Better late then never.....I GUESS.
After weeks (which turned into months) of searching, I finally found Brett Michael's Snapple/Celebrity Apprentice Bret's Blend Trop-A- Rocka Diet Iced Tea a few weeks back and I'm just getting around to blogging about it today.
I couldn't find the tea to save my life! And that was both frustrating and annoying- I wanted to try it and I wanted (and was willing) to give my money to a diabetes charity, so why couldn't more stores carry the damn flavor!
Seriously, I Checked Snapple's Website Locator, I checked (many would say bothered) with store managers, and NO LUCK.
Many stores had the Compassion Berry Tea, and I'll just go ahead and answer my own question re: the lack of product/
Everyone who has ever had to by diet anything knows that most stores Diet Iced Tea/soda selection is limited to begin with, hence the reason finding the Trop-A-Rocka tea was damn next to impossible - at least for me.
I finally found the flavor at two different WaWa convenience stores. One in South Philly and one in South Jersey.
And you know, it wasn't bad -It was actually pretty good. OK, I'll admit it, I LIKED IT.
Now if more stores would actually carry the flavor, maybe more money could be raised for The American Diabetes Association.
Personally, I 'd like to see all moneys raised go towards research for the cure and for implementing more ADA activities for adults and children with type 1- but that's how I roll.
So my questions for you are:
1. Have you tried the tea?
2. Did you had any problems finding the tea?
3. How would you like The American Diabetes Association spend the money generated by the sale of the tea?
