They seem to be perfectly fine, but just watch the calories in your portion size. Those 23 calories are only for a 3 oz. serving. Who eats that?!!!

Zeffryn - It's actually really good!

Have you ever had a mr. misty, italian ices or a snow cone? Rita's water ice is like that, but concentrated... Imagine icy jello!! But the consistency of a smoothy.

I LOVE Italian Ice.. the best place to get it is in New York City and Long Island...mmmmm!!! They have sooo many flavors. Its like going to an ice cream parlor, you pick out a flavor, but its ice. There's no Ice cream at some of them. The flavors they have!! Black Cherry chocolate, Mint, raspberry vanilla. They are soooo good! When I go into NYC, I always get an ice. Until you've had that, you have had an Italian Ice... its different everywhere else.. The stuff elsewhere is good..its just totally different than what NYC has. :P

Zeffryn, you are too funny... I think water ice/italian ice is a northern thing...

Not sure if they carry them in the ice cream section of your grocery store. But it's definitely worth a peek.
