It''s been more than a month since anyone in East Birmingham has heard from "the Snapple guy" and neither I nor the folks at the Dr. Pepper / Snapple group have any answers.
It started in mid-April when my local convenience store ran out of Snapple Apple, and Snapple Fruit Punch - my two favorite flavors. I asked the owner to order some for me and he said he'd be glad to... if the Snapple guy ever shows up. While normally a loyal shopper, I love my Snapple and set off to find some. Over the next few weeks I depleted the supply of every store in the Roebuck / Centerpoint area. Each time asking them to order more - and each time being told they would if the Snapple guy ever shows up.
And now it''s almost June and still no sign of the Snapple guy. All the stores are still out, several with empty cooler racks waiting for restocking. I've twice contacted Snapple and received only form letters suggesting i ask for Snapple at my favorite stores, which of course I had been doing for weeks. Why is no one searching for this missing vendor? I contacted Snapple again and asked them for the contact information for the distributor in my area. They have not responded. meanwhile the Snapple guy has not been heard from and my thirst now goes unquenched.
What is Snapple hiding? Why won''t they tell me truth about what happened to the Snapple delivery driver? If he''s not missing then I have to assume they just aren't a good company. You have customers and retailers looking for your product in our area and we can''t get it! We haven''t even seen the Celebrity Apprentice charity flavors you're advertising so heavily. Bret Michaels nearly died to bring us this new flavor, the least you can do is get it out there for us to try! Please Snapple, get in touch with me and let me know the Snapple guy is okay... and when I can expect to get some Snapple Fruit Punch again.
