Through the Great Depression, World War II, the Baby Boom, the Beatles, Vietnam, Watergate, disco, and Reagan, Drake's sold chocolate cordials, orange marmalade sandwiches, pecan rolls, and limeade (fresh-squeezed, with the rind in the glass) to three generations of University of Michigan students....I know I did. I'm no longer married to my old Michigan classmate, but we loved the limeade, and now I'm with l.meade.
When the Michigan Alumnus solicited memories of Drake's from readers, a surprising number said they had dated their future spouses there.
