In Italy, ice is so abundant that it even comes in exotic flavors such as spaghetti meatballs and clam linguine, both of which have completely supplanted their unfrozen counterparts. Today's Groupon gives you a taste of this ethereal international delicacy: for $12, you get 10 regular Italian ices at Rita's (a $24 value). This Groupon is only valid at Rita's locations in Seabrook and Silver Spring.
Every day, Rita's serves up fresh, fruitified Italian ice ($2.39 for a regular) in more than 30 flavors, with sugar-free, fat-free, cholesterol-free, and trans-fat-free ices available. Achieve Ty Cobb–like levels of coolness with the Georgia peach ice, get caught in the rain of the refreshing piña colada, or visit the Sunshine State without leaving the comforts of your bomb shelter with the Florida orange. Other flavors include strawberry, root beer, Swedish Fish, chocolate chocolate chip, vanilla, key lime, the unearthly RitaBerrious (formerly Mystery Ice), and even a Peeps flavor. All ices are served within 36 hours of mixing, ensuring that Rita's customers are getting drinks as pure as the driven Technicolor snow.
Split your 10 regular-sized Italian ices with the other members of your KC and the Sunshine Band tribute band, or keep them all to yourself for nourishment during your attempt to break the world record for total postage stamps licked in an hour.
