SunnyD Isn't Orange Juice. Here's Why
By Angel Albring
The bright orange, sweet, citrusy flavored SunnyD, also known as Sunny Delight, was first introduced in the United States in 1964. In the 1990s, SunnyD became a trendy beverage among children and teenagers, and a cartoon mascot named "Sunny" helped to market it.
While the classic SunnyD is an orange-flavored drink, it is not 100% real orange juice. It's a mixture of water, high fructose corn syrup, and a small amount of orange juice concentrate, as well as other flavors.
SunnyD does not have the same nutritional value as real orange juice, even if it does offer a similar taste. Natural orange juice is a good source of vitamin C, potassium, and fiber, while SunnyD has none of that and is also high in added sugar and calories.
