Lemonade Stands: why not Soda Stands? Sun, 03/17/13 9:43 AM (permalink)
A friend who is has a bit of a phobia about germs, long ago, managed to get me to never drink lemonade from a kid's lemonade stand (I'll buy it, especially from fundraisers, pretend to take a sip and like it, and toss it as soon as I'm out of sight). Essentially, especially if there is no adult present, kids are not famous for their sanitary habits.
But, a number of years back, I took a look at the numbers. Lemonade, other than the questionable sanitation, is relatively expensive to make, especially compared to cans of soda bought on sale or using store brands. It would not only be far more sanitary, but also far more potentially profitable, if the kids sold cans of soda instead of home made lemonade.
Yet, you never see kids with a front yard "soda stand." So, I figure there is a good probability that there are factors that I am not seeing.
Can anybody enlighten me?
