Snapple Antioxidant Water – A Review

9 Comments 1379 views

Last week Snapple contacted me asking if I’d review some of their new Antioxidant Waters. Of course I said yes! I mean who doesn’t like Snapple? 

Well their new line of drinks comes in seven unique flavors inspired by nature’s “superfruits,” including pomegranates and acai berries.  The antioxidants, vitamins and electrolytes in each flavor provide one of four distinct benefits for the body: 

  • The Power to PROTECT:, Vitamins A and E, electrolytes and a complete dose of Vitamin C help protect the body against free radicals.  Available in Tropical Mango and Orange Starfruit flavors.
  • The Power to DEFY: Vitamins A and E, Grape Seed Extract, plus electrolytes assist in refreshing the body and mind.  Available in Raspberry Acerola and Grape Pomegranate flavors.
  • The Power to AWAKEN: Vitamins A, E and B, Caffeine, Guarana, Ginseng and Ribose, plus electrolytes will awaken your senses.  Available in Strawberry Acai and Dragonfruit flavors.
  • The Power to RESTORE: Vitamins A and E, plus a double dose of electrolytes assist in restoring the body after any endurance and strength activity.  Available in Agave Melon flavor.

I was able to try four different flavors and each one was delicious. It’s not overly sweet and has a great refreshing taste!

The Dragonfruit with the “Power to Awaken” was my favorite. Not being a coffee or a soda drinker, I don’t really have a ‘pick me up’ drink. So I particularly saved the “Awaken” for a time when I needed a bit more energy and it did deliver.

I really did liked it but I have to admit the name bugs me a bit because it’s not only “water”. Water implies (to me anyway) a calorie free beverage but the Snapple “Water” does contain sugar and has about 50 calories per servings (130 per bottle).  Not too too bad but it’s something you may not realize if you don’t glance at the nutritional information.

Overall, I recommend giving some a try. Sometimes I even get sick of water and this is a fun, tasty alternative.  

Has anyone else tried it?

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Roni! I tried this a while back but I did it at the same time as Propel water (same thing, different flavors/name) and I remember thinking that the taste was great but the sodium content was through the roof! Am I remembering wrong? Its possible…it was a few months ago.

    I haven’t tried this but do drink Vitamin Water every now and again…I haven’t seen the Snapple. I will have to give it a try!

    I tried this and didn’t like the taste. I’m going to save the calories for something better than sweetened water.

    I tend to alternate between coffee and water. And Diet Dr. Pepper. And beer.

    Snapple not so much.

    Sounds yummy. Do you have NI for it? I am curious to see how many sugars are in it. I don’t think we have it on base here in Germany yet but I will keep my eyes open. Thanks for the information. BTW…you must be a big-wig if Snapple is contacting you to review their stuff. How cool!

    My daily beverages normally consist of WATER, WATER, WATER and the occasional Crystal Light, but I picked up one of these today to try (Restore – Agave Melon). It wasn’t bad, but I’d rather “eat” my calories. One bottle (20 oz) is 140 calories and 32 grams of sugar.

    I think the idea of snapple antioxidant water is great. In the the vein, I wanted to share one product that has been amazing. I have these bike shorts from fitandsharp.com. They have helped me lose 2 inches from my hips in 30days! They not only squeeze me but also have an active ingredient that actually causes you to smoothen your skin and lose inches! I highly recommend it!
