HOUSTON , March 21, 2012 (press release) – Minute Maid Light Lemonade is making its debut in a new, clear 59-ounce recyclable PET bottle that allows people to see the goodness inside. Also hitting store shelves is all-new Minute Maid Light Pink Lemonade, which gives people an entirely new twist on an all-time lemonade favorite.
