Italian Ice with Frozen Custard

iphone of our newest obsession

We’ve been secretly sneaking these in during our daily market stops. So we just have to share.

This sweet treat, another junk food confession, has saved our lives over the past two weeks. With a surprise spike in last Summer heat, everyone’s been whining and crying about how this 95 degree weather is melting our spirits. But not us. You know why? We’ve been fueling our sweaty days with this favorite sweet treat called italian ice and custard.

This deadly, but cold and refreshing, combination of different flavored italian ice topped with wonderful frozen custard is a new discovery to us.

It’s certainly been around, as we quickly learned from a google search. But while we’ve been living in a fast food cave, particularly when it comes to desserts, this little beauty of a treat was hidden from our junk food list. While other folks have been indulging and raving about these ice and custard combos nationwide at Rita’s , at Joe’s Garden Grove and Confetti in Costa Mesa, we’re slowly catching up by making up for all the lost years of eating it in the last two weeks.

How many of these have we had? A few. Well, a few more than most, but not as much as some.

Hope we’re not the only ones who have had these and are as addicted. Today we’re already hovering some new flavors. Perhaps a margarita ice with lemon custard on top? Or cactus cooler ice with salted caramel custard? And what’s you’re junk food confession for this weekend. Indulge us so we don’t feel so guilty.
