Del's lemonade in Venice

Any former Rhode Islanders besides me excited about this? Anyone?

For the uninitiated, Del's frozen lemonade = Proust's madeleine for almost any kid who spent summers in RI.

  1. Wow this means I don't have to be gorged @ silverlake Wine for the Packets of Del's Mix. I wonder if they will have Autocrat Coffee Syrup too.

      That would be nice. And if I could also get a half dozen clamcakes in a greasy brown paper bag, I'd be completely transported.

        Yea, good luck with that. Try, I just ordered a bunch of canned quahogs, NE split buns and some Del's of course. Forget driving around LA trying to find something close.

        PS Clamcakes at my house in about 2 weeks!!

    2. Got Del's frozen lemonade mix as a gift from a friend traveling in RI. Delish esp on hot summer days.

      1. Like the frozen lemonade you get at the ball park?

            What's a slush puppy - a hush puppy or a slushie?!

                Okay, then, guess it's s hybrid of a slushee and a sno cone.

        2. what What WHAT?!?

          oh man maybe I can stay in La for a while!!! Del's!!! I grew up on this stuff!!!!

          1. Had a jumbo Del's today... heaven. I got out of the car and must've looked like one of the chimps in the opening of 2001 because the girl laughed and said, "You must be from Rhode Island". Reminded me of badgering my parents to take me to the Del's in Lincoln at least 4 times a week every summer. They said they'll even have the pretzels soon. Now someone open an Aunt Carries out here!
