Available only from October through December 2003, new Snapple Pie will have you saying thanks with authentic apple pie taste (even the crust!) in a 16 ounce Snapple bottle.

“Who says pie only comes in an aluminum tin?” said Maura Mottolese, Vice President, Snapple Marketing. “Our Snapple Pie juice drink allows you to have pie all day long… and the best part is you don’t have to turn on the oven. All you have to do is pop the cap!”

Nothing is more American than Apple Pie and Snapple! Put the two together and you have a Snapple Pie juice drink that is sure to delight your friends this upcoming holiday season. But, Snapple Pie is only available through the end of December.

Only the experts at Snapple could cook up a flavor that tastes like real apple pie straight from the oven. “In order to create new Snapple Pie, we were constantly doing taste comparisons against some of our favorite apple pies on the market,” said Smita Patel, Vice President, Snapple Research and Development. “We made sure our version is the juiciest of all, with all-natural flavorings to simulate the whole pie, from the fresh-picked apples to the handmade crust.”

If you don’t have time to bake a pie this holiday season, use this easy and delicious drink recipe for Snapple Pie a la Mode. Simply warm up a batch of Snapple Pie, top with a scoop of your favorite vanilla ice cream and whipped cream, drizzle with caramel, serve with a spoon and enjoy!
