Rita's Water Ice

A discussion with a friend today about Lancaster County Ice Cream (Produced by the Amish...I tried to find a site to make a link, but then it occured to me that the amish more than likely wouldn't HAVE a site...) made me a little nostalgic for Rita's Water Ices that I enjoyed so much while I was in Philly. There was nothing like slurping down a passion fruit gelato made fresh from the fruit after a long hot day tracting the Philly streets in bass flats, panty hose and a DRESS! Open from like April to October, the seasonal treats made my day more than once. I even ate a modified philly sandwich today and pondered going back there for the first time in 7 years. Gads.

I've got to check out these Rita's Water Ices. Better yet, come out and we can daytrip up there.

Besides, we can make your lifetime dream of running through a horse plowed field in Lancaster County a reality.
