All About Sunny D

Main Image

Way back in the last century, two dads in Florida were walking along the beach discussing their kids, as fathers do. Their names were Howard Dick and Phil Grinnell.

Florida is known as ‘the sunshine state’ for a reason. The sun shines nearly every day and the oranges there are super-juicy and delicious.

“I wish my kids would drink more orange juice,’ Howard (may have) said to Phil. “I don’t want them to drink soda all day. But they don’t like the ‘bits’ and they complain it’s too tart.”

“We should make a new kind of orange drink,” Phil suggested. “A drink with all the goodness and taste of Florida sunshine that the kids will love.”

And so Sunny D was created, bringing a splash of Florida sunshine around the world. Fifty years later we are still keeping it sunny with our delicious juice drinks.

Fast-forward to the 21st century

Today Sunny D is enjoyed around the world. The Sunny D Super Team have a talented group of tasters and tinkerers who love to come up with new ideas - just like Howard and Phil. 

We wouldn’t dream of messing with the original. Why fix what ain’t broke? Tangy Florida is still our classic creation. But we took the spirit of Florida and added some modern touches. Today you can also choose from Juicy Orange Passion, with an extra exotic twist, and Smooth California, smooth tasting and bursting with flavour.
