We got some soda, OJ, purple stuff, Sunny Delight ... Vodka Seltzer!?

Not to be outdone by the wide array of soft drinks gone hard, SunnyD enters the market with their own hard seltzer. Sure beats pulling the "purple stuff" out of the fridge. Unless of course the "purple stuff" is a Grape Gatorade.

Anyway, this drink changes everything about Saturday morning cartoons and wiffle ball games out in the backyard. What was once sweet and innocent - and if we're being honest, a bit plastic tasting - is now a boozy canned cocktail ready for foldable chairs and lounging.

We can't say that we're really surprised that the Harvest Hill Beverage Company, the parent of the SunnyD brand, has designed, market tested and approved this hard seltzer for sale and consumption. After all, they are in business to make a dollar.

Nostalgia sells. That's why there is a Mountain Dew Hard Seltzer. Perhaps there is a Moxie Hard Seltzer on the way. But you know what would be killer, especially considering the portfolio of Harvest Hill?

Little Hug Fruit Barrel Hard Seltzers. You heard it here first, folks. You heard it here first.

It's now the good stuff that adults will go for. Because in order to purchase SunnyD now, you need to be 21+. All of this said, we prefer our sips of sunshine to be, well, Lawson's Sip of Sunshine.

But hey, SunnyD has done well to stay relevant after 60 years in existence (1963 origin). And why not a ready to drink canned vodka cocktail? They have SunnyD Skittles, might as well have this.
