-The beverages do not contain all natural ingredients
-Although Snapple advertises its drinks as "all natural," they contain artificial ingredients
-The beverages contain high-fructose corn syrup, which is created through a chemical process and used to sweeten soft drinks and other processed foods

-As a result, customers buy more products and pay more for something they actually are not getting

-The complaint, one of the first of its kind against Snapple, targeted high-fructose corn syrup, which is made from processed corn starch and which critics say is not all natural because of the multiple steps it takes to create it.

-Dr Pepper Snapple Group violated consumer-fraud laws by marketing the drink as “all natural” at a time when it was made with an artificial sweetener.

-Most of their other products are much worse containing just as high levels of high fructose corn syrup, but also artificial sweeteners, colors and caffeine.
