Sunkist is a fizzy orange drink that is produced by the Vimto Company. It is described as being an "orange flavoured soft drink with sugar and sweeteners".
Sunkist promises drinkers the taste of California.
As with alot of fizzy drinks, Sunkist comes in an aluminium tin can. The can differs from the one in the dooyoo picture. It is bright and noticable. The Sunkist logo is in big white letters with a blue border. The rest of the can goes for a summer theme with orange and yellow flower motifs.
The can has a ring pull lid. Other information on the can includes ingredients, nutrition and details of how to contact the company.
Carbonated water, sugar, citric acid, natural flavouring, acidity regulator, sweeteners, preservative, stabiliser, antioxidant and colour.
A 330ml standard can contains :

Sunkist isn't widely available though you may be able to pick it up in bargain stores. B&Ms charge 25p per can!
Fizzy orange juice is a drink I associate with Summertime. Something a bit different to Irn Bru and Coca Cola. Shopping in B&Ms today, I spotted Sunkist. I remember it from my childhood. I used to favour Fanta over Sunkist but over the years, I feel Fanta has changed and is no longer as refreshing. I picked up 2 cans of Sunkist and popped them in the fridge when I got home. Now I have a can perfectly chilled beside me.
The can is bright and attractive and certainly nicer than the plain orange offering that Fanta give us. Opening the can, there is a satisfying hiss of bubbles and the juice is certainly fizzy. I choose to drink mine out the can but for review purposes, I pour some into a cup and noticed it was quite pale compared to Fanta. Taste is the most important factor though.
Bring the can to my face, you catch a whiff of strong and sweet orange and most like cheap orangeade. The taste is quite orangey and overly sweet. The fizz goes really quickly so it is best to drink this quick. The taste isn't quite as intense as Fanta but provides a refreshing Summer drink all the same.
The one thing I am not keen on is the aftertaste which is incredibly sweet and kind of artificial.
At 20g sugar this is not healthy so consume in small amounts. 25p a can is cheap though I would rather spend more on something decent.
Overall I am not entirely impressed with Sunkist, it isn't as nice as it used to be but could go down freezing cold on a hot day (I hear you ask eh?).
Thanks for reading
