Del's soft frozen lemonadeRhode Island has many wonderful food and drink traditions with one of the most beloved being Del's Soft Frozen Lemonade.

In a state known for Rhode Island clam cakes, chowder, steamers, Johnny Cakes, coffee milk and hot wieners, Del's Soft Frozen Lemonade might just possess the most familiar name. Often associated with offering thirst-quenching benefits on a hot summer day, Del's Lemonade has transformed the basic lemonade stand into an American success story. Dating back to 1948 in Cranston, Rhode Island, Del's has expanded worldwide with some of the best tasting frozen lemonade on earth. Even with that global presence, Del's will always be associated with Rhode Island. Ask locals about Del's and chances are, they'll know the product quite well -- and quite possibly associate the drink with a special time and place in Rhode Island.

Flavorful and pure, Del's all-natural frozen lemonade has served as a perfect complement for us to special summer day trips in Rhode Island, including walking downtown Newport, enjoying Roger Wheeler State Beach in Narragansett, riding the East Bay Bike Path in Bristol, strolling historic Wickford Village or biking Block Island. The great thing is that although Del's is perfectly compatible to the "good old summertime," Del's Lemonade tastes really good, year-round!

You can find Del's Lemonade in Rhode Island at local franchise shops, markets, restaurants, and on and off the streets with Del's Lemonade trucks. It seems like no matter where you turn in Rhode Island, there's a Del's "Sign of the Lemon."

It's hard to think of a better lemonade
in southern New England, or really anywhere!
