Italian Ice

A city neighborhood cool refresher sold as street food from carts and storefront windows, Italian ice is finely chopped ice saturated with fruit or fruit concentrate. What Philadelphians know as water ice is essentially the same thing, although available flavors tend to be more fanciful and the ice itself fluffier.
