    SNAPPLE SLIPS UP IN ICE-POP FLOP

    June 22, 2005 -- An advertising stunt by Snapple to build the world's largest ice pop in Union Square went terribly wrong yesterday - the sugary confection melted in the heat and sent unsuspecting pedestrians and cyclists slipping and sliding.
    One woman who fell in the hazardous goo was rushed to the hospital with a badly sprained ankle, and three cyclists - including this one at right - were catapulted off their bikes.

    "I can't believe this, it's so dangerous," said cyclist Dave Currente, who took a nasty tumble.

    The Fire Department raced to East 17th Street between Broadway and Union Square East to hose down the super-slick road menace.

    It was a public-relations nightmare for Snapple, its parent company, Cadbury Schweppes, and CoolBrands International, which were promoting their new "Snapple on Ice" pops by trying to break a Guinness Book record for the "World's Largest Ice Pop."

    Shortly before noon, workers began stacking what was supposed to be a 20-ton, 2 1/2-story tall, kiwi strawberry-flavored Snapple ice pop, which soon melted.

    Snapple spokeswoman Lauren Radcliffe apologized and said Snapple will pay cleanup costs.
