What is the Apple Juice TikTok trend?
Newly-launched Martinelli’s Apple Juice PET bottle supposedly mimics a live apple when you take a bite. Yes, there’s no practical reason to take a bite off a plastic bottle, but TikTokers seem to have made a trend out of it.
Thousands of users have been buying Martinelli’s apple juice to do the TikTok challenge — just like the TikToker below — and posting their disbelief.

Is it a lip-sync trick?
TikTok is the leading short video-sharing platform on the planet, and it didn’t get to the top only by hosting authentic videos. So, it’s perfectly natural to question the authenticity of this new trend.
Given how adept users are at making their videos believable, lip-syncing to a sound of an apple — taking a bite off it — doesn’t seem too far fetched. However, in this particular case, there’s no lip-syncing involved.
Does the Apple Juice bottle really make the bite sound?
Weird as it is, the new Martinelli’s Apple Juice PET bottle actually makes that *crunch* sound, just like a real apple. It’s an ingenious marketing trick from Martinelli’s, and we believe it has worked even better than they had imagined.
How does it work?
TikTok user, “@iconiccpinkk,” shed light on the mysterious Martinelli’s Apple Juice and demonstrated its working principle. As explained by the TikToker, Martinelli’s is using three layers of plastic at one side of the bottle, which, when pressed hard — like when someone’s biting on it — makes that satisfying apple-bite noise. It’s simple, genius, and definitely worth having a TikTok trend over!
Where to buy TikTok Apple Juice?
You can buy in online stores like Amazon, Costco, Target, Walmart, and Kroger, among others.
