Limeade is a lime flavored drink sweetened with sugar. Most major beverage companies now offer their own brand of limeade, such as A.G. Barr plc of Glasgow and Newman's Own since 2004, with Minute Maid even introducing a Cherry Limeade drink in response to the popularity of Limeade.
Limes are more common in tropical countries such as Guyana and Trinidad so Limeade is popular.
Limeade is also widely available in Thailand and other parts of Southeast Asia due to the abundance of limes and relative rarity of lemons, as lemons are not a native species. A Thai-styled limeade tastes salty, and usually does not have any sugar.
