I drank the original a few times as a kid and really liked it but this stuff is toxic! I can’t believe anyone could drink this after reading the ingredients! Look at the first 3 ingredients-water, high fructose, and corn syrup. And it contains less than 2 % of any juices! I made this on accident once and it really tasted just like Sunny D to me only healthy!
Here is the original Sunny Delight ingredients:

Healthy Sunny Delight
juice of 2 oranges
juice of 1 lemon
2 packets stevia
1 1/2 cups water
* This makes juice for 1 person, about a 16 oz size cup
* In the original Sunny D there is lime and grapefruit so a squeeze of each of those would be good too but really it tastes the same to me with only the oranges and lemon.
