Besides my 2 litres of water a day

Snapple's Lime Green Tea is so good that even though it was hot and I was bothered, when the first convenience store didn't have it, I was ready to trek up and across a (greenhouse-hot) bridge to get to the supermarket on the other side of the road. Happily, another convenience store presented itself before I started up the bridge and, miracle of miracles, though it was smaller than the first store, it had bottles and bottles of the precious tea.

One was enough to keep me satisfied for the rest of the afternoon, making it a total of three I've had since I discovered the flavour. If only it weren't 200 calories + 46 grams of sugar a bottle ... (Not that I'm a dieting freak, but ye olde family history of diabetes looms over me with impending doom, and 46 grams is more than 3 tablespoons of sugar, y'all.)

How big are your tablespoons?! Sugar isn't that dense.

oh man, i love Snapple's Lime Green Tea. when i first found it at the only cafe on campus that carries good snapple i rapidly became addicted. the only thing that saved me was it turned too cold to keep drinking cold snapple...and i switched to my other addiction, coffee.

but i can imagine in Singapore...a nice cold sweet glass bottle of Lime Green Tea to quench the thirst and cool the throat...yum!

gosh, this summer had passing but intense addiction to Volvic's Green Mint Tea. Had amazing little fresh sweet tingle at the back of the throat. Wonder if it's the same wonky artificial flavouring factory, out in New Jersey, spicing our drinks.

Agagooga, I used the Gram Conversion Calculator to figure out the equivalency.

Nevertheless, I suspect I'll find myself stocking up on Lime Green Tea the next time I pop by a supermarket ...
