History of the Limber

This dessert is named after Charles A. Lindbergh, who was the first pilot to fly across the Atlantic Ocean. When he flew to Puerto Rico, the locals offered him a frozen fruit juice, which he enjoyed, so the people named it Limber in his honor. Nowadays, Limber can be found at numerous roadside fruit stands and gas stations in Puerto Rico.
