I heard about this on CNN... Yeah.. What were they thinking? Why can they do this during the winter?

What a waste. But interesting though.

That's the New Snapple for ya.

Nevermind the "best stuff on earth", you just hire a bunch of ad agencies to promote annoying bottlecap contests, silly promotions, a dumb website with stupid games, and most of all, REALLY juvenile labels that try to copy a Ben and Jerry tipe feeling.

Ain't capitalisim grand?

Those blokes at Snapple are not as stupid as it might seem...

They got a lot more air-time & print from the melting popsicle than they ever would have gotten from a big frozen popsicle.

Yeah!! Let's hear a big hurrah for all the marketing folks who seem to have taken over the world!!!

More Advertising!!! Everywhere!!! All the Time!!!!

(Just so our brains are kept in a constant state of awe, wonder & bewilderment)

As if working in cahoots with Bloomberg to monopolize the market wasn't enough, godforsaken Snapple has to start sending people to the hospital.

I hope they sue the pants off them.
