It all started in New York’s Greenwich Village in 1972. Childhood friends Leonard Marsh, Hyman Golden and Arnold Greenburg saw more potential in fruit than just something to throw in the lunchroom. They began selling fruit drinks to health food stores under the name Unadulterated Food Corporation. But where did they get the name Snapple? It actually came from a carbonated apple soda that was part of the original beverage line. The soda had a great snappy apple taste. Now that’s cleverness at its best. Fast forward to the era of hair bands and acid-washed jeans. We’re talking 1987, my friends. That’s when Snapple teas were born. Snapple Lemon Tea was first. The godfather of all Snapple teas. Today, Snapple produces more than 50 varieties of teas, juice drinks and flavored waters.
