Snapple had several sodas in the 80's, from "standard" flavors (like root beer and lemon-lime) to more unique stuff like Passion Fruit, Chocolate, and Cherry-Lime Rickey. A lot of them were clear; they made a big deal out of not using food coloring. I haven't seen any of them in years, which is a shame because they were some of the best sodas I've ever had!

Vanilla soda was my fav. I drank it all of the time. I wish they would bring it back. I havent had any snapple flavs ive liked since.

I used to LOVE Snapple Soda. In this market where the big Soda producers refuse to cut out the HFC Snapple could rake in a tidy profit by bringing them back!

I remember making drinks called "Mounds Bars" using Malibu rum and Snapple chocolate soda. Delicious! Their sodas were really good, I wish they hadn't gone national ...

ohhh my goodness... i want some Cherry Lime Ricky and some Vanilla... yeah they were the best they need to bring them back. It was great w/ no food coloring! With the new health conscious wave they would make a killing!

OMG, I thought I was having some retro dream remembering Snapple Chocolate soda. I remember telling ppl about it and they look at me like I'm cracked "Snapple didn't do soda". Thank you so much for posting this. They were the best, too bad they only do tea now.

Their chocolate soda was the first chocolate soda I had ever had and it was so good, I remember looking for it a few years ago only to come to the sad conclution they no longer made it. My mom used to get this for me and man do I wish they still made it.

I not only remember Snapple Soda, but have thought for years that I was the only person who did. None of my friends did, no matter who or how many people I asked. My own family doesn't recall this wonderful Snapple line even though my dad bought my first Root Beer for me. I think the Raspberry Lime was my favorite!

Just reading these other postings crack me up. I too loved the snapple soda drinks. I was in middle school and my friend and I would walk to the local corner store almost every other day, just to get snapple soda. Passion flavor was my favorite. It is funny how many people I have asked if they remembered the snapple sodas, and felt like I was alone on an island. They need to bring these back. I would be a daily customer, and im sure I wouldnt be alone.....come on snapple.

I used to drink this stuff all the time and when I moved out West they didn't sell it any more. I wish they really would make the old stuff. Seems like there are a lot of us who would rather drink Clear Cola than tea.

I worked in a deli back in the 80s and stocked the cooler with soda a few times a week. I miss all the flavors you folks mentioned, I'd also mix vanilla and chocolate sodas for my amusement. Nobody mentioned the weirder flavors they had. I distinctly remember celery soda...that's right, celery. I never tried it and regret it now.

@Aimee--I think the clear stuff was Birch Beer. I loved that one as a kid. My mom used to bring home cases of different flavors. I must have tried them all at least once.

Like so many of you Snapple soda lovers, I, too, faced quizzical looks at the mention of Snapple soda. I was in either 2nd or 3rd grade when my mom used to bring home the sodas. My favorite was Cream d' Chocolate. No coloring, good fizz, wonderful taste. I wish they would make it again with the old recipe.

please bring back the creme de vanilla soda that was the best snapple ever made

I wonder if Snapple has any Idea how many people really enjoyed their soda line. I have to give them props on their ice tea. But it would be nice if they could do both. With all the health concerns these days, I think it would be worth bringing the sodas back. after all "Made from the best stuff on earth" works for both...

Ok i know this has nothing to do with snapple soda BUT since this site has NOT posted my comment in the "unknown" section(its been like 4 years!)im gonna ask here and hope someone will see it and we go:these were small shiny naturel colored discs of gum which were sort of hard until you chewed them...they came in mostly "tan" colors and maube a muted purplish or blue one was present in the pack if you were lucky...they had multi colored "speckles" on them and extremely sour...please help

I was kid and I use to love to go to the deli and get the vanilla, peach Melba and a passion one with a purple label. It was awesome because they were clear!!!! So bring them back please.

Why has no one mentioned the "fruit punch soda" or something similarly named, from Snapple? I believe that's what it was called, and the only kind of Snapple soda I have ever had, though I don't remember from where. However, I think I bought it circa the year 2000, and may even have been when I was overseas.

My favorite was the Peach-Kiwi clear soda. I have yet to find anything that even comes close... it was amazing!!! What I wouldn't give for Snapple to bring back thier clear soda line!

Creme de Chocolate was amazing. Bring it back!
Chris - December 10, 2015 - Report this comment
I would've swore I was the only one who had ever had Snapple soda. Nobody knew what I was talking about any time I spoke about it. I used to love the Root beer and I forgot about the chocolate and lime rickey soda until I found this page. Wish they'd bring it back.

Yes......Passion Fruit ...could only buy it at the local health food store, yes that's right the local health food was awesome stuff. One of the most distinct tastes I have ever experienced, really loved that stuff! Wish I had saved a bottle.

Clear Root Beer was the best. Tasted like liquid cotton candy!

I Just now called Snapple Customer Service. I asked again, when their CHOCOLATE flavored Clear Soda was returning. How I called every few years to ask for its return. She never heard of it. I miss Chocolate Snapple Soda, from circa 1990! I explained it was likely the stores could not keep it in stock, because all of use who loved it would buy every bottle of it. Chocolate Snapple was clear as water, (no food coloring) was fresh and tasted like chocolate! It was sOOOOO Good! Please call Snapple to ask them for it again!

Orange Brite was my favorite flavor. I'll never forget the first time I drank that stuff - made me belch so loud I scared myself.

My step dad had a Snapple route so we literally had a box truck full of it in our back yard. On nights that we ordered pizza one of us would go out back and grab a case of one of the sodas. We moved to Fla and years Slater got word that Snapple was coming to the state...soda was my first thought.. Total disappointment when I learned the stopped making it. I would buy no other if they still made it.

While cleaning out my parents garage I came across 2 empty bottle of Snapple Soda. One was Crème D’ Chocolate and the other was Crème D’ Vanilla. I don’t have the heart to recycle the bottles so I’ll be holding on to them for awhile 😃
