History for Lemonade With Whole Lemons
The Compagnie de Limonadiers was founded in 1676 in Paris, France, and is thought to be the first “soda” enterprise.
With a monopoly granted to the corporation to sell its own lemonade, merchants began selling the refreshing drink in cups from containers loaded behind them on behalf of Compagnie.
These merchants sold their wares on the city’s streets. In 1833, a carbonated variant of lemonade was introduced.
