I believe that it is pretty humorous that I was only informed that the Amazing Race was still on the air after receiving a case of Snapple Papaya Mango Tea for review. This variety of tea comes in a normal and a diet formulation, with a significantly different flavor profile for each. The Diet tea seems to be the more attractive of the two. The sweetness of the mango in the diet iteration acts as the perfect yin to the more bitter tea base’s yang, creating an absolutely heavenly product that does not contain any of the dietary drawbacks of the normal version. In regards to teas currently on the market, I feel that the Snapple Diet Papaya Mango Tea stands heads and shoulders above related goods. Papaya and Mango are pretty exotic additions to a beverage that many just take for granted, but these inclusions will ensure that one will pay proper attention to the drink in the future.
Where the normal version of the Snapple Papaya Mango Tea does contain the same amount of calories as a soda or juice, there is a fullness imparted with each sip that will ensure that an imbiber has a little bit left in their bottle when they are full. Snapple has a solid line of different teas, but this does not mean that they are sitting on their laurels in the least.
Rather, when they are charged with creating innovative takes on tea, they shine. The Papaya Mango line is only in stores for a limited period of time, but strong enough sales should be enough for the company to add it to their normal product line. Go to your normal supermarket, convenience store, or other stop and see if they have some in – you will not regret it.
