Maroon 5 is at it again! The band just doesn’t seem to stop when it comes to helping others (and we definitely don’t want them to!). Recently, the band collaborated with Snapple and created their own flavor ‘Tea Will Be Loved’ to benefit Feeding America.

Named after one of their hits ‘She Will Be Loved,’ the band launched the project last Friday in Times Square at the Hard Rock Café. They didn’t just stand by either, according to frontman Adam Levine it wasn’t a way to just raise cash, but they got their “taste buds dirty” and shared something they liked with fans.

“After lots of taste-testing, we each chose our favorite flavor and combined them to create Snapple Tea Will Be Loved to benefit Feeding America,” Levine said.

All proceeds from the tea go straight to Feeding America, a hunger relief charity that feeds people in need all across the country. Maroon 5 also just donated $250,000 to the organization.

“It was fun, it was really cool,” Levine told E! News. “Some flavors we made tasted like s–t, some tasted amazing. The whole thing was a fun, charitable idea.”

Are you excited to taste the special tea and to help out a worthy charity? Keep an eye out because the tea hits shelves TODAY, Aug. 31!

    Sadly Snapple still uses high fructose corn syrup. Don’t be fooled by simply sugar listed in the ingredients. They took part in the FDA change that allows high fructose corn syrup to be listed as sugar. Only if the ingredients specify cane or organic sugar does it not contain high fructose corn syrup.

      “They took part in the FDA change that allows high fructose corn syrup to be listed as sugar.”
      thanks for this info. Thats really horrible, to see this corruption of the law by big business.
      Its the same with so called “non dairy creamers” which have ingredients derived from milk in it, but because of the powerful milk lobby and corrupt politicians, they can legally label these creamers as “non dairy”.
