About SunnyD

SunnyD was reverse engineered from the sun.

Okay, that's technically not true, but it does taste great, and every glass gives you 100% Vitamin C, plus B1. That means it's good for you and can help make today a sunny day.

SunnyD History

Back in the day, two friends named Howard and Phil worked together at a juice company. Howard's kids didn't like orange juice. Neither did Phil's. So the two dads were like, huh, maybe we should make something that tastes better? Their kids wanted them to invent homework-free homework too, but Howard and Phil decided to figure out the better-tasting-orange-drink thing first.

No pulp. No tart. All good.

Phil and Howard decided to take out what kids hate about orange juice: pulp and tart. Then they jammed it with what kids love: sweet taste, chuggability and smooth texture.

Bottle Time

Howard wanted to create a bottle worthy of the awesome new orange drink that would go inside it. So, no more heavy glass or paper cartons that leak. Instead, a light plastic bottle that kept things fresh and delicious and was also kinda cool looking.

Vitamins that taste good

Whaaa? Does that even make sense? Yes. SunnyD has Vitamin C. A full day's supply. That means it gives kids a tangy, delicious drink they enjoy, while providing vitamins moms want their kids to have.

Intergalactic taste domination

The attractions of SunnyD quickly spilled over from Florida to all over the country and finally the world. Today, wherever you hear the exuberant sound of active young people, you'll find SunnyD. We once heard a story about a teen that drank some SunnyD on Mars!
