Ewww! Hawaiian Punch has switched to using sucralose.

Hawaiian Punch has switched to using sucralose.

I’m not talking about the “diet” version – I’m talking about the regular version. Some (but not all) of the high fructose corn syrup (which is worse than sugar) has been replaced with sucralose. The result is that the drink is less thick than it used to be, and there’s also an aftertaste.

The switch a long time ago from sugar to high frucstose corn syrup was already bad enough – the introduction of sucralose is far worse.

    This is despicable, and many companies are following suit. I think the motivation is twofold: one, they can tout a lower calorie count on the bottle (you may have noticed that they have a big “only 70 calories per serving!” on the label) and two, I suspect that sucralose might be cheaper than sugar or hfcs.

    Ugh. I am sooo tired of this trend. Most of my favorite drinks are being contaminated with artifical sweeteners. And the company’s doing it are SNEAKY. I can always tell by the taste, espically when it’s a drink I have been enjoying for decades, like Hawaiian Punch. They never list it in the ingredient list until the very bottom, and Sucralose is usually the culprit. Bring back to original formula please, with NATURAL sugar, and let me decide what is healthy for my body please.

    Hawaiian punch and most other soft drinks taste like garbage and they wonder why sales are slumping.

    You know those artificial sweeteners are supposed to really bad for you. Even worse than actual sugar, but yeah I’d agree that it’s disgraceful that they started using it in Hawaiian Punch.

    Such a shame! One of the greatest drinks of all time. Now there is less of it on store shelves they must be loosing market share. All to be politically correct?! Terrible. I won’t be buying it any more unless they go back to the original recepie. 😭 sad 😭
