I've been a fan of Sunny D since the days that it resided next to the soda and purple stuff in that dude's fridge, and turned unsuspecting kids' skin yellow. It's gone through a few iterations over the years, but has remained decidedly orangey as far as I've seen. But the other day I picked up this interesting red Sunny D, which promises a "sour cherry twist".
This interesting concoction is a combination of orange, strawberry, cherry and lime juices, but it seems that some are more represented than others. There's certainly a hint of all of them at first taste, but the cherry soon becomes pretty bold. It's nice, and certainly has a sour kick, meaning it does what it says on the bottle. But the reason for the sourness soon reared its head, as the lime assaulted my senses and detracted from the other, more palatable flavours. Perhaps I shouldn't complain, I can't moan about a juice drink that promises sourness and then delivers, but it seems like they went a little overboard. This is a nice, juicy drink, with some good fruits thrown in to good effect, but the lime does overwhelm a bit too much at the end. It certainly left me with a sour taste in my mouth (har har), but it's well worth a try.
