All opinions are mine alone. #WhereFunBegins #CollectiveBias**Orange Poke Cake I vividly remember being a kid and having the refreshing SunnyD as my drink of choice after some outside fun. Do you all remember those days? Who can forget that simply fabulous orange drink. We’ll guess what- SunnyD is back! Yes, now you can share your love for SunnyD with your kids. I was so excited to hear about SunnyD being back that I immediately headed to my local Sam’s Club to get some for my kids! Orange Poke Cake   On a hot spring day, I went into my local Sam’s Club and found the 24ct. pack at a local end cap near the refrigerator section. It brought back so many fond memories to actually see them on the store shelves and to put them in my carts. The 24 count pack is a perfect size for our family! Best part is by buying them at Sam’s Club, I am saving money! They are currently at the highest rollback price from $5.38 vs. the original retail price of $5.98. A true score for a great drink if you ask me! unnamed-7 When we got home, I wanted to introduce my kiddos to them. After one sip, Zane was hooked. I knew he would be because I was totally hooked as a kid. He immediately asked me if I could put one in his lunch box every day this week. Of course Zane! He knows deliciousness like I do! unnamed-5Then Hayley wanted to get in on the action so I told her we could do some baking with SunnyD. After all SunnyD is unapologetically fun! There is no doubt that having SunnyD after playing outside all summer, will allow us to have fun in the sun with a spectacular drink! Both her and I thought it might be fun to try a SunnyD Orange Poke Cake. She was my little baker and helper in this process so a lot of credit can be given to her.

    That’s a great idea. Can you believe I’ve never had a poke cake? Crazy… I know. :) I’m willing to make up for lost time. ;)

    Poke cakes are so good and moist! I can imagine adding SunnyD really adds a punch of orange flavor. My kids love SunnyD – so do the grandkids.

    How delicious! Believe it or not, I have never baked a cake before (not much of a cake person), but I wouldn’t mind trying something like this.

  7. says

    Great variation on a cake. You could add SunnyD to a lot of things and make them all better. We like to do it with lemon lime soda as a punch.
