Pure, unadulterated, that's what Joseph and I felt as we pulled off the road at the Rita's Water Ice we had just discovered exists not too far from where I live in New Haven. Just up the road in Branford they serve the Philly classic, a staple of our lives all through growing up, and I found it just as the water ice season (spring through fall) is starting!!!
My buddy Joseph was in CT for a weekend visit, and Rita's was perhaps the gleaming pinnacle of our weekend wanderings. That said, it was an all around great couple of days.
For anyone who hasn't sampled water ice or wonders what that is, you should find a Rita's near you.
