Eleven of us from the workplace soda tasting crew tried nine different lemonades as an "End of Summer" event. The results were:

BEST:

BRAND TOP 3 NO. 1 SCORE
SIMPLY 10 8 18
MINUTE MAID 9 2 11
TURKEY HILL 5 1 6
WAWA 5 0 5
TROPICANA 2 0 2
COUNTRY TIME 1 0 1
NESBITT'S 1 0 1
SIMPLE LEAF 0 0 0
CALYPSO 0 0 0

TOTAL 33 11 44

WORST:

BRAND BOTTOM 3 NO. 9 SCORE
CALYPSO 9 4 13
NESBITT'S 8 4 12
SIMPLE LEAF 8 2 10
TROPICANA 5 0 5
COUNTRY TIME 2 1 3
TURKEY HILL 1 0 1
MINUTE MAID 0 0 0
WAWA 0 0 0
SIMPLY 0 0 0

TOTAL 33 11 44

We pretty much all agree that of the 9 we tried (and I know there are dozens, we just kept it down to the ones we could find without much effort) Simply and Minute Maid are the cream of the crop with Turkey Hill and WaWa a distant 3rd and 4th, respectively. We are not so unanimous on worst, with Calypso, Nesbitt’s and Simple Leaf each scoring high on the yuck scale.

My family prefers Newman's Own (http://www.newmansown.com/product_detail.aspx?cat_id=6&prod_id=43) for store bought brands, but nothing beats freshly squeezed lemon juice mixed with cane sugar, cold water, and ice.
