Any fans here? 1/2 lemonade, 1/2 ice tea, we sell quite a bit, suprising, but I must say, I enjoy them!

    I don't drink them, but I find some amusement when my 55 year old brother orders one for himself and his wife.
     
    I like my tea straight up.  Sweet.

        Yes, I enjoy it, too.  Tried to get Chick-Fil-A to serve me one (they sell both fresh-squeezed lemonade and ice tea), and they refused.  Couldn't get a reason why.   It would be a NATURAL for them.

          Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that Palmer plays golf for money on Sundays.

              You know, they'd do really well on the sale if they sold me one and charged for a lemonade.  Simply charge for the more expensive drink and dilute it with cheap tea.  They win and I get the drink I want.

                Costco Lunch-----Polish Sausage, onions and deli mustard. Arnold Palmers from the Soda Machine (sometimes a little strange if they have the flavored tea instead of the straight iced tea. Arnold Palmer's just the thing to go with the dog!

                  I dont like lemon in my iced tea, so I dont think I would like it.It is, however, a huge seller where I work.But I guess I should try it sometime.
                  Mellow-thats the silliest thing I ever heard. Why wouldnt they do that????? If, when I served beverages from behind the counter, and a customer wanted every damn thing I had mixed, I would do it(sometimes with a quizzical look on my face)

                      Jungle Jim's had a sale on the cans one week, and I loved it in the cans.
                      Then a sale on the 1/2 gallon version the next week, and that had NO lemonade taste.
                      I get the zero calorie version.
                       
                      This is made by Arizona tea company and is Gluten Free, so can be drank by my Celiac grand daughter.
                      The canned version makes a good mixer with a shot of whatever you choose in it.
                      I just got back from Austin and learned to like 'Texas Tea' really fast.

                              Let me see if I understand you correctly. Because I can't stand lemon in my iced tea I am closed-minded for not wanting the taste of lemon in my iced tea. Is that about it?

                                I can not stand lemon in my iced tea, but I like Arnold Palmers.  Now if someone does not like lemon aide and/or iced tea at all then I would expect them to not like it.

                                    Gee, I don't know. I don't like the taste of lemon with iced tea. Seems to me that lemonade probably tastes sort of lemony. So if it's in iced tea ... well?

                                        I've seen them in the can made by Arizona but the idea just doesn't appeal. I might try one though as I try not to close my mind to new idea's.

                                              Mellow-thats the silliest thing I ever heard. Why wouldnt they do that????? If, when I served beverages from behind the counter, and a customer wanted every damn thing I had mixed, I would do it(sometimes with a quizzical look on my face)

                                              I get quizzical looks most every time I place an order.  Interestingly, legend has it the first time Arnold Palmer ordered a mixture of lemonade and tea, he was refused.  And it wasn't even Chick-Fil-A!

                                                Dont worry-I have alerted the media already that Mr. Hoffman, myself and Mar dont like lemon in their tea, so they probably wouldnt like lemonade in it either. I have had 5 requests for interviews...will post the link once I know air dates.

                                                          Is it the BBC?? Being a Tea topic and all, if it is BBC, let me know, I know how to get a short interview for you!
