I remember reading about these when they were being tested in 2014. I also remember reading articles about how they had more sugar than a can of Coke. I guess they’re done testing. I wonder if they still have more sugar than Coke. (Spotted by Morgan N at Walmart.)

I’m looking at the burgers on the packaging and I think it’s weird that the lettuce and tomato are below the patty. Doesn’t that make it easier for stuff to fall out of the burger. (Spotted by Amanda Y at Target.)

Come on, Pure Leaf. At first, you made the tea for us and put it in bottles. Now you want us to sometimes make our own tea. I’m too lazy for steeping. (Spotted by Carla at Fred Meyer.)

  1. The bigger question, at least for me, is foes this version of Sunny D contain sucralose?! They ruined Sunny D when they started adding that vile artificial sweetener so I had to give up on one of my favorite drinks some years ago along with Hawaiian Punch as well. Hoping the new D will be sucralose and acesulfetame or whatever free! Lol

    1. No thanks. The regular sunny d has 3 artificial sweeteners in it – neotame, sucralose and Acesulfame potassium.

      I already don’t trust it

  2. I love the captions. Regarding the lettuce and tomato being on the bottom, that’s a good hack to keep the burger’s juices from making the bottom bun soggy.

  4. I remember seeing the Sunny D in Big Lots last year and I recall it having artificial sweeteners. Also it was Sunny D energy drinks for a dollar fifty. I’m fine without it. Sunny D isn’t the best brand to be selling energy drinks.
