What's in Italian ice?
Rita’s Italian Ice is an East Coast institution. Each year on the first day of spring, every store gives away free Italian ice (also called water ice) to all customers. While I’ve never gotten in the long lines to get a freebie, many of my friends will travel from store to store to get more than one free water ice. It’s a tradition for some families.
