give our current Fruit Punch a try," Snapple wrote on Twitter

Diet Snapple

In 2021, Snapple made a major decision to remove all their "diet" drinks from grocery store shelves. It was shocking as Diet Snapple had been such a major part of the brand since practically its inception. If a particular flavor of Diet Snapple was your absolute favorite, you're in luck because the brand didn't leave its customers wanting more. Snapple decided to forgo its line of diet flavors and instead opt for packaging that touts "zero sugar" on the bottle. It wasn't a move out of nowhere or even isolated to just Snapple drinks. 

According to a 2021 report from CNN, the word "diet" has been falling out of fashion for modern-day consumers, making it an unproductive marketing tactic on packaging. "Younger people just don't like the word 'diet,'" said Greg Lyons, chief marketing officer at PepsiCo Beverages North America, during the Beverage Digest Future Smarts conference in December 2021. "No Gen Z wants to be on a diet these days." Therefore, if you prefer a less sugary option, you can browse the beverage aisle easily knowing that there's a suitable alternative for you from Snapple.
