history-kidsThe Merlino family first opened a popsicle stand in 1946 that would soon become the home of the most popular frozen treat in the area: the Orange Freeze. The family produced various fruit varieties of the original freeze such as Strawberry and Lemon which would establish the Merlino name as a staple in Sacramento’s culture. For over 60 years the legacy has continued to provide families with refreshment and memories of the delicious concoction. Under the management of the Sacramento River Cats, there is a dedication to uniting the founding values of both organizations and delivering a quality product, just as the Merlino family envisioned.
