Made from the best stuff on Earth

Queen Victoria had good taste. And so does Snapple for that matter.

Proof: The new drink I tried today called Snapple Peach Mangosteen. "Rumor has it that Queen Victoria of England offered knighthood to anyone who could bring her a Mangosteen in edible condition."

Do you even know what a mangosteen is? No? Ok. I'll tell you:
Though it’s been around for literally thousands of years, the mangosteen fruit is not commonly known the world over. Typically grown in southeast Asia and other tropical climates, its taste is beyond compare. Containing a dark purple rind and boasting a sweet white pulp, it is roughly about the size of a tangerine.
Delicious as it is functional, the mangosteen fruit is rich in xanthones, which may promote healthy bodily function. In addition, each serving of mangosteen contains up to 5 grams of fiber. Its purplish pigment has also been used as a dye. (Xango.com)

...and it's darn good in juice. Try it.
