Looking for the perfect way to quench your thirst on a hot summer day in South County? Look no further then Rhode Island staple: Del's Lemonade!
Great Grandfather DeLucia made the earliest Del’s Frozen Lemonade in 1840 in Naples, Italy. During the winter he carried snow into nearby caves and insulated it with straw. When summer arrived and the local lemons were ripe and flavorful, he mixed their juice with just the right amount of sugar and snow. Thus making a refreshing drink, which he sold at the local market. Fruit ices are popular in Europe, yet none is more loved than the product made from fresh lemon juice. Lemon ices produce the most delicious and thirst-quenching treat. Grandfather Franco DeLucia brought his father’s frozen lemonade recipe to America at the turn of the century. When Angelo’s son, Bruce, entered the family business there were 5 franchises in Rhode Island. Since then, Bruce has made the franchise business flourish and grow. Now, there are many Del’s franchises worldwide providing the refreshing, all natural treat to everyone, anywhere, anytime.
