Growing up in an Italian neighborhood in North Jersey, we had the greatest Italian Ice around. We,however called it "lemon Ice" Maybe at one time,it only came in that one flavor. By the mid 50's there were a few other flavors. For example,my little sister would order a chocolate"Lemon" Ice...etc.
Today we have chains that sell "water" ice like Ritas and places around here called Ralph's that sell something closer to what we remember as "Lemon Ice" with the little pieces of lemon rind right in the ice.
Sometimes the Italian ice was called "Yum-Yum" in north Jersey...
What ever you call it,do you roadfooders remember good old fashioned Italian Ice (Lemon Ice)...and where can you get the REAL thing these days???? Post your favorite Italian Ice places.
