2020 was a lemon of a year, which is why SUNNYD, a brand of Harvest Hill Beverage Co., Stamford, Conn., is determined to make summer '21 the sweetest yet for Gen Z, with an added twist.
For a limited-time only this month, the beverage brand is debuting two new flavors suited for the season with classic Lemonade and new Raspberry Lemonade. And the fun doesn't stop there – SUNNYD has teamed up with teen music sensation Johnny Orlando to host its Sweetest Summer Yet TikTok Hashtag Challenge and Contest, giving fans the chance to win a private virtual concert with the singer during the SUNNY-est season of the year.
SUNNYD's Sweetest Summer Yet TikTok Hashtag Challenge and Contest asks fans to show how they're going to make this summer the sweetest yet using #SUNNYandSweet. Whether it is mastering a new sports skill, picking up a long put-off hobby or hanging by the pool, eligible participants are encouraged to get involved and get creative. One grand-prize winner will win a private virtual concert with Orlando and up to 50 of their friends, a SUNNYD summer swag pack and summertime supply of the sunny, sweet beverage. Ten first-prize winners also will win the swag pack and summertime supply of SUNNYD.
"I grew up drinking SUNNYD as a kid, which is why I'm so excited to partner with the brand to announce the new lemonade flavors and bring fans the sweetest summer yet," Orlando said in a statement. "Everyone could use a little sweetness this year more than ever, so I'm looking forward to meeting the one lucky winner and their friends during a private virtual concert later this summer."
SUNNYD's fan-favorite Lemonade is returning to grocery shelves for a third consecutive summer after nearly selling out in years past. Raspberry Lemonade is making its debut as a new twist on the popular tangy-but-sweet lemon sip. Both flavors are available while supplies last at retailers nationwide such as WinCo, Food Giant and Hy-Vee in 64-ounce multi-serve carafes.
"Our limited edition summer flavors have consistently been a big hit with Gen Z, and doubling down on two lemonade options that are synonymous with summer adds a special excitement for the season," said Ilene Bergenfeld, chief marketing officer of Harvest Hill Beverage Co. "We're excited to make a splashy return nationwide and connect even more with our Gen Z audience by having Johnny Orlando on board. With a loyal following of millions of teens, we can't think of anyone better to help kick off the sweetest summer yet."
