Yes, I am a child of the 50's/60's. We used to buy it either as a soft drink or as a concentrate in the grocery store. I always liked it because it had a dry taste. I have a new group and I am trying to get recipes from every state. It's called USA State Recipes. Check it out if you get the chance and post a state named recipe.
Thanks!

I grew up in Delaware and have never heard of Delaware Punch... so I just googled it... a bottled drink by the Coca Cola Company... apparently Delaware Punch is a southern thing, like Texas or Louisiana... weird. Do this mean there's no Hawaiian Punch in Hawaii?? :?

Probably so. lol Delaware punch was so good but you just can't buy it anymore. Since you are from Delaware I hope that you will join my group USA State Recipes. Please post a Delaware recipe. I would certainly appreciate it. By the way, I also grew up drinking Sun- Drop Cola. They are now bringing that back but it just doesn't taste the same as it did when I was a kid!

Years ago I remember my neighbor making a recipe with Delaware punch and other types of juice. Does anyone have a clue what they could have been. She has long since passed and the recipe has been lost. It was the best punch I ever had.

I loved the taste of it. Seems like it was kind of dry with a cranberry-grape flavor. You could either get the syrup concentrate at the grocery store or buy it in bottles like soda pop.

You can buy it at Walmart. The sugar content is so high it'll give you a buzz for days. Real twangy flavor.
