Why buy that "Sunny Dee" stuff that always has that fake flavor to it for relatively big bucks? I've discovered if you take a regular can of OJ concentrate, which I get at a local Aldi's (a Mecca for frugal food shoppers!) for $1.29, combine with a 10-cent packet of dollar store lemonade mix (do NOT use the orange drink stuff or you'll get that "Sunnie Dee" funny flavor) and 4 packs of sweetener or proportional amount of sugar and add a gallon of COLD water, you'll get a concoction that tastes a heck of a lot like "regular" real orange juice for a fraction of the cost.
I wonder if people read the label stating what is in Sunny D and the number of calories. I drink the real stuff, orange juice, not Sunny D junk.
I never liked the Sunny D stuff either *yuck :P*. (I thought I was the only one!) But this mix sounds pretty good and a lot better for you, too. I think I will give it a try and see if the family likes it. Thanks for sharing!
Great ideas for the OJ. Thanks.

This sounds like a good way to make an orangeaide drink, but remember if you are diluting the OJ you are diluting the nutrients too. Of course, if you are using this for mix, nutrition is not one of the main things you are worrying about!!! LOL
