Americans who enjoy italian ice are often surprised when they travel to Rome and find that freezing water does not automatically make it taste like watermelon. Revel in sweet international treats with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of frozen desserts at Strollo's Lighthouse Italian Ice in Point Pleasant Beach.

Founded by native Italian Tony Strollo, the sweet palate pleasers at Strollo's Lighthouse have charmed the mouths of enough shore visitors with their old-world recipes to earn a visit from Food Network's FoodNation with Bobby Flay. Confectioners of frozen fare have crafted a variety of italian-ice flavors out of the original family recipe, tempting taste buds with such delicacies as pistachio, cappuccino, and mango ices. Like a back-spinning badminton player or a passive-aggressive subpoena, soft-serve ice cream lures in all comers with the standard vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry. A straightforward dish or cone ($2.85+) delights fans of classic sweets, and savorers of gulpable scrumptiousness can enjoy a shake or float ($4.85).

Strollo's Lighthouse Italian Ice

In the 1930s, women in skirted bathing suits and gents shaded under boater hats flocked to the beaches of the Jersey Shore. When they grew hungry or hot, they strolled the boardwalk looking for treats, often intrigued by the frosty cups of flavored ice sold by a young Italian immigrant. That man, Tony Strollo, crafted ices from old family recipes in his garage before shuttling them to the beach in a gasping, converted bus. Over the years, Tony’s frosty treats became staples for vacationing families and discerning hummingbirds. When Tony passed his sugar-stained recipes on to his son in the '70s, Ray faced the challenge of meeting the growing demand. He tinkered with the recipes to make them in bulk within the churning, swirling belly of a soft-serve machine.

Today, a third-generation Strollo keeps the summer tradition alive at Strollo's Lighthouse Italian Ice, which has expanded to four storefronts and earned a feature on the Food Network. Still homemade, the nectarous delights include rich ice cream as well as many flavors of Italian ice. Hot from the still-popular beaches or virtual summer camp, modern families clamor for flavors of root beer, pistachio, blue raspberry, coconut, and Oreo.
