Call off the hunt. I have found the perfect snack for a hot, hot Florida day: Minute Maid Frozen Lemonade and Orangeade!
These have been around the parks for YEARS, but I couldn’t give up my addiction to that soft, gushy Frozen Lemonade to try these Minute Maid versions. Now it’s time to take a closer look!
Minute Maid Frozen Lemonade and Orangeade
The soft frozen lemonade is available in three different varieties — regular Lemonade, Strawberry Lemonade, and Orangeade.
The soft frozen snacks come in 12-ounce portions, which are pretty large actually. While sampling these, I regularly wrapped the cup in paper towels and stuck it into a cup holder on my camera bag to let it get a little more melty before digging in again.
The ingredient list appears right on the cup. This is especially handy if you follow a special diet. That brings up another excellent point: these soft frozen lemonades are sealed, so they’re a great option if you are worried about cross contamination from other ingredients.
You can also see the nutritional information at a glance, and see that the orangeade contains 28% juice.
Once I popped the plastic lid off the paper cup, I could see that the cup was completely full to the top. The consistency is more similar to sorbet than to frozen lemonade. You aren’t sipping this through a straw; it will definitely require a spoon.
I tried the Orangeade first. And the taste? Awesome. Frozen orange juice is one of my favorite flavors, and this frozen orangeade captures that tangy-sweet, deep orange flavor perfectly.
We also tried the Strawberry Lemonade.
First of all, it’s absolutely gorgeous. But then you dig in — and it’s a winner! I love the tart flavor of lemonade, but the strawberry adds just a little sweetness, and the berry flavor gives it an extra flavor dimension.
Definite thumbs up for both of these! They’re light and refreshing — no cream or super richness to leave you feeling blah in the Florida sun.
They’re icy cold, but the soft solid means that you won’t suck all of the flavor out and leave the ice behind. They’re a completely different animal than frozen lemonade drinks, and equally as delicious!
