Did You Remember Bob’s Old Fashioned Lemonade At Utica’s Riverside Mall?
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?
