Elements were a bunch of drinks based on the “elements” (durr) that Snapple put out in the late 90s. You could feel like a real and authentic hippie by drinking Snapple Earth while wearing Gap Grass! I only drank a couple of them and I didn’t drink them that often, but a chick I worked with practically lived on Diet Rain and she drank it as though it was tap water coming out of the faucet. (Side note: “Diet air” is not to be confused with the diet air that Goopy Paltrow has piped into her mansion to cleanse her lungs of all the fat air she breathes in while forced to hang around peasants in public.)
A lot of people were like my co-worker who drank, douched with and bathed in Snapple Elements. It was a huge hit and Snapple put out more flavors in 2000. But a few years later, people got over drinking a James Taylor song and Snapple eventually sent Elements to their drank graveyard. But there’s still Element-aholics out there who are screaming at Snapple to bring it back. A petition on Change.org has a little over 3,000 supporters. I hope that their dreams come true and Snapple brings back Elements, because if they do, that means that there’s a little chance that Clearly Canadian may re-release my drink of choice in the late 90s: Orbitz!
