Joe's Italian Ice

Located near Disneyland, this 5-year-old spot has been cooling customers during the hot summer months. An offshoot of the Philadelphia Joe's Italian ice, their delicious Italian Ice is slowly gaining popularity. In what looks like an old taco stand with an over the top Italian colored awning, this unassuming business churns out some delicious treats. Their Italian ice is like a very refined Slurpee, but that description doesn't do it justice. It is made with fresh fruit juice and the texture and mouth feel is similar to ice cream but without the dairy. It is very refreshing; just the thing to hit the spot on a hot day.

The Strawberries and Cream Italian Ice, tastes like peak of the season strawberries mixed in with thick, heavy cream. It is not overly sweet, but has a dense texture like ice cream. As the fine ice crystals melt in your mouth, the flavors get more intense and burst like a Starburst fruit rainbow.

If you haven't given this place a try, it's definitely worth a try. The next time you're near Disneyland, drop by Joe's to start the day off right, or to end the day on a high note.
