Sunnyboy ice blocks. R.I.P.
We can't believe it!!!
The Daily Drinks Co who produce the classic Sunnyboy have announced that they are ceasing production of the icy treat saying their has been a "sustained reduction in consumer demand” over time.
“The Daily Juice Co can confirm that we have regrettably had to make the hard decision to stop production of the icy treat, Sunnyboy, as of August 2016,” a spokesperson for the company said.
“Unfortunately, Sunnyboy has experienced a sustained reduction in consumer demand over a long period, making it necessary to delete the product from our range of water ice treats.”
Sunnyboys were well known for their distinctive tetrahedral shape, and have been a summer favourite for generations who bought them from tuck shops, stores and milk bars across Australia.

The flavours were never called by their flavour, more by shortened or distinctive names.
Raspberry was known as ‘Razz’, lime is a ‘zap’ and cola was called ‘Glug.’
There was even a pineapple flavour called ‘Pow’ which was best known was ‘Big Daddy’ in the 90s.
There is some positive news; the Daily Juice Co say customers are ‘still be able to purchase all our other popular brands, including Zooper Dooper and Quelch.’
But still. We'll miss you Sunnyboys....
