“We’re always trying to save money,” Alana Thompson’s mama says in this week's episode of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.

Always the entrepreneur, seven-year-old Alana came up with the idea of making her super sugary concoction as a way to help pay for her bedazzled dresses and accessories.

“Honey Boo Boo had the idea of making a lemonade stand to save money for the pageants,” June says.

Pageants a big investment. I raise four kids and I’m able to do pageants as I budget. Honestly, we budget and I try to save money any way I can.”


June shares her secret recipe for making the lemonade (which sounds very similar to her famous Go Go Juice.)

“The secret is a lot of sugar and a lot of lemon juice. The lemonade has got a good five pounds of sugar and like 2 gallons of lemon juice.”
