This was an orangy tang sort of flavor and it came out around 1983 or 1984. It was my all time favorite!!!

We used to mix it with orange juice on ice during the summer. Oh it was good.

That was the best flavor ever...if you mix 1 pack of pink lemonade and 1 pack of orange Kool Aid together it tastes and looks just like Sunshine Punch.

Sunshine Punch was my favorite when I was little. When I was a high schooler, Great Bluedini was da bomb.

The Recipe posted above from Mel31 (May 20, 2008) is close, Very close but still there is a hint of something missing. After I Googled it, there are some recipes using Cherry along with Orange and Pink Lemonade but It Is Not Right at all! Orange and just Lemonade isn't right either.

I miss sunshine punch. Of all the flavors to discontinue why that one? It was awesome!
Amanda - August 09, 2010 - Report this comment
This was one GIANT mistake, for Kool-Aid to cut this one out, along with Rainbow Punch!
Jojo - January 24, 2011 - Report this comment
I have tryed to recreate the flavor of sunshine punch and what has worked the best seems to be a mixture of oramge and lemon-lime kool-aid. Although the coloring is a lot off it seems to fit the bill when I have a hankering for my favorite flavor from the past :-)

So nice to know that Sunshine Punch was not a flavor I dreamed up in my head!!! I used to LOVE that stuff, but none of my friends seem to remember it!

I always thought of Sunshine Punch as orange-pineapple. Yes, we drank it by the bucketful. Now we mix one packet of orange and one pineapple koolaide. Pineapple is hard to find, but not gone.

I LOVED this drink. They should really bring back some of the nostalgic flavors as they were like Sunshine Punch, Apple and the original Raspberry. Kids aren't the only ones who love Kool-Aid.

with all this stuff from the 70s and 80s becoming popular again some company would clean up if they brought some of these flavors back.

I found this link when searching for Sunshine Punch. This page is a petition to bring it back! All you guys sign it, and we may get our yummy tangy 5 fruity flavors all in one! No mixing flavors... although orange lemonade and 2 shakes of mango has gotten me there. :)

I have been missing Sunshine Punch since I was a kid. It was my favorite. My brother and my four cousins also considered it their favorite. I wish they'd bring it back.

I hated sunshine punch...It was so gross.Kraft Thank you so much for discontinuing this flavor! Mom used to have to make me a different pitcher of another flavor when she made this stuff.
