I have one across the street from my work, so I’m sure the whole company will be going there today.

I’m boring. I love me some cherry ice.

There’s one down the street from work, but I’ve never been!

I didn’t know they did this – I’m so jealous! The closest one I know of is in the district. Frown 

My favorite Italian ice is Green Apple, but I LOVE their Gelati.

I’ve heard there’s one downtown, but I’ve never been there!

No, but I used to growing up and I LOVED free ice day. We def went there every day after school, those were the good old days!

My favorite changed a lot, but I remember loving the vanilla, chocolate, mint chip and sometimes they had a cream soda type flavor that was amazing. I don’t like the kinds with chunks of fruit, but I would buy them for my Dad.

It originated in Philadelphia and where I grew up (suburbs of Philly) we had at least one in every town.  We would all race to the closest Rita’s after school on the first day of spring.  I love the wild black cherry, but I also love their Swedish Fish flavor!

My sister took off to celebrate free Ritas! Her and my mom are going to be on some type of sugar high.  Fiance and I went for the first time this season on Friday and after waiting five months, I had the hardest time picking the flavor…love cotton candy, swedish fish, juicy pear…but ended up with the sugar free citrus green tea because my first dress fitting is this Saturday.

@LadyBear:  There’s one on Little River Turnpike in Alexandria. The one in DC is in Chinatown on H St between 6th & 7th.

In MD where I’m from, they have it. I like the ice cream but not the ices. In NY, where I live, we don’t have it.

I’ve got one within walking distance of my shop!

My favorite – for now – is juicy pear.

I grew up near Rita’s, haven’t had it in forever though.

So sad.
