I am thoroughly addicted to Rita's Italian Ice. The closest one we have is like 30 mins away, but it's so worth the drive! For those of you who have not had the pleasure of having Rita's...it's one of the first things we will do when you come visit :) The closest thing there is to it is maybe a Slushee, but it's not as runny as that.
They're running a competition at the moment, to see if you can name the new mystery flavour. The mystery flavour was indeed quite mysterious. My guess is that it's some kind of berry flavour. Who knows, maybe it's some random South African berry that no-one else has ever heard of! The grand prize is free Rita's ice for a year (well actually 52 regular size ice coupons).
If you want to help me out...go to http://mysteryflavor.com and vote for "Berry Brr" or "Amazing Acai" (you can just search for them instead of looking through the whole list)
Even better than winning (or at least tough competition) would be getting hired to work there. Just turned in a resume/CV last night. Got really excited about the possibility of being accepted. It's in God's hands now though
