Yesterday I was out all morning enjoying the beautiful fall colors. I planned a picnic lunch with my 2 1/2 year old daughter. I needed a drink to go along with my lunch. So I headed into a Kroger store to find something cold and that I haven’t tried before, and was cheap. So I picked up some Turkey Hill brand lemonade. Turkey Hill is a company out of Pennsylvania that produces many products. They are probably most famous for their ice cream.
The 16 ounce plastic bottle had this message on the label: “A family favorite, our signature lemonade is outstanding refreshment no matter what the season. Succulent lemon with just the right amount of sweetness is what makes Turkey Hill Lemonade stand the test of time” The ingredients are water, high fructose corn syrup, sugar, concentrated lemon juice, lemon pulp, natural lemon flavors, citric acid, potassium sorbate, and sodium benzoate.
I prefer homemade lemonade to store bought, but this one wasn’t too bad. It is a bit on the sweet side and is lacking the nice sweet/tart balance you get from a homemade version. I thought the lemon flavor itself was stronger than you find it most pre-made lemonades. A lot that I have had before just tasted and smelled like lemon dish soap.
Where to Buy
I purchased mine at Kroger. You should be able to find them at any Kroger company store, including Kroger itself, Ralphs, or Food 4 Less. You may also be able to find it at some Target stores.
