As Perennial as the Grass...


Rita's!!!! Anyone even remotely close to the Delaware Valley knows that the first day of spring brings with it one of the best gifts - and it is free... Sure, we look forward to bright crisp blue skies and fragrant flowers... who doesn't? But on the first day of spring each year Rita's offers everyone a FREE water ice!!! What have I said here before about loving things that are free??

Say it with me... Free water ice tomorrow?? HECK YES! Don't miss it!!!

Those of you who live elsewhere - well - sorry. ;)

I've seen those signs before... 'free beer tomorrow!' .... of course, when you get there the following day, the sign still says tomorrow :(

Anyhoo, what the flip is water ice? isn't it just frozen water? And what did Delaware?

You poor, POOR thing! Italian Water Ice is sort of like a sorbet. It is usually a little softer and smoother in texture - it is a wonderful summertime treat - Rita's is a chain of stores that sells this exclusively and as such are only open March-October. There are other places that, IN my opinion, sell a better quality of water ice - but you just can't beat the free part - and it is a First Day of Spring ritual here to go git sum!

When you come visit me, I shall make sure you have your fill of water ice! :)

It's already on my calendar! I gotta gets me a lemon & chocolate with the chocolate on top (so that by the time I have finished eating the chocolate & get to the lem, a little of the chocolate has melte in to the lemon, giving it a subtle taste of chocolate.....it's a science, really!)

OMG! You're a genius! I shall have to try that!!!!

Thanks for the info... yet another reason (other than the bears) to come visit you :)

Do they have banana flavor?

DaisyBug said...

Yes they do - and actually if you look on the site I see they have expanded and now have locations in FL! Check it out!

I feel very left out. Is it just me or is the word "water ice" kinda redundant? Still, by saying water ice... somehow it makes me more thirsty. wierd.

DaisyBug said...

I'm sorry, Michael... Did you check the site to see if there is maybe one near you?

It is very yummy - I promise. If you ever have the chance to try some, please do!
