Hagen’s The Original Orange Freeze #Carmichael

Hagen's - The Original Orange Freeze

When I was a child one of my favorite things to do was go over to my aunt’s house. Of course I wanted to go to play with my cousin but my aunt also lived right next to this place called Merlino’s Orange Freeze. They had the BEST orange frozen treats ever. I remember that my cousin and I would save up our money just so we could walk over and get one of the orange freeze treats.

When you think about something, sometimes it appears. Well just a couple weeks ago I was talking about the orange freezes I would have as a kid and I wish they still had them around. Well just this week I happened to drive past the old Merlino’s Freeze I used to go to as a child. It said Hagen’s The Original Orange Freeze on the front. I drove by and then had to stop and turn around. It was hot and one of those orange freeze drinks sure sounded delicious. I told my husband I had to find out if they had them.  We went inside and the first thing I asked when the gal asked me if she could help me was if the orange freezes where the same thing from over 20 years ago. When she said yes and told me the story of how the business got it’s new name, I was excited. Not excited that Merlino’s had went out of business, but that the new owner had kept the same recipes!

They have other flavors like watermelon, strawberry, pineapple, peach and more. I remember trying other flavors when I was young but the orange flavor was my all time favorite. They have these delicious drinks in three sizes too (small, medium, large). I got a medium size which was more than enough. I have also been craving another one of these since I had one.

While I was there I couldn’t pass up ordering a cheeseburger and fries too.

What I like about this little spot is that you can eat outdoors on the nice days. They offer both indoor and outdoor seating along with a great menu of food and friendly staff.

Would I come back? Yes, definitely! I can’t wait to have another Orange Freeze this summer and try out some of the other food on the menu.
