Why doesn’t Hawaiian punch get cold?


Hawaiian Punch was created in 1934 by AW Leo, Tom Yeats, and Ralph Harrison as an ice cream topping in a converted garage in Fullerton, California, and customers later discovered that it was an appealing drink when mixed with water. Yeats and Harrison Pacific Hawaii products formed to make the drink.

RJ Reynolds Tobacco Company bought Pacific Hawaiian in 1962 Procter & Gamble bought Hawaiian Punch from Del Monte Foods , spun off from RJR Nabisco in 1989, in 1990 Procter & Gamble sold Hawaiian Punch to Cadbury Schweppes in 1999. Dr Pepper Snapple was spun off from Cadbury Schweppes in 2008.


In 1962, the Atherton-Privett advertising agency managed a 20-second commercial to advertise a Hawaiian Punch drink. The commercial was produced by John Urie and Associates in Hollywood. Jean Guy Jacques was the director; Bob Guidi and John Urie designed the two characters, Punchy and Affi. Ross Martin did Punchy’s voice: “Hey! How about a nice Hawaiian punch? ” And John Urie did Affi line“ Sure ”. Rod Scribneranimates the commercials. Sam Cornell also worked on the later versions. Affi never learned to say “no” and he was always punched. The commercial ended with Punchy leaning on a can of Hawaiian Punch and saying, “Wasn’t that a refreshing commercial?” The commercial won many awards. After airing in February 1962 on The Tonight Show with Jack Paar, the Punchy commercial was so special that Jack Paar said, “Let’s play that again … the second time is free.”
