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 ices and more at Rita’s Italian Ices in Glen Cove. This Groupon expires August 19, 2011.
With a dozen or more flavors concocted on-site daily, Rita’s frozen desserts are tossed out at the ripe-old age of 36 hours so that newborn ices can be enjoyed with youthful gusto. Mouth-water turns to ice with fresh-fruit induced, trans-fat-free italian ices such as juicy pear, kiwi-strawberry, chocolate-peanut-butter, and pina colada, including a variety sweetened only with Splenda and baby giggles ($2.50–$3.75). Rita’s smooth, signature old-fashioned custard gives spoons something to cling to as they tunnel under added hot fudge or caramel toppings ($3–$4.25). Figure-watchers can extract rich flavor from a soft-serve, zero-fat version of custard, the Slenderita ($3–$4.25). Rita’s most popular delight, the Gelati, layers refreshing ices upon fluffy custards ($4–$4.50) and the Misto whirls frozen treats into a single, sippable cup, ideal for toting along to fire-eating lessons ($4.25–$4.75).
