Okay, let me start by saying I’m not crazy. But every time I drink Hawaiian Punch, the next day I wake up with a splitting headache. Is it possible? Could it be something with the red dye in the punch? Who knows. But every time I drink that red drink sitting in my kitchen I wake up with an unbelievable headache. I did an experiment and the results came back conclusive for me when it came to punch and headaches. I’ve since stopped drinking it. Has anyone else had this problem?

    OH MY GOODNESS! I just googled “Hawian Punch Headaches” specifically to see if anyone else had this same problem or if it was just me.. I’m suffering from yet another one now actually. I figured maybe it was just because its really high in sugar and usually if I drink juice, its REAL fruit juice… idk but UGHH this sucks

    I know this is way old, but I get headaches right after I drink a glass of fruit punch, but this is mostly due to me having an acute citrus allergy. Maybe you have an allergy to a certain fruit?

    it’s been happening to me for years. i never drink it except on our family movie nights. recently, my mother made up a pitcher, mixing it with frozen minute maid lemonade like she used to do, sometime pink lemonade, sometimes yellow. i spent THE ENTIRE DAY in the bed, just like a wine hangover. even aspirin didn’t help at first. this doesn’t happen with any other drink, including straight up lemonade.

    i won’t forget again.

    i’ve come to the conclusion that it’s not just Hawiian Punch but all “Fruit Punches”. Hawaiian Punch just seems to have a worse effect.
