Dracula meets Sunny D in this 2008 advert: “Unleash the power of the sun”.
Sunny Delight, marketed as SunnyD in some regions, is an orange-coloured drink developed by Doric Foods of Mount Dora, Florida in 1963. It was purchased by Procter & Gamble in 1989. The drink produced an estimated $450 million in revenue for Procter & Gamble in 2004. In 2005, Sunny Delight was spun off into the independent Sunny Delight Beverages Company (SDBC).
The beverage was launched in the United Kingdom in Spring 1998 with a £10 million promotional campaign, and became the third biggest selling drink in the UK, behind Coca-Cola and Pepsi. It was sold in refrigerated cabinets and marketed as a healthy alternative to soft drinks, although it contains only 5% juice: its main ingredients are water and corn syrup.
