A little background on the origins of Orange Julep

The origins of Orange Julep go back to the 1930s, when Hermas Gibeau, a Quebec businessman with a passion for food products, opened a small kiosk selling orange juice on Décarie Boulevard in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Gibeau had developed a special recipe for his orange juice, which quickly gained popularity with Montrealers.

In 1945, Hermas Gibeau opened a larger, more distinctive installation in the form of a large structure in the shape of an orange sphere, known as the "Gibeau Orange Julep". This structure quickly became an icon of the city of Montreal and is still a beloved landmark today.

Over the years, Gibeau Orange Julep has expanded its menu to include other items, such as hot dogs and hamburgers, but its orange juice remains the signature item. The drink is famous for its unique, refreshing flavor, and the bright orange building has become an iconic symbol of Montreal culture and gastronomy.
