If you've never been to Rita's you don't know what you're missing! They even have sugar free flavors.

We just absolutely love Rita's - My boyfriend, our dog "Odie", and myself visited Rita's several times during our latest trip to the East Coast. The boys absolutely loved it.......They are hooked! :) Waiting for the day when they get to St. Louis. They are getting closer to us YAY!!!!! Best Italian Ice around

I used to go to Rita's on FREE water ice day each year so I could try a new flavor. Over the years, I have not been particularly impressed with the flavors that I have tried. I have tried regular peach, blueberry, lemon, cherry, mango and cookies-n-cream over the years. The lemon and cherry were decent, but the blueberry and... More
