Reviews for Sunny Orange Lemonade
Sort By :
"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."
"This was very refreshing."
"The orange really rounds out the flavor - loved it!"
"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!"
