We have found THE BEST water ice place in the Philadelphia region!! For you non-Philadelphians, water ice is neither water nor ice, it is a version of shaved ice but smooth like a slurpee, yet you eat it with a spoon. My description doesn't really do it justice, you just have to come out here and try it.
Anyway, the place is called George's Water Ice. It is on Marshall Road in Upper Darby just near Hampton Road. John drove past it awhile ago and wondered if it was any good so last week he took us all out for a taste. He said it is like the water ice from his childhood... AMAZINGLY GOOD! So good we went back again last night
So far we have tried grape, cherry, blueberry, strawberry lemonade, and rainbow. All of them have been incredible. The strawberry lemonade was a real hit! And yes, Jamie, they do have pina colada! It is even super cheap; $1.00 for a small and $1.50 for a medium. The only problem I have found with it so far is that it is so yummy you tend to eat it too fast and get major brain freeze. That happened to James last night, poor guy!
So everybody should go and try it as soon as you can. You'll probably see us there.
