If there wasn’t the photo above, I imagine it might be hard to believe Apple Pie Snapple Pie existed. I think the only other way you’d believe it is if the underside of a Snapple cap told you it was real.
The all-natural juice drink that sounds unnatural came out in 2003. I took this photo in 2005. There was also Berry Mix & Mingle Snapple Pie, which I didn’t even bother picking up when I saw both beverages at 7-Eleven.
I’ve had several apple pie-flavored products over the years and all of them, except this Snapple, were solid food. But, surprisingly, this beverage was the closest tasting to an actual apple pie. It even had a bit of crust flavor. Oh, I know the idea of drinking crust sounds weird, but it wasn’t. It was another W word — wonderful.
Sadly, this limited edition flavor disappeared from refrigerated beverage cases. At the time, I wish I called the Snapple Lady to tell her how much I loved it. My efforts might’ve saved Apple Pie Snapple Pie, or get me a nice letter from Snapple corporate thanking me for being a fan with a few coupons for free Snapple.
Since a number of beverages have been rescued from Discontinued Island, like Surge and Crystal Pepsi, I have hope Apple Pie Snapple Pie might find its way back onto shelves. While not as beloved as Surge and Crystal Pepsi, if you do a Google search, you’ll find links that lead to several folks who want to taste this apple pie-flavored beverage again.
