After greasing the Slip 'n Slide with vegetable oil and shedding winter's fluffy bathrobe and insulated socks, the best way to celebrate summer's arrival is with a handful of velvety-soft frozen custard. The Ritter's menu features a wide variety of rotating flavors, including everything from the vanilla and chocolate classics to the fruit-based favorites such as blueberry and strawberry Italian ice to creations such as Boston crème pie and peanut butter. Order a cone of the flavor du jour ($2.29 and up), or opt for a signature Glacier ($3.19 and up), which is Ritter's frozen custard mixed with your topping(s) of choice and served upside down to confuse your already delicate perception of reality and emphasize the delicacy's extreme thickness. If a list of 25+ toppings dizzies your decision-making noodle, submit your fate to the friendly ice-cream slingers and opt for a signature sundae with pre-designed toppings ($3.99) such as the turtle sundae, a frozen-custard mountain capped with hot fudge, hot caramel, and whipped cream and crowned with butter-toasted pecans and a cherry. Celebrate your newfound superpowers and exploit your nemeses' weaknesses for bananas and chocolate with a banana split ($4.79).
