While I have spent a good portion of my life living on the west coast, I lived half of my childhood on the east coast. New Jersey (don’t judge) and Pennsylvania to be exact.
Dessert was always a much anticipated treat in our home, and while we didn’t get it all the time, I have so many fond memories of sharing dessert with my family as a child. My absolute ultimate favorite memories are the ones when my sisters and I would indulge in the amazingness that is Italian Ice (or as we called it, Water Ice (pronounced Wuh-ter Ice)). This tasty frozen treat is a creamy, frozen fruity flavored ice in a cup. I really only remember eating it in two flavors- Cherry (Charry) and Lemon.
I can distinctly remember enjoying a lemon wuh-ter ice out in front of my childhood home when it started to rain. All three of us girls stayed outside and danced in the rain, all while taking short breaks to scrape a layer of ice off the top of our cup.
We moved to California when I was 10, and gone were those days. There is no such thing as Italian Ice out here!! It is a rare treat you may find at a fair, but not found in stores.
Fast forward about 15-20 years, and I was pregnant with my son. I couldn’t believe the intense cravings I had for Italian Ice! This frozen treat I hadn’t had in so very long was taking over my every thought! I bought popsicles, thinking it would help…but it didn’t. The consistency must have been what I craved. I headed to the store one day (probably in some craving rage) to buy a cold dessert, and lo and behold, in the freezer section I found it!!!!!
Someone must have seen me aimleesly wandering the freezer aisle mumbling about wuh-ter ice and made the call to Philly to get some.
That day-when I had my first italian ice in 15+ years-was a day that goes down in my frozen treat history.
As parents, we all have kids who love frozen treats, and let’s not lie…we love them too! I haven’t met an ice cream sandwich I didn’t like, and I still love me some italian ice.
