Hawaiian Punch may be the most well-known fruit punch drink ever. Believe it or not, Hawaiian Punch actually started as a topping for ice cream when it was launched in 1934. The founders, A.W. Leo and Tom Yates, developed a tropical-tasting syrup to add as one of the flavors for their ice cream toppings business. The primary ingredients for this topping were shipped from Hawaiian to Fullerton where the founders were doing business. Naturally, the name “Hawaiian Punch” comes from where the ingredients were sourced from.

Eventually, fans of Hawaiian Punch found out that the concentrate of the punch tasted pretty amazing when combined with water. In 1950, the concentrate, which was not previously readily available to consumers, began to be sold in grocery stores. Hawaiian Punch quickly became popular as a fruit punch drink brand.
