The human mouth, which maintains a near-boiling temperature, needs to be constantly cooled by liquid-nitrogen pills or a jaw-mounted mouth fan. Take a more delicious route to cooling your maw with today's Groupon: for $3, you get $6 worth of italian ice and more at Rita's in Bartow.
Rita's dishes up a sweet selection of italian ice, cream ice (Rita's answer to ice cream), frozen custard, Gelati, and more. The italian ice, like ice sculptures of Roman emperors, comes in luscious flavors such as blueberry, root beer, juicy pear, and chocolate (regular size $2.29). The Gelati combines worlds by topping italian ice with frozen custard (regular size $3.09), while the Blendini mixes in cookies, candy, and other taste-bud-tempting treats ($3.75). Low-guilt options include the Slenderita, a fat-free version of the vanilla frozen custard, and sugar-free italian ice flavors are available for dentists who practice what they preach.
Rita's chills tongues and satisfies cravings with a selection of frozen treats including italian ice, sundaes, and shakes. Gelati layers italian ice in a variety of fruity flavors on top of creamy frozen custard, whereas mistos blend the two so that they can be sipped through a straw. And for those looking for a healthy option, the shop serves sugar-free italian ice.
