Many in the holistic health industry use the Mangosteen juice as a diet supplement for its anti-inflammatory properties and to fight cancer, although there is no scientific evidence that shows that it is effective in cancer treatments. There have been proof that the antioxidants of this fruit can help with the treatment of acne. Snapple has combined the Mangosteen with the sweet juices of peaches to create one of its newest beverages, “Snapple Peach Mangosteen”.
Mangosteen Peach Snapple has dominating peach flavor. There is only a hint of the mangosteen in the taste, and the beverage is incredibly sweet. On a positive note; this beverage is very low in calories (180 calories per serving). Although it packs quite a lot of sugar (40g), they use “real” sugar instead of fruticose. It contains natural vitamins, (vitamins C, E, and vitamin A), and there is a tiny amount of sodium(25mg) per serving.
Snapple claims that the Mangosteen Peach can help to boost metabolism and can benefit the immune system. The usual serving size is approximately one cup, and each container has two servings.
Many who have tried it says that the taste is thirst quenching, but with the high sugar level that it has, that could be questionable. Dieters should consider this fact when consuming this beverage as a part of their diet plan.
No Mangosteen in Snapple Peach Mangosteen?
The ingredients list does not include the mangosteen, how is that? Since it’s called, “Peach Mangosteen”, shouldn’t there be some mangosteen in it? On their product page where they say that they were “expert tree climbers”, what tree were they climbing? It certainly not a mangosteen tree.
The taste of the mangosteen is barely noticed because it is over-powered by the peach flavor, which is also a tangy fruit. So maybe they blend in so well that the tastes compliment each other. The taste of the mangosteen sometimes surfaces after the beverage is swallowed, giving the drink a “tangy aftertaste”.
If someone assume that the path to better health is drinking Snapple’s Peach Mangosteen, maybe, because there is no real proof, except for acne. If someone is buying because they love the taste or are wanting to find out what the mangosteen tastes like, they would be better off buying the fruit.
The Peach Mangosteen should have been named “Tangy Peach” because at least there is a hint of peach in the drink or maybe Snapple should had considered naming it the “pear, carrot and peach juice drink, since there is no mangosteen in it.
Understandably, they’re out to sell their product and they may have done a slight play on the truth, but if someone had really thought about drinking this product for medicinal reasons, they would have been duped.
Granted Snapple is not touting the miracles of this drink; they’re playing up the exotic mangosteen aspects and the smart combination of it with the peach. Well if that was the case, shouldn’t they had at least added the mangosteen? Maybe the juice drink would have tasted a little better.
