We all scream for ice cream, and Italian Ice. Derived from the frozen Italian delight, Granita, what we Americans know as Italian Ice is primarily found in the Northeast.

This is a combination of shavings of ice off of a big block with syrup. Snow Cones are similar but used crushed ice instead. Philadelphia and South Jersey natives refer to it as Water Ice. The basic difference between Ice Cream and any of these versions of Italian Ice is that Ice Cream is made with milk and Italian Ice is made with water. Either way, it’s always a good time for either one! Celebrate your spring with a frozen treat from your local Ice/Ice Cream shop!!
