Snapple Elements

I can’t hold it in any longer. Snapple Elements are perhaps the best beverages I’ve ever tasted, ever. They are delicious. While you might not go gonzo over every single flavor (I personally don’t like Sun all that much), the fact remains that they are impressive.

Plus, you get a neat-looking glass bottle. Surprisingly not plastic!

I really had no clue of what the Elements were until I was talking with Liz one day and she mentioned them. The next day I ran over to Albertson’s/Jewel to pick up a few and gave them a shot. Totally delicious. This is the beverage that could still unseat soda as my #1 beverage of choice. The things are that good. Give them a go.

And be sure to see Snapple’s flash-happy site. -pm

I have a few empty Snapple Element Bottles. Does anyone collect them? We have decided not to continue collecting. We have Sun, Fire, Rain. Also an empty collectible Arizona Tea Bottle – USA by Peter Max with the Statue of Liberty.

back when Snapple came out with the element series, i started collecting them. i was traveling the country at the time and was able to collect them from all over. i have a collection of 19 flavors all together. some are labeled energy and some elements. the list that i have is : TURBULENCE, DIET ICE, ALTITUDE, LIGHTNING, DIET AIR, VELOCITY, VOLCANO, SPARK, VOLTAGE, ATOMIC, INFUSION, MOON, METEOR, SKY, FIRE, GRAVITY, RAIN, SUN, and EARTH. they all have the same shape bottle and in my collection, they are full with the original drink with the seals still attached. i would buy 2 at a time, try one and keep the other one for the collection. it’s a pretty nice sight.

back when Snapple came out with the element series, i started collecting them. Thought the Bottles looked cool, have 13 in collection all full never opened Diet Air, Fire, Spark, Moon, Earth, Gravity, Rain, Atomic, Lighting, Volcano, Meteor, And Two Different Sun Flavors One of them is Starfruit Orange and the other is Juiced Berry Banana. Wondering Since there’s two different sets how many flavors were there is total First Sets Has Snapple upper left label, the other has Elements upper left label.Also Seal stored in pantry if they still taste good after so long
