Snapple, the US soft drinks company owned by UK-based group, Cadbury Schweppes, has moved to put concerned consumers' minds to rest regarding a product bearing the extremely unfortunate name of Bali Blast.

The company confirmed that the company had marketed a brand under that name from the mid-1980s but had discontinued production a few years ago. It stated that any products still being sold under the brand name in the US must be old stock.
