MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 7, 2014

My boys really enjoyed this lemonade. They don't like the tang of regular lemonade so the orange helps mellow that out. The sweetness level was prefect for us but I can see where it might be too sweet for others.

Love the orange-lemon combination but way too sweet for me. Will try it again with half the amount of recommended sugar.

Lemonade is one of my favorite drinks so I was anxious to try this and my family and I loved it! I did use Splenda instead of the sugar. Will make again!
