Did You Love Bob’s Old Fashioned Lemonade Too?
Today is National Lemonade Day and I’m happy to celebrate it since lemonade is one of my favorite drinks. I’ll take a glass of lemonade any day of the year, but please, not that watered down stuff pretending to be lemonade. Give me the real deal like when I was a kid.
All this celebrating got me thinking about my favorite lemonade as a kid. Do you remember Bob’s Old Fashioned Lemonade? It was in the Riverside Mall and I think it was next to a store that sold jeans. The name escapes me right now. Bob’s sold not only lemonade but ice cream too. Back to the lemonade for a minute. It wasn’t out of a bottle. They squeezed the lemons while you waited and added the ice and syrup. Sooooo good. Their ice cream was yummy too. Vanilla or chocolate ice cream(it was square, remember?) on a stick dipped in chocolate and then rolled in peanuts. Just in case the chocolate dripped, they’d put this little white paper on the bottom of the stick. I could go for a lemonade and ice cream from Bob’s right now. How about you? Do you remember it?
