I really missed the lemonade slushies as well =(

Also, the one churro I got tasted like rubber. I am going to blame that one on bad luck though.

No. The churros were a fucking disaster this year. I spent all weekend looking for the slushies I was sure I had somehow missed.

my friend and I were craving the lemon slushies all day friday but decided to wait until saturday. when we found out they didn't have any, we didn't even say anything to each other. We just both instinctively went to the bar and drank jd until the pain left.

I was so disappointed my ritual was changed, that lemon ice is the first taste of the festival each year when i walk in

Corporate sponsors are known to wipe out competitors and you can't make margaritas with Frozen Minute Maid. Coincidence or conspiracy?

OK, this is one complaint I can get behind. The Minuite Maid lemonades are a bunch of ass, and the pretzel I got was stale. It bothered me for a total of 30 seconds and then I got on with having one of the greatest weekends of my life.

This, to me, was even sadder than Gary Numan canceling. :(

I'm glad i didn't buy those churros (i was about to :$) and also bummed about the fact that they changed to the minute maid frozen lemonades for 2010. To be honest, they are nowhere closed to the lemonade slushies. I've tried those slushies in the past with and without booze and they are simply badass tasting! once a friend made a margarita and it was really good. This year i got some tequila to repeat but sadly, that minute maid is just not good. Bring back the lemon slushies for 2011!!!

i always get one once i walk in towards the main stage. And wanted to let my gf try one since it was her 1st coachella, looked all over for them. the only that KINDA made up for it was the root beer floats (not the frozen one) they sold in the beer gardens.

I demand an explanation. Lemon Freshers are Coachella.

Although I saved a bunch of money buying just water, so it may have been a blessing in disguise.

um did the minute maids go up +$1 this year to $6? i coulda SWORN it was $5 last year.

when i went to the stand to purchase one this year and the guy said, "$6", i was all like, "EXCUSE ME, sir? Come again..."

and speaking of lemons.... that strawberry lemonade stand is a RIP-OFF if I've ever seen one...with the cup being filled to the brim with ice, A WHOLE RIND OF A LEMON, and two tablespoons of actual liquid.

The lemonade stand lemonade is infinitely better than minuite maid and goes very well w/ the airplane bottles of vodka we brought.

Yeah this was total bullshit. No tesla coils or slushy lemonades? A part of Coachella was lost.

I was looking forward to trying one of the frozen lemonades, so when I got there and they had the minute maid things I was like, "They're all orgasming over THIS?" It was good for what it was, I guess.

Couldn't agree with this action more.
I didn't get to come last year so I didn't know how fresh a tragedy this was.
Those not-as-good Minute Maids have been around forever though.

EXCELLENT ADD THOUGH? The Slushie place in the closest-to-entrance Food Court.
The one with the multiple flavor faucets (that were all the same
flavor by the end of the weekend, but still). Those were crazy delicious.

As was my iced coffee with energy shot from the JavaGoGo place or whatever.
And I came home with 1,345,622 pieces of 5 gum.
OH! And I drank about 956 free shots of Odwalla fruit juice between sets.

Y'know what? This weekend was delicious!
(Though I want those Lemon Slushees back...)

I like the Minute Maids enough, but they're just not worth the money to me, not even $5 really. I just never crave them the way I crave Lemon freshers.

Me too. I wanted to share the joy of frozen lemonades with Joann, but when I saw we were stuck with Minute Maid horribleness, I didn't even bother to talk to her about it. I was so disappointed.

Thats weird. I live out here in the desert and had to miss this year because I have a new job and they wouldn't let me out of it. But, I'm a server and I served the guy who does the frozen lemonades at Coachella a few weeks ago (he's a local, and does other events out here). He asked me if I knew of his product and I was like "YEAH! The ones from Coachella right?! I sneak rum or vodka in just to put in your tasty lemon drinks!" He laughed and said "yeah thats us!". Didn't say he wouldn't be there though...that sucks. Since he is local...I bet he's back next year.

I was constantly passing the stand and thinking I should get one. I had no idea it was a different vendor. Glad I abstained.
