Remember SunnyD? It Now Comes in Energy Drink Form

Now you can reminiscence about your '90s childhood while getting your energy up!

Perhaps you remember being a kid (or a parent) in the ‘90s, and having a delicious afternoon snack of Dunkaroos or Fruit by the Foot accompanied by the orange-flavored drink known as Sunny Delight. Affectionately known as SunnyD, this drink was a juice staple of the ‘90s, until parents found out that the beverage actually contained less than five percent juice.

Well, SunnyD is back with a vengeance with SunnyD X, a carbonated energy drink that comes in orange, lemon-lime, and fruit punch flavors. The drink, according to Brand Eating, comes in 16-ounce cans and is available at select grocery stores in Boston, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C.

SunnyD X actually doesn’t rely on taurine or caffeine to give consumers an energy boost, says David Zellen,  a representative for Sunny D.

“SunnyD X offers a different kind of pick me up: carbonated energy that is uniquely provided by a combination of three carbohydrates as well as seven B vitamins to help metabolize the carbohydrates into energy," said Zellen. "Simply put, SunnyD X offers the energy teens crave without the ingredients moms tell us concern them, such as caffeine and taurine.”
