Sunny Delight bares about as much relationship to a refreshing, thirst quenching drink as freshly bottled urine. The wholesome image portrayed in the televevision advertising is – we think – a load of hooey! We tried this concoction – New Orange Outburst – and found it… well frankly disgusting. It left a chemical aftertaste like toxic waste that lingered for well over half an hour and the flavour itself was synthetic and unpleasant with very little similarity to orange outbursting or otherwise and none at all to fresh orange juice. In the end it called for good old fashoined water to rinse out the mouth. If you have read the fine print on the side of the label, you will have noticed the ingredeints which are as follows.

Most importantly it tastes awful but would you want your kids to drink this stuff. Talk about getting you hooked. This drink is owned by a very well known cola company who know just what they are doing. Now we’re not telling you to stop drinking it – if you must, though you must have deadened taste buds – we’re just saying, read the bottle first. Enjoy!
