A restaurant calls Simply Lemonade “fresh-squeezed” to customers in a TikTok video.

Bombastic side eye! In an Aug. 5, 2023, TikTok video, creator CM (@caitt98) shared that a FlyRite Chicken location at Austin airport is trying to pass off Simply Lemonade as a freshly squeezed drink.

As the video starts, the creator shares her experience and shows a worker pouring Simply Lemonade into a drink dispenser.

“So I went to the FlyRite in the Austin airport and ordered their 'fresh lemonade' just to see them do this right after,” the creator said as a woman took off the top of a bottle that clearly shows the Simple Lemonade logo.

As the video continued, a man walked by and the worker continued filling the drink dispenser with the lemonade. The creator then zooms in to the restaurant’s digital menu displayed above that shows them offering “fresh lemonade” for $4.39.

Not to mention, another employer can be seen using her mouth to open the safety seal on another bottle.

TikTok users are roasting FlyRite as a fast-food chain and have shared similar experiences.

Baby, folks have been bamboozled, hoodwinked, and led astray by Flyrite. And while the creator’s TikTok has caused people to throw shade at Flyrite, others have shared similar experiences with other fast food chains and other restaurants.

“$4.39 a cup and those bottles are like $2.50 each 😳,” one person shared.

Interestingly, many folks were disturbed by a worker using her mouth to rip open the safety seal off of one of the Simply Lemonade bottles. And naturally, folks want disciplinary action to be taken since it’s a clear violation of food safety.

“Send this to corporate. Not that chick opening the drink with her mouth,” one person demanded.

“We are just going to ignore the lady that bites the seal off the bottle with her mouth 👀,” one user asked.

As of now, FlyRite corporate has yet to make a statement about the video. However, we expect to hear something since this video has been viewed over 250,000 times.
