THIS week marked the end of the Sunnyboy era.
Daily Juice Co. confirmed they regrettably were ceasing production of the frozen treat as of August 2016.
The company said this was due to an ongoing reduction in customer demand over many years.
Since the news broke, customers have been reflecting their heartbreak on Twitter and Facebook, with a ‘Save Sunnyboy Ice Blocks’ page created on 27 September.
People have been flocking to the supermarkets to get their hands on the last available products on the shelf.
Port Stephens resident and mother to Medowie family Jan Noake told News of The Area, “We use to have Sunnyboy’s whenever we would take our kids on holidays to Noosa.”
“They were great to have on the beach during hot summers.”
The ice blocks were hugely popular from the 1960’s all the way through to the mid 1990’s, leaving a large variety of saddened customers.
“It’s sad to see old favourites go, even though they were insanely sticky and sometimes difficult to eat.”
“I tried to buy one last box, but since the news broke it looks like everyone else beat me to it,” she said.
