CRESTWOOD, MO (KTVI)-- Nearly half a year has past and Albert Pujols is still the hot topic around the lunch counters of St. Louis.
Many still have a sour taste in their mouths from the way he left town.
"Absolutely it leaves a sour taste in your mouth," says customer Noel Zimmerman.
The owner of King Edwards Chicken in Crestwood wants to heal the hearts of Cardinal Nation. Randy Shore is offering a lemon Freeze dessert at the price of Pujols' daily batting average. Today's tasty treat went for $2.13.
"The Pujols' lemon freeze is as cold as Albert's bat," says Shore.
Randy Shore hopes Albert's bat will awaken so he can return to making a profit selling his dessert.
But for now customers will just have to pay the price of Albert's disappointing batting average.
