Topaz Review of Snapple Peach Green Tea

Snapple Peach Green Tea Official Site (clicky)

A good price, a good flavor, and a can that is easy on the eyes. The Snapple corporation certainly knows how to market their products, and it shows in Peach Green Tea. The main thing that enticed me to buy Peach Green Tea was the price. At only 79 cents, most of the time it's going to be the cheapest drink in the coolers.

The color scheme here is a good choice, with a tea-green endowing almost the whole can. The orange band around the top declares ".79 (suggested retail price) and is an attention catcher. Good marketing, and cheap too. They didn't really want to spend the time and effort on making the design on the can look beautiful, now did they?

Peach Green Tea is a cheap, moderately good tasting beverage that doesn't have any real glaring flaws. At Seventy-Nine cents, you definitely get what you pay for. It goes well with some potato chips, but only worth it if you have the extra change. Overall, I would give it a...
