Rita's Italian Ice is what makes Summer extra special for me. I discovered it for the first time last year and it soon turned into our answer for everything:
What should we eat? Rita's
Where should we go? Rita's
Im bored. Lets go to Rita's
Its hot. Lets go to Rita's
Wanna go to Rita's? Uh, are you kidding?
The #1 reason I love it so much is that it reminds me of my friends (who have moved back to South Africa) and of last Summer. We would be out all day at BBQ's or the beach and on the drive home (with "I could really use a WISH right now" blaring on the car radio) we would pick up some 'swedish fish' or 'Pina Colada' italian ice and it would be the perfect end to another perfect sunny day. Yesterday I discovered Gelati. Im Hooked! There is no going back from the 'Juicy pear'/vanilla custard magical-ness that went down. No. Going. Back.
If you have a Rita's near you, get down there. You won't be sorry.
What is your favorite Rita's Italian Ice flavor?
