    Default "Sunny Delight" Storage

    My kids like the Sunny Delight beverage, but I don't normally buy it because of the cost. Through today Kroger has it as part of their "Buy 8 products sale" for $0.59 each. With a coupon I can get the price down to .27 for a 64oz. Sunny D can be on the shelf in the store, but it says to refrigerate after purchase. Has anyone ever stored Sunny D out of the refrigerator for short-term storage? The use by dates are mid-October, with six of us drinking it we will go through what I buy by then. Any help would be appreciated as I want to go back to the store this afternoon.

    Thanks

    Here's info from their website:
    Do I need to refrigerate my SunnyD?

    Well, it depends on the variety. Most varieties of SunnyD must be refrigerated after purchase, except for SunnyD in 12-pack cans and 2-liter bottles. To be sure, please check the label for refrigeration information.If you bought your SunnyD and it wasn't in the refrigerator, don't worry! All varieties and sizes of SunnyD, except SunnyD with Calcium, can be kept on shelf for up to 18 days.Be sure to drink SunnyD by the date stamped on the bottle; this is a "Best if Used By" date.

    All I can picture is a Sunny Delight Homemade Whiskey Sour being served AFTER the expiration date. lol What a great buy though, fabulous price.

    You should be fine keeping it until the expiration date at room temp.
    I got a good deal on some sunny d a couple of years ago.
    I had about 30 bottles of it sitting in the spare bedroom for about 3 months it was fine not one bottle went bad.

    I would just make sure that the temp in your storage area does not fluctuate to much.
    I would not keep it in the garage at 100 degrees.

    Thanks I did go back and get some more, not 30 bottles worth LOL. I don't have much storage space. I got 5 more to go with the 3 I had already bought. I figured that they 'could' be stored unopened at room temperature.

    Thanks

    2 of my kids love sunny d, when I find it on sale I will stock up a little and we store them in the walkway to the basement. I figure I bought them when they were sitting in the middle of the store (not refrigerated) so it wouldn't be a problem to store them out of fridge.

    That is a good deal, wish I could find it like that around here.
