When Life Hands You Lemons...
What do you do when life hands you lemons? Happily accept them and make loads of tasty, wholesome fun!
Whether it’s a classic glass of fresh-squeezed lemonade or the smooth, invigorating cool of Frosted Lemonade—the new creative combination with Chick-fil-A’s signature Icedream®—lemons can be a sweet part of your day.
“We served 121 million cups of lemonade—that’s about 250 million lemons.”
Our lemonade is hand-crafted at each restaurant and made from scratch daily using fresh lemon juice, pure cane sugar and water. This past year, we served 121 million cups of lemonade—that’s about 250 million lemons. We buy more lemons from our friends at Sunkist, the oldest operating citrus cooperative in the U.S., than anyone in the world. In fact, we purchased more lemons from Sunkist than the entire country of Japan!
And this year, with fans’ already enthusiastic response to Frosted Lemonade, we are expecting to squeeze even more—about 300 million lemons.
Dale Carnegie popularized the phrase, “If you have a lemon, make a lemonade.” Let us show you how to do that—and even more. Here are a handful of creative recipes from Sunkist featuring the tart and tasty sweetness of lemons that will keep your taste buds humming:
