History

Haitai Beverage Co. was established in 1973 as a fruit processor. The company added Sunny 10 drinks to its product line in 1976. The "10" refers to the 10% fruit juice used as an ingredient.

Haitai is the third-largest seller of soft drinks in Korea. The company was purchased by Asahi Brewery in 2004 then sold in 2011 when sales slumped. It is now a subsidiary of LG Household & Health Care, which also owns Coca-Cola Korea Bottling.

Review

This smells like a Jolly Rancher candy - and tastes like one too!

I assume "pine" means pineapple, but this tastes more like the green apple Jolly Rancher: its very sweet, but also sour on the tongue like a tart apple. This drink really bears little resemblance to pineapple in any way.

All in all, its not much more than liquified candy, with an artificial taste, and way too much sweetener. Maybe this is supposed to be a lime flavor? In any case, its lost me, just a sour uninteresting candy drink.
