A frothy orange milkshake just like those sweet drinks you used to find at the mall.
In 1926, a Mr. Julius Freed opened an orange juice stand in Los Angeles, only to find that although his product was excellent, business was not. One of Freed’s associates, a chemist by trade, decided to experiment with orange juice augmentation formulas, and through said finagling formulated a familiar orange milkshake concoction that is with us to this day.
