Now That’s a Healthy Drink

Now That’s a Healthy Drink

Consumerist alerts us that paying attention to labels isn’t such a bad idea:

Of all the ridiculous Acai schemes we’ve seen involving overpriced miracle elixirs, Snapple wins hands down — their Acai Blackberry drink is high fructose corn syrup, pear juice, and “natural flavors.”

Water and corn syrup? Great! Basically, not much healthier than drinking a Coke. Remember that just because it says acai, pomegranate, or rhubarb on the label doesn’t mean you’re getting much — if any — of it in the bottle.
