Our Product

Every day, we squeeze fresh lemons and mix the juice according to Angelo DeLucia’s exacting formula to produce Del’s Mix which is of consistent quality and taste. We add no artificial flavorings or colorings. The great taste of Del’s Frozen Lemonade comes from the freshness and quality of the ingredients. The Del’s Mix is then refrigerated to preserve its quality until it is shipped to a Del’s location. As an alternative, we have created a dry Del’s mix for franchises located a long distance from Del’s headquarters.

At each Del’s location, we rigorously enforce strict cleanliness standards, careful handling of the Del’s Mix, and proper methods of freezing the mixture to preserve the goodness already built in. Del’s Frozen Lemonade is made in small batches throughout the day in a special machine according to our exacting instructions so as to ensure the finest and freshest product. When your business is built around a single product, it must be perfect every time!

We also sell a small number of other items, all designed to be good accompaniments to Del’s Frozen Lemonade and to give you a good return. Among these products are pretzels, nachos, and chips.  Our price is reasonable, our product wholesome and delicious. Our growth and our success rest on that simple formula.
