Local patrons at Rita's Italian Ice gave the treat good reviews Tuesday. "Fantastic," said Jamie Garrison, a mom who came for a free sample. "We will be back." Amy Weiss, 9, said, "I like all the flavors" while Levi Thomsen, 9, opined, "It's better than Slurpees," explaining that's because of "all the texture."
Rita's Italian ice comes in 65 flavors with the regular size priced at $2.79. Customers can get frozen custard with the ice for an extra charge. The line was out the door on a sunny and warm Tuesday afternoon as the new location in the Kings Village shopping center, 222-K Mount Hermon Road, offered free samples.
