That is the initial response of most folks we tell about our newest product, so I thought I should share the thinking behind the product.
The idea for maple lemonade originated during a car ride on the Turnpike. I had a craving for lemonade. It was one of those I just have to stop at the nearest store and buy lemonade and drink the entire bottle right there kind of cravings. So, I stop at the Somerset rest area and purchase a bottle of lemonade. Yay! I go to take a big gulp and satisfy my lemonade craving. Nope, not so much. Instead of lemonade I get sugar water with a hint of lemon. Very unsatisfying.
Later in the week, while grocery shopping, I spot an organic lemonade in the grocery store. This will be able to satisfy my craving. It is organic. They must use lemons. My craving is so intense that as soon as I get into my car I open the bottle. I take a big gulp and.....Fail! It STILL tasted like sugar water with a hint of lemon.
The more I thought about it the more I realized I have never had a good glass of lemonade that wasn't homemade. I decided that homemade lemonade was the solution to my craving. Since I always have maple on my mind the pairing was a natural. A few delicious test runs later and... BOOM... Maple Lemonade was born.
Maple Lemonade is the perfect combination of tart lemon and sweet maple syrup. It is available at all our Farmers' Markets this summer, so stop by, have a glass, and see what all the fuss is about.
