Rita's Italian Ice - Center City East: $5 for $10 Worth of Frozen Treats at Rita's Italian Ice

This deal is sold out. Click here to buy today's side deal, $18 for a Men's Haircut from Bernard's Salon & Spa ($36 Value).

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 $5, you get $10 worth of Italian ice and frozen treats at Rita's on South St.

Every day, Rita's serves up fresh, fruitified Italian ice ($1.89–$3.48) in more than 30 flavors (eight are sugar free), including strawberry, root beer, Swedish Fish, chocolate chocolate chip, pina colada, vanilla, key lime, and the unearthly RitaBerrious (formerly Mystery Ice). Along with creamy ice, Rita's also sells icy cream. Case in point: Rita's famously frozen old-fashioned custard ($2.86–$4.30), a robust dish that—like revenge—is best served cold in a cup, cone, or overflowing El Camino truck bed. Rita's custard involves a different freezing process than ice cream and boasts a higher egg-yolk ratio, for a creamy texture that makes regular ice cream feel like gravel sprinkled with sandpaper shreds. Rita's most popular frozen treat, gelati ($3.94–$4.48), takes its cue from brunch, twilight, and sporks and blends two great things to create an even greater thing—in this case, the flavorful variety of Italian ice with the smoothitude of frozen custard. Rita's also offers an assortment of specialty Misto shakes, fat-free soft-serve Slenderitas, and frozen-coffee Ritaccinos, all of which make for a tasty treat as well as a deliciously soothing topical treatment for chicken pox.

Reviews

Yelpers love Rita's on South Street, giving it four stars:

  • I typically mix water ice with a custard but I tired the seasonal Peeps flavor and really enjoyed it. Rita's never fails to deliver. – Nicole S., Yelp
  • It's the best cool, frozen, custard-y, refreshing, snack you can have on a hot summer day...or any time! I just wish they were open year round!! – tk g., Yelp
  • [The custard] is infinitely creamier and tastier than ice cream or frozen yogurt. It's just a whole experience, in a class by itself. – Evann G., Yelp
