You want frozen lemonade? Forget Del's. Remember, Del's donated to the Bush campaign, and we all know where that got us.

No, Del's is old hat, now. Now, that I have found the frozen lemonade nirvana that is Mr. Lemon. Make sure to bring a tazer... or a cattleprod. Mr. Lemon is situated in a pretty sketchy neighborhood. In fact, before going, just break your windows now to get it out of the way. It makes it easier for the 14-year-old to steal your GPS. In all honesty, though, parking can be problematic since it's street-side, and traffic on Hawkins can get bad. But trust me, it's worth it.

Mr. Lemon sports some of the best, most flavorful, best textured frozen lemonade I've ever had. I like the texture more than Del's. It's denser, with fewer large ice crystals. It's more snow-like as opposed to the blended ice of Del's. The flavor is also leaps and bounds ahead of the watery-in-comparison competition. And what a selection! Lemon, Blueberry (a favorite), Bubblegum, Cherry, Creamsicle, Lime Ricky, Passion Fruit, Peaches and Cream, Pina Colada, Pina Colada Watermelon, Raspberry, Root Beer, Root Beer Float, Strawberry, Tutti Fruitti, Vanilla, Watermelon, and a number of blends.

If you find yourself in the western side of Providence, this summer, you should definitely try Mr. Lemon.
