Sunkist is a brand of orange- and lemonade-flavored soft drink launched in 1978.
Sunkist was first licensed by Sunkist Growers to General Cinema Corporation, the leading independent bottler of Pepsi-Cola products at the time. The soft drink was the idea of Mark Stevens, who foresaw the potential based on market research which indicated that, worldwide, orange was the third best selling soft drink flavor (largely due to The Coca-Cola Company’s Fanta brand).
