Good Morning! I greet you today with some great news for all you out there with a sweet tooth. Popular Philadelphia-born frozen Italian ice dessert place has finally landed in Manila with their first branch located in Greenhills!
I visited the new place which took over Milky Way's old spot across Crystal jade and here's what they had to offer:
Signature Italian Ice which is NOT the same as shaved ice. It is much smoother because it's made with the same technique used for creating ice cream...sort of like a sorbet, but still different :P Ingredients are added while simultaneously mixing and freezing for an ultra-smooth texture. Choose from over 65 mouth-watering varieties with real fruit!
Old Fashioned Frozen Custard:
This award winning Old-Fashioned Frozen Custard is rich and creamy. Its made with high quality ingredients such as eggs, cream, and sugar. Unlike soft serve ice cream which doesn't contain eggs and is most of the time 50% air, frozen custard is dense and creamy with a similar consistency to room temperature butter.
Cream Ices - A creamier version of Italian Ice that puts a twist on classic ice cream flavors. Slightly more indulgent, yet refreshing.
Light Vanilla Custard - 60% less fat! Great alternative for those on a diet, honestly tasted just like the regular custard for me.
Gelati – alternating layers of our famous Italian Ice and Old-Fashioned Frozen Custard.
Misto® - A combination of your favorite Italian Ice and creamy Custard blended together. The Misto is a Gelati you can drink with a straw! (love their cotton candy flavor! :P)
Blendini® - Old-Fashioned Frozen Custard + your favorite Italian Ice, and a delicious topping blended together.
All Custard Blendini® - Old-Fashioned Frozen Custard and a delicious topping blended together.
Milkshake - a classic milkshake but richer and creamier; combines milk and Old-Fashioned Frozen Custard; blended together in a variety of unique flavors, then topped with whipped cream and a cherry.
Frozen Lemonade - combination of Alex’s Lemonade Italian Ice blended with any other Ice flavor of your choice, makes for a refreshing summertime beverage, made with real fruit.
Rita's is a fun and casual place to visit with the family for dessert. Prices are very reasonable, servings are generous and everything is fresh. Products that don't move within 36 hours are thrown out to ensure that their guests get the best taste and value for their money.
