August 20th is National Lemonade Day, a celebration of one of the world’s most refreshing, tart, tangy, and delicious summer beverages. And, who doesn’t have fond childhood memories of running their own lemonade stand? A cool glass of lemonade is pure joy and the perfect time to stop, relax, and celebrate life’s small moments.
A father-and-daughter team started National Lemonade Day. The daughter wanted to purchase a turtle but didn’t have enough money, and the father wanted to teach his daughter business skills, financial literacy, and entrepreneurship. So the father helped his daughter learn valuable lessons by allowing her to start and operate her own lemonade stand, and her neighbors, friends, and customers enjoyed summer’s most popular and enduring drink. At the same time, a new national day was created. And the daughter got that turtle.
A Brief History of One Of The World’s Most Popular Beverages:
A New Twist On An Old World Taste Is Born
Our signature Lemoncello Chocolate Almonds draw inspiration from one of Italy’s most popular, treasured, and delicious after-dinner lemony drinks, Italy’s limoncello liqueur. We combined four great tastes–white chocolate and lemon, lemon creme, and almonds- to deliver a perfect summer taste. Generations of our family have enjoyed the taste of limoncello, and now you can too, but in a candy.
Two Great Tastes Combine For Fun
Sconza Chocolates, the makers of the finest, tastiest candy favorites, make the perfect candy for celebrating National Lemonade Day or any day where you just want to enjoy the singular, mouth-watering, and refreshing taste of lemon, white chocolate, and almonds.

Open your own lemonade stand. Families can have fun together, and the kids can learn how to run a business, learn financial literacy, budget, and serve their friends and neighbors. Consider raising and donating the proceeds to your favorite charity or cause.
And for an extra fun touch, include some delicious Lemoncello Chocolate Almonds with their treats. Finally, maybe build a lemon display with uncut, fresh-cut lemons and other fruit assortments. So have fun with National Lemonade Day and smile.
Host An Italian-Themed National Lemonade Day Block Party
Include lemonade and limoncello for the adults and Sconza’s Lemoncello Chocolate Almonds for all. Add fun Italian games like Bocce Ball or Lupo Mangia Frutta, or Campara. Maybe play some Italian music while enjoying some prosciutto and anti-pasta.
A Simple Recipe For Fun on National Lemonade Day:
Making a small pitcher of refreshing lemonade only takes about 10 minutes, and it’s simple enough for any kid to make.
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1 cup of water
- 1 cup of lemon juice
- 2 to 3 cups of cold water to make to your liking
If you really want to tart it up and add some extra lemon flavor, you can use either a lemon-flavored syrup or add lemon juice and lemon zest after you have dissolved the sugar and removed it from the stove.
