Hawaiian Punch Concentrate
Hawaiian Punch is blended with seven natural fruits including such tropical favorites as pineapple, passion fruit, papaya and guava. In 1934 A.W. Leo, Tom Yates and Ralph Harrison developed the first Hawaiian Punch recipe in a converted garage in Fullerton, Calif. They wanted a tropical-tasting syrup to add to their line of ice cream toppings sold under the trade name Pacific Citrus Products Company. "Leo's Hawaiian Punch," as the brand was called at the time, was sold to area restaurants, soda fountains and ice cream manufacturers. The "Leo's" was dropped from the yellow beverage several years later.
